“Would Rather Have Stayed Home”
Reviewed January 16, 2005

The Zaballa House, is not only a house but a motel-style addition to one side above some shops with essentially generic Motel 6-like decor and paper-thin walls. We could easily hear the folks next door talking in normal voices and the TV. Our room overlooked a parking lot. We were gravely disappointed.

The lobby in the house, where one might normally congregate with other guests to get some semblance of the B & B experience is tiny and uncomfortable and the wine and cheese reception leaves a lot to be desired, a warm $5 bottle of Chardonnay, some slices of cheddar made us feel like they could have tried a little harder. We didn't expect the Ritz, but for the money and the description, we expected more than just a roof over our heads.

I loved the cozy rooms and hot tub!!!!!!!! I've stayed at the Zaballa House a few times a year and never had any problems with service. I enjoyed the complementary wine and cheese as well as the spacious rooms. I also enjoyed the conveinence for the Pumkin Festival. I highly recommend the Zaballa House to everyone!!!!!!
