Looking for a quiet. private get-away far from the tourists and noise? Then DON"T stay here. If you're looking to be smack dab in the middle of the crowd (even when you use the bathroom) then this is your place. It's different; that's for sure. There is absolutely NO privacy, and guests come and go like a carousel. Be prepared to share one of the 3 bathrooms with the rest of the guests (unless you book the room with a private bath, but what's the fun in that?) And be prepared to stay up all night because the Basement Bar (it's in the basement!) rocks until about 4:00 am after which the trucks and motorcycles have a "loudest pipes" competition. Then the bottle collectors begin sorting glass bottles at 5:00am.
Did I mention that this place is different? Ms. Tina! Ms. Tina will let you in and out the front door at absolutely any time of the day or night, arrange for cab pick-up at the front door, have the coffee going when you finally roll out of bed, and regal you with stories of the ghosts whose spirits haunt Miss Molly's. She's amazing.
When you arrive, Ms. Tina will meet you at the front, where you are faced with an impressively steep staircase (not handicap accessible in any way) and help you drag your luggage up. She will assign you one of the 12 (I think) rooms that open into a central parlor. There is a small kitchen, where Ms. Tina will invite you to store your cold beverages or doggie-bags. The 2 of the 3 bathrooms have original claw-foot tubs (but you can shower in them, which is scary when you've had a few too many, IYKWIM). The other has a built-in shower. The bathrooms are small, but they were clean and there were plenty of towels. Think of it as posh camping.
It's perfect for a girls' trip, (or guy's trip, also), a quick week-end getaway where privacy is not so much in demand. I wouldn't recommend it for children due to the adult nature of the place and the whole shared bathroom situation.
We had an absolute blast and will return---soon---and frequently!
