Wonderful old fashioned charm! The owners and staff was very hospitable. Everything was very clean. The water pressure was excellent. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. I was able to walk to eat and shop. I will come again!

My husband and I stayed here because of the location. You can't beat the location. Parking can be iffy if you go on a busy weekend. We ended up having to park a block over behind a carpet store. The staff is super friendly. The breakfast is a light one, which is fine with me. Fruit, bagels, pastries, cereal. Where...

We didn't need much but we wanted charm. Hotel Nichols delivered. Super cute, well-located hotel with unique charm and friendly staff. The room was clean, spacious and air conditioned. The TV was a little dated but we hardly had it on.

The hotel has no parking, but we found space to park in the many free lots located throughout the town. I suggest parking your car for your stay, and then getting around by bicycle or by walking.

We really enjoyed staying here, the rooms were very clean and the great thing about it was it's right by everything so you don't even have to drive around. They even had a free breakfast every morning that was very fresh. I would definitely stay here again.

Unexpected unique little place! Convent to everything downtown. Being so close to the street I thought we might hear street noise, but not sound. One of my best nights sleep in a long time. Look forward to staying there again next year!
