Cozy, Cute, Comfortable B&B
Garden Street Inn is a very cozy and cute bed-and-breakfast. The street is not too busy and easy to get to. We arrived late (around 10pm) and still got checked in quickly and easily (<5 minutes) and got into our room. The room was spacious, including a TV, fireplace, couches, coffee table, and our full-sized bed. The bed was so comfortable and we slept very well. The bathroom was clean and spacious. Overall, I highly recommend this place - only regret that we didn't get to try the breakfast since we woke up too late!

Really convenient location, nice intimate place. The only negative was outside their control - Saturday morning a commercial garbage truck was about a block away at 6 am doing a number of locations, which comes with being in such a convenient location to downtown. But I will go back again, the place is otherwise quiet in the morning so I did go back to sleep.
