The exterior is beautiful, the lobby is gorgeous, the hallways/staircase were well-kept, but once the door to the guest room was opened, it was another story. The room needed some serious cleaning. I can take outdated carpet and linoleum, tv, and room decorations, but the stained bathtub, dirty carpet, and bedspread was gross. I was disappointed. I am perplexed that others think the rooms were gorgeous. There were four rooms booked for a family function and all of them were unkempt. There is free, on-site parking, free wifi, a restaurant across the street, and a package store walking distance away. I should have known the rooms were not great when there are no pictures of them on the website. Also, there is no elevator or rooms on the first floor. If you are unable to do stairs, forget it. It would be nice if the owner could capture the charm of the lobby and hallways in the guest rooms.
