    Room is simple but clean and convenient. The bed is very comfortable. The patio with seatings in the courtyard is very lovely and we loved having breakfast there and spending time in the evening there.

    Lovely stay at this Inn. Rooms were beautifully appointed. Front desk staff was very kind and helpful. Coffee and nibblies in the a.m. were great. Towels were super. Rooms were very clean. Great location. Easy to get to everything. Very happy and will be back!
