I spoke to the proprietor about staying four days per week for about six weeks while working in the area. She told me she had a corporate rate of $99.00 and was very business flexible. In fact "business travel flexibility" is highlighted on their website.
This was my first B&B experience and after the first week I realized it was "just not for me" - it was a bit too intimate for business travel. Everyone was lovely and the breakfast was wonderful although not available until 7:30. I have a wheat allergy and she even cooked with wheat free ingredients for me.
The room however was the size of a postage stamp. There was no bureau to unpack my clothes (just a small wicker shelf in the closet that didn't reach my knees) no bar soap or shower gel for the shower, and, pardon me, but I had to sit on the toilet sideways because it was so close to the wall.
I stayed the first week and then upon checking out cancelled the remaining ones. I offered to surrender my deposit for the following week. I was informed by the proprietor that she went to extra efforts to research and buy wheat free ingredients for me and spent over $75.00 in ingredients. ( Her website however says that they cater to dietary needs). I offered to surrender the $75.00 she spent plus my next week's deposit of $25.00.
She told me that her deposits were non-refundable and that she would keep my full $250.00 deposit. She also did not honor her quoted rate of $99.00 per night but charged me her full rate.
If I were spending the weekend and in a larger room, this would be a nice place to stay (although I never would now) but it is not for the business traveler. The proprietor is not flexible and she will keep your money!!!
Shame on her.
