overnight stay
We stayed for one night only, in the Michael David room on the 3rd floor. The room appeared clean, however the plastic flower arrangements in the room were covered in a thick layer of dust. The room had a slight musty smell, and my p.j.'s smelled musty the next morning. Very thin walls...I could hear the man in the next room snoring all night. You could also hear the music from the tavern downstairs, altho it wasn't overly loud. There was no one there at the front desk most of the time. Upon our arrival, I had to walk to the kitchen of the tavern to find someone to give us information. There is no parking, but we were directed to a parking lot behind a building on the corner and was told altho it was not monitored, we could leave our car there and it would be ok. It was. The location of the hotel was excellent. Right in the middle of everything so we did not need our car. The breakfast was a huge disappointment. It was not a full breakfast, which since there is a kitchen there I don't understand why it wasn't. It was all just cakes and bagels. No milk, just 1/2 and 1/2, which we hate. It just seemed like they put no effort into it. Bare bones. Even with all this, I would probably stay there again just because of the location to town.

Clients from abroad stayed here for a business trip. We chose this hotel for them due to the historic background of the hotel. Clients were very happy with service and cleanliness.

Stayed in "Michael David" Room in the 1700s part of the building. The room had, shall we say, 'Character' but was very comfortable. The hallways & stairs had quite the colonial charm about them. Will certainly stay there again.

The hotel was nice and the staff very friendly. We stayed in the Bovier room which was nice. My only suggestions for the hotel would be for them to buy a new mattress for that room as it was pretty squeaky and to do something with the tub as it looked a little worse for wear. The center of town is adorable and enjoyable to walk through.
