... and not only a great value, but a very nice slice of history! I wasn't expecting much when I reserved a room at this hotel. I called in a reservation late in the day, on a Wednesday evening, and was quoted $89. I didn't get to the hotel until 10pm, and talked to a kind older woman at the front desk. In speaking quietly with a traveling companion, I said that I wasn't expecting anything impressive, given the fact that they had rooms available on such short notice and were so reasonably priced. We finished check-in, and proceded to the rooms. I opened the door, and it felt like coming home. The small single bed room was mostly filled by the queen sized bed, but but everything was clean, and the bedding was in very good repair. The furniture, blinds, and carpeting all matched and were in no way garish. The furnishings, though inexpensive, were well maintained. Toilet, shower, and sink were in good repair. And the overall feeling of the room was one of coziness, of warmth. I returned to the office after unpacking to inquire about wireless access, and in giving me the code for their WiFi, the woman behind the counter gave me a bit of the history of the hotel (of which I was completely unaware... I booked here just out of convenience and desperation). I then told her how much I liked the room, and she informed me that she was the owner, and her husband was doing all the restoration work in the rooms. I thanked her for her courtesy and her husband for his handiwork, and proceded to enjoy my stay greatly.
