“Would not stay here again”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2004

We stayed at the Terrace Inn on our second night of our vacation. I found the Terrace Inn online and thought it looked really charming. Well it turned out not to be so charming. We booked two adjoining rooms-one for us and one for the kids. Our stay could have been fine but for a few fixable problems. First off the kids were freaked out by short curyl hairs (you know the type) on their sheets and there was something brown smeared on the blanket. The walls are really thin so we had to keep the kids really quiet-not their fault it is an old inn after all. But the pipes which were displayed on the rooms ceiling clunked loudly all night every time someone used the water/toilet making it hard to sleep. Our rooms did not have air conditioning so we were lucky it was not hot. Also the showers alternately scald or freeze you out. I thought it was just mine but hubby said the one in the other room did the same thing. The biggest problem with our stay was we were not told what time the continental breakfast served. We got down to the dining area an hour before check out and the manager said there was not much left and her attitude let us know that for some reason she really didnt want us in there-maybe because we have kids? My hubby said he looked and there was still food and other people were eating.........For what we paid I feel we should not have had to go hunt up a place to go feed the kids. My husband was really steamed.

My husband and I purchased the Inn in May 2004. We recently became aware of this negative comment posted about our Inn. It apparently occurred 1 1/2 years ago. just 3 months after we purchased the Inn. The manager at that time was very competent, however, more used to a corporate hotel climate and less accommodating about "bending the rules" i.e. breakfast time. She should have been more accommodating as we would be now. Our staff is extremely helpful and friendly, and the Inn has greatly improved in terms of quality of housekeepers training, dining program, and customer care.
Our Historic Inn has received a "facelift" of over 30 rooms, our menu and quality of food has been totally revamped..and we have hired new staff whom we have trained to have a friendly, flexible (within reason) and caring attitude. It needs to be said that some people just don't care for Historic Inns, our Inn does not have a TV in every room, a pool, exercise room, but it more than makes up for it in terms of charm, atmosphere, staff, food and the serenity and comfort it inspires. We hope folks will give us a chance...
Thank you..Patty and Mo Rave, (commercial URL)
