Before you read the whole review I want you all to know that this is not the Ritz. You can see from the website that this is more of a quaint and historic motel type setting, so nobody should be complaining about it not being 5 star. That being said, my parents and I have come here for 15 years now and its great each time! Each room is different but spacious (get the Johnson, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Clinton, Nixon or any of the cottage rooms). They are the same price as the others, so it's easy to make the choice! Some of them have king sized beds and could be the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on. Breakfast is included (more on that later though) and the ambiance is wonderful. This hotel is great for people who really want a historic hotel, and not a modern hotel with plasma tv's. Although the tvs work great! They even let our little Yorkshire Terrier stay with us for $20, which is the only hotel in the area that would allow him. Dont worry, hes potty trained!
The only reason I wouldnt give this hotel a 5 is because of the breakfast situation on the weekends. Instead of the WONDERFUL continental breakfast you get in the lobby during the week, they give you a voucher to eat a few things at the buffet restaraunt next door. You can either have the limited sleection, (juice, coffee, toast, cereal, etc) or $1 off the price of the whole buffet, which is very pricey. $1 off?? Come on.....We always opt for the limited selection, but every time, the waiters have NO idea what we are talking about. And we show them the voucher as well! It's like they have never even talked to the hotel before that is right next door. Very strange. that this has been going on for so long and not once has a waiter ever understood the voucher!
However, if you eat at the hotel during the week, the lobby breakfast is amazing! Homemade breads, cereal, juice, coffee, pastries, etc.
We will be back!
