I booked this room online and the pictures don't tell the real story... This inn is "quaint" in an old, needs work sort of way. Pretty run down. The rooms were pretty clean though. Smelled pretty musty and it felt a little like camping indoors. Would be great for a family who just wants a place to stay with a bunch of kids and don't need anything special. In this trip I had my mother and too older aunts and was never informed that our room was upstairs and we would have to climb two flights of outdoor rusty steps to get to the room. However, when it was pointed out to the desk clerk that this room would not be possible, she was extremely nice and worked very hard to make sure that we had a room that was appropriate even "upgrading" us to a larger room at the same price. The staff we met were all very nice and tried very hard to make our stay nice. I was just a little disappointed at the overall appearance of the place. I wouldn't say don't stay here, but if you are looking for a typical hotel room, you should probably stay somewhere else.
