Moorings Inn is old. The floors creak, the stairs are narrow, the windows are single pane, but that's part of the charm of the place.
The complimentary breakfast was complete with a number of nice baked goodies. The coffee was good- you'll find the water for the coffee out on the porch. I would recommend getting to the breakfast early as it can get picked over if you're a late riser.
My room had old, sometimes antique, furniture. I found myself wishing that I had a glass of wine that I could sip whilst lounging on the vintage settee in my own parlor. Yes, my room had a parlor with a writing desk and big comfy chair as well as the settee.
It's not a dump, just not flashy and new. It is simple and Old World/European.
