The location of the house is really great. We had no desire to drive a car while we were in town. We had an easy trip in from the interstate and were able to park and walk to take the bus everywhere we wanted to go. The bus downtown was about three blocks away and so easy to use. The house is really cute, and while it may be a little run down - you just don't really notice. We were greeted at the front door by a really friendly staff member. We were early, and she stopped what she was doing to pour us a drink and get us a snack so that she could finish preparing our room. The room was small, but I expect that at a bed and breakfast. There was a lot of noise out on the street at night over the weekend. But, honestly, the house is practically on campus, so if you don't expect that your expectations aren't realistic. They do give you ear plugs, we used them, and no problems. The bed was really comfy, but the pillows are horrible - bring your own. The room was small, but the space was used incredibly well, fitting in a bed, desk, chair, and wardrobe. The bathroom was small, but again well used space. The house was really comfy and not pretentious like a bed and breakfast can tend to be. Breakfast was prepared early both mornings, and was quite good. The variety of items to choose from was quite extensive. There were warm and cold options, and coffee was available at least an hour before breakfast everyday. There is a fridge and microwave available for guests to use. We would definitely stay here again, and would recommend it to other guests. Just keep your expectations realistic, you are near campus, there will be a lot of students around.
