“What a treat”
Reviewed 6 June 2008

My husband and I stayed here while driving cross country. It was one of my favorite hotel experiences ever.

We got a pampered package with champagne on arrival, had a huge room with a very comfortable bed, high ceilings and a bathroom with a jacuzzi tub. They recommended a romantic, delicious Italian restaurant for dinner. The next morning we had gourmet French toast in bed which was awesome.

Wonderful, friendly hosts who go way out of their way to make you feel comfortable and taken care of. We were so rested and satisfied when we left there in the morning.

It almost makes you want to have Alton as a destination...Highly recommend.

It's apparent that Jim and Sandy really go out of their way to make you feel at home in this wonderfully conserved Victorian style mansion. From the time they spend in decorating, furnishing and up keeping the place to the time they are willing to spend chatting with you about anything from the history of the house to the history of the town, it is evident that the Beall Mansion is not just a business for them, but more importantly, a passion. This transcends in every detail of the house.

We had a really good time there and look forward to staying at the Beall again.

It should also be noted that we stayed in the "Servants Quarters" which is the 'budget room'. Well worth the money spent. Just Beautiful. Comparable to many hotel rates and in some cases, cheaper.

We had a nice, quiet time here...very clean and charming. Hopefully, we will return! Would definitely recommend. The owners have done a terrific job restoring the place.

Very beautifully maintained home, and the owners are fabulous! We were treated well and had a comfortable and relaxing stay. My wife -- a couple thirty-somethings -- definitely recommend it!

The Beall mansion is amazing. It is an ideal place for getting away from everything and being pampered. The inside is beautifully decorated and full of plants that are thriving. The bed was luxurious, pillows were very nice, not the cheap rubbery ones. Comforters were feather comforters that felt comfortable and warm, and sheets were of high quality. Service was impeccable. Also, the advice about restaurants lead us to some surprisingly refined dining. We loved the fireplace and the whirlpool! It could hardly get better than this!

I forgot to mention their chocolates. Not some cheap chocolate candy!

The Beall Mansion is so beautiful. Jim and Sandy have worked hard to restore it to its original beauty yet update it with in-room jacuzzis and modern conveniences. It is everything that is advertised and more. All the rooms are beautiful so you can't go wrong. We stayed in the Senator Beall room and enjoyed a cozy fireplace, an amazingly comfortable bed and a heartshaped jacuzzi. I would suggest that you enjoy the many different rooms downstairs too to take in the whole experience. There are books and games to enjoy as you sip on a favorite hot drink or glass of your favorite beverage. Jim and Sandy are excellent hosts and have made this home a labor of love. Enjoy and appreciate.

I had the best stay ever. It is a beautiful home and because I was traveling alone I was reluctant to stay in a hotel. Staying in their home made me feel safe and welcomed. This is THE ONE!
