“Comfortable but”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

I say this with full knowledge that it could have just been the room we picked. We wanted a back room to insure we didn't hear street traffic in the AM. The room was a great size with plenty of draw space, the bed was an old-fashioned high bed of amble size, the TV worked well but is placed on a low table and was not viewable from a reclining position. The bathroom contained the necessities but there was no space to lay anything down and the shower was about the size of a telephone booth. There were none of the usual amenities you expect in a hotel/motel, so remember to pack your hairdryer. The hallways and stairwell are dimly lit, which can prove a problem for those with vision problems.

On the bright side, the staff was friendly. The coffee was ready before 8:AM and came with danish or an english muffin and a bright smile.

I would stay there again and probably would find the stay more enjoyable, now that I know what to expect.

Stayed overnight with my boyfriend. The room was nice enough; clean, comfortable bed. I don't know if they have issues with the pipes, or the house was just settling, but it seemed like every 30 minutes we heard clanging/banging sounds coming from the walls. Really jarring when you're trying to sleep. We were told that in the morning they offer a continental breakfast from 8-10am. We went downstairs at 8:30, and no one was there. No breakfast. There wasn't even someone around to check us out; we just left the key on a table by the door and left.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2011

Our family had a birthday dinner for my wife's 81 yr old grandmother. It was a party of 8.
This was one of the worst restaraunt experiences we have ever had.
The appetizers arrived and were cold. Dinner was not served until 2 hours after it was ordered. When it did arrive only half of eight entrée’s were delivered, without any explanation. 15 minutes later the other four entrées were served and two of those entrées had problems. The spare ribs that my 11 year old niece had ordered were actually frozen in the middle, another of the entrées was salmon that still had the skin attached and was cooked on the outside only. The entire middle of this fish was raw. This was brought to the attention of the waitress and removed from bill. These two individuals did not eat a meal this evening. We asked to see management and were refused for 30 minutes. Finally, my mother-in-law went and found the manager / owner and brought her to the table. We explained all of our grievances and were told by Patty, the owner that she would bring the chef out to talk with us. No apologies, no concern, and no sympathy. After waiting for another 30 minutes, no one came to help or talk with us again, so we just left. I would stay away from this place if possible.
We did not spend the night just dinner.

We traveled to Douglassville for a party and stayed here for the evening. This place was amazing!!!. First off, the pictures don't do it justice. It is way more charming in person and cozier than you could imagine. Special thanks to Janet and Tonya for taking care of all of our needs during our stay. If I'm ever in a 50 mile radius of this place, I'm staying here!! Did I mention the food...Restaurant puts out an amazing spread. Kudos to the staff and management for a great weekend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back...the traffic
