The room is very small but has a separate bedroom and living room. It is well described in the Worldmark book but it was still a surprise. The staff were friendly and VERY helpful in finding places to see and how to get there. Take the tour of the Camlin from the manager for a bit of fun. Check out... More

We stay here often as it is easy to walk downtown for shopping or catching the sights. It is also easy to catch the bus to other areas. The staff is attentive and very helpful. If you walk to a dinner, take a cab back. Security is excellent.

I really enjoyed staying at the Camlin. It still had the old world charm and they have taken some of the features and added it to the rooms. I took the hotel tour which is only on Tuesday mornings to learn and see some of the places in the hotel that are not usually open to tourists. It is easy... More

It’s so easy to get anywhere from here. I walked all around and nothing I went to was more than 1 – 1 ½ miles away. The staff are extremely friendly and the room was very comfortable.

The Camlin is a great place to stay as long as you truly understand what an older historic building hotel will give you. If you're looking for a large resort style room you're simply going to disappoint yourself. The Camlin has rooms that are functional with decent furnishings that have to work around the architecture of the building. The wonderful... More

Upon check-in, I explained to the front desk that I had a specific room preference need and Tesh, the representative who checked me in, was kind enough to change my originally-assigned room to another...
