    Poor 2.0
    Smells bad
    It smelled so bad we couldn’t stay the second night. Location is great but we couldn’t do it. Old musty gross moth balls smell. We paid for two nights and left the second and went to another hotel that had availablity!

    Good 6.0
    Photographs painted a different picture
    First let me say I understand the season was not nearly in full swing so a lot of hotels were just getting sorted and prepped for the upcoming season. I don’t think that really was the case for this resort. The pictures really don’t paint an accurate picture. You drive up to a building with no signage or indication of where to check in. It is very outdated and has an overall musty smell (think carpets were cleaned in the fall and then locked up so they never really dried.) The bathroom just had an overall icky feel with mold along the caulk and a dirty toilet collecting sediment at the bottom. Bed linens were clean and comfortable but the resort as a whole was not what I expected when booking. Perhaps it shines come summer but what I experienced was lack luster and had I paid summertime prices for what I received I would be quite upset. Location wise it is just outside of the main town however I wouldn’t say it’s a safe walk as there are no sidewalks or shoulders on the roads leading into town.

    Very good 8.0
    My husband and I come here often. We love the outdoor hot tub! Melanie and her staff are always very helpful and accommodating. Melanie has been very good to us over the years and we will continue to go to the Rhumbline Resort.

    A place to sleep
    It’s too bad the owners don’t spend some money fixing this place up. The location is great.
