First time at a B&B. Welcoming atmosphere. Great location. Quiet & comfortable. Fulfilled my expectations 100 percent!

My husband and I recently celebrated our sixth anniversary at Jones&Jones. This quiet little retreat was exactly what we were looking for to isolate ourselves from the outside world for a little while. When I booked the room, I was looking for the uniqueness of a bed and breakfast, but I knew my husband would not enjoy a stay where several new people were imposed upon him. When we arrived, we met the owner who talked with us a bit about this and that. He showed us the rooms and then left us to ourselves, exactly what we were looking for. We have a three and a half year old - quiet time is precious! The location of Jones&Jones is perhaps the best value! They are located right on the main street of town and several restaurants, shops, and sites to see are within walking distance. We drove to Nagoya Steakhouse in Levi Commons, which was just minutes away. The breakfast part of Jones&Jones is not your traditional bed-and-breakfast-style breakfast. The owners stock a minifridge with greek yogurt, fresh fruit, and juices as well as some homemade sweet bread and some cookies that I am officially addicted to! We also had coffee, tea, hot chocolate, popcorn, and oatmeal, among other things. It was just perfect for the two of us!

We did not see the owners of this establishment after we checked in and handed them our check for a two room, five night stay. Our breakfast consisted of small boxes of cereal, a few juices in the frig and one container of outdated yogurt (for the entire stay). Our linens were never changed and paper baskets never emptied. There is no standup shower and the bathroom is shared with 3 rooms. We had to checkout on our cell phone on their answering machine. If you want to stay at a real bed and breakfast stay next door at the Guesthouse.
Since we do not visit this site frequently we were astounded to see the review that was posted. When this reservation was made the party indicated that they were coming into town to attend a funeral and that it was of some financial burden to the family. They asked if we could reduce the advertized rate. We felt very compassionate toward a family that is going through such a stressful and sensitive situation. We offered them a rate that did not include breakfast and they were very satisfied with that proposition. That is one way that we feel comfortable lowering the advertized rates. There is a small cafe across the street and we do have a refrigerator, coffee maker and oven and microwave to be used if a guest wants to provide their own food. We had just left the boxed cereals and miscellaneous that were already there. We did not provide our normal breakfast since it was agreed that we would not in order to save the guest financially. We also do not change linens unless a guests requests us to do so unless they are staying for a week. In that case we change sheets half way through. Most of the large hotels have the same policy. We also only book one guest or family at a time so the bathroom is shared with only the one party. No strangers. Since the shop below the B&B is open for regular hours we were readily available. We also leave our home phone number in case there is a problem on site. Most of our guests enjoy the privacy that we provide. Many of our guest love the conversations that we gladly participate in. We like to communicate. We would have loved to have talked with this party and feel that we were accessible. We have had the B&B now for over five years and this is the only comment that we have ever received that was negative.
