We stayed at the Fireside Inn in October 2016 and found the hotel very clean, beds very comfortable, and the staff very friendly. We stayed during peak leaf peep season and the prices were very reasonable compared to all other hotels.

Welcoming entry, well maintained - even w/all the snow, walkways clear of snow & ice. Cider scented air & basket of whoopie pies @ checkin were nice touches on frigid night. Our connecting rooms were well appointed & showed signs of recent changes in 1room while other was in transition yet still very pleasant. So glad hotel going w/flooring, not...

There are multiple sites for the Fireside Inn & Suites so be mindful of which one you used. I ended up paying double what they were posting for rates on their actual site and when I brought this to light to the employee at the front desk he didn't seem to care and pretty much told me too bad. I...

I am sorry you had a bad experience. I can understand and respect your frustration on the different price you may have paid for your room to a third party site. But that was an agreement between you and the third party. This was a price you agreed with the third party for a specific room type. The room type...

I stayed here for a conference and while the staff was super friendly, the hotel is very outdated. There was no thermostat in my room to help control the temperature and the wall heat unit did not offer one either.

This hotel is great. It is in a great location. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. The fireplace in the room was wonderful and relaxing. This is a great place to stay for only one night or even an extended stay.
