I stayed at this hotel because it was part of the wedding invite. I enjoyed the nice room and the complimentary breakfast. Was good for what I needed. I would stay here again if the need arose, but its not something I would make a special trip for.

We enjoyed a full breakfast each morning with some lovely ladies. I really enjoyed Ms. Josephine. The grounds are well kept and clean and the rooms...

The location could not be any better, nice walk to downtown. Great staff and when you check in they give you the best cookies ever.

The property has historic feel, but is very well maintained. All of the staff were efficient, knowledgeable, and friendly. The rooms were very clean and housekeeping was thorough. Clean and quiet. Excellent breakfast with on-site staff and a great selection of items.
