Staying at the Farrington was the most fun experience I've had at a hotel in a long time! Each night, I wondered wether I would wake up the next morning or not. Upon entering the Farrington Inn, I was a little alarmed to find that Norman Bates was not only alive, but was still managing small inns to the general public. My party and I should have taken this as a sign of what else to expect, but we were on a budget, and it was the only place left with five beds available. After passing through the quaint furnishings- a stuffed dear head with a silk scarf concealing a "hidden" camera, and a creeky organ shoved in the corner of a stairwell- I realized I would not be enjoying a peaceful night's sleep during my stay here. The attic my party and I slept in (which only had four beds) definately had a lived in feel. In fact, I doubt the previous guests had ever left at all. The mattresses still had body forms indented in them, and the sheets did not look like they had been changed in months. The entire third floor smelled of cigarette smoke and death, the floors creeked endlessly throughout the night. If you ever find yourself deciding between hotels, go with the alternate choice, you'll thank me for it.
