Recent guest reviews

Chose this spot because of the low rate. Ended up being really comfortable and the service was excellent. Would stay again! The area itself is a little sketchy but I wasn’t really there to tour the area.

No one to help! Although we were informed of FREE parking on the street, how can a "B&B" leave it up to its customers to fend for themselves? Suggest DESIGNATED spaces for guests. We parked several blocks away and carried luggage up an icy, narrow staircase. Guests, remember to bring your own shovel, sand and salt if staying during the winter months. Access code to building worked on third try; hmmm..a charm? THERE IS NO ROOM 2!!! All the rooms have letters (some kid's practical joke, perhaps). The rooms follow no sequential pattern. Access code inside did not work. All doors locked. No one available! Finally opened door to hallway with shared bathroom (ugh!). Called Manager and left three unanswered (to this day, in fact) voice messages. Wound up placing reservation in dispute and located another safer hotel. THIS IS A FRAT HOUSE STRAIGHT OUT OF, "Animal House!!!" Perhaps "Room 2" was the "Hallway." I cannot imagine people have given this B&B (???) 5-Stars! A warm place for the homeless, I suppose! If the Manager was "so helpful and gracious" to assist the other commenters here, then I presume there will be no problem refunding me for such a horrible experience.

Last minute and very little to choose from, we ended up booking here and we are really happy that we did! The room was comfortable, breakfast was good, and we got what we paid for, a nice place to crash!

We didn't felt safe in the area. As we arrived, nobody was there to greet us. I had to wait 1 hour in front of the house because they couldn't find my reservation which was made 2,3 months in advance. The house is a disaster! Dirty bathrooms, closets fool of stuff from previous guests or landlord?! In the bathroom there was a creepy cringy noise coming from the, what was 100 years ago, a ventilator. In the room, we couldn't close the window so I heard all the loud music, police and everything from outside! I asked David what time was breakfast because we were leaving the next day and he's response came the next day 9 hours after we left saying that it was between 8-10 but we left around 10 and no breakfast was served. If they wouldn'tve taken my money, I would've leave right on the spot! I don't recommend this location! AWFUL

I chose this place based on price as it was the lowest in the area. Although not the nicest or most impressive when it comes to accommodations, the room was still clean and up to standards, extremely friendly staff & property manager, along with a hot breakfast. I'd stay here again if I was in the area and really had no complaints! Honestly, I read some poor reviews of the place before choosing but you can't expect superior product quality when looking for the cheapest in the area! So those with a budget in mind, I'd highly recommend this location.

I was looking for a place to crash in the area last minute and this property had an opening and really was along my price range. Very friendly staff, good privacy, appreciated the lock on the door with a key code to get in. Nice breakfast the next morning as well. Definitely would stay again if in the area!

I really enjoyed staying here and would definitely stay again. It was extremely clean and the staff were more than willing to do whatever they had to in order for me to feel right at home. I really enjoyed the area and the property itself. Breakfast, though simple, was ready first thing in the morning. Thank you for a great stay!
