Stay at this Hotel

This is one of the nicest small town, historic type hotels I have had the pleasure of staying in. It is also very fairly priced and the bakery next door is to die for! My husband and I wanted to move in!

The Carlton is a sight to see! I had no idea just how nice the hotel was until I stepped into the lobby. The rooms are elegant and spacious. Staff was friendly. Just a wonderful place to stay.
