Could it be from being over caffeinated? On the plus side, this guesthouse is well located and my field trip today is a walk to the original stumptown coffee. Unfortunately for me, my room is sandwiched between a sitting area and the kitchen (Marquez room). I could hear every word of conversations and early birds getting breakfast woke me up before my normal waking at 7AM. Too bad because the mattress was very comfortable. The guesthouse seems very clean however there is an odor that greets you when you come in (mildew/mold)?
The kitchen is well stocked with fruit, cereals, coffee, tea, baked goods and more. I am fine with fixing my own too. A computer is available to use.
Definitely a mixed experience. I might return and stay in an upstairs room.
