Old facility could be charming, and the breakfast was quite nice. Bed ok, rooms clean. But there are some oddities that merit mentioning. Considerable effort (and expense) in decorating in a faux Italian style - rather than making things work a bit better. Central heat and air, with no control in the rooms - we were there in August so the AC was on. Really cold in our room! Our room downstairs faced a wall and was dark and musty. Pool was reserved all day on a Saturday for a private event. Location a couple miles from the Village (downtown).
