Although we had our doubts when the lady meeting us at the entrance knew nothing about the area or how to get to the Times Union Center; and when we asked when breakfast is served, and her answer was "whenever you want - it's all here already", we were still willing to give the place a chance. The breakfast area was stark, furnished in chrome, diner-like furniture, and all the items were already in place the night before for the guests to warm up. But, we figured ours was a short stay to see a concert at the Times Union Center. However, when we went upstairs to our room, a large, dark colored mouse ran across the floor. When I pointed out the problem to the lady (we later found out she was the innkeeper's mother), her only response was, "Well it is an old house". We requested a refund and left immediately. She did comply with our request. But compared to other B & B experiences, this was horrible.
