My wife and I returned to the Gables Inn after our first experience 2 years ago. We stayed in the same room (202) with an outside patio entry. When making the reservation I was told that the wine and cheese is limited to an hour and that breakfast now carries a $7.50 pp charge. That was OK since we received a nicely discounted Sunday night rate. Upon arrival we found the attendant there, but not overly engaging. The room was great and as we remembered it. Wine and cheese was serve yourself from two bottles of wine and a plate of cheddar chunks, a hunk of brie and some crackers. This is not what we remembered. If fact, after reading some reviews, I forgot about Mary, who was there on our first stay, and who made the visit. Our lingering over wine and cheese with her conversation was fantastic. Mary was not there this night. This stay's wine and cheese experience was stale by comparison. Breakfast was fine - and was worth the extra charge. The young man at the desk in the morning was engaging, warm and helpful. I was ticked at learning there was a $15 per night charge for parking. I was not told this when making the phone reservation and did not pay this charge on our first stay. It's just that parking is not plentiful and not an easy in and out. I did find it on the website after-the-fact. So, after the breakfast charge and the parking charge, and the skimpy wine and cheese experience, our "great room rate" was somewhat less great. It's a nice place and in a great location. I just don't like to be "nickle and dimed" when staying at any hotel. There is complimentary wifi, but I could not access it in my room on my iPhone.
