If you like older restored hotels instead of the chain hotels this is the place for you! This hotel was charming, full of antiques, and had many extra amenities that you would not expect. For example, they will bring your complementary breakfast to your room at whatever time you ask, and they were even some relaxing CDs in the room to play in the CD player/alarm clock.
They have a hot beverage station that is open all the time, and there are warm cookies every afternoon.
The hotel is located on the main street, and practically in the parking lot of the train depot, which we loved. We stayed two nights and never needed the use of our car because it's close to everything!
I would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again.
Tip: Some of the rooms do not have a window. Be sure to ask for a window room.
