My husband and I stayed here for a few days recently. We had never visited this area and the reviews of Hawthorne Inn were excellent so we decided to give it a try. Maybe we were expecting too much, but we at least expected that they would do what their web page advertised. Breakfast was the same offering every day of the 3 mornings we were there...eggs were the main course...where were all the other offerings the web page mentions? Their web page mentioned brownies and Chinese Chewies and other things as afternoon and evening refreshments...we were never offered any of that and never saw anything out in the dining room...other guests appeared to be wondering about that as well. Again, if you don't want to offer that,please do not list it as a highlight of your Inn on the web page...be honest about what you do or do not offer. We were tired and a bit hungry on a few afternoons/evenings...didn't expect to have to go to the local drug store for snacks and drinks.
Also, I know travelers can be challenging, but please find more patience when they are asking you about travel in the area. We felt rushed every time we asked a question about how to get somewhere. Yes, we were uncertain about what to do, but would have appreciated a bit more patience and concern for our questions.
