Old quaint hotel in a great setting in the downtown historical section across from a pretty lake. The furnishing were a tad sparse in the room. The room was good sized with a large walk-in closet and large bathroom. That said, it needed another nightstand at least. The furnishings were "antiquey", but not necessarily antiques. The one nightstand and the one small wicker corner shelf in the bathroom needed some repair. The room was clean and the bed fairly comfortable. If the room was better appointed it would have been a better than pleasant stay. It could been a "tell your friends and neighbors" stay.
We stayed during one of their busiest weekends of the year...the October Craft Show. Because of this, breakfast and lunch were buffets in their restaurants. This was too bad as I had been looking forward to their breakfast menu.
Their staff were all fantastic...in particular, the night maintenance man Tommy, and a very sweet UCF sophomore in the Beauclerc dining room (I'm sorry that I forgot her name, but she is a Hospitality major with fair skin and brown hair). Everyone greeted you and was friendly.
I give the room a three, but the staff deserve a five. But the room was too much to overcome to rate it an average of four...three it is
