“It was nice better than expected”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

We stayed this weekend Friday the 9th to Sunday the 11th at the Farmstead Inn and wasn't disappointed. The rooms were very clean, and the people were nice. The breakfast was good except there was no fruit other than red apples, and the pool & hot tub were nice. I would stay at this hotel again.

We were able to get a room at the Farmstead Inn and felt so lucky to have gotten one
with just having arrived. Everyone there was so pleasant and helpful. They have wonderful personalities and are, I believe, the friendliest folk you will ever meet. From checking in to the service in regard to our room right down to the breakfast foods and hats off to the cleanliness in
this hotel. Remarkable. Great stay....would go there again in a heartbeat....and honestly can
hardly wait to return again. Oh and one other thing; everyone we met had a custom of bidding you 'hello' or 'good day' accompanied by a smile....I ask you....where on earth do you find this? Thanks everyone there!!!!!

My friend and I took a spur of the moment trip, and found this awesome place! The place was very nice with new renovations and friendly staff. We enjoyed the windows that opened in our room allowing us to listen to the night sounds and to see the stars. It was so close to all the shopping and entertainment. We are looking forward to our next stay!

good location right across from the flea market, nice layout of the hotel with added side rooms for visiting or playing games or enjoying a fireplace when seasonal, and cozy couches. However, room 174 was too noisy because of generators right outside the window. We felt for $130, AAA rate, this was a lousy room location. Aslo, there were so many people the next morning for breakfast that patrons were taking their breakfast trays back to their rooms as there wasn't enough seating. Only after numerous people carried out trays did the staff finally open a spacious overflow room. We complained about the lack of sleep because of excessive noise and were told nobody has complained before. Well, they have now. No compensation was offered. We've decided to look elsewhere on a return visit. My opinion, over priced...

Room Tip: Don't take room 174. Very noisy from outside generator/airconditoning units....

Great view.... Room smelled great, very clean and in order. I liked it that there was a mirror and sink outside of the bathroom. The breakfast was great! Our son played basketball, we played ping pong, sat in the hot tube and went swimming. I would stay here again!

Room Tip: 4 of us went.... 2 queen size worked wonderful.

The rooms were spacious-especially nice was that it had a sink and mirror out-side the bath room and a full bath-shower(tub), stool and sink and lots of counter space. I stayed here with my sister and brother-in-law plenty of room. Very clean, modern, ample breakfast. Some of the stuff, like breads seemed dry otherwise great. I'd stay here again-you can walk to lots of the attractions and not have to fight a small towns traffic. It's across the street from the Flea market and Auction. A short ways from the Blue Gate Theatre.

Will not stay here again, we came for a quilt show for the weekend. In order to have a coffee pot in your room,u need to upgrade the room. WHAT, Really. I have never heard of that, you'd think for a Hundred bucks a night they could throw in a coffee maker. Irritating to say the least.
