    Lady at the front desk did me a huge favor. Was in town for work. I normally stay at The Nest. Forgot to book a room and when I got off at 6 AM, I had no place to stay. She allowed me to check in hours early. Thanks!

    good deal, good stay

    Overall, the stay for one night was great. However, the building itself is old so, you will hear people walking from second floor and the beverage machine that was located right in front of our room was noisy all night.

    Cute and cozy inn

    Such a sweet inn in a centrally located part of town! Lots of eateries nearby or a short drive away. The room was spotless and not outdated at all. Would stay here again!

    Keep looking for sure

    Owners are really uneducated, especially with running a hotel but also common sense. They give you 30 minutes extra for late check out.. The sheets had brown stains all over them, mainly the bottom fitted sheet that you sleep on. The comforter had stains and smelled weird so we threw it off the bed. They called 4 times and housekeeping knocked 3 times in the span of 11:30-11:35. All due to me packing bags rushing to get out and being 5 minutes later than they wanted. Also, on the phone when I called for late check out she stated 11:30 or 11:45 because if your any later than 12:00 pm then they charge for an extra day.. These people are a joke and so is their hotel. DONT stay here.
