Thank you for your feedback. I don't know what the terrible smell was that you mentioned but I apologize that you experienced it. When I checked, the sofa and rug did not give off any odor like what you mentioned. It is possible that another guest's cooking created some unfamiliar odors, I'm not sure but either way I understand that it was unpleasant for you. I do know that the temperature was high during your stay and that may have had an impact.
The house is a character home from the 1950s, and while it's not a top choice for someone looking for a modern and newly renovated atmosphere, many of my other guests have found it a comfortable, cost-effective and pleasant place to stay. I'm pleased to ensure that my guests enjoy a very affordable rate and a welcoming atmosphere for a simple and conveniently located furnished room. I recommend in the future that if you're looking for a more updated space, to select a listing in a higher price-point.
