The person who answered the phone really tried to get us a quiet room, which I appreciate, but I found out later from another person at the inn that the room we got was probably not the quietest. If you want quiet, I would NOT recommend our room, room 27 on the 3rd floor. While it is away from the road and gas station, the inn as one block from Amtrak. The night we stayed, there were train whistles at least at 10:30pm, 4am, and 6:30am. My husband is a sound sleeper while I'm not, but these woke both of us. Part of the problem in this room is that the windows aren't full panes of glass; they're slats, so they don't block sound as well. The second floor on that side of the building may be better (provided it's not by stairs, ice machines, housekeeping, etc.).
The bed was comfortable but the pillow top was thinner than I expected (compared to previous experiences using pillowtops).
Otherwise, the people at this property were all very friendly and helpful. Upon check in, they provided very helpful information, including a good list of restaurants.
Also, as many other people have mentioned, this property has good perks.
Overall, we would stay here again now that we know how to get a quieter room.
