I booked us into the Carriage House because of its close proximity to a college. However, I didn't realize that freight trains (yes, plural) travel at night, right through the center of the college and incredibly near the inn. This wouldn't have been so bad, except that we had to keep our windows open due to the heat. Even though I had confirmed that the Inn has a/c; it wasn't turned on! Between the endless freight trains & someone methodically rooting through all the garbage cans on the street, we got very little sleep. Our teenager's room was tiny & smelled musty. Then, breakfast...rectangles of hardened scrambled eggs & .....well, enough said. As we were leaving, a young couple also came tearing out of the place, also out of sorts (and out of sleep & breakfast).
