Quaint little hotel in good location

Hotel staff are nice and location is excellent, but for the first night into next afternoon, our room keys didn't work as their key card machine broke and each time we went out, we had to ask the staff to let us in the room which was inconvenient. Although the next day the machine was fixed and the room key card worked fine, they didn't offer anything for the inconvenience. But I can understand that too as businesses are slow due to Coronavirus. Overall, our trip was pleasant and enjoyable and staff tried their best to amend the situation. Also they delivered continental breakfast of muffin, croissant, juice, banana, apple and yogurt in a lunch bag to our room each day between 7:30-8:30am. The bed was very comfortable.
