    Friendly warm and beautiful inside with an old time feel and modern conveniences. Right across from Bess &Harry’s home. Nice to get away from sterile Holiday Inn type hotels. A definite recommendation

    I don't know. You could call the front desk and I'm sure they would tell you. I imagine there may be some State regulations regarding your question.
