This hotel is way more nostalgic than we liked. There are tiny garages next to each room, but they are so tiny that unless you are driving one of those little smart cars you will have to sleep in your car because you won't be able to open the doors. Good luck finding a parking spot out in the driveway where everyone else is also parked. The floor is so spongy and uneven we felt like we were going to go right through. The walls are so thin we could hear someone snoring in the next room, which kept us up all night. The beds were the most uncomfortable and worst ever, felt like they were over 50 years old. Only thing good about this hotel is the owners who were very nice and helpful. Would not recommend nor will we be staying here again.
