We booked a suite, thus had 2 rooms, tv and fridge in the non-bed room. Rugs are traditional hotel rugs on concrete surface. The suites face the railroad tracks, so noisy during the day. Only real problem was lighting. The "living room" had only a single light, but a chair and a coach, so no good way for 2 readers...

We stayed just one night, arriving very late. There were some sketchy characters in the parking lot. Beds and furnishings were old. Reminded me of a Motel 6. Ok for just a few hours, but would not stay any longer than absolutely necessary.

I stayed in a suite for one night, and was really pleased with the room, customer service, and amenities (continental breakfast & business center). It was very quiet and the room was super clean. Great quality for your buck. For someone looking for a simple and very affordable place with light business needs.

Whatever you do, don't stay here...ever. It's awful. The place is ancient, in dire need of repair and a much-need upgrade upgrade, has mice, clogged sinks, poor lighting and an unhelpful staff. They're there (the staff), but do they really want to be there? I doubt it. Also, they supposedly have a free continental breakfast with rolls and coffee, fresh...

I was traveling for work and ended up staying here for a few weeks. The building has a rustic feel to it and reminds me of, well, a mansion. Haha. The rooms were fairly clean and well maintained. The staff was accommodating and even moved a mini-fridge into my room upon request. Jared -at the front desk- was great for...

We read unfavorable reviews on the Mansion View, but decided to take a chance anyway. It was the best location for us to stay for the Lincoln Memorial funeral re-enactment. We were within walking distance of everything we needed. We had a great King Suite with a whirlpool tub, complete with refrigerator. The room was a little outdated, but clean....

Upon arriving I arrived in reception and if you were travelling R66 and wanted a motel that bad stood still in time since the 1960's this was the one for you! The decor is so outdated and upon entering my room I was hit with a musty smell and decor that had not been updated in 40 years. The shower...

Altogether the Mansion View Inn was acceptable, but in many ways, but the burden of the years is clearly visible. The best is the location. Many sites are close (Dana House, State Mansion just opposite, Abraham Lincoln House etc.). The staff was friendly and helpful. It was OK for one night, but not more. Would only come back after a...
