While construction is going on you cannot beat the price to pay for staying here. When you are coming from rte 33 keep a close eye so you don't miss making a sharp turn off the road onto the lot. The hotel is up a hill with construction in front, but you will enter a bit down from it and drive up past the construction vehicles and over wooden boards to behind the second brick building and park behind that. You will enter from the rear door and on that floor in room 202 is where you register. Our room was large, bright and comfortable - beautifully decorated! Very comfortable mattress, comforter and pillows. Slept like a baby! The bathroom was a nice size, pretty and better quality toiletries. We had a refrigerator in the room and a large flat screen new tv with many channels. Modern alarm/ipod clocks. Once construction is complete, this room will be twice the price.
As far as negatives: Breakfast was bread, fruit and coffee only. The 1863 Cafe was still being renovated so was not open; however, we ate at Scottys down the road which was great so it all worked out. Our shower head squirted quite a bit of water out its side. Registration made an error and mixed up my charge card with someone else's room. We asked whether there were any Memorial Day activities in town and were told they didn't know, and they didn't offer to find out or offer any suggestions - so the staff was not that friendly - they were just basic. It would have been nice to have a tv channel guide, instead we had to scroll thru the channels.
With that all said, it is understood that there will be kinks when a place is being renovated and it did not detract from our overall experience. We would recommed staying here. Wishing you safe travels!
