    tl;dr: I hate writing bad reviews for small family-owned businesses. But when I shell out $230-250/night for scummy service at a place I will stay for the very few vacations I get a year, I think others should rightfully be informed. I've kept people's names...More

    About 1.5 miles. Most folks take a taxi to the Inn because of their luggage. We are only 3 blocks from downtown, so walking around is easy.

    Response from Christine D | Property representative |
    We do have rooms with 2 beds, but those rooms are already booked for Sept. 13. We also have a 2 bedroom cottage that would work. Please check our web site or call the Inn for pricing and further information.

    Depends on the day of the week, time of year and length of stay. Please check our web site for details.
