My husband and I stayed in one of the riverview rooms for a birthday getaway and really enjoyed the location. It's in the middle of town, above the Troll Tavern and a couple other shops, and our room had a balcony looking out over the water. We felt like we picked just the right time to come - middle of...

This hotel represents one of the absolutes in traveling - location dictates many, if not most, things. This hotel is like the Times Square in New York City on New Years Eve - it's in the heart of the action! We stayed on a Sunday night, so we had the discount rate. Obviously, this same hotel on a Friday or...

This hotel is very outdated and our room and stairways had a bad odor, they finally spayed our room with something. The carpets were dirty, and one of the pillows was losing it's stuffing. We tried to enjoy the balcony we had overlooking the parking lot and view of the river,but no ceiling fan so it was hot and the...

We had a group of 3 couples and we all enjoyed our stay at this quaint inn. No elevator, but once you get to the top of the stairs and see how sweet the place is, it is a mute point. Clean rooms, friendly and helpful staff. We will definitely consider staying here again.

This hotel is probably the best location in town....right on Main Street, next to the river. You can get a room facing the river or a room facing Main Street. We got a room facing the street since it was winter and there's not any activity on the river. The room has a balcony overlooking the street, which was nice...
