Check in was terrible. Staff was nice but one person on. Sat in a chair for almost 25 minutes waiting for one couple to get through the process.

Dear Traveler, Oh my, that is far too long to wait. I am very sorry, as our front desk is almost always staffed with two people, sometimes more. We will research the date and any extraordinary occurences that might have happened on that day. I hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back and to demonstrate the front desk service our guests have come to expect and appreciate. Kind regards, David

Great place to stay!

Pros: Room was great! Studio style had all you needed for a great stay. Hot Tub and amenities were clean and well maintained. Great facility!
Cons: The 'beep' in the elevator as the elevator is very loud. I understand why it's there but could be turned down a notch or two!
Location: Nice walkway along the river. Locals restaurant was awesome! Mickey D's across the street. On a main connector to everything.
A great place to stay! Great guest experience and even if it was not the employees 'job' they had a 'can do' attitude and ensured warm hand off to someone who could help. Huge gratitude piece that made you feel valued, significant, and connected. Will stay again...

The heating in the room was not working adequately. The room was very hot even with no heat on. I appreciate it when a hotel has a variety of pillows - one big one and one thinner.

Dear Anonymous, Thank you for your review today; we will get right on the heating system maintenance records to identify any issues. If you felt it possible to communicate your room number, it would help us tremendously. Glad you liked your pillows! Often guests leave one with us to ensure they have what they need. Again, thank you for your review and we hope we can welcome you back again, to a room with perfect air! Kind regards, David

Very nice

We stayed at the Old House in May 2010 for 8 days. Having a washer and dryer in our room was very handy for the lengthy stay as well as the full kitchen. The room was beautiful. Perfect location...in walking distance to all amenities. Staff was very friendly. Highly recommended and we will be staying again. My only recommendation to the hotel would be to add more equipment in the gym!!

Lots of Potential; Disappointing

This lovely facility continues to have problems with its service offerings. High speed internet connectivity is frequently not available; front desk seems apathetic to this situation. It took the management over five years to purchase a caddy for luggage because the owners could not reach consensus on the style. Come prepared to serve yourself because no one offers to assist with luggage. When I asked for an ice bucket, there was only one available! These people really need to become more customer-focused before competitors sweep them off the map.
