Very clean room. I had made a mistake booking the room, and the owner did not charge me for the night I did not check-in. He had every right to charge me, but was kind enough not to. Thank you very much!

Worth the stay.
Front desk person very friendly, had made note of my request for ground floor and let me know that to do that he gave me an upgraded room at no additional cost. It was very nice for an older yet upgraded property.

Look further for better options!
It is an old motel, just ok. We would not have stayed at $200 a night had we known. The photos are deceiving. Calling it an inn is almost misrepresentation. It is over rated. The shower faucet didn't turn off easily, there's mold on the floor in the bathroom by the tub, there was no blanket on the bed, just a thin sheet. The photos are deceiving.
