A family member was getting married here so we decided to stay rather than drive home. We ended up in the Safari Suite at a cost of $290. Generally, everything about the place was okay but certainly not worth the price or the reputation. Little things that we expect for this price just weren't there. For instance there were two small thin pillows on the bed. That's one of those things we just expect from a B&B, a pile of big pillows on the bed. Our room appeared to not have been updated in the 20 years the place has been open. The carpet had stains all over it and the bathroom showed its age. One particularly annoying thing was the lack of climate control. The fireplace was nice but after 10 minutes the room was too hot even with windows open. The food wasn't any more impressive than the room. Our continental breakfast tray was a carafe of coffee, two thin orange slices, one blackberry, one raspberry and two dry muffins that literally each had two blueberries in them. I told my wife I felt like I was on one of those reality shows where the guy comes into an old, outdated inn and fixes it up. 20 years ago it was probably a great place.
