Verified Reviews of The Iron Horse Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Price does not match experience."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
We woke up in the middle of the night to water dripping from the air conditioning unit in the ceiling. Water dripped all night and all morning. Giant puddle near the closet. We were lucky our shoes were not near it; otherwise they would’ve been soaked. When we informed the front desk, they simply said, “oh yeah, that happens when it gets humid. We will just have someone look at it when you leave.” The housekeeping staff also forgot to turn off the alarm on the alarm clock next to the bed; an alarm went off at 6:00 AM on a Saturday morning and woke us up. Small oversight, but surprising given the cost of a one night stay.
