My husband and I stayed at the Governor's Inn because it was at the top of the list of accommodations for a wedding we were attending. There's a lot to like about the Inn, including free valet parking, pleasant and flexible staff, a great location downtown, a fabulous cocktail hour, and a well-appointed lobby.
Our guest room left a bit to be desired, though. We stayed in a standard king room that didn't have any natural light. Our window was coated in a black privacy film and looked out onto the relatively dark interior hallway. It was tough to tell whether it was AM or PM, which didn't help us with our jet lag.
The mattress on the bed was awful - overly soft and sagging in the middle. We felt like our feet were higher than our head and we kept rolling toward the middle. The corners of the bottom sheet kept coming off the mattress during the night. Because of this, neither of us slept well during our 3-night stay.
The bathroom was clean and servicable but plain - some fixtures had been updated but there was still some mismatched tile in the shower. The towels were soft and of good quality.
Note that there wasn't an iron or ironing board in the room - you have to get one from the front desk and the board is one of those tabletop types - not the easiest to use.
Because we were there for a wedding with a bunch of friends, we were able to visit some of the other rooms and they were not all created equal. Our friend's standard king (2 doors down) came with a coffee maker, ours did not, but we had nicer chairs. His mattress was equally soft and saggy, but another friend had a brand new, firm mattress. The take-home message is that if you're not happy with the room you're given, ask to change.
