On the third night I was out on the hotel's balcony, looking into the mountains. Eventually I got up from a chair an leaned on the wooden railing of the balcony. Almost immediately the railing gave way and I fell down about nine feet with it over a sharp concrete ledge onto the concrete walkway. After laying there helpless in excruciating chest pain I could not find my cell phone to call for help. After over one hour later the only other hotel guest came home and tried to help me up. My hip and chest were hurting terribly so we decided he would drive me to the ER in the next town, Silva, NC. There they found three broken ribs and severely bruised hip. After finally getting home a week later I retained an attorney to sue for damages and pain and suffering. It took almost a year for my ribs to heal and my hip was now found to be one inch out of alignment, making it painful and hard for me to walk. This took again several months of physical therapy to correct. By the way, the aforementioned balcony railing consisted of old rotten wood, held together only by the paint on it. Why did I wait three years to inform you? Since it was under litigation I was not allowed to talk about the case. Now I have just been informed by my attorney that the owners of Jarrett House hotel have filed for bankruptcy some time ago and never even carried liability insurance. I sincerely hope that you take this hotel off of your booking list. Please contact me if you need further information.

I reserved one of their courtyard rooms because it was ground level and I knew I wouldn't have to climb stairs to get to it. I have severe back problems and a rod in my back that prevents me from being able to climb stairs. So after I checked-in, the front-desk clerk led me to my room and began climbing a flight of stairs. I stopped her immediately, explaining my condition and the reservation I had made. She turned around and stated she would check if she had another room. A few minutes later she said a courtyard room was available and handed me a key. Before I carried my luggage to the room, I walked over to check it out and when I opened the door, heat from the room, somewhere around 85 degrees hit me in the face. And it was not a cold day, it was about 80 degrees outside. I looked at the beds and they were unmade, the room was dirty and had not been cleaned. I have never been sent to an unclean room before. I walked back to the front-desk, explained the situation and asked to be refunded my money. The attendant was very apologetic and kind and gave me a receipt that was to credit my account; that was 3 days ago and the credit has yet to show up on my debit card. I am cautiously optimistic that it still will. If not, I will be filing a claim.

The main building is over 100 years old and under renovation. I was put in an "outside" room which is a separate building. My room had 2 queens and enough additional space to host a dinner party for 20. The room was recently renovated. Clean, with nice fixtures. Legacy fixtures (AC unit and heater) were in odd locations but clean and functional. The painters did excellent work but the drywall crew needs training. The hotel is right on the "main drag" through Dillsboro and my room was 10' from the road. Traffic was essentially non-exisitent from about 9:00 PM to 7:00 AM so the location was not a problem
