This was a dirty, nasty place. If you are looking for a romantic weekend this is not the place. I realize it’s an old hotel but, REALLY? The Carpet was filthy, the toilet barely worked. No hotel staff after 9pm. Not a place to go.

Once used as a warehouse ...More to store cotton, this lovely building changed hands numerous times. At the turn of the twentieth century it was transformed into a hotel and has served as a haven for weary travelers since that time. Less
