In a word: THREADBARE. No evidence this hotel was restored in 07 as web indicates. Locals recommend hotel but I have a feeling they do this based on mis-perceived quality, perhaps romantic/nostalgic view. Completely mis-guided as there is nothing but the location making this near a 5 star property. Room lighting is terrible. Furniture, carpeting, bathroom fixtures, telephones, are old/worn. Breakfast cafe: chairs are stained, paper napkins not cloth, very outdated from shag carpeting to the overall fixtures. Property is in serious need of capital reconstruction.
Only reason to recommend this hotel is location, otherwise no reason to stay here. Certainly overpriced for the low grade quality of the property itself. Level of service: 3 star at best from cafe to reception.
