You need to think a little differently to stay here. You are not looking for the chips in the paint of marks on the walls when there are historic civil war bullet holes to be found and the original paintwork is being preserved. Sure if you want that kind of 'glossed over' version of this type of stay then you can find that and pay significantly more for it, but on a budget this is a great stay amongst the faded grandeur of a once very fine home and all the history that goes with it.
As has been said in reviews before, your host is amazing and will show you round her ancestral home and I suggest you have that tour as soon as you arrive so you appreciate why the room and the house are not up to the perfect 'Hilton standards' and some areas do have a bit of a musty smell if you have a sensitive nose, but then everything in them is antique - except the bed linen which, of course, was modern.
Where this stay really scores is in the quietness of the out of town location, no annoying ice machines or elevators near your room and just the sound of the (occasional) local animals and bugs like the cicadas outside; tranquil to a tee.
Be different and give this one a go, we did and it made a good break from the usual Quality/Hilton/Holiday/Drury/Staybridge etc etc.
