Needs help...except the outdoors is adorable!
We used to stay at the Upham long ago. And I don't believe they've updated it since...? I had to leave to stay elsewhere. I was upgraded and would have hated to see where they were going to put me. The room was freezing cold and the heater was just and all around. The fireplace is gas so doesn't heat. No amenities such as bottled water or coffee maker. I sat for over 15mins waiting for breakfast but no one ever came so I just left.

Night at the Upham
Only complaints was the parking and that the customer service person seemed a bit too flippant. The location was great, near the Arlington. Nice room, on the small size but really nice. Continental breakfast was served until 11o'clock which was lovely, good variety and quality; the weather was good and I ate outside, the garden was nice.

What a small hotel should be. Great ambiance.
What a find! Coolest hotel we have discovered since La Posada in Winslow.

Comfortable and clean
The Upham was fantastic! We were given a complimentary upgrade to a room with a king bed and fireplace upon checkin. The room was clean and comfortable. The wine and cheese and Oreos and milk were a nice addition.

Too expensive for what you get...!
This hotel too expensive for what you get. No parking ever in lot. Rooms so tiny it would be crowded for one person, let alone two. The bathrooms were small with no shelves. The place is in bad need of updating. Breakfast a disappointment. Wouldn't recommend.
