10/10 Exceptional

Comfortable, pleasant inn
Lovely, quiet, comfortable old-fashioned inn in an excellent location (especially for people going to a Sea Dogs game). Decent light breakfast, very comfortable and attractive room. Wish the shower was a bit bigger. We'll definitely come back.

10/10 Exceptional

We loved the hotel
This was a great place to stay. We loved how unique it is. Staff was great. Room was clean and comfortable. Parking is a bit of a challenge. We got back to the hotel after a concert- 10pm there were no spots available. We finally found a spot on a nearby street and crossed our fingers. We didn’t get towed! Thankfully. We would stay here again for sure.
