Gorgeous, tastefully decorated room with spacious and updated bathroom. Loved the shampoos, towels and special amenities. The hosts were gracious and fun to talk to. The grounds are beautiful and we plan to visit again this Summer.
The breakfast area is comfortable and inviting - the breakfast was fabulous!!! There are numerous choices and all are delicious.
This B&B is A++++

We stayed at the Lafayette Inn this pasted Saturday. It is a wonderful inn. The owners are gracious and very accommodating. Breakfast was very good and the room was extremely clean. We highly recommend it. Also, the inn is within walking distance to everything in town. Look forward to a return stay.

This is an overall decent place for the area. My girlfriend and I were very disappointed with our room. It was one of their Premium rooms. They just handed me the keys without even offering to show me to the room or help with luggage. We were never introduced to the Inn keepers, they didn't even introduce there selves at breakfast just plain rude. It was down the maids stairs in the basement of the house(very premium). You have to walk down into this poorly lit hallway and pass the laundry room. It just felt really awkward like we shouldn't even be in that part of the house. No where on the web site do they mention this, it appears as a ground level room. Allready running a little late for our dinner reservations we just went out for the night. Then we get back to attempt to enjoy this $250 dollar room. There was a jacuzzi garden tub in the bathroom. When I went to turn on the hot water the handle fell right off into my hand! Then I try to close the drain and this also came off. The towel ring also came off of the wall when I went to dry my hands. The room also had no circulation and was extremely damp, it smelled like an unfinished basement. After returning home early from the rest of out Holiday in PA due to health reasons I to my time to write the Inn about these concerns that I did not have time to confront upon checking out. Such as the cost V.S quality. They just replied with a generic "thanks for you time" letter no form of resolution. To say the least I was shocked that a B&B which strive on customer service would just blow off a concerned patron in such impersonal way. Leaving you fair warning about the lack of customer service at the Lafayette Inn.

P.S Breakfast there is also a limited menu not very creative and you eat in a really small sun porch with enough seating for 1/2 of there guests you may end up standing there waiting to eat.

The room reviewed here has a private entrance with small patio. It can also be reached from inside the inn by going down stairs from the common area. The room has an independent, guest controlled heating and air conditioning system as well as an operable window. We have inspected the tub handle and drain and all towel bars; all are in working order. We pride ourselves on providing friendly service while also respecting guests' desire for privacy. The innkeepers/owners or a dedicated staff member are available 24 hours a day to assist guests. We are very sorry that a guest had a less then perfect experience and we are disappointed that we were not given the opportunity to address their concerns during the stay.

We stayed 3 nights at the Lafayette Inn. It is really lovely and the owners are gracious. Breakfast was very good and the room was extremely clean. We highly recommend it. Also, an excellent restaurant in walking distance is Ye Olde Sea Haag, for great seafood.

Given the other choices in the city of Easton, this one is a no-brainer. The room was medium-sized with a comfortable bed and quaint Victorian decoration. The bathroom similar. We stayed on Thurs night when it seemed that we were the only people present and enjoyed breakfast in the morning by ourselves. Restricted eaters take note - you have somewhat limited choices for breakfast (Atkins and Vegans may not find something to their liking)

We also stayed Fri night when it was much busier and somewhat noisy at a later hour, although not unbearable. The parking lot was almost full and in the morning we had to wait for an open breakfast table.

There is a house dog, so if your allergic or hate a dog standing by your breakfast table this is not for you. Otherwise a nice alternative to the Holiday Inn and similarly priced.
