We weren't sure about this hotel because it is NOT a chain and didn't know what to expect. The pleasant surprise was that is NOT a chain and a delightful place to stay. Yes, it is an older hotel but that was part of its charm. The friendliness and professionalism of the staff was what made our stay. We would... More

Needs work. Bare bones. Men in undershirts hanging out in room doorways smoking. Daylight coming through doorway weatherstripping. Not enough hairdryers for all rooms. Not worth the savings. We will not stay there again.

Stayed there for 1 night. Larry at the front desk is a very great guy and even helped me to find a place to print my document. He was very polite and welcoming. He provided iron and blow dryer too with no additional charge. The room was clean, quiet and organized. Thank you so much Larry :)

We've all become conditioned to think that ONLY brand named hotels are clean and nice and that anything else has to be a dive or bed knocking hourly joint. This gem of a hotel proves otherwise! To say that the service was top notch and beyond friendly would be an understatement. The rooms and public areas are spotless and as... More

The words - "We've been expecting you" are great to hear after a long ride. Staff was very friendly, rooms were very clean, including the bathroom. We were on the courtyard side which had a lovely view. This Inn has an old school charm. The breakfast lady was very kind and cheerful in the morning. We would definitely stay here... More
