The rooms were clean and very cute. Updated nicely. Loved the planks on the ceiling. The owner is very sweet and helpful, and they live on property if you need anything. The only suggestion I have for them is to replace the doors on the rooms, as a lot of noise came through the door, so it could be noisy if people were outside at all.

10/10 Exceptional

This was by far one of the most amazing hotel rooms that I have ever stayed in. Felt like I was at home. I had the experience of staying in one of the newly renovated rooms and all I can say is wow. The beds, the layout, the bathroom, the cozy chair, the chandelier, the dresser everything about this room was amazing. The Kerig Coffee maker, mounted television, lamps, wall art, the floor tiles just a great hidden gem. The staff was extremely wonderful. The check-in process easy check in and check out was pretty cool. Beautiful room decor I will definitely be back.
