When we arrived in town for a wedding and the big hotel down the street lost our reservation, we had to scramble. Luckily we got John's last room at the Stepping Stone. Since we'd be at a rehearsal dinner one night and a reception the next it's not like we missed having a pool, movie channels or other amenities. We needed a place to sleep for the night, and that's exactly what we got.
John the innkeeper was very nice (though he did look at me strangely when I asked if we could get shampoo for the bathroom). When we arrived and said we had to be at a rehearsal dinner in an hour he got us checked in as quickly as possible and got out of our way.
All in all a very nice place for what it is. As John said, you're staying in someone's house. It's not made to be soundproof. So you might be surprised at the sign that says "no television after 11pm", but it's understandable. If you want to party, go to a hotel. If you want peace and quiet and a place to stay the night, the Stepping Stone is quite nice.
