Nice people, terrible beds.
Very nice people, dated hotel room with a very, very old bed. The headboard was loose between the bed and the wall. Thank goodness my wife was not with me, so there was no amorous activity going on in that bed or we would have made quite a racket! Humor aside, the mattress felt like it was 40+ years old. It was the worst and least comfortable night of sleep I can remember.
