“Very good B&B option”
Reviewed 22 July 2012

Several buildings on the property make up the First Avenue Guesthouse. Located in a nice neighborhood. Room was spacious, well furnished, clean. Bathroom had new fixtures. Unlimited wifi. In my limited interactions with staff they were helpful and nice. The common spaces are in a separate building; I was only in the breakfast room so can't comment on the other spaces. Breakfast was good. Reasonable rates.
