The hotel rooms are clean, comfortable and fairly basic, a bit outdated. We liked the location because it's within walking distance of Main Street with its many restaurants and shops. Staff was very friendly at check-in and check-out. The continental breakfast was really bare bones, disappointing. We both laughed at the soap they provided - two little "bars" that were so small, they almost disappeared after one use (see picture). Fortunately we brought our own soap.

I was unable to stay. I cancelled on line but they charged my credit card anyway. I called them but they still are not going to return my $181. Not very hospitable considering I took the time to cancel.

We stayed here for 1 night as we were visiting some friends in town. The hotel and rooms are very clean although outdated. The hotel has a lot of character and potential otherwise. Unfortunately we had very loud neighbors having sex. The wind had blown some branches off trees so the gate to the hot tub was blocked off.
