On a tour so we did not select this place. All looked fine on arrival. The inn has a Halloween party that started from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. A private event we were told. Sounded like fun. Except it is now 4 in the morning and the drunken brawl has just subsided outside our room. Seriously there were fights with people being slammed against our door. All this was preceded by loud partying in the hallways and the patios beneath our room, lots of people running up and down stairs and hallways and so many doors being slammed constantly. Called the front desk at 4 in the morning and of course no answer as they(one?) was likely trying to do damage control.
The take away from all this is know what you are getting into on a halloween night. This event got away from the staff. Our travel leader sure did not know or even think about this situation when she booked this place. Truly a night from hell. And after looking at reviews on Trip Advisor, there are better places to stay. We rate this as a do not stay because we did not get what we paid for - a peaceful night of rest. Curious to hear what front desk will say when we check out. We will let you know.
