I had to give Abercrombie's Farrington Inn a poor rating for cleanliness because I found a rat scurrying through my room on the last night of my stay. The staff immediately moved me to a room in another building but I felt very uncomfortable staying in a place that had at least one rat on the premises.


I recommande to invest a little bit into bathroom.

the driving directions had me counting streetlights without naming street to be turned onto and i found this stressful for a first time visitor. once i arrived,parked, and was welcomed/settled in, i had nothing but positive experience. tree lined street, clean,comfortable room with windows that open, and a short 2 block walk to the bus. never used my car over the three days. i am certainly inclined to stay again, recommend to friends, and thank staff and owner for their efforts.

Very flexible regarding late and off-hours arrivals. Thank you.


The place is kind of old, with old furnishings. It was clean though.


Staff was responsive to maintenance request. But the maintenance request should not have been necessary. A window was left up abut 3 inches, weather at the time was single digits. Facility score is poor because the room never reached a comfortable temperature. I had to borrow a blanket from another bed in order to be warm while sleeping. Also, as a non smoker the smell of cigarets is offensive to me. There was a slight odor in the linen and bed, however, the hallway reeked of old cigarettes.

원래 도미터리를 예약했는데 5명이 함께 지낼수있는 아파트먼트로 바뀌어서 당황은 했지만 괜찮았어요. 근데 음.. 원래 도미터리는 어땠는지는 모르겠지만 아파트먼트는 라디에이터가 고장났는지 추웠어요.... 그래도 직원분들이 모두 친절하게 잘 해주셔서 둘쨋날에는 조금 나았어요. 난방은 항상 체크하시길..!
