We spent New Year's Eve at the Morris House Hotel and loved it. We were in the addition next to the main house in, what I am assuming, would be called the "Extended Stay Suite." Contrary to the earlier review (unless they were in a different room), the room was quite large, with a huge and brand new bathroom, spotless hardwood floors, a small kitchen area w/coffee maker, a large sitting area and nice-sized bedroom with a fabulous quilt. Yes, the room was decorated in an Ikea style (not 50s retro), but that added to the appeal for me. It really felt as though we were staying in a city apartment. The only criticisms I would have are that our view was bad (adjoining roof and cooling system) although the room wasn't focused on the view, so no great loss. Also, we were on the third floor and, like traditional bed and breakfasts, there was no elevator, so carrying the bags was a hike. However, that is to be expected at a B&B, so no real reason to complain. Breakfast was good - homemade baked goods, cereal, juice and really good fresh fruit salad.
Overall, I would definitely return. If, however, you really want the traditional B&B experience, it would probably be advisable to request a room in the main house, or simply explain what type of accommodation you would like.
