The property is not worth the $200+ per night. We had originally paid for two nights - but when we arrived, the site was not as we had hoped (it's actually more of a vintage motel that has been spruced up with a new coat of paint) and had requested to shorten our stay to one night. The hotel would not accomodate us and told us they would only offer a refund if they could resell our room (not really an option since the motel was not full).
As it turns out, there is no airconditioning in the rooms and our room was hot and stuffly. The only adivce from the front staff was to turn on the portable fan, open the window or leave the room door ajar. Rather than suffer through an uncomfortable night, we opted to take another room in lieu of staying another night. So in the end, we paid over $450+ for one night to stay in non-airconditioned motel rooms.
If you are looking for nicely appointed quaint property which offers service at the the level which usually accompanies a $200+ rate than this is not the place for you.
This is not a motel I would recommend.
