6.0 Okay
Pros:The old charm and the location are great.
Cons:The facility has not been well kept.
8.5 Very good
Pros:The front-desk staff were so welcoming accommodating to our needs. The rooms feel luxurious- just don't look too closely at the peeling wallpaper or cracked walls. The views are nice (we had a riverview room), and I would love to return again in warmer weather. The hotel was a short walk from many wonderful bars and restaurants.
Cons:The food is nothing special, a lot of the entrees seemed like leftovers from nights previous. The bar was small and the staff soured my evening by complaining about their coworkers. The hot tubs are very loud- it's distracting to enjoy a romantic evening and hear the loud whiirs of your neighbors jets firing up. The wallpaper in the rooms was beginning to crack and peel. The placement of the furniture was nonsense. I understand that nobody checks into this hotel to watch TV, but most of the TVs were small old tube TVs, and if you had a flat screen in your room the image was cut off by the four poster bed.
8.0 Very good
Pros:fireplace and quaintness
Cons:There was only one bar of soap to use in bathroom and sink.
7.3 Good
Pros:Location, location, location! The old charm is wonderful and I enjoyed the decks and old time bar.
Cons:Beds were "taco-like". Need new mattresses.
