NOT THE RITZ BUT,Posted Nov 5, 2013
Cons: The parking situation needs to be improved. The only criticism that I have about the visit there.
If you are looking for a charming room, without all the glitz and glam, plastic and glass, then this is your place. We found it to be quite adequate for our needs while in the area. The room was spacious, clean and nicely appointed. For a hotel that has been in the same location since the 19th century, it is quite a nice place. This is the way hotels used to be and still are at the Wayne. The restaurant attached to the hotel is a great place to have a meal. I would rate 7-8/10. The fully stocked bar and wine list are more than adequate. All in all, I'd highly recommend the hotel and would stay there again when we are in the area.

Staff very helpful. Overnight stay for a wedding so really didn't spend alot of time there. Had to leave early the next day. Bed & pillows were quite comfortable.

We will come back next summer -- my only complaint was a few stray hairs in the bathtub...otherwise, great!

Lovely older hotel, sophisticated, eclecticPosted Aug 23, 2013
Pros: The unconventionality and the historical authenticity of entering the hotel through the bar and restaurant area. This place has personality.
Cons: I believe there is no elevator. (I didn't see one, didn't care.) Maybe one could be added, though it would be sad to give up 3 rooms to install it.
Location: Lots of waterfront activities, campgrounds, and antiquing. Having a child at one of the nearby camps provides an excuse to stay at this lovely hotel.
Lovely older hotel with antique everything, but it all works. My third-floor room overlooked one of the busier streets, providing an interesting view and some sun from the south-facing window. The building is a historical landmark and has been carefully preserved, with historically appropriate woodwork and charmingly gentle slopes to some of the floors. The atmosphere is a combination of historical authenticity and calm sophistication. The servers, all dressed in black, move seamlessly between the restaurant and the front office for hotel matters as needed. The menu offers sophisticated, elegant entrees and thoughtfully prepared, delicious everyday fare. My meal was a treat. The service throughout the hotel and the dining room is excellent. The people are kind without being over-solicitous. I look forward to returning.

Close to wedding venuePosted Aug 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
We attended a family wedding in the area so the location was very convenient. Our corner room was large, clean and comfortable. It was also noisy until about 1:30 because the restaurant/bar was below us, but it was a good choice for us.

hotel with no elevatorPosted Aug 6, 2013
Pros: very unique setting. It was convenient for our purpose.
Cons: It is very difficult transporting luggage up four flights of stairs. The info. on this hotel should include the fact there is no elevator service.
Location: For us it was near the relatives we were visiting.
The room we were assigned the first night fronted on a major highway that had a traffic light right outside our window. Second floor. I asked for a room away from the noise and they gladly moved us to the third floor, rear of the building. Much better nights sleep.

Great "vintage" hotel: She is an "oldie".Posted Jul 25, 2013
Pros: The prompt and courteous service. The very "old-ness" of the structure
Cons: Let's have breakfast.
Location: An interesting downtown--and you are there--the railroad history, the shops. Too bad about their closed down excursion train. Very scenic area.
This is a "downtowner" with free parking. Excellent restaurant, but no breakfast even though they advertised and promoted omelets, steak and eggs, etc. Be aware, if it matters to you, that this wonderful old 3 story structure doesn't have an elevator and that the bathrooms have a shower stall rather than a tub. You have to get a secret code for the Internet daily. And a different one for each device. The bar area looks really cool with lots of beer taps. She is a typically quirky old girl. If you want the Mariott, don't stop. If you enjoy good old fashioned hospitality, come on down!
