This was a hard place to review, because of the extremes. The breakfasts were fantastic, served in a very pleasant room off the lobby. Not only are there all the hotel standards (yoghurt, granola, instant oatmeal, dry cereal, toast, bagels, coffee, juice, etc.), the cook came from the kitchen to take orders from each table for eggs any style, omelets (stuffed with a choice of cheese, onion, green chilies, red peppers, spinach, and mushrooms), pancakes, french toast, breakfast burritos (same choices of stuffings) and quesadillas (same choices), He then headed back to the kitchen to prepare the food to order. It was wonderful.
BUT - the picturesque buildings are very old and in need of repair. In fact, the excuse given when we asked about the lack of hot water in the bathroom wash basin was "the buildings are old". We got the same justification when we mentioned the dripping faucet in the kitchen sink. The living room blinds didn't close well and window ledges were covered in dust, probably because the windows didn't either. It appeared that, instead of repairs or remodeling over the years, occasional coats of paint were expected to suffice. "Dated" is a kind description of both the kitchen and the bathroom., though that ignores the tube mold.
On the other hand, the bed was quite good . We loved having a living room for our early riser in addition to the bedroom and kitchen, along with a tiny "office" space. The "bones" of the casita we were in were lovely - and would respond quite well to remodeling and refreshing. And the location almost adjacent to Old Town is perfect.
Would we go back, knowing what we know now? I can't decide about that, either.
