Small, quaint and perfect for romance. Not as accommodating as the other inns in the area but it’s still nice and perfect for couples. There is a pretty good restaurant as part of this and a spa. It’s right on the river which is a good location, a little bit back from the chaos

I was not aware of any pleasant odors but I would not be surprised if they do. Any hotel on the water would need to spray to keep away mildew and mold from all the moisture.

"I would love to stay in any room there! They each have there own character. It's more like a bed and breakfast than a 'hotel'."
"No elevator, take first floor only (sorry, no view)"
"The 1st & 2nd floor pool side balcony is common to all rooms, but third floor rooms are each private & unique"
"Go for a suite with a view of the river!"
"Our room overlooked the swimming pool and we enjoyed that access, with our own patio."
