Who dosnt take cash ? ...This woke place
The property is expensive based on its condition. They do not accept good American cash which prompted us to look elsewhere for out extended stay. The location to town is the best feature.

Way over priced
This is an old hotel that shows its age. One rickety elevator and the whole hotel is very outdated. The best thing about it were the comfortable beds if you could find them due to almost nonexistent lighting.

Old building
The check in person was not friendly. I feel the room was to small, the floor was slanted by the bathroom and it through me off. The music Saturday night I could hear until late. I was told that the were the rooms were full and I don’t think they were.

Would Return
Loved the traditional and historical feel of Stearnes Hotel. Felt a bit like going back in time. Comfortable and clean. Bathroom a bit small but adequate. Completely different experience from modern chain motel/hotel.
