Recent guest reviews

Advertised as a B &B but really a spare, spartan room in a house with no amenities what-so-ever. I booked this hotel as it was close to my high school and I was there for my 50th Anniversary Reunion. I returned to the hotel for the night at 10:30 P.M. and was awakened at 12:30 P.M. by a loud, raucous party coming from the living area below. When I complained to the manager by text and phone, I was told that they book parties and it is to be expected, but not to worry - the guest would leave by 2:30 P.M. They left at 4:30 and I was able to get a few hours sleep. I was told to expect the same situation the following night, so I left the hotel and did not stay the second night. This is not the charming, quaint B&B as advertised, but more like a hovel and a dump. I did receive a full refund for my stay but still, and thank the owner of the hotel and Orbitz for that but still, it is an experience that I wish I did not have - be forewarned.

We do apologize for Mark's experience at our location. We rarely have events at our location. When we do have events at our location the music is turn down after 11pm. We have a very nice and clean establishment as advertised with 5 star ratings from all of our guests who stayed here who returns on a regular basis from other vacation rental websites.
