Bed: The mattress was very uncomfortable. I slept better the following night, when we were camping in a tent.
Noise: Our room, 26, was on the front of the first level of the house. Lots of street noise, and you hear everyone coming in and out of the front door. The AC wasn't on and we were given a fan, which only made a difference if we opened the window, further adding to the noise.
Room: It felt like someone took a motel room and mashed it into a 19th-century living room. The high ceiling, chandelier, and fireplace were lovely. The original entryway into the foyer and dining room had been boarded up to create the back wall and door of the room. I'm used to these spaces being left intact to be used by guests. Other than the bed, the furniture was very modern. The bathroom had automatic dispensers for shampoo and toilet paper that were the same sort used in gas stations or fast food places. We stayed in another place with dispensers, but they used a residential-style brand.
There was a no-smoking sign, but the room smelled smoky/musty to me. We immediately opened the windows, but only one would stay open.
Breakfast: Juice, coffee, loaf bread, croissant, fruit. We weren't expecting a full meal, but this was the most limited continental breakfast I've come across, and after a bite of the croissant we left and found a pastry shop on our own.
Parking: $16/night, and not on premises.
Bottom line, I saw other places online in the same price range, and I wish we'd stayed in one of them. The location is great, but the website and price led us to expect more. I don't understand why the owner's didn't build on the charm of the houses they chose to put their hotel in.
