When first arriving you'll see a picturesque New England bed-and-breakfast looking hotel, but looks can be deceiving. I traveled here with my wife and two small children (4 and 2) believing this was an appropriate place for children...based on reading previous reviews. The looks I received from other guests upon them seeing my children made it apparent that my kids were unwelcome here...and my kids were just walking quietly by my side! This hotel dates back to the 1800's which is apparent in that the floors creak with every step you take and that the wallpaper and paint are peeling off the walls. When walking in the halls or while in your room you can hear every conversation people are having...as well as every step they make in the room above you.
There is absolutely no way to open and close your hotel room door quietly and when in your room you can clearly hear when other guests open and close theirs if they are anywhere in the same hall.
ANY movement you make in the bed causes them to creak horribly. Simply put there is NO privacy.
We had the unfortunate luck to have another couple placed in the room right next to ours with an inconsolable toddler who was crying and screaming. To their credit they were trying everything possible to console their child (we could hear their attempts at talking and singing) but the walls are so thin they may as well have been in the room with us. When we informed the front desk they offered to move us to another room down that same hall (where we could still hear the muffled crying child) but that gave us no apology or really seemed to care.
The window-mounted air-conditioner sounded like a loud, rattling jet engine so we couldn't use that so we were forced to open the windows to keep cool.
Lastly this hotel was only about $120/night but the haughty attitudes of the other guests would lead you to believe you were staying at the Ritz in New York City. For $120/night I expect to at minimum, have basic privacy and not be subjected to any noises made by other guests...much less a complete lack of privacy.
