If you are accustomed to room rentals through craigslist or Air BnB this is a good value for what you get. If you are used to professionally run inns you'll probably be more comfortable elsewhere.
There is no signage outside, the elevated porch has no railing, the inside is cluttered with the owner's personal items, and the room names are handwritten on signs taped to the door. There was hair from a hairbrush in our bathroom when we arrived. The room, though facing the street, does not have blinds or curtains and you can easily see into the room from the street. You share a bathroom and common areas with the owner, there is no separate innkeeper's quarters like most b&bs. All of these factors gave the impression that this is a personal residence first and renting rooms is a side business.
We chose to stay elsewhere, forfeiting what we paid for 2 nights. I have stayed at around 15 different b&bs and usually find negative reviews to be from overly critical/picky people, I have never left anything less than a glowing review before now. I just want others to know what to expect from their experience so they can make an informed decision about whether it's the right accommodations for them.
