Purchased a Living Social deal for a 2 night stay. Had the choice of the St Johns room or the Roosevelt and due to timing and availability we ended up in the St Johns. It was clean and the bed/pillows were comfortable. However, there were several things that needed to be fixed or updated. The floor creaked loudly everywhere in the room and if one of us got up to use the bathroom at night, it woke the other one up. The caulking in the shower/tub was moldy and the curtain that covered the window in the shower had caulking and/or paint all over it (easy fix, just do it!). The closet door wouldn't latch and there was a large gap around the main door to the hallway which allowed a lot of light to come through at night. The a/c-fan-heater unit was in the wall near the ceiling and it rattled terribly so we had to keep it turned off. The wi-fi signal was very weak and only worked about 10% of the time. The walls and ceiling need to be fixed/painted as they look like there was water damage.
We looked at the Roosevelt before guests checked in and it looked like it was in better shape than the St Johns. I think we may have had the worst room in the house as so many of the reviews rate this place as excellent.
Good Stuff: Breakfast was decent and there is a nice bar that works on the honor system. The owners/staff are very nice. The location of the Inn is great.
Overall, our experience was okay but we know we will not return. We would have been disappointed if we had paid full price.
