The inn is right downtown and is less than a block from the free Nightfall (Friday night) summer concert series. The room was nicely furnished and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was plentiful and excellent. We would definitely stay again, and recommend getting a room with a balcony because the hot tub was fantastic.

We stayed here for our anniversary week-end. Our room was on the third floor (top floor) and was super quiet even though they had a full house for at least our first night there. The room had a fireplace and outside tub - neither of which we used on this trip. Bed was very comfortable and bathroom nice and big.

Being a BnB they do offer a full breakfast in the morning. The breakfast consists of eggs cooked to order - but don't expect a full on omelet - more like scrambled or over easy. They also have biscuits and gravy, pancakes, bacon, potatoes, etc. My only comment would be that it would be nice if they included more healthy choices - it was definitely carb heavy.

They have a nice bar and restaurant attached to the hotel. Service was excellent from the front desk to the bar and restaurant.

Oh, and location is awesome for all tourist attractions. We walked everywhere but if you don't feel like walking there is a free shuttle running one block from the hotel.

We would definitely return.

Room Tip: Top floor - we had room 35 and I would recommend.

This is a lovely hotel, very old style and nicely furnished.

The staff were very friendly.

The room was huge and had the most amazing bathroom! Very clean as well.

It was about a 15 minute walk to the main downtown area and was conveniently located.

Breakfast - I arrived with 10 minutes to spare so not much left but I had a nice biscuit :)

My husband and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon tour of the U.S and had the best time. The room was spacious and bed comfy. Breakfast was nice, although the first morning we went down with half hour left of breakfast service and there wasn't much food left. We made sure we got up a bit earlier the next morning!

Started out in Room 36 for one night. Very unique with exposed brick walls and antiques and whirlpool tub. Bed was super soft but we rolled to the middle. Asked to move to another room and was given Room 38. The bed was better and room was different with most of room on a carpeted raised platform. Slight problem was that the faucets in shower & whirlpool were all stripped. Difficult to turm on & off. The new owners refurbished about 1/2 of the room when they bought it. Evidently these were not done.Staff were wonderful and Terra Mae (restaurant) was very good and had excellent pastries. Breakfast was included. Slight confusion in that a flyer given at front desk for parking codes stated that on Sunday you could order from the Sunday Brunch menu for your free breakfast. But we were told, along a couple of other guests that you could not order from the Sunday Brunch as an included item. They need to change their flyer. We will go back.

Room Tip: Ask if the room has been recently updated. Higher up is better as lots of street noise and sirens...

I always love the feel of a B&B much more than a commercial hotek!, and this place did not disappoint! The staff were very friendly, the prices were competitive, and the building was overflowing with character. The rooms were unique but cozy. The breakfast was amazing and much more gourmet than you will find at most hotels. I would highly recommend this place!

We loved our stay here. Great place. Lots of charm and character. Staff so helpful and friendly.
Don't be put off by reviews that this place is noisy. It's in the city but on a quiet side street. You get the typical urban road hum and occasional siren. You want absolute silence, go stay in chain in a suburb.
The room was large, Jacuzzi out on the balcony with a privacy screen. Robes in the armoir. Pellegrino water complementary. Great breakfast with fresh juice and good coffee.
We would definitely be back. Only complaint is the pillows were old, flat, lifeless.
