The property is old New England and quaint. Some rooms were chilly but bedroom was warm with heat on. Food was mediocre, at best. It might have just been when we stayed. Most employees friendly overall.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Awful stay. My sister and I stayed in a room with twin beds. The smell in the room was a mix between smoke, urination and water damage from the past. It was clear carpet hadn't been replaced in years. Bathroom door didn't close all the way. "Housekeeping" came 1/4 days we were there but never emptied trash. Front desk never had a staff member present. They claimed they were booked through the weekend but we never saw more than 2 cars in the parking lot. The smell was so bad in our room we finally had to force windows open and sleep with them open for the last 2 days of our trip. I don't think anyone had gone into this room for a number of months. Will not be staying here again. Do not recommend.
