Very friendly and clean-great location
Staff very friendly. Stayed in historic rooms which are small but very comfortable and very clean. Staff more than happy to help answer any questions and direct you to sites of the area.

Stayed for Thanksgiving with my fiance in room 112 making the reservation through based on the positive reviews... The first thing I noticed when checking in was what appeared to be bleach stains splattered along the tired red carpet left from the 80's. Not a big deal until I woke up in the morning to take a shower and found black mold throughout the bathroom! This is beyond disgusting and should be a health code violation at the very least as mold has a litany of disease(s) associated with it some neurological, respiratory, allergies, etc. I spoke to the front desk on the way out and never heard back from their manager who was too busy indulging in their cereal breakfast in the adjacent room... BOTTOM LINE: go somewhere else, this place belongs in the past.

room was good.

This hotel was only so so. The staff wasn’t mean, but they weren’t that friendly either. The tv in the room was small and old school. Our room in the corner was small. Breakfast was boring, no hot eggs or waffles. The Main Street outside was super noisy. There were loud people late at night and crying seagulls in the early morning. The only good thing about this place is the location. I love the area.

An average hotel
Nice hotel but no parking unless you want to pay $27 per night for valet. Also, not sure why the bathroom was not cleaned and the soap, conditioner, etc., dispensary did not work.
