The rooms were small, but clean. Very basic, no frills, but the service was great. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The wine bar off of the lobby area was nice. Very cozy little hotel.

We are glad that you had a good experience at our hotel and enjoyed our lounge, the historic Tom-Tom Tap. Please come back and stay with us again!

A couple blocks from the Amtrak station, this clean older hotel lives on exemplifying what many medium size towns once had. In addition, there is a great family restaurant adjacent to the lobby. Very competitive rates.
