The Bad
Negative comments were few and far between in the reviews read for this report. Most of them were isolated in nature, but one theme rose up.

This theme surrounded the breakfast for those guests who just felt it was too minimal because eggs, other protein choices and cereal were not offered. Some guests felt that it was just too sweet and too boring after the third day at the inn.

Isolated complaints included: no coffeemaker in the room, dim lighting next to the beds not enough for reading, a bathroom smelled stale, hilly area made it difficult to walk back to the hotel, steep stairs and no elevator.
