This is a very special place! We received a warm welcome and the receptionist even helped us with unloading our luggage. We stayed in a corner room with two Queen beds. The room was large and had a very nicely appointed bathroom. Plenty of towels! The view was on the parking lot, but since we only stayed one night, it...

This hotel is absolutely amazing. The rooms are beautiful as well. Not much to do in the town, but what do you expect in a small town? There is a restaurant inside the hotel as well quiet a few restaurants in walking distance. The front desk lady, Kota was very polite and had a great smile. A little too pretty...

The hotel was built in the roaring 20s so its nearly a century old. It is well kept and recently renovated. Checking in is a little like stepping back in time, yes, they have computerized reservations but you receive an actual room key on a key ring. Here is where you will receive your ice upon request. The front desk...

If your looking for a nice place to stay that provides you a little "blast from the past", this would be the place. The hotel is quaint, clean and very much a period hotel. The staff was friendly, attentive and eager to please. We ate dinner in the hotel restaurant and like the hotel, the service was great and the...

This hotel claims to be on the National Geographic top 150 hotels. I have no idea how they can claim that. The room was tiny and overpriced. Our view outside was a brick wall. They claim to have luxurious accommodations, but the carpet was stained and filthy, the bedspread had holes and patches, and it was very unkempt. I almost...

We were driving from Nashville to Northern VA and looking for a hotel to break up the trip and luckily found this gem instead of settling on a boring chain hotel in Abingdon or Wytheville for the same price. We were pleasantly surprised by this nice, quiet, clean, historic hotel with a restaurant next door that had a bar with...

Very good location in the center of town. Nice clean rooms, may be a bit noisy in the hall. Parking and getting in and out are a bit of a pain if you have luggage. Overall a good experience and we would stay here again.

My husband is partially disabled from strokes and walks with some difficulty. I had called a few times prior to booking to ask about access to the building. I had some concerns because I learned there are steps no matter what entrance is used, but was assured there were railings at all stairs. Every person I spoke with on the...

My husband and I hail from Marion, MA, and when we drive to San Antonio for family get togethers twice yearly, we try to visit towns named Marion, and BTW, there are many towns so named. This small historic hotel with adjoining bistro is quiet, comfortable and affordable. Our "Junior Queen" room was tastefully appointed with custom draperies, large desk,...

Old hotel that has been redone. Room was clean and lovely even though a little small. An outstanding breakfast was included and the attendant was pleasant and actually made our waffles! Breakfast on Sunday mornings is "Pack and Go" because restaurant "Speakeasy" has a paid brunch open to the public. Hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful. Definitely plan on...
