Some people may call this place quaint and historical, but I just call it small and old. I think this was my worst experience out of any hotel or motel I have ever stayed in. Disclaimer: we stayed in a courtyard queen room, and I think some of their other rooms may have been larger/nicer, but I do not feel that we were given any warning for what this room would be like.
The room was ridiculously tiny. We had to squeeze sideways to fit between an end corner of the bed and the dresser. There was only room for one suitcase (thank goodness we didn't travel with a second because we would have been stepping over it). The only place to hang our clothes was pegs on the wall. Every floorboard was crooked and extremely creaky. The grout in the bathroom floor and shower was dirty and stained. The sink was at the foot of the bed. The window looked into another room 15 feet across the "courtyard" and only had blackout curtains so there was no way to let in the natural light without letting in the neighbors' gaze. After showering, we had to open the bathroom door to have enough room to dry off in the claustrophobic bathroom. We were warned that they had been having troubles with the elevator and it had been lurching - I opted for the stairs to the third floor.
My favorite part of this hotel was check-out, though I will say that the outside and lobby were very pretty and the location could not be beat.
