This B&B is in a great location and close to all things downtown. That's about the only plus. We were able to check in early, so that was helpful as we had no car and didn't want to carry our bags around the city. The inn and the room are fairly dated. I'm pretty sure you can still have updated rooms and maintain the old charm, but that has not been done here. We stayed in the Sweet Bay room and it was fairly clean, the large bed was comfortable, the twin bed was not. This particular room is right beside the stairs so you can hear people talking clearly as they walk by, and I have to assume they can hear everything in the room as well. There was a slight musty smell in the room, but it wasn't so bad that it made us uncomfortable, but someone who is more sensitive to that kind of thing might want to look elsewhere. I would consider staying here again, but only if the price for a night's stay was $75.
