When on vacation, I always try to stay in unique hotels. This is not always easy on a budget for a family of four (my kids are now teens). The Plains Inn is like most small bed and breakfast hotels with only one bed per room, but it was so inexpensive I jumped at the chance to stay there. Wow! The rooms were huge, with a sitting area in every one. Each room was bigger than most suites. The wood plank floors, the brick outside walls, the antique furniture and the period decorations made the whole stay unique. With each room decorated by decade, we stayed in the 1930 (one big bed for us) and 1940 (twin beds for the kids) rooms. The claw-foot tub was huge, but stepping in was a little hard. The host warned us in advance which rooms were appropriate for which age group. My parents stayed in the 1950 room, as that room has a regular tub with shower for people who cannot step as high as they used to. I would stay again just for the feeling of small town warmth.
