Caretakers Of, Oct. 2017

Pros. The location is excellent. The rooms are well decorated and well cleaned. The coffee maker works, the iron and ironing board work. The inn is only about 1/2 mile from 4th street where there are many excellent stores and restaurants. The inn has off street parking and let me keep my car there for 4 hours after I checked out. The wifi is strong. I was very pleased with this excellent and affordable hotel.

Cons. The fan in the bathroom is quite noisy, but that is my only complaint.

Pros. Rooms don't look how they do online- it looks like they've spent some money to renovate. It's nicer than I thought it was going to be. Microwave and refrigerator in room. Room was clean. Amtrack is near by so it's kind of loud all night. Staff was nice. It's worth the money if you need a room for a night or two.
