The location is great. The fact that they have parking is a wonderful thing.
The property is historic, but it has been rennovated to have standard hotel rooms. So, it's more of a small-ish hotel than an Inn.
We had the King room - and it was quite nice. The bathroom was large. The eco lighting system was funky. Our lights went off with no warning, even though our key card was in the little slot to signal that we were home and the lights should be working. The a/c went off in the middle of the night, again - not sure what that was about, because we had the key card in the slot. Those are just really minor blips, so no big deal.
The bed was ok. Not super comfortable, but not awful.
The noise is a problem. Every single step or sound from the room above us was heard - LOUDLY - in our room. I could hear the drawers to the dresser being opened and closed above us. I was up until 1:30am - because the people upstairs were up, and walking around. It reminded me of my first apartment, with the elephants upstairs.
The staff was excellent, and felt my pain. I would probably try a different place for our next visit. For the price of the room ($220/night), I think we could still stay in town at a different Inn.
