This Inn has some positives and some negatives.
Positives 1) Location is excellent, close to everything, a drawback would be that you are located in the middle of the carriages and the smell of horses IS STRONG. We were OK because we accepted it for what it was. Did not smell it in the rooms.The associates were wonderful to us, we were in a big vehicle and had to park in the carriage parking lot. These people are to be commended (parking lot associates) Palmer Inn (I hope) pays them a little fee of some kind.
2) Cindy is very nice and made us feel welcome. 3) the privacy was great. The house is old,
and the floors are uneven sometimes, this is OK we expected that. Now For some negatives. 1) Shower curtain liner was very mildewed, not a little, a lot. Second night did not shower at all because the shower was too dirty, also did not look like it had been wiped down. 2) No soap for shower 3) Kitchen soap on sink in bathroom for washing hands etc. 4) Rug in room needs a shampoo, very dirty. 4) Rug in next room, old shag and dirty 5) toilet plunger by commode very used and not covered 5) Self help kitchen (OK) Husband walked to market to get enough milk to have cereal 6) Ants in several places on counter (kitchen) 7) Ice maker was not working that we could tell. This Inn needs to have a refresher and some decent soap and other ammenities. Cindy had stated that she had been very busy, maybe she could use some help. I have stayed in a lot of B&B and Inns Old is Not DIRTY, there is a difference. Everything looked like seconds. I know Cindy can only work with what she is provided. I would not stay in this Inn again unless corrections were made. A note of interest, a co-worker and I exchange reccomendations of places to stay (she travels a lot) and I told her I could not recommend your Inn (I am sorry).
