I'm a VERY picky person when it comes to hotels/motels, but this had so many good reviews I wanted to take the chance and I'm SO glad we did! I can't wait to stay there again.
Yes, it looks like you walked into your gentle grandma's upstairs.

Yes, old furnishings can last forever when they're taken care of.
This was the CLEANEST, most inviting, spacious hotel we could have picked. The service was fantastic (and yes, I'll say it too - the donuts are to die for), every square inch was cleaned to the nines and the room was huge!
The fireplace was massive, so we laid the extra blanket on the hearth and cozied up next to the fire after a freezing night of seeing the sights. The whirlpool jetted tub was incredible and the jets had enough pressure to them to really relax your muscles. The bed was really comfortable, but the pillows were a little flat for me. I was happy I'd brought my own. We booked the room late, so we had a street-side suite, but there was no noticable road noise and the view was still great (especially with all the brightly colored leaves).
The location was fantastic. It's just 1.5 blocks to the main street and very close to our favorite sports bar in town. After we checked out on Sunday, they were gracious enough to let us keep our car parked there for the afternoon while we did some last minute touristy things before heading out in the early evening. I love the late checkout at 12 that gives you a chance to stay snuggled in the cozy room late into the morning.
