The location is great and they have a nice backyard to relax. The rooms are old and musty and could use some renovation. The rates however, tend to reflect this and you can often get good rates. The family lives there and there is little common space to relax. The breakfasts and coffee could use some spicing up. We tended to forgo the breakfast and went out on our own. There is only street parking which can be a problem because you are located in town. If you have just a bike there is no problem. Good for families or young couples on a budget.
