First of all this is a hotel spread over multiple buildings, not a B&B. We stayed there twice during a recent vacation and got two different rooms.
The first room had the worst bed ever. The mattress sagged severely and the frame squeaked loudly. I woke up with a sore back. The bed was clearly past its serviceable life and should have been replaced. It was easy to see where they went short on building maintenance. Road noise and light leaked in at night making it hard to sleep. The A/C did not work well and was noisy.
The second room was better. It had the second worst bed ever. The mattress was better but the springs/frame made more noise. Very disappointing. The nightlight didn't work and the bathroom heater made bad smells when used. Again, more maintenance that wasn't done. The A/C worked but was very noisy. Lots of light leaking in but we were in the back of the building so there was less noise.
I could not recommend this to anybody. We have stayed at many better places in the same price range. It is an all-around poor value.
