My wife and I arrived on a motorcycle and were pleasantly surprised to learn they had several small locked garages just for motorcycles. It was so nice to just lock the garage and not have to worry about the bike. The staff was very friendly and the innkeeper is a blast. It is only about a block up from the main attractions of the historical district so we could just park the bike for the night and walk to restaurants, bars, or just store gazing in the evening. They also have outdoor lounges, we bought a bottle of wine and just sat outside and talked one evening. It was much better than any of the hotels upon the highway and the cost was not really different. I have no clue why anybody visiting here would stay at a hotel on the highway, rather than someplace like this u less they just prefer the McDonalds atmosphere of the highway.
