Needs Renovating

Pros: Quiet
Cons: No free Internet
The room was very clean, however it was run down and grossly outdated. The bathtub was pink and white where they had refinished a pink tub and the finish had come off of about 1/3 of it. There were minimum electrical outlets, one of which did not work. The furnishings were old and badly scratched up. It was obvious that the wall in the bathroom had been patched. We were very grateful that at least it was clean. It had a lovely patio and garden with a fire pit. A very nice outdoor ambiance. The office staff was unavailable when we arrived at about 5pm, as well as when we left at 9am. We had to wait about 15 minutes for them to return so we could check in. A phone call to the office also went unanswered. We could not connect to the internet from our room, even though we had been given their Wi-Fi password.

Comfortable beds

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
This was a very small, but quaint hotel with great management. They were very helpful, and extremely useful for restaurant advice. The rooms were small but clean, and the beds were extremely comfortable! The bathrooms needed updating, but overall for the price, you can't beat it.
