We have stayed here before because they do allow dogs. It is a quaint place right in town across from good shopping and dining options. Unfortunately, the last time that we stayed there was no wifi in the room, even though it is supposed to be offered. We needed the wifi to be able to work part time remotely during our stay. We spent a good hour trying to connect and had to call twice. The second time that we called, the owners had already left the premises (around 5:30 pm) so they had to come back and we had to wait some more. We then had to switch to a smaller room just because wifi could not be reached in our original room. It was a rough start to our trip and took up a fair amount of time that could've been spent doing something (anything) else.
For a college dark tourism trip, I stayed at this hotel for a class experience. I had read the reviews and they were not very good. I’d like to write the truth. This hotel is unique in the sense it keeps with the original theme of when it opened many years ago. It even has some of the original gas lamps, and the 2 push buttons to turn the room lights on. The sheets are not thread bare, they were fine! The room was very clean, not a stray hair to be found. I worked housekeeping myself at an Inn this year, so I can verify it really is clean. Although the mattress was bouncy, it was comfortable. Soap, shampoo & conditioner are provided, and a blow dryer. Someone wrote the WiFi only works in the lobby, that is not true, I got it on the 3rd floor and streamed Netflix on my kindle just fine. The owners are very nice and I think they enjoy telling the history of the Inn.
Couple things you should know before booking during off season, and year round. It’s a trucking route, bring ear plugs and you’ll sleep better for it. I always travel with them anyway, so jake braking wasn’t an issue for me. ALL the restaurants are closed on Tuesday (not sure if it’s a year round thing, call ahead and check). You can either get pizza at the gas station across the street, or drive 25 minutes one way to eat out. To end this, I will say I found it very amusing watching my classmates afraid of ghosts & seeing shadows. I enjoyed the stay. I heard someone moving things around in the room next to me when I woke up, normal noises you hear when people are getting ready in the morning. Before I checked out, the room next to me had a padlock on the outside of the door. The owners have not arrived yet for work. I’m not a believer in the paranormal but the noise is unexplained ;-)
I called to check in and had booked for the wrong month. I called Expedia and everything got fixed right away. Thank you! Clean comfortable rooms, extra pillows in the drawer. Very charming and with the price. Enjoy the fact that there are no TV's in the room.
This is a lovely little hotel. The rooms are a bit smaller as they've kept the building close to original as is possible but allowing for a private bathroom in each. The bathrooms are roomy, no tub just a shower.
There is wifi, but no tv in the rooms (there is one in the main "lobby").
The bed and linens were clean, fresh and comfortable. The room and hotel were both spotless.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay again if we were in the area.
We called the Herbert to see if it was available for one night. We were told it had a two night minimum but that "one night was better than no nights" so it would accept our reservation. We took a room. We went to the hotel and were sorely disappointed in its condition. Generally speaking, the rooms need some TLC. The hotel is in need of upgrades. One could see why it said it would accept one night, it appeared to be mostly empty the night we were there. And, it charged us for two nights and then denied that it had agreed to one night.
