My boyfriend and I made last minute reservations the morning we wanted to stay. I have had poor experiences with larger chain hotels so this seemed like a great choice and I reserved a king superior room for one night. When we got to the hotel around 9:30 the young man at check in said there was a problem with the room we reserved and politely apologized then showed us two other rooms for us to choose from. One was a very tiny room with a king sized bed and the other was a room with a queen sized bedroom with a separate sitting/living room in suite. We chose the queen because although it was a smaller bed (my boyfriend is 6'5") it had more space with the room size, although I was a little off put because I specifically reserved what the nice girl on the phone called a spacious room with a king sized bed. While the room wasn't what I was expecting I am glad they gave us the option to choose a room and we weren't stuck with the tiny other room. We did end up paying the same price as the king superior room, although I'm not sure what the room we got was comparable to. The bed size ended up not being a problem although I did have to squeeze myself into the far size of the room which wasn't an that much of an issue for me as I am a petite person but it was awkward. I was extremely happy with how clean the accommodations were. The bed was especially comfortable and I liked the individual air conditioners in both the living and bed rooms. We left shortly to pick up dinner to go and returned to find cookies and turn down service in our room. The only problem is there was really nowhere to store our leftovers so we were forced to leave pizza and takeout boxes out on the desk over night. I would suggest putting a small fridge and a large trash can in the rooms for future guests because there was no snacks available near the room. However, there was a small fridge outside the room in a shared sitting area stocked with San pelligrino beverages, water, and an espresso machine. We enjoyed and took advantage of these beverages to accompany our dinner. Another nice surprise was malin+goetz bath products available for us to use in the spacious bathroom which I very much enjoyed. I had to inquire about wifi at the front desk later hat night and they gave me the password as there was no information in the room, and the wifi ended up being kind of slow. While the inn was quiet and very clean I'm not sure it warranted the fairly steep price tag. The decor was stark, with weird abstract sketches to decorate, but it was comfortable for the one night stay. All the rooms were very compartmentalized in the buildings and I felt that if the place was full people would probably feel on top of each other. Oakhurst says it's a luxury boutique hotel but I think the luxury was lacking. If you're looking for a b&b with a little more privacy I would suggest it, but not if you're looking for a high class luxury stay.
