So our experience with the hotel was this: AMAZING AMAZING service, great location, wonderful price, and HORRIBLE bed. Thus it gets an average rating with the potential to really turn some things around by investing in decent beds. We loved the service. Beyond amazing. The breakfast was fine and for the price, a gift to even have one included as...

I loved The Inn on Third from the moment I walked in. Such a warm and friendly atmosphere! Brian is a gracious host who knows the area intimately - he can give you advice about what to see and do, and the downtown shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance. My room was cozy, comfortable and quiet. I loved...

It is easy to write about something that displeases; however, it is more difficult to write a review about why something is excellent - and - somehow seems better over time. If you are looking for a swimming pool, fitness rooms, a luxurious experience - you should try somewhere else to spend those dollars; but, call the Inn on Third...

Clean , functional and conveniently located ness the Sundial Plaza.No frills just a good place to stay. They have friendly staff and a good breakfast. Just call ahead if you are checking in late. The desk closes at 10pm but they will set up a lock box for your keys.

This inn was the perfect spot for us.we were greeted at by the proprietors. They are as warm and friendly as our room. Social hour from 5 until 7 features beer and wine. I can't wait to see what the breakfast will be

Our two night stay was very pleasant. The staff is extremely friendly. The breakfast was fine. The rooms were small but clean and comfortable. Location is excellent. Everything was within walking distance. Could have used the trolley if we did not feel like walking. Once we arrived, we did not have to use the car until we checked out. Parking...
