I stayed at Troy-Bumpas Inn over Labor Day weekend. I'm very picky about where I stay. I usually only stay in 4 or 5 star hotels. Greensboro doesn't have any high end hotels so I decided to try a bed and breakfast. After reading reviews on trip advisor, Troy-Bumpas looked to be the best. I arrived around 7:30 pm and was greeted promptly at the door. The owners had the weekend off, but the person they hired to take over for the weekend was wonderful. She gave us a quick tour and took us to our room. We stayed in the Allah. The room was nicely decorated and had a deck to sit outside. The bathroom was very nice with granite and a jetted tub and spacious shower. The room was immaculate. There wasn't a stray hair or piece of dust anywhere. The bed was very comfortable and had the softest sheets. When I first got to the room, I was bit concerned because it didn't have its own thermostat. However, I was told if I was too hot or cold, to let them know and the temp. would be adjusted. The room temperature was perfect the entire stay. We went down for breakfast the first morning we were there. Breakfast was French toast, sausage, blueberry bread and fresh strawberries. The coffee was excellent. Overall, the breakfast was OK. We had to leave early on Monday before breakfast was served but the inn arranged for a nice continental breakfast before we left. Regarding the location of the inn, it was only a couple of miles from shopping and restaurants such as PF Changs, Mimi's, Fleming's. On our second evening, we went to the grocery store and bought a bottle of wine and some snacks and sat on our deck and enjoyed the great weather. The house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood. For the price, I thought it was an excellent choice. Our room was $159 the first night and $125 the second. With breakfast included, I thought this was an extremely reasonable rate. If I ever travel back to Greensboro, this is the only place I would consider staying.
