Stay here! The staff was among the friendliest I have met in many years. Southern hospitality - terrific.
The rooms are sharp, the flooring looks good, the bedding is adequate and comfortable, not bad. Very impressed on walking into the room for the first time.
They are working hard on a short-staff to finish renovations and so forth, the hotel was recently acquired in 2013, from what I understand.
My only recommendations are: 1) to conceal the cabling from the wall-mounted television - this can be done with 1" faux paneling/housing from a construction store. Does not need to dangle like that. 2) Clarify at what time guests should expect maid service by brochure or at check-in. Time of arrival was inconsistent and I want to ensure I'm not in the room so that it can be properly cleaned. One day they arrived around noon, another day around 4 P.M. and so forth. A D.N.D. card should be printed which indicates request for service on the reverse.
Overall, we were quite happy and would more than likely return. This is a fine hotel, only 1 Mi. from the district and around the corner from a fort attraction.
