Thank you for taking your time to leave us a review; reviews are very helpful in improving our business and making loyal customer, like yourself, happy. I do apologize that the pillows are too firm for your comfort. For future visits I wanted to mention to you that the 2 extra pillows that are in the bureau drawers of ever room are much softer. I am confident you will find the alternative pillows much more comfortable. We recently purchased the new pillows and bought firm and soft to try to accommodate all guests. I again apologize that the firmer pillow was to comfortable. We look forward to seeing you again.

A cute little place with very friendly staff. They were super chill when my gf and I accidentally locked ourselves out of our room too. Lesson learned, dont forget the room key! We will be coming back soon!
