Went for 1 sat. night w/o a reservation. I'm a planner, so this is rare. It was the end of summer and most of the smaller hotels/B&B's were booked. From the phone call to Charlie to the breakfast the next day, we had a 10+...More

Great location blocks from downtown. Nice staff. Condition of the rooms vary (some have a/c) and there is no elevator. One room had a porch with rotting wood and shutters that didn't close properly...clearly more $$ could be put into this property. We enjoyed a...More

Staff at the front desk are extremely helpful. We arrived by car but walked everywhere once we got to the Upham. Maps, public transport info etc all available from staff.
