Know what? You'll never beat this place. The rooms are really nice, and breakfast is good and homemade (Dennis, the host, is a former cook). Dennis is congenial beyond belief, well organized, and he did all the fixing up on his place. You can't beat the price, and Dennis is trying to make a real business out of his home. Go there (if you can get in -- might be tough because he has many repeat customers).
Anything negative? Not really, just that the neighborhood is uninspiring. But everything else is so wonderful that it doesn't matter.
