Located off of South Street - the B and B is located about a 20 minute walk from the historic district. We took the Lady Liberty Shuttle from the airport for a cost of $10.00 per person - in hindsight - we should have taken a taxi which would have cost only slightly more. The shuttle stopped at numerous hotels before we finally reached our destination.
We were assigned the room called Utopia - it was comfortable enough but the lighting was very poor, and the room shared a bathroom with another room which meant getting ready in the morning was a challenge. The two rooms also shared a common kitchen.
I am uncertain why this establishment calls itself a B and B - the beds were fine, the breakfast was not. I have stayed at Comfort Inns that have provided more variety. Breakfast was help yourself with bread and rolls provided on a counter in the lobby. Choice was slim and stale - fruit was or was not available. Juice, milk and water was provided in the fridge located in the shared kitchen and coffee was help yourself. During our three night stay I never did find any sugar or the homemade muffins advertsied on their website. Yougurt is also available upon request - although I don't know how you can make a request as I never saw a service person during our entire stay. Nor did I feel very welcomed.
There was an air of disrepair throughout the B and B - paint was chipped, carpets thread bare, and I did not find the Inn very inviting. The rooms looked very worn and not at all as crisp and inviting as pictured on the web site.
However, as a base, the Inn was Ok. But the location and price point overrided our disappointment.
