Because of what I had seen on "In Wine Country" and gleened from their web site, I did not look into tripAdvisor before booking our stay. I probably would not have booked our stay as many of the comments written were similar to what we had experienced. The garden and outside area are beautiful, Suzanne (the Inn Keeper) was delightful, the breakfast was hearty, but.....the rooms definitely need updating: hot and cold water were switched in the sink and shower; no hairdrier provided; towels, linens and bed coverings definitely needed to be updated; 17" TV...pretty small. I would suggest that the owners of the Purple Orchid take a trip to the Napa or Sonoma Wine Country to see what a "real" wine country experience should include. We were glad that we had chosen a room that was only $150 a night. I can only imagine our dismay if we had stayed in one that was $210. We did peek in on a few other rooms which were similar in decor to ours. Oh, and no air conditioning. We were glad it was only May. A ceiling fan would have been nice.
