Nice place. Saw some reviews about small rooms, the room was small but we wete just there to rest and sleep so don't need a lot of empty space. Breakfast was nothing but coffee and crescents not even anything to put on them. Lots of places to eat within walking distance.

Small inn in great location.

Room

it was a very well maintained property and the staff was very friendly and helpful

Loved the wonderful staff—so helpful finding bus routes to get around the city. The soft towels were so nice! The elevator was a little slow but found the stairs on the second day as an alternative. The only thing I didn’t like was the industrial cleaner smell in the room. After a few minutes I didn’t notice it and otherwise it was a great stay. Very walkable to the historical areas of the city.

Nice hotel tucked away in a great location. Terrific staff. Plumbing needs updating. Would definitely stay there again.

Nice place. Close to lots of restaurants. Friendly staff. Comfortable beds. Would stay again

Quaint little hotel. Great staff are room was small but was to be expected due to price and being located in the city. My wife and I weren't disappointed at all outside of the pillows. Should of had more than three or had bigger ones

Great location in historic area close to South Street. Bed was not a great quality and bedding was old. Toilet ran on and off all night. It was clean and the staff was nice.

Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean, inviting and comfortable. I would stay here again and I highly recommend it to others.

Great location, friendly staff! I’d definitely stay again!

Staff was very helpful.

Clean, spacious room. Beds are firm. Staff was friendly and helpful with restaurant recommendations and directions.

No coffee Had to wander the streets to find some in the morning. Too chilly in room n no way to change it Nice place otherwise but having access to early morning coffee broke it for me

Room was small but expected and fine for 2 of us. The hotel is nice and in a safe residential area close to the historic district. Not a 5 star but perfectly acceptable and a great value for the price! Where they earn the rating is the amazing customer service. I have never experienced the level of service in any hotel. Everyone was friendly from the desk people to the maintenance crew and the maids. The desk people answered my questions before I could ever ask them and really enjoyed giving advice and directions. Discount parking was in a near by garage but the hotel put the parking right on my bill so exiting the garage was a breeze. I highly recommend this boutique hotel.

I liked the price. Also the breakfast, the window was nice and big

The hotel is in an excellent central location, as it is near cafés, restaurants, nightlife and public transportation. Staff members were friendly and helpful. Steps were taken to deal with the pandemic such as a temperature check and provider hand sanitizer. Breakfast was very basic, but it was included in the charge. I would certainly recommend this boutique hotel to someone who is looking for a clean hotel in a central location.

Thanks for the feedback. We appreciate your concerns. Were you aware that we offer seven different room types...each varies in physical room size and bed size. Perhaps one of our larger rooms would best suit your needs upon a return visit. Additionally, gust supplies are readily available by texting or calling our Front Desk 24 hours a day. Additionally each room has additional pillows and blankets stored directly within the bed frame. We hope to see you again.
