We stayed for one night in August, we made the reservation over the phone and hadn't seen the room first. Big mistake. The room was tiny, and the carpet really dirty. Filthy. The little "toy" window air conditioning produced only noise. The bed was awful, small and bouncy. The room was stuffy and much too hot, but the only window didn't open.
The location is central, it's great if you want to walk around town or to the lake. But you can hear traffic all the time, they are on the main road.
I've read the other reviews, I don't know where people come up with "quaint and cheerful". It was downright depressing, we couldn't wait to check out. I suspect these are not genuine.
The restaurant downstairs is decent.
