My wife and I stayed at House By The Pond for one month during the summer of 2007.
While I agree with the above poster that the location is in many ways inconienent, it was not such a big deal for us as we were not pressed for time and enjoyed the walks.
We found the hotel rooms to be clean but poorly maintained. The internet frequently went down and the air conditioners would freeze up and quit working every day or so. This resulted in water spilling out and warping the boards of the hardwood floors. We complained a few times but finally gave up on getting things fixed.
At no time did we feel unsafe while we were at the hotel but sometimes the area around the hotel gets scary at night.
Last but not least, the hotel took two months to credit my visa card to reflect the return of my deposit.
All in all, I would say that this hotel is an average value... if that.
