Be ready to have a surprise on price, over 300$ more of your reservation price from Expedia. I’d better know it before the uncancelled reservation is made that I should pay 20$ per day for each extra person ( more than 2). In addition, the sofa bed absolutely non comfortable. Good hotel but overpriced at the end.

Great stay at Leland House
This was our second stay at the Leland House and we enjoyed it very much. The room was very comfortable and we had a space heater to keep it at just the temperature that we wanted. The cook-to-order breakfast was delicious and the staff took good care of my gluten-free husband. They also helped us out with a deck of cards when we left ours at home.
