This place is the epitome of southern charm. My first night there I sat out on the wooden bench swing on the balcony, watching a great southern thunderstorm, with vines climbing up the walls all around me and mossy oak trees on the horizon. The room was clean and quaint, and the large en suite kitchen and bathroom were an awesome surprise. I didn't have a problem with parking, and the staff was friendly. My only complaints would be that the breakfast was only from 9-10am; I like to get up and explore earlier than that and hate to miss a free meal! Also the location is okay (especially since I had a car, it was really no problem to get anywhere in such a small city), but I can imagine it might be a little bit of an issue for travelers without independent transportation. Lastly, I wish the mattresses wouldn't have made so much noise. I woke myself up sometimes just from moving around; they're the kind that are encased in some type of vinyl-like material and aren't the most comfortable. But I would advise any traveler to endure these minor inconveniences and book this place for sure!
