The great thing about the Tranquil Inn is that it is right in town so you can walk to everything, even the Festival Park across the creek. We stayed in a second floor king room and it was spacious and clean. There is a wonderful porch on the second floor facing the water and marina where you can sit and relax or, weather permitting, enjoy your breakfast or the wine and cheese reception in the afternoon. They call the breakfast "continental" but there were hot sausage biscuits, fresh bagels and pastries, and freshly cut fruit in addition to the typical continental fare. And the 1587 Restaurant on the first floor is truly a top-notch place to enjoy a meal. The only reason I didn't give them five stars is that when we checked in they did not have any information to give us as to when/where breakfast was or even that there was free Wi-Fi or a wine reception. The young lady that checked us in seemed a bit put out that we were there and I had to keep asking questions until I think I got all the information. Otherwise our stay there was very nice and the other two people we encountered at the front desk, along with the very nice woman who took care of the excellent breakfast, were all very helpful.
