We were in the new section. Room could have been a little bigger but was nice and clean. Appreciated the space in the vanity area. Would have liked a flat screen TV but how much TV do you watch anyway in a hotel. Had to laugh at the shower head because I remembered a review where the guy said it...

Dear Valued Guest, We’re glad to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay here at the Old Town Inn. Our deluxe rooms are approximately 350 square feet, and so while some guests feel that the rooms are very spacious, others like yourself may find them a little smaller than what you are normally accustomed to. I think as you mentioned,...

We were a bit nervous when we first arrived, as the hotel seemed to be on a main road, but it was really quiet, and the location was really convenient. It was a short drive from the gas lamp quarter and to other attractions. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was great. Parking is provided.
