Sydney at the front desk is wonderful! She did so much to accommodate our needs. She went above and beyond what I would have expected. I booked this hotel through Expedia but they made such a mess of our reservation and in the end we wouldn't have gotten the room if Sydney hadn't taken it open herself to call Expedia... More

I was looking for a place to celebrate our 20th anniversary and because of some other circumstances, was not able to book until the week before our visit. I chose this location because we wanted a room with a nice tub in the room, which we got. Some of the rooms have very outdated decor. Ours was fine, but it... More

Staff were wonderful. Very helpful. Pointed out great places to eat and visit while vising. Some of the recommended activities were not yet available, but food recommendations were spot on. Outside of hotel looks a little rough. Rooms initially appeared very clean, however ants were found in the bathroom. Also, the TV was not functional. Bed and linens were clean.

The small elegant room provides an intimate environment for couples. However, it may not be for everybody. The place is great for couples who just want to hang out in the whirlpool and drink their wine. The inn provides a complimentary bottle of wine and you can keep their wine glasses.
