Best Ever

We have stayed at posh resorts but while Ruttgers isn’t fancy, it was the best vacation ever. It felt like home, food was great (I even bought soup in quantity to bring home). People were great too. Very warm and friendly. They clearly love their jobs. We met people who have been coming back every year for decades. We will now be one of those people. Thank you.

The room was very clean.. The steps, sidewalk and parking lot was very icy. Better cleaning would of made it safer.

Not as expected

Toilet seat had feces on bottom. Queen room apparently didn't mean queen size bed. Bed was double sized as my queen at home is much larger. Had to put one leg in bathtub to sit on toilet. Barely enough room to walk around end of bed. Had to go sideways. Decided not to use shower as room was extremely small.
