After reading the positive reviews of Prince Solms Inn, we went expecting a well-run b and b. Unfortunately, we were disappointed.
We stayed in the Texas Room. At first glance, it was very nice, but closer inspection revealed a huge amount of dust behind the bed and under it. The exhaust fan over the stove in the kitchen was covered in heavy dust as well. Even the telephone was filthy. After cleaning things up a bit, we thought everything would be fine. Again, we were wrong.
The Texas Room is in an exterior building, an old carriage house I believe, and has no insulatation. All night we could hear the conversations of every patron leaving the piano bar whose entrance was about 30 feet from our room. Our next door neighbors came home around midnight and we could have participated in their conversation the sound carried so well from their room to ours. Only by running the airconditioner constantly (by setting the temperature as cold as it would go) could we block out the noise.
Finally, after paying $20 extra for each of our children (in a room with bunk beds and a queen bed?) we were served breakfasts on both days that were not edible unless bacon, bacon grease and sausage are the mainstays of your diet. One day we were served "pigs in blankets" and upon asking if the sausage was pork or beef were told that they were not sure. Of course they didn't know because it was obvious that they were bakery purchased. On the second day the eggs were cooked in bacon grease. If you like this...fine but if you don't look out.
For the price of the room, the extra $20 each night for each child (one age 10 one age 12) we expected better food, a cleaner room and insulation.
Great potential. Lots of charm. In need of much work.
