Reviewed 26 July 2012

The Shaker Inn is the most perfectly maintained, most clean and most comfortable of any motel we've ever stayed in. The owners obviously take a lot of care to make sure everything is perfect. It's a delight to stay there while visiting Lebanon.

Room Tip: We had little suite, and it suited our needs quite well.

Great value!! Very clean and well maintained. We came just for a local getaway and were pleasantly surprised. We will definitely be back! Walking distance to historic downtown Lebanon..lots of great shops and places to eat.

Family owned and operated for well over 30 years. The staff was very friendly, even offered pool towels at check-in. The room was nice and clean. The mattress and box springs were both enclosed in plastic zippered covers. We had the King Kitchenette (even though we didn't use the kitchen) with apt. size stove and oven, sink, small fridge and microwave. Free breakfast included coffee and bottled juices with pre-packaged pastries (muffins, donuts, etc.). Pool was very nice and well kept. Nice quiet place to stay that's reasonably priced.

We reserved two rooms and stayed for 2 nights for our trip to Kings Island. This is an older motel with a typical motel layout - linear with rooms facing the street. The rooms were on the small side, but adequate. Both rooms were non-smoking but the single room had that lingering smoke smell that hit you as soon as you opened the door. Certain features of the rooms had been updated, and they were very clean. It was extremely quiet, which was a plus. We stayed during the recent heat wave and the air conditioning worked extremely well. The pool is right out front and very nice and clean. The owners were very friendly. On the downside, we thought this would be within walking distance of downtown Lebanon, but it is not. However there is not problem parking anywhere. Many stores and restaurants are within a short drive. Very convenient to get to King's Island. I would recommend this as a very convenient place if you do not plan on spending a whole lot of time in the room.

This hotel is quite the find - the price is great and it is very clean. The rooms are typical hotel rooms with two beds but it is CLEAN! The beds are comfortable and it is quite. We stayed here the end of October. It is not hard to find and the owner and other employee we dealt with are friendly and helpful.

We stayed here in Nov.2011. If you are looking for a very clean and neat hotel with a private owner that cares about customer satisfaction this is a great choice. The rooms have a fresh smell and have been newly painted and decorated. We found our room to be excellent. You will find this clean and neatness through out the grounds, you will notice when it when you drive into the property.

We stayed at the Shaker Inn on October 15, 2011 while in town for a band contest...what a nice place. It's not fancy, but it's extremely clean and neat. The rooms are spacious enough, with a nice sized fridge in each one. There are not many extra's (ie: ironing board, hair dryer) in each room, but you can request them from the front office. There is a decent sized television, an old fashioned phone, and plenty of clean, large towels! The best thing about this motel though was that it was spotless! You could tell also that the rooms had recently been remodeled, and the price was definitely right! I would definitely stay there again. The staff was also very friendly.
