Stayed here one night for the Minis on the Mac event last August. The beds were nice and firm and I did sleep well which I suppose is the main thing. However, there was a brown scum line on the sink where the faucet attaches, also the bathroom floor wasn't super clean, the thing that got me the most was the 8 inches of accumulating water while showering, I actually had to stop and let it drain because I can't stand shower water around my ankles. Also, I regrettably let out a couple of "JFC's" when the water went from normal hot to scalding hot and then to freezing cold. The people running the place are very nice, I assume it's not easy. I would suggest a good power washing of the outside of the building, especially the stair wells, etc. Why leave a review now? Because I'm making a return trip to the area and regrettably I'm reading some new reviews of the same complaints that were made last fall. It's a cute, quiet place, just needs a little elbow grease.
