Expecting so much more based on photos and price!

Pros: The river view from the balcony, and the Old World exterior of the buildings were nice.
Cons: The things already mentioned in the experience box above.
Location: We stayed here because it was close to the Antietam Battlefield and Harper's Ferry National Historic Park.
When we arrived to check in , we discovered that there had been a mix-up at the hotel about the date that we had booked a room, so after waiting a considerable amount of time for the staff to find us a room for that night we had actually scheduled, we didn't get the room that I had reserved online. We had reserved a room with two queen beds in one of the chalets with a river view, and instead got one king bed with a studio couch that was basement level at the bottom of steep stairs that were dirty and musty smelling, and it felt and smelled like going down into a basement. We also found that the satellite tv received only a few channels, and couldn't be viewed from the sitting area because the tv cabinet door blocked the screen from there. Also, the bath mat was already wet and dirty when we went to use the shower, and the balcony chair cushions were damp, apparently from the air conditioner from above dripping on them, and we got our clothing wet after sitting in them. We were tired from a day of traveling and had planned on eating at the hotel inn, but realized from the information binder in the room that more formal dress than we had planned on was expected to dine there, so instead, we drove around the area to find somewhere else to eat, finding few options. The overall hotel experience was quite disappointing given the impressive photos of it on the internet, and the expensive price of the room. I did let the hotel know our concerns on their check-out evaluation form.
