Loved this historic building, large wraparound porches with rocking chairs, lots of character. Did not feel overcharged at $150/night but would not want to pay more. Beautiful lobby and restaurant/bar area. Room was a little cramped, but this is an old inn so you expect...More

If you're the first one there! :D There is street-side parking, but it is not "ample." Aside from maybe 6-8 parking spaces along side the hotel, one has to walk from 25-75 yards to reach one's car.
