Small inn close to many attractions around Charlestown. Inn has significant history, but none is truly captured in rooms. Rooms are basic, functional like any other roadside motel, except no phones in rooms (no Front Desk, etc to call for assistance anyway). Rooms have clean, functional bathrooms, cable TV with larger-than-average sized TVs as a plus.
Noise is significant problem, from cars travelling on adjacent highway to tavern employees taking smoking breaks on the porch by the rooms. Also poor noise insulation between rooms, especially between upper and lower floors.
Most significant complaint, however, is that when the receptionist was told the following morning about excessive noise that occurred at 4 a.m., her response was, "Why didn't you tell me about [the noise] then?" Our responses were that 1) there was no phone to call her to alert her about the noise, and 2) we were not about to exit our room and potentially run into the strangers making the disturbances. Last but not least, when we went to the main reception area at 7:30 a.m. to see if there was coffee, the front door was locked even though the receptionist denied that it was locked.
