The Inn at the Beeches provides a very comfortable room in a bucolic setting. The hotel, itself, is rather small, but the grounds are both beautiful and expansive. The lane from the road to the lobby is long and tree-lined. There is a large lawn with two ponds, complete with ducks. Every thing is quiet; the only sounds to be heard were those of chirping birds.
The Beeches gives the impression that it was new in the 1950s. The lobby is central to the building with wings extending from each side. There are no interior corridors; rather you enter your room directly from the parking lot. My expectations were limited; I anticipated a tiny room with worn furnishings, and few amenities. I was wrong. Our room was nicely furnished with a king-sized bed, two easy chairs, night stands, a desk, and an armoire that enclosed a TV and dresser drawers. And, there was room to move around! In addition the room provided a small microwave, mini-refridgerator, and a coffee maker. Reviews here, and on other sights, suggested that cleanliness might be an issue: it was not! All in all, we were quite comfortable.
The staff at The Beeches was top notch; everyone was accommodating and friendly. Our trip was unexpected and our plans were made on very short notice. The reservation process was quick and easy. We were arriving in Rome by rail. Although it turned out not to be necessary, we were offered the possibility of being picked up at the train station by the Beeches courtesy van. Another nice touch is the turndown service, complete with chocolate, bottled water, and chocolate!
There is a breakfast restaurant on site. The dining room is bright and airy with comfortable and ample seating. There is a full breakfast menu as well a a Senior's menu. All meals were cooked to order and the food was good. Three of us ate from the Senior's menu for just over $10.00; a great value! The only down side was fairly slow service. Although the wait staff was working hard, I suspect that kitchen was either understaffed, inefficient, or both.
Slow dining room service aside, The Inn at the Beeches was a good choice.
