Beautiful inn inside and out and great location. Close to wonderful restaurants and the bustling downtown area; an easy walk to it all. The inn is lovely, spacious, and comfortable. Extremely clean. Our room 4 (the orange room) was perfect for us: very quiet, spacious enough, very clean, comfortable (great mattress), and inviting. The new owner outdid herself with the...

The West End Inn is fabulous. The space is elegant and comfortable and has been enhanced by recent changes. The new owner graciously accommodated our need to catch an early flight and had breakfast packed for us and coffee ready before scheduled breakfast time. It was once again, an excellent visit at the West End Inn.

One of the most important differences between a hotel experience and a bed and breakfast is that the B&B offers the intimacy of getting to know the proprietor. Therefore the proprietor or manager is an important aspect of reviewing a B&B. The West End Inn is one of the best experiences I have had in some time. Victoria, the new...

We've stayed here before and really like it. Cozy, comfortable and well-appointed. Breakfast was delicious. We didn't realize there was a new owner before we made our reservations but were delighted by the same level of care and hospitality as our previous visit.

We had the most wonderful stay at the West End Inn. The staff were incredibly welcoming and warm. Our king size bed was so luxurious. And finally, the breakfast was to die for; The fruit plate was so delicately put together with dashes of lime zest and mint. We can't wait to visit again!
