The Henry Clay Inn is a quaint special B & B located in a quaint special small town. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The breakfast is great although I had to leave before breakfast time today. I have stayed there several times and LOVE it. Unfortunately this time I was given a room that faces the train tracks. I would not like to have that experience again. The freight trains that go through are loud. Currently there is on-going construction on the tracks around the station which is directly across from the Inn. This takes away from the ambiance and causes inconvenience in accessing the areas around the Inn and the station. It would be good to know the projected timeline for completion of the construction, that way travelers can plan accordingly.

    I wish there were a way I could review Orbitz. The hotel has been wonderful in helping me to rectify a booking mistake through Orbitz. Booked the wrong date by mistake and called Orbitz three times to try and clarify, they still billed me for the wrong night and charged my credit card! The hotel has been wonderful in switching the dates and not billing me for that particular night. I will never use Orbitz again, horrible customer service as they can’t understand half of what you say when you call!!
