We stayed several nights, we were in the rear of the building away from road noise - not that there was that much noise in Valley Springs. The location was very convenient for us. While other reviews of this place are true about being dated - I didn't feel it was run down at all. It sort of added to the charm in my opinion. It's not a hotel chain, there's not big corporate money involved - it's a quaint, charming building and a decent place to spend some time. I didn't find the room dirty or not dusted. The fireplace was a nice bonus. Whoever cleaned our room took the time to pose a couple of my sons stuffed toys on the bed we had for him. Made me feel very much like we stayed in someone's home and not in a hotel. If you need some place "fancy" this may not be it. If you want to feel like you stayed in a distant family members guest room - this was how I felt and maybe you will too.
