It is perhaps adequate as an aspiring B&B, but falls short to be in the same category as a hotel. Check-in starts on the sidewalk when you pull over to the curb of the townhouse. No private drive to stop a car and unload. With hands full, we were asked to read policy and sign a form, present CC for the online reservation already using our CC number. Broken thermostat hidden behind a chest, shower switch engineered as a "faucet lip"... that required a written instruction how to use.
Heating in our room worked on "high" only. So we turned it of and used blankets instead. The beds were tucked so hard, as if stapled.
Window was located near the ceiling giving an impression that we were in a basement.
Our room was crowded with useless furniture and upright fan. The floor light turned itself on in the middle of the night...
The counter top "bar" ... priceless. The "lavish continental breakfast"... only for diabetics. Most choices loaded with sugar and sugar substitutes. A bowl fruit composed of mostly caned fruit with significant dose of preservatives and sweeteners.
Reporting our impressions to the front desk clerk generated ... "oh, so sorry..."
With almost no guests, we ended up occupying basement like cluttered room?!
