This Inn is a private residence, you are renting a room out of the upstairs of someone's home. The surrounding properties are in poor repair, and had broken windows. The entrance to the property appeared to have no security and I felt unsafe. There was no additional interior lock on my room. There was no check in desk, or clear check in process. The owner entered my room with me and checked me in inside my rented room. The bedroom door windows were painted over. There was no air conditioning. The television only had a handful of working channels. The windows to my room were open when I arrived and the smell of cigarettes was wafting in. I left with irritated eyes and can only guess that my sheets were poorly cleaned prior to my stay.

It is not obvious from the description online that the hosts live in the house and rent out rooms for the night. If we had known this, we would not have selected this property for our stay. The row of shoes in the entryway should have alerted us to this fact, but it was only when dinner cooking smells and noise from the kitchen started drifting up to our room, that we realised this is a rented-room type setup, rather than a true "Inn" that values guests' privacy and rest. We had especially selected it for its purported upscale, picturesque nature, but were left disappointed given the lacklustre surroundings, high nightly rate, plus additional cost for a somewhat lacking breakfast we forked out. Note that there are no coffeemaker, water kettle, plateware or microwave facilities in the kitchenette area of the King room. Since the house borders on a very busy, noisy main road, there is no chance of enjoying the balcony peacefully. The hostess alerted us to the fact that they were preparing for a major event the following week and that there would be some noise that evening. We were fine with it initially, but by midnight the music was still blaring loudly with a full party going on downstairs. We felt cheated out of a good night's rest and left well before checkout time the next day. Although the hostess was very friendly and accommodating, we will be opting for a normal hotel stay on our next trip to Calgary.

Very beautiful home and very friendly hosts. You are welcomed, made to feel comfortable right away and ensure you have everything you need to settle in. Our bed was very comfortable, rooms are sound resistant and had no problem sleeping at all. Shower is nice with plenty of water flow. In the morning they cook a delicious breakfast and bring it to your room. Two issues we had were the bar sink had no cold water and the toilet felt loose on the floor when sat on.
