Like staying at your Grandma's house if you had a sweet, loving Grandma who was a neat freak. I didn't, but I am a neat freak and I was impressed by how an old, quaint little hotel kept the rooms so clean. We had a room with a private shower which was nice, but I looked at the communal showers and they were very nice, cute, clean too.
The location is amazing...right on the main street to everything....4 min. walk to the park, plays, Ashland food co op..etc.
I would def stay here again next time I'm in town and not staying with friends.
The bed wasn't as firm as I would have liked but for 2 nights it was fine.
