The Cobblestone Motel is like a dingy, smelly basement apartment with second-hand carpeting and furnishings. "Lipstick on a pig" is the descriptive phrase that leaps to mind. If you regularly spend weekends in prison, then, yes, the Cobblestone is like your home away from home. It's a rundown cinder cellblock.
We'd advised them when we would arrive but, and despite their claim that their office hours are 10AM-10PM 7 days a week, the office was empty when we arived at 8PM. A barely visible hand-written note taped to the office door advised us that we had to let ourselves in.
The note said to come at 10AM to pay and we would have gladly done so had we been able to tolerate the thought of remaining there any longer than we had to. We fled at 6AM and left full payment and a generous tip in cash for the one night. She called later that day and left a message asking us to call to discuss why we left and "violated her trust in human nature." Please. I e-mailed and asked when we could speak the following day. Instead of responding, she charged an additional $189.20 to our charge card for early departure (we'd booked 4 nights).
Our room had an obvious fungal problem. We were told in an e-mail that it had a "new carpet and bed." I guess if you haven't owned it before it's "new" to you, but these things were far from new.
The place was gross. It stunk inside and out. There was a musty smell in the room. My sinuses clogged up immediately, alerting me to the fungal problem. The hard bed, which slanted to one side, had a moth-eaten blanket and prison pillows - flat and hard, adding to the feeling that you were in solitary confinement.
The "outdoor furniture" had a lovely sheen of filth on it, adding to the negative cub appeal of the place. To top it off there was an open garbage area right next to room.
"Amenities?" Forget it. We reequested a VCR, but that request was never acknowledged and one was not provided. So much for taping the World Cup games.
Their energy conservation policy translated to lamps so weak that you can barely read by them. This was probably intentional in order to downplay the overall tawdriness of the place. The exception to this is the bright light right outside the door that stays on all night, destroying any opportunity to get a good nights' sleep.
See it before you book it. And pay close attention to the early departure and cancellation policies - you'll be held accountable when you don't want to stay.
