This place has so much potential, but unfortunately does not live up to any of it. It's very cute from the outside, and looks like a neat old hotel. Unfortunately, it's just an old hotel. Our room smelled of smoke. There were cigarette burns in the comforters and blankets. We even found a cigarette butt by the iron. The bathroom... More

This hotel is terrible, and they charged $120.00 last week. The hotel is old, and not charming. The rooms were in really bad shape, and the continental breakfast was awful, they did not even have real cream for your coffee.

We booked this room in advance because of the location and the king bed. The reviews that I read had me very skeptical. Even after arriving I was skeptical because there weren't a lot of people staying there except for in the hotel part across the parking lot. When we arrived in our room on the 2nd floor we were...

There are much better options. You would be advised to take them. Rooms are dirty, staff is uninterested. Looks like it hasn't been updated in decades. This place could be wonderful, but it needs someone who cares, and unfortunately it is clear that no one has cared about this place in a long time.

Avoid at all cost!! The innkeeper and most of the staff were very rude. The hotel in general, the room, the furniture, everything was old, dirty and ugly. The fitness center was in the basement and it was creepy. The hotel swimming pool and Jacuzzi were out of order. The breakfast was very disappointing, no fruit, In all it was... More

Spur of the moment led us to Hollow Inn. A room check showed us large rooms with small refrigerator, microwave and iron and a balcony. It was once an upscale property. It needs some tlc but, for the price, it was very nice. The owner was very helpful with local attractions and suggested Sarducci's which is one of the best... More

Don't stay here!!! The innkeeper was rude. There was an extra charge for a third person in the room even though we still only needed two beds. The "extensive breakfast" the advertise was hard bagels and a waffle maker. Milk and juice at breakfast had been sitting out way too long. No fruit, no proteins. The "fitness center" was a... More
