I have just spent 6 nights at the Shaughnessy Village Bed and Breakfast, and I admit that I liked it. Reception staff has always been very polite to me.
They have a strange checkin procedure, you may visit your room first, and thereafter you need to go back down to complete the check-in. As a guest I may expect a 'finished' room, and that all rooms are moreless equal. So why that effort?
My room was expectedly small, but featured a bathroom with a tube, a balcony, a fully furnished kitchen and a wallbed (bed and couch in one).
I don't know why people complain about the size, it's advertised as B&B, and they even state the size of the rooms. As a guest paying daily rates, you are entitled to breakfast vouchers, which can be redeemed at the 12th Avenue restaurant, which is located in the house. You may choose between different types of omlettes and one cup of coffee. It's not much, but it is good to cover the first hunger in the morning.
Shaughnessy also offers a swimming pool, a jacuzzi, a nicely decorated garden and health club, which I didn't use.
Location is basically good, but you have to walk at least three blocks to reach a bus stop (Broadway). Unfortunately there is no good supermarket available.
Considering that the Shaughnessy is a B&B, it impressed me deeply. I only paid $65, but I had all the amenties mentioned, even a bath tube in my private bathroom. That's a lot in my opinion.
