It didn't have a refrigerator in the room (I didn't notice that fact when I reserved). But the staff solved my need to put something in a freezer. It...

My husband and I were pleasantly surprised arriving at this hotel. It's cheap and still better than a lot of hotels that are much more expensive! The rooms are big and clean. Friendly staff at the reception and breakfast was nice! The hotel is at walking distance to Old Town, in case you want to leave the car and go...

We loved the room, the sofa, the nice little bedroom the kitchenette and the dining area. TVs were out-of-sight in wooden closets unless...

Not a chain hotel, but great individual service, care and detail is part of this smaller hotel's charm. Very good pricing for this hotel. It does deserve a 5 star rating, even if small and without an onsite restaurant. Well kept rooms and hotel property. Beautiful landscaping, nice clean pool and areas, clean rooms, nice furniture, good bedding, soft pillows....

We discovered this independently owned inn over 20 years ago, and the place just keeps getting better. Agreed, the actual location is a bit odd for a motel, but the proximity to Old Town and the Trolly (5 minute walk) more than make up for it. We often eat in Old Town and have never felt threatened walking back to...
