The property is extremely old with zero updates from the day it was built. It is in an amazing location which is the only thing going for it. The property is quaint and charming but the comforters haven’t been replaced in 20 years, the bathroom was rusted and water barely came out of the shower. All of this is bearable given the fact that it is right there in the middle of everything, however it was extremely difficult to lock our door and stopped us from leaving the room for several hours. Reception had already closed so we couldn’t get a hold of anyone to show us the tricks to the old door lock. It was disappointing considering we were only there for one night. If they could just update the security for the door locks, redo the bathrooms and change out the bedding it would be amazing!!

3rd time here. OK for 1 night and Travelocity rate. Will never pay over $90 nor stay more than 1 night.No microwaves or coffeemaker in the rooms, so why the refrigerators? Decor is definitely shabby. Furniture old, dated. Needs at least new paint flooring new furniture, repairs (how hard is it to replace a towel rack that was missing)? No maintenance person? Breakfast room is nice, breakfast not so much. And so many things plugged into various outlets, power strip (fire hazards) such as lamps, click radio, TV's, fan, space heater). On plus side, my beds have been comfortable, linens clean. Area is quiet.
