After all these years, I still cannot say enough good things about this hotel. I won't repeat here, but I will add some comments. It is STILL the same people serving up the same quality work in all aspects with even more improvements. There's a lot to be said when there is no employee turnover from housekeeping to management. Mattresses and extra pillows in the closet are encased in bedbug-free casing. There were fresh flowers on every table in the breakfast room - what a great touch! Free Wi-Fi even. I do want to add that I found two new restaurants that might interest repeat travelers or those staying more than one night that are not partial to chain restaurants. Haystacks is 2 minutes on the same street and is good family fare at very reasonable prices especially good for breakfast and lunch. For dinner, an unexpected find on Main Street (very close and easy to get to and also reasonable) is an Asian joint called Akeno Sushi - incredibly fresh.
