You'll see recurring complaints for this hotel for a good reason. There is no hot water in the morning - but chances are good there will be hot water in the evening so plan accordingly. Breakfast is kinda lame: muffins, yogurt, cereal - but you always have the option of going out for breakfast like you would if you were staying at a road motel for about the same price. The walls are paper thin - seriously. Thin. I happen to travel with ear plugs. The bed was WAY to soft for me to be comfortable.
However, the hotel is charming in an old rustic way and perfectly located for walking around town. Free parking. The staff was friendly and our room and bathroom were clean - every thing in working order. I didn't mind mis-matched old furniture or the doilies and calico print wall paper...lends to the theme and charm of the place. Personally I'd rather stay someplace like this, with a little personality quirky as it might be, than a sterile, cloned motel room. If I could be guaranteed a firmer mattress, I'd stay again.
