When you walk into this hotel you see a quaint, historic place. You smile and say to yourself... wow what a neat place..... Then you go to check in , and you encounter the owner.......... He is rude and has the attitude of an elitist. Don't ask for anything, because he will be angry and rude and act as if... More

The room was very small, but it worked just fine for our overnight stay. The bar area is very lovely and there is a nice outdoor patio. I had mixed feelings on the owners. While we did not have any issues, they did not seem overly friendly. We ate breakfast in the morning there, but I think they were short... More

Thank you for your kind review. The room reserved was one of our smallest rooms. Unfortunately, the building was built in 1879 and some renovations are just not possible. We often wish they were. We strive very hard to please all of our guests, and yes we were a bit stressed due to employees needing the same day off. We... More

Very small room, but fine for a couple. Stand up shower, no tub in reg. room. Friendly staff & very nice bartender. Attached restaurant had good looking food. Overall a nice small quaint old hotel. Unfortunately didn't see the ghost, Abigail!

We are Hilton Honors members, so we are used to Hiltons. But this was an interesting little hotel in a great location. The owner has a big personality and tries to make sure all your needs are met. There is a bar, restaurant, ice cream store and after hours pizza. The room was a bit small -- but that's the... More

This was a great place to stay. We loved the appearance and arrangement of our room. The beds were great and had lots of pillows. Hart, Margaret and Dawn were great hosts. The bathroom light went out on our visit and Hart came and fixed in within 10 minutes. Margaret waited on us in the restaurant and made us great... More

We had a standard superior room, very nice, very clean. Our friends paid a little more for a river view room, and it has a neat balcony, but calling it river view is a stretch....you can see the river, but it is not on the river and there are houses obstructing most of the view. Overall a very nice historic... More
