The hotel environment was as I expected, period decor with limited amenities, but it was clean and comfortable. The town was quaint with a few restaurants/bakeries within walking distance, although no coffee shops were open on Sunday morning. Parking was located behind the hotel, but the lot was full when we arrived. After going back into the hotel for options two times, we were directed to another lot nearby. My main complaint is that when we checked in, the hotel had no reservations for us from Expedia.com. Peggy, the manager, was called, and after much time spent waiting for her to locate a room for us, she booked us into a larger suite, for a much negotiated price that was still $20 more than our guaranteed rate with Expedia. She made it seem like she was doing us a huge favor, and that it was no fault of the hotel's that our reservation was lost. Peggy did make our dinner reservations (Elixir-excellent dining) for us after we checked in, but I still have a sour taste in my mouth from the check-in process. Peggy, "the customer is always right" is an important lesson to those who work in customer service and the hotel industry.
