Not modern or swanky in any way. It's just like staying at your grandma's house .... old fashioned, clean, warm and you know you are always welcome. Candy is very friendly and provides a great home-cooked breakfast. AND unusual for the US - she knows how to make a great cup of tea. If you want clinically clean and modern, this isn't the place for you, but if you want proper southern charm, you'll love it.
