Anderson House is not your typical hotel, so uniqueness includes creaky, uneven floors, tiny bathrooms, steep stairway. All part of this beautiful old building. Each room (we looked in open doors!) is decorated differently. So cute. One couple in our party had the larger corner room with curved windows overlooking the street. Very neat! Breakfast was fresh, homemade, and yummy. Gift shop is nice.

The bath room was small but that's what you get with a house that's 144 years old. The people at the front desk were welcoming and helpful. We were given suggestions on what to see and what to do. It was great to be within walking distance of the downtown attractions. The breakfast in the morning was excellent.

Great historic property! The staff is very pleasant and helpful! Breakfast was wonderful!!! It is a bit like a large bed and breakfast. Lovely!
Be sure to ask to tour the rooms which are open when you check in. Each room is different.
We traveled with our 12 year old son. Great stay!

We booked room 3 sight unseen while on a road trip. "Historic and authentic" in a town with the same credentials sounded good. But this place is in need of some serious TLC. I understand that running an old hotel full of old fixtures and furniture is expensive in both time and money, but certain details need immediate attention at this place. I walked around to look at other rooms, and saw that the sinks in a few have been upgraded. But room 3 has a decrepit tiny sink that is child height and pops and gurgles after turning off the taps. Come on- that's just too skeevy. Room 3 also needs a decent lamp: the tiny pull-chain lamp by the bed is a fire hazard with its old brittle paper shade. There's a hole under one of the windows and flaking rust on the exposed pipes. The room was cold with no means of adjusting the temperature, and on our second afternoon there was a stink coming from the hallway. Come on - that's uncomfortable to say the least. Breakfast was late- we and a few others waited outside until the doors were unlocked to let us into the dining areas. Come on - that's cold and unwelcoming. The breakfast frittata was mostly potatoes, the strawberries were not washed, and the flowers on the tables were wilted and old. This place needs a critical eye and an energetic manager to give its guests a warm, pleasant, comfortable, fresh experience. We've stayed in "historic and authentic" old hotels in other lovely old towns, and some have been far from fancy. Although we didn't expect luxury, and although we booked the room hurriedly and without seeing it ahead of time, we were disappointed in the lack of attention to details here and cannot recommend it to other travelers.

This is a well maintained hotel from the 1890's! Just a short block from the Mississippi River with a scenic river walk. Room 11 was small but well equipped. Price great. Breakfast was creative and better than average breakfast included fare. Rooms are lovely with beautiful period wallpapers, furniture and chandeliers.
