I stayed at the swan for almost a month, and they really take care of you. The shuttle you as though you have your own personal driver, they are happy to give tips and advice for New York excursions. New York is a short cheap train ride away. Anytime I go to the east I will stay at the swan....

A great place To go back to on late rainy nights! We stayed here so that we could go into town and also travel to St. Mary's for a wedding. It was a cold and rainy weekend and the room was nice And warm. The service was great and the muffins and coffee in the morning was delicious.

I came here with my boyfriend for his job and they had to stay here. The room we had was "updated", which I would not call it that. The room was very very small and was not that clean, very dingy. The bed had hair on it, no fitted sheet, smelled awful, toilet was dirty. And this place can go...

I believe that The Swan did major renovations to the rooms in recent time because the carpeting in the studio suite w/kitchen I stayed in was very clean. The kitchen was immaculate including the inside of the oven and fridge. The only thing that I believe wasn't updated was the shower, but everything else was great. They also had a...

Used to live in this town and have spent quite a few nites at the Swan. However, now I'm a visitor and after searching decided to try them again.
