What an extraordinary island of comfort and style in some very ordinary surroundings! The rooms are huge and well appointed, decorated with a homey eclectic touch. The stairways leading up to the rooms are about as wide as a commercial planes middle aisle. I felt very guilty watching the staff wrestle my wifes single suitcase (about the size of a VW Bug) up one flight from the parking lot and then two flights to our room. I handled my own bag (no bigger than a motorcycle) and my breathing returned to normal within a half hour.
The staff couldn't have been more helpful and their suggestion that we dine at "J's Oyster House" where we had the longest wait for a table (1 1/2 hr) and the BEST meal we had on our three week trip.. Hint: Go to J's very early or very late)
The complimentary breakfast at the Inn was given in an area about 25 ft long and 5 feet wide that encouraged intimacy not only between members of the same party but with a lot of strangers too. I would make a serious suggestion that the Inn get three or four small folding table and chair sets and set them up in the reception area. Your guests would appreciate it.
Our stay here was great and my only regret was that we didn't have an extra day. We left in the morning regretfully and we were fifty miles away before I realized I had both of the room keys in my pocket. We dropped them in the first mailbox we came to and now publically apologize for the oversight.
Thanks for a memorable stay fellas. We hope to see you again.
