We stayed at the secrect garden inn this past weekend. Dominique the owner and the inn keepers were very friendly and helpful. The service made up for the flaws in the room. The place is 4 blocks from State street(where all the action is). You could walk it up during summer, but not during cold season. The breakfast was good and so were the snacks.The room was okay - not too great. It wasn't too clean, the rugs looked very old and the room was small with a tiny TV. The room was noisy, we could hear everything from our neighboring rooms.
There were 4 other couples who stayed in the house during our stay, they were friendly and nice. Overall I would rate this place - average (not bad).
