Entire staff showed kindness towards all guests. The perks of free parking, near transit, and a complimentary breakfast were great for a week long stay. We even used the laundry while relaxing poolside. Impressed with the detail of daily maintenance/cleaning of property. We even stayed in one of the original cottages - and will again unless we have the grandkids,... More

After reading all of the positive reviews and doing research on pet friendly hotels, we chose Old Town Inn. It was clean and a central location for our travel needs. The staff was friendly and our fur baby was comfortable. They also have a great breakfast. We highly recommend Old Town Inn and will choose them for our next visit.

Our room was small but very clean and smelled fresh. We were surprised that the non-smoking room we were put in was really non-smoking. Too many times we've been put in "non-smoking" rooms that wreaked of smoke. The staff was very professional and congenial.
