Vinchester Inn in Hermann

I have mixed thoughts on the Vin. We stayed here years ago and things were a bit different this time. We had no human contact with the staff. Codes for doors and instructions were texted and emailed and everywhere they had cameras watching. Maybe it was covid aftereffects. Who knows. It just felt like some sci-fi movie or something.
Now, if you're good with that, you'll like it. First off, for Hermann, it's inexpensive. It's close to everything in the downtown district. The rooms have comfy mattresses and Keurig coffee makers. There's a secure bike storage room with a different code for entering. The lobby has filtered water and nugget ice. It's rather quaint. They even have actual keys for the rooms.

I stayed there in September 2021 and did interact with staff checking in and storing my bike. Enjoyed my stay and although I’m not high maintenance I do expect things to be nice, taken care of and updated….this is why I choose nicer places to stay and pay more for that. Maybe I actually am high maintenance because on my six day cross state ride I credit card camped, but I had clean clothes, body, no ticks/mosquito bites and good rest. I would stay there again. From the previous response I recalled that this hotel also markets itself as an AirBnB and perhaps that business model is what they prefer…..I suspect this is actually the owners “small business” and maybe they need personal time since they are always at work (assuming they stay on site or nearby)

Hmmm, we have had the "no human" treatment at several places. Trying to think which we like best. I'd say we definitely prefer it to some of the errr clingier hosts. But too many cameras can definitely give one the heebie jeebies. Thanks for the info!!
