There are really nothing but great things to be said about Casa Sucre, and most of them have been covered in the variety of reviews available. I agree completely with all the comments about how lovely the accommodations are, how gracious the hosts Alyce and Rich, and how perfect the location is in the fascinating Casco Viejo area. The coffee shop is equally fantastic! Excellent+ ratings on all of the above.
So here's why I almost gave Very Good and not Excellent. We happened to be in town on a holiday weekend - who know Mother's Day was a holiday? But it is, and apparently a big one. Through absolutely no fault of the owners, they are on a very busy, very noisy corner. Tenants in the building across from us played ridiculously loud music until around 2:00 a.m. Cars driving by honked at all hours and also blared very loud music. It was really hard to sleep, even with ear plugs.
I understand that it is not at all this way when it's not a holiday. So if you are a light sleeper or need a lot of quiet, you may want to ask if it's a holiday when you are planning to be there.
Otherwise, I couldn't recommend Casa Sucre more and would go back there again in a moment during a non-holiday time.
