I read the tripadvisor reviews AFTER my boyfriend had booked a room and past the cancellation deadline, so we approached our quarters with a feeling of caution. We probably would have changed our plans based on the inconsistent reviews we read. We stayed for one night on a Saturday night and spent the weekend in Old Salem and parts of Winston Salem, and were very glad to have experienced this charming Inn nestled in the historic district. We were greeted by Courtney who is a lovely outgoing young woman. We enjoyed being able to walk across the street to the tavern and to sit outside on the veranda and to stroll along the historic streets before returning to our room. Wine from the local region was served in the evening in the parlor; this was very pleasant, and there was a large turn out of talkative visitors. Our room on the second floor was charming, clean and simple; my only criticism would be the strong chemical odor from the tiny bathroom which did not dissipate. We kept the door shut and the fan running so our room would not smell and this solution was adequate. I slept comfortably but my partner is a light sleeper and he said that the people above us came in quite late and for some unknown reason were walking back and forth, back and forth, across the squeaky planks. I would say that I sleep normally, not heavily, and I did not hear any sounds to wake me in the night. I enjoyed the quietness of the historic area without traffic sounds. He said that on our next stay he would reserve a room on the top floor (and I do believe he intends to return). The breakfast was a little smorgasboard, as Courtney invited us to have all we cared to eat, and it was certainly one of the nicest B&B breakfast I have encountered. She made a mixed vegetable and egg dish that was delicious, and there were many other choices as well of nicely presented and satisfying breakfast foods. I was quite charmed by the stay at the Zeveley and do hope that the staff will keep up the standard with which we were met on our trip.
