The first thing I noticed was the way it smelled -- great! Spur of the moment trip; lucky that we'd stayed here years ago and it is still in business. Arrived after 10 PM without reservations and was graciously welcomed. Offered the choice of three rooms it became clear that quiet was more important to us than size of room or bed, so we had an interior room with an atrium-like patio. This old building already has a lot of character, but the eclectic, tasteful, and functional furnishings make it completely pleasant. Linens, soaps, etc. all very nice for someone who appreciates the sensual. And it was very clean and tidy. Love this place! Yes, there is a bit of noise from the ventilation, but we closed our bathroom door and that solved the problem. Good for those who like small towns and character accommodations.
