My husband and I recently stayed at the Taft Bridge Inn. We expected a friendly place with a visable owner or at least some one available to consult about transportation, neighborhood highlights, restaurants, even tips on what might interest first time visitors. A young woman checked us in, gave us keys and told us breakfast times, smoking rules and little else.
A daytime worker prepared breakfast to a very precise clock and even pulled a full coffee pot at exactly 8:45AM because she was also responsible for all houskeeping chores. No warm, welcoming owner. The social life was fine because many delightful guests from around the US and Europe were cast into the same situation. The breakfast rules were neither posted nor explained, so one Italian gentleman was not give breakfast on his first day because he arrived at 8:40AM, apologized for being late to the cook, but did not know he had to walk to the kitchen to order. When he asked a few minutes later he was told he had been late and he was NOT served. Our room was clean and comfortable, though not elegant; the bathroom was also clean and everything worked well. We have stayed in B&B's in the US and Europe with wonderful experiences. We will not return to this place and found most of the other guests felt the same.
