“Absolutely Wonderful!”
Reviewed 15 April 2013

We had a perfect stay at the Lafayette Inn! We stayed in Room #1 which is cozy, quiet and very spacious. It has it's own private entrance which made it easy to come and go with our little dog. The grounds are gorgeous and immaculate and just one block from Lafayette College in a lovely part of Easton. The breakfast was so delicious...fresh hot Belgian Waffles made to order, homemade granola, fresh fruits...so many things to choose from! So nice to be able to have such a beautiful place to stay and be allowed to bring our pup along with us as well. We highly recommend the Lafayette Inn to anyone visiting Easton! Can't wait to go back...

We travel often, and rarely is there a place that is such a wonderful combination of comfort, privacy, luxury and simplicity. I have told both my husband and son that if I ever run away from home, they should look for me at The Laf Inn. Especially since we can bring our pooch! This is the very best extra ever! Looking forward to an excuse to come back soon and thank you for creating such a lovely, lovely space.

This inn is reliably welcoming and comfortable, with a truly wonderful breakfast. The building itself is beautiful inside and out, Room 3 is cozy and quiet, and the living room is comfortable. Wonderful place to stay.

This Inn was perfect for our family - the breakfast in the morning was excellent and the staff were extremely friendly. We had a great room with a sun room which made sleeping arrangements perfect for us and our son. The Inn staff were very knowledgeable and helped us find some great spots - including a farm to visit and Megs and Mads - an amazing restaurant.

The Lafayette Inn in Easton, PA (just a block or so from Lafayette College) is a lovely B & B. A former frat house for the college (and then left abandoned for ten years), the large brick home underwent a $750,000 renovation in the mid-80's, and still looks beautiful today. The owners and staff were very friendly and very accommodating. They answered questions about the area for us, and even put additional information under our door. Breakfasts were delicious and a wide variety of foods were offered each morning. Coffee, tea, and sodas were available all day, along with scrumptious home-baked cookies. Our room was very comfortable. Robes were provided, and there was TV/Cable and free internet. The 18-room inn is a short, easy drive from the center of downtown Easton. Just a lovely place with pretty grounds, a large parking lot, nice gardens, and a welcoming entrance! I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 25, which faced the front of the inn. Since the inn is located on the corner of a...

-and you pay for it. To be fair, the couple who own the Inn are lovely and friendly, the food is delicious and the service is very good. To be honest to those on Trip Advisor who have been honest with me and who (like me) count on objective reports, the Inn is definitely showing its age. The rooms are small and cramped, the floors are creaky, the cleanliness is so-so (the amount of dust build-up in the bathroom's hairdryer was positively gross). The fan for the shower was embarrassingly loud--I didn't want to run it for fear of waking other patrons. Definitely not a $250/night establishment.

LafayinnBB, Owner at The Lafayette Inn, responded to this review, 28 August 2012
Thank you for taking the time to write a review and for providing your honest assessment of your stay with us. We appreciate your comments about our service and food; these are definitely areas we focus on and feel are our real strengths. We take great pride in our cleanliness and have had good feedback about it, however, any lapse in housekeeping is of course inexcusable and we will immediately address the specific items you have mentioned.

They say you can't be all things to all people and we agree. Most of our rooms are designed for double occupancy, but we do have several rooms where a third or fourth person can also be accommodated. If you were a large family sharing one room, we understand why you may have been disappointed in the amount of floor space. We focus on providing great service, an all-inclusive price (full homemade breakfast, Wi-Fi, bottled water, afternoon snacks) in a beautiful, convenient location within the constraints of an historic Georgian mansion. Our room rates start at just $125.
