We booked this hotel based on the reviews on tripadvisor - it did not disappoint! Charming, great location, wonderful service. We arrived around 11pm and the gentleman at the front desk was friendly and helpful. We booked 2 rooms and one was slightly larger than the other but both were adorable and comfortable with little balconies facing the front of the building. Breakfast is included and is very varied - breads, fruit, waffles, eggs, cereals, coffee, OJ. WiFi is free just ask the front desk for the code.
The location is good and although it's close to I95 the noise did not bother us. The inn is about 4 blocks from the historic sites - you could be closer but then you miss out on the walk thru the charming neighborhood. Check out Shane's confectionary on Market St. It's an old-fashioned candy shop that completely transports you to a bygone era.
We would recommend this hotel and would stay here again without hesitation.
