The room required 13 steps to reach and the stairway had flower petals all over it making it very slippery. The room is not senior friendly and is dangerous for any senior. Travelocity did not process are need for a handicapped senior friendly room and I would give Travelocity a failing grade

No mention of construction on grounds. Breakfast was in another shop not at the hotel. Bravo bar was closed even though web site said it was open

Thank you for taking the time to share you recent experience at our property. We are disappointed to hear your stay was less than satisfactory. Bravo Bravo is a independently owned and operated restaurant that has no affiliation with the hotel. Unfortunately, as such, we have no control over how often they update their business hours of operation. We have our current construction listed on Expedia's website to advise those booking at our property. Being a historic Inn built in the 1800's, it is extremely important that we work to restore it's natural structure and provide the proper TLC it needs to be maintained and cared for. During the duration of our renovation, we have partnered with a renowned neighboring cafe that we are confident will provide exceptional breakfast options to all guests. Thank you for understanding and taking the time to share your feedback with us.

Great hotel, with friendly and helpful staff. The room was comfortable and clean and the hotel is in great location to walk to the stores and restaurants. Would love to go back.

Loved this hotel. Got a great deal last minute (which could be b/c it was off days - Tuesday into Wednesday). Decor of the lobby and rooms was great. Everything was very clean; my room was immaculate. Felt like I was staying in a friends home as opposed to a hotel. Fantastic location. Would absolutely stay here again.
