When I first got here and got my keys they didn't open up the hotel room so I had to run down the stairs and wait in a long line 3 times before I was given another room. Then the other room wasn't the same as the one I had requested so I had to go down and wait in line again keep in mind this was a 2 hour ordeal. This time I just asked for my money back as I was going to stay somewhere else, but they offered to upgrade me to the suite which I accepted. I got about 4 hours of sleep before someone decided to run a marathon in the room above me at 4am for 1 hour. Overall the worst experience I've had at a Hotel.

The property was beautiful and carried that historic charm! Although it was mentioned to be haunted, I did not experience any paranormal activity. Our original room’s shower was not turning hot and we mentioned it to the front desk. They came and tried to fix it right away. Unfortunately, it did not get fixed and we let them know. When we came back from lunch, they’ve upgraded us and gave us a bottle of wine which was a pleasant surprise. The rooms are clean and well kept. Of course it’s not in pristine condition as it’s a very old hotel but it was clean and well kept. I would stay here again.

The outside, lobby and the courtyard was very clean and appealing. The rooms were lack luster, and bland. The fireplace in our room didn’t work, and you are unable to take a bath in the bathtub (must be used in shower mode) which the water never got hot! We could hear EVERYTHING from the guests above us from the extremely creaky floor to the very creaky bed... which one of the nights they came back stomping around at 4:30-am. There were also guests smoking somewhere outside in the courtyard which blew right through our patio doors at 1am. We called the front desk who said they would have security walk around, they didn’t even apologize for any inconvenience! The restaurant/ bar there is closed because of covid, which would have been nice to know before booking. It doesn’t say that anywhere on their site. All other restaurants and bars are open in SD, it was very disappointing.
