We stayed in Room 203 with two full beds - one for me and my boy and the other for our friend.
Overall the Inn is located in a great spot - in the center of town and on Bradford. It's a little more quiet than being right on Commercial but still within walking distance to everyplace. The sun decks were wonderful and we got to meet many people as we relaxed on the decks during the day. The views from each deck were excellent. The rooms were cleaned daily. For the three of us, the total stay for 5 nights was about $1000 which is a decent value. There was plenty of parking.
Upon arrival our room had 3 towels. We asked for additional towels as we had just spent most to the day in the car and wanted to shower. We would be showering again that evening before we went out and wanted another dry set. At first the hosts explained they try to conserve and the B&B septic system can't handle excessive laundry and requested we reuse our towels. It was uncomfortable to me personally. About 15 mins later we got a knock at our door and they brought fresh towels. Yes they did accommodate but a small issue was made of it. I call it an issue because I just gave a approx $1000 to now have to negotiate over towels and explain we were all sweating from the car ride?? They had made me feel like a bother. The shower itself sprayed out in a mist and took about 3 times amount of time to wash off soap. There was no adjusting it. There were P-Touch labels all over the walls in the bathroom reminding us that there is a fragile septic system at the B&B and certain restrictions on single ply toilet paper. The beds themselves were not very comfortable and had a very "old" feeling to them. Pillows were flat and when we asked for additional pillows, we were now uncomfortable due to the towel incident. On the sun decks there were two garbage cans - one for recycling and one regular. No joking -all over each was about 15 P-Touch labels with rules for throwing out specific types of trash. On the wall on our room was a framed memo of house rules. There were P-Touch labels all over the B&B. During the continental breakfast in the covered danish tray - there were about 10 P-Touch labels with rules on how to take out a danish with tongs (No Hands!) The AC in the room has P-Touch labels instructing the guest never to leave it on when they are not in the room due to electricity use??? There is also no WI-FI in the building and I felt that some renovations needed to take place as paint was peeling both in the room and outside. The place is charmgin but needs updating. My feeling is they had had some untidy guest that did a number on the place at one time. But someone needs to relax with the P-Touch Labels. If you are concerned about the quality of quest - raise your prices. I travel a bit and want to be accommodated and made to feel at home. You know - I am on vacation I do not want to be concerned about toilets, septic systems and laundry.
I am certainly not one to go out of my way to complain, just stating what had happened. I probably would not go back just because of the tackiness of the entire thing.
