Lovely hotel with character! We shared a room with another couple for one night. We did not have bathrobes or coffee cups for 4 people and within minutes of our call to the front desk, 3 employees showed up with all we needed and more. Great breakfast also available.

Hotel's Favorite
Really enjoyed the ambiance of this inn - our first time there. Had a large room with tremendous character. An excellent inn where you can enjoy a drink in many different rooms. Good breakfast, and a varied lunch/dinner menu. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful

My husband and I have stayed here many times. We love its convenient location to downtown and their free parking. The room was very clean and nicely furnished. The view from our room could have been nicer, as we had a boring view of the parking at the back of the inn.
