Charming, charming reno of an old 1902 inn. But it is on second floor with many many stairs up a winding staircase, and no elevator was installed during the reno. Apparently the lower level was rented out to a store, and the owner of the building hadn't thought about the need to have an elevator until too late to plan the space! Sue, the manager, was very helpful and solicitous, and helped to carry our suitcases up when my husband had chest pains so couldn't carry.
Our room was small but efficient, and the bathroom was clean and new. There was only one chair but we carried another in from the hall so we squeezed in two and had our "happy hour".
Our little Westie puppy was welcome in the large second floor hallway where many antiques are displayed, and the staff and guests made a fuss over her. But it was a long way downstairs to take her out.
They serve a good breakfast ( if cold because it is set out at 6 a.m. for the oil workers who have to go to work) with interesting local jams, yogurt, fruit, oatmeal, paninis, and coffee. I should tell you that there are long stay guests at the hotel who work at the oil refinery just down the street, and the smell of oil premeates the town.
The hotel charges upscale rates since they consider it to be a heritage B&B. But with the lack of elevator and so many stairs, it seemed overpriced to us.
