As we strolled past the Columbia Hotel, it looked interesting but we thought it would be too expensive since it was right on the main street in such a great location. There was a large flight of stairs to get to the hotel too so we moved on. Once at our car, I called them mostly out of interest. We were so pleased we did. The price was right, the hotel charming, the rooms large, bright, spacious. Love the older historic hotels. We enjoyed a glass of wine in the living room there (brought it with us). The room was quiet, the bed comfortable. Would absolutely recommend it. We took a room with a shared bath and each room has a sink in them. Using the hall bath was convenient.
