Both attended a wedding and reception and stayed here recently. The wedding was fabulous and the food and ambiance of the Bernards Inn is fantastic. Only a short walk upstairs to our room, which was clean and comfortable. We had a great stay and want to come back so that we can sample the dinner menu next time.

What a quaint hotel with many nice touches. Each room is different and from what I saw each room is different. I stayed in room 1 which was lovely and spacious.

I have stayed at this hotel twice now, and both times I have received amazing service. The hotel is an older building, but that adds to its charm, in my opinion.

Stayed here for one night in a supreme king room and was graciously upgraded upon checkin (originally booked the double since I was traveling alone). The staff is very friendly and helpful. The reason for the 3 stars is because the room is tired, you can hear people in the hallway, and the bed is a rock, although the sheets... More

I realize this hotel is highly-rated and has many awards. However, I cannot honestly see why. The rooms are very small and the tubs are out-dated. The TVs are small and in the way as wall-mounted. It's a boutique-type hotel, so it appeals to a certain style or class. I didn't find it appealing as a business traveler. I only... More
