Nice rooms - well appointed and we paid extra for a river view... Beautiful! Only and biggest problem is that the bedroom walls are very thin and we heard folks on both sides of us most of the night... Would probably not stay again due to the noise.

Thank you for your review, Not sure what happened, but on our river rooms, we do have a problem when people leave their slider doors open to the balcony. That does get especially noisy if both rooms happen to have their sliders open. We all ways take care of problems if possible. With a phone call to the front desk... More

Wonderful river and bridge view, terrific bed, great coffee and breakfast. Décor, including the rubber ducky, tasteful, restful, clean. Loved staying here and will be back. From the front desk check in to departure I felt like I was visiting a very dear friend and staying in their guest room. Walked down the street for a selection of restaurants, shops,... More

Right on the River looking at the bridge, recommend you ask for a riverview room, some rooms don't have a view. Convenient to walking into the little old town of Florence and walking under the bridge is beautiful. Lots of nice restaurants and touristy stores, and art galleries. The room is nicely appointed and clean with a comfortable bed. Just... More

Room was clean (but small), furnishings up to date. View of the river was great. Location is an easy walk to old town. Breakfast was only so-so...there was a shortage of everything, and no coffee to be had other than what we made in the room.

I loved it here. We splurged for a river view overlooking the dunes and bridge. Fantastic! The rooms are very nice and cozy with a country feel. Very clean rooms and very comfortable bed. Everything you need is in the room. I liked the added touch of make up removal wipes for the ladies and the rubber duck in the... More

We stayed one night as we passed through Florence. Our room view was beautiful. The room was clean, staff friendly & morning breakfast very delicious. We liked that we could walk downtown for dinner at a variety of different restaurants. We will definitely stay again.

Our view of the parking lot was not incredibly pleasing. The rooms are hot and stuffy and there is no way to get any air. We has the pleasure in staying in the room next to the laundry.

When we have an unhappy guest, believe me we are doubly unhappy. We are investigating your comment about noise from the laundry room at night. For light sleepers we do provide a “white noise” machine next to the bed that probably would have solved your problem. More
