The wife and I have stayed in other bed and breakfast's in the past and we were impressed with the history of the Old Castillo house, the cleanliness, and how the owner did not hover or micro-manage our stay. The room and bed was quite comfortable and served our needs nicely. The breakfast was good although a bit less in... More

What a great b&b! The staff is so courteous and polite! You feel welcomed, almost like visiting a relative! It is a beautiful place, peaceful yet in the middle of town. Very captivating. The rooms were clean and spacious, with authentic antique furniture. Breakfast was delicious! The peanut butter fudge and homemade soap is THE BEST! I look forward to... More

Thank you for your great review. Your suggestion about fruit is a good one. We will begin to offer a few at breakfast. Only a few requests are made for this, but, it is an easy fix.

We had a very peaceful and relaxing stay. Breakfasts were among the very best we've ever had at B&B's. The town and neighborhood is very quiet and low key. The only thing noisy in the Old Castillo are the old wood floors and stairs. Our room was enormous, bed comfortable, Wi-Fi quite reasonable.

Our stay was a bit on the crazy side, things uncontrollable by the owner. First, the water had to be shut off, so we couldn't use the bathroom, and thought we might have to move to another lodging. It was fixed, but the water stayed discolored until after breakfast the next day. Not something that could be helped, we understand.... More
