The recent reviews with top ratings must have come from people who stayed at a different hotel... First, the good things - the location is wonderful, right in the old town area and a block from one of the town squares. The entrance is charming, in an old-fashioned way. The pool in the central courtyard is tiled, and pretty, however, the ceramic owl sitting on the edge did little to keep the pigeons away from the pool - I should have taken a picture of the row of pigeons sitting next to the owl, but you get the idea. I didn't mind the eclectic artwork, or the lack of elevator. I expected old fashioned, and even funky. What we got was disheveled, dirty, and a building in need of major repair, upgrade, and renovation. The carpet in the hall and our room was worn, torn, dirty, and loose. Towels my husband called 12-thread count, a toilet he named Tommy the Talking Toilet due to the noise it made when flushed that went on for about 90 seconds. An extension cord extended down from the suspended ceiling to plug in a light fixture. A towel bar made of PVC pipe with the printing on it. Bug powder lying in the corners of the room - which at least meant no bugs. Plastic covered, uncomfortable mattress. And the noise - not really a fault of the condition of hotel itself, but a result of old fashioned panel-crank-type windows and thin walls - loud cars with louder stereos driving by until well after midnight on Friday night, garbage trucks starting about 6 a.m., many roosters crowing all night as roosters do, inharmonic church bells starting about 6:30. We were told there was a continental breakfast but when we came downstairs about 8 a.m., there was nothing to be seen, and the front desk clerk was on the phone. We really did want to like this place. There's a new resident manager who introduced herself and really wants to make it better - but sadly, I think without a significant infusion of cash there isn't a lot anyone can do.
