Superb 9.0 From 51 reviews

Very good 8.0
Reasonable price in a good location
Very convenient location and a reasonable price. Owners recently taken over property and working to get all rooms up to scratch. Owners are very helpful and trying to ensure guest stays are satisfactory. No issues with our stay.

Great location and friendly new owners!
We stayed in one of the Queen-Bed rooms with a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. We overall enjoyed our stay, and the location was great! The new owners were great and super friendly. While we were there, we heard someone tell the owner they wouldn't be having breakfast because they were gluten-free and the owner went out to the grocery store and picked up some stuff just for them!
