This decrepit 100 year old pile of bricks is somehow likable. The staff is friendly and helpful. The owners are attempting to modernize and maintain but there is so much to do. Our room was clean. They had installed expensive wallpaper over inexpertly patched plaster. The beds were very firm but tolerable. I would advise them to add memory foam mattress pads. There was one unused outlet in each room. The paint was chipped and bits of plaster drifted from an old ceiling patch. The vintage bathroom tiles had been regrouted by a novice. The only way to reduce the very cold A/C was to stand on a chair and close the vent. There was a fridge and a hotpot with plenty of instant coffee,sugar,and creamer. Nothing was actually broken, just patched. Breakfast in the restaurant was decent. We had a good time and will definitely return!
