This hotel is an old one that was remodeled in the last 5 years or so. But the remodeling did not go far enough:
1 - BR sink was not replaced and CLEARLY shows its age.
2 - Tub is new(er) but is narrow and not much good to anyone bigger than Twiggy. It is so narrow that it is difficult to stand in to take a shower.
3 - HOT water comes out of the cold faucet in the sink at night (why???) --- tub/shower is ok.
4 - ONE elevator at ONE end of the building is veeeerrrrrrry SLLLLOOOOOOOOWWWWW and VERY unreliable. I was stuck in it (w/a maintenance man) for 20 minutes!
5 - Parking is EXTREMELY limited.
6 - Parking lot entrance is on the inside of a curve and it is difficult to see traffic from either direction. Impossible to get out during heavy traffic times (Thanksgiving, peak season, fall foliage, etc.).
On the other hand, the continental breakfast is adequate - includes fresh waffles, bagels, toast, cereal, tea & coffee. But you must get there before 10. If you are a late sleeper, plan on going to the local coffee shop. Personnel were friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Local trolley stop across the street.
