Stayed here for one night on August 9. We had a comfortable stay in a room that contained a desk, fridge and an accent chair. The room décor was fresh and pleasant. All furniture and carpet was in good shape. The mattress on the bed was a tempurpedic (memory foam). The bathroom was clean and everything in good repair. This... More

The hotel is adequate in terms of comfort, with nice touches in some ways (memory foam beds - it beat an Intercontinental I have visited recently in bed quality) but outdated and quirky in some other ways. However the looks, the fact that the owners manage to keep it very quiet, the owner's willingness to open the German restaurant in... More

I'm amazed that the owners haven't acted upon the negative reviews that I've read here and on other travel sites. They would have more customers and would be able to charge more for their rooms. 1. Jill, one of the owners, needs an attitude adjustment. 2. An elevator for staff only in a 5-floor hotel? Really? No ADA accomodations? That... More

Imagine visiting an elderly aunt who has a huge, sprawling house that she can't keep up, but it's clean and sort of cozy. That's the Pines. Shabby but comfortable. The wallpaper is peeling but my bed was super comfortable and the room was huge and clean. We were thrilled. Made a reservation for a room with two beds and instead... More

This is not your typical hotel. It is missing a lot of the amenities that are commonplace now. The wi-fi was not good anywhere but the lobby, the TV was tiny, air conditioning was just adequate, not enough towels and not as clean as we'd like. But we had an interesting experience there none the less...every room has different decor,... More

My partner and I visited over the July 4 weekend. I knew about the lack of elevator beforehand so I requested a room on a lower floor. We got a room only 2 flights up. The room itself was a nice size with a nice sized bathroom. I did not do a thorough check of the room's cleanliness. My priority... More

Disgustingly cheap and overly priced inn! Worst experience I've ever had in a hotel/inn/motel while vacationing and I’ve stayed in dozens! Downstairs and the lobby area smelled moldy as if you were in an antique shop. You could also see spider webs on the stairs and windowsills in the room. Blanket stained, too firm beds, dirty carpet, wallpaper peeling, etc.... More

Booked following the good reviews on line. I must have stayed in a room that had not been rated before, the hotel has lots of old charm about it and the lady on the front desk was very nice. there is no lift and it made it very hard getting luggage upto the first floor. Room needed modernising and didnt... More

This is a quaint old hotel. Very nostalgic and the German old world charm was just fantastic. We ate dinner at their restaurant, a limited menu, but it was very satisfactory. After dinner we sat in their sitting room in front of the fireplace enjoying a cocktail and relaxing for the evening. The beds are very comfortable. I believe they... More
