Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I liked how quaint and inviting it was. However i was somewhat disappointed in the continental breakfast that was available or offered. Perhaps I was expecting to much. But overall the stay was good

This is an old Inn that we love and the staff are very friendly and helpful; The adjacent "Garage" with bar and music is an attraction for us.

Liked: Staff & service
It was very cute and chic, but also rundown and noisy. I chose it because I went to an event at the Inn. I would stay here again 🙂

2/5 Poor

Traveled with partner
Room was ok, although the bed was very hard and not to our personal preference. I think it would have been a good experience except for the excessive noise. Terrible band playing right outside our window and very loud. Luckily ended at 11pm, but then all the people and cars! Sirens in the night…in the morning loud truck and loud men doing something to it -again right under our window. Staff was polite and the muffins for breakfast were great.

A cute property, a friendly family staff, and even while super busy with a wedding next door and 50th birthday group we never felt overlooked. My only disappointment was the breakfast offering of pastries, bagels, yogurt, coffee and tea. A very normal continental spread when I was hoping for at least eggs or the ability to order a gluten free meal from an Inn/restaurant combo.
