After reading mixed reviews for this hotel, we decided to check it out for ourselves. Yes, there is a musty oder which we quickly got use to, the room was clean and neat and we were given plenty of towels and the bed was comfortable. There was hot water and good water pressure. We liked staying close to downtown and walking distance to great shops and restaurants. We loved Sunday's Open Market at Evans park which is walking distance from the hotel and went to the park several times. The grounds are well maintained and lend to the relaxed atmosphere. The docks were great place for sunset, fishing and just relaxing.
We stayed in the Gables, recently renovated. Our little air conditioning unit couldn't handle the Florida heat and our room was always warm and on the last night it vibrated. Also, in room 1723 the TV had issues which we reported when we checked out. We knew there was no refrigerator and no coffee maker so we came prepared.
We feel if we had come when it wasn't so hot, that it would have been a much better experience. We know it isn't a corporate hotel, but a vintage and historic one with a laid back, old world feeling.
