Beware Groupon users, print out your voucher and bring it with you. I was so glad I did, the check-in lady asked me how I wanted to pay my remaining balance of 55.00 plus ( can't remember the exact amount). I was dumbfounded, I explained there should not be a balance as the Groupon was for a fireplace room at 69.00 a night. She then informed me that my Groupon had expired but, that she did apply the 69.00 toward the balance.
So, I then explained how my Groupon had NOT expired, that I had followed the Groupon instructions:

There was another lady there who read over my voucher and asked if she could make a copy (I guess I wasn't the only one having problems with their Groupon voucher) She agreed that I did make my reservation according to the voucher instructions and therefore, I only had to pay the tax on the room. (Made the reservation on January 25th almost two months before the expiration date.)
Once that was settled we got our key for room nine. The carpeting on the staircase could have used a good vacuuming. We had trouble with the key and lock but after twisting and turning we made our way in. The room was large with a huge fireplace and where the corner windows met, was a sitting area. One set of blinds didn't close, but with the curtains it was ok. The room and furnishings fit the period of the building. The balcony was nice just to be able to sit outside and do nothing. The bathroom could use an update, overall it was how I thought it would be, nothing fancy nothing bad. I've stayed in better and I've stayed in worse. Comparing the Gold Hill Inn to Powers Mansion Inn, I would pick Gold Hill Inn hands down. Powers Mansion Inn, has a very high rating, but, I think Gold Hill was by far a better value for the Groupon price and I liked the atmosphere of Gold Hill alot more, plus I liked the rustic feel. I did miss the breakfast included with the Groupon, but the dinning crew was very nice and gathered up a tray for me and carried it to my third floor room.
