The continental breakfast and owner were very nice. The room was clean. However, I could hear people's voices from the next room even though they were talking at a normal level. In my bathroom I could hear a full conversation from the room next door.

We absolutely loved our stay here! My sister and I are on a road trip and this is one of the coolest and unique places we have stayed. It’s a nursing home that has been remodeled into a hotel and it just makes for a really cool experience. The rooms are nice, the beds are comfy, and it has had everything we have needed. We talked with the owner for a while and she has been so friendly and welcoming and has made sure we have had everything we needed. Did I mention that the breakfast was amazing?! If we are ever back in the area, we will definitely be staying here!! Thank you so much for a great stay!!
