Great space for vacation
Ok, one of the best showers I have had, great plush towels and loved the shampoo and conditioner. Liked the blue indigo colors in our room and the staff was super friendly. Loved the coffee bar and snack area too.

Immaculate, thoughtful touches, highly recommend.
Such a quaint, superb place! I raved over this inn for weeks. It was a super comfortable, chic space. Rooms are on the smaller side, but I didn’t mind. I loved the items for breakfast in one of the sitting areas. We were the only guests that evening (I think) and it was very quiet. It’s a couple blocks away from the main downtown area but easily walkable. The stairs are a little narrow and steep, so if that troubles you, stay on the first floor. The room was immaculate and I was so happy with the quality and value. The linens and towels were lush… so much so that I noted the brand name! We also appreciated the included on-site parking. I would def happily return next time I am in the area. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay extremely pleasant.

Being able to use a personalized code, to not only enter the establishment but also our room, made it quick and easy. Plus makes us feel safe that no one can just walk in off the street.
