Reviewed 5 October 2013

We stayed at the main inn during our last visit and found it a little noisy (see previous review). We opted to stay at their sister building a few blocks up Broadway this time and had a very good experience. Our room was on the side of the building and had a shared balcony that was very comfortable. It overlooked the parking lot so the view wasn't much to rave about but it was a nice option to have during comfortable weather. 55 Broadway is also a little farther from the train line and traffic noise.

We had a two room suite with Victorian decor. The furniture appears to be relatively new and in good condition. It's generally comfortable and practical, whether you are staying one night or many. The TVs are all modern with one in the generous sitting room and another in the bed room. The bathroom, which is small, was recently renovated and everything functioned well. The room features a small fridge, microwave and Keurig coffee maker.

Wireless networking in both the main inn and 55 Broadway worked well and always reconnected without hassle. Wireless speeds were about 3MBps or just "OK". Your Netflix movies might sputter but, otherwise, it's fine for mail and web browsing. Cell phone coverage in Jim Thorpe is really challenged due to the steep valley. We could barely get an AT&T signal at 55 Broadway. Many of the other buildings in town have old tin decorative ceilings that totally block out wireless coverage (some of those ceilings have been covered over and aren't apparent until you see "no service" on your phone.

The only negative during this stay was the window air conditioner, which has seen better days and was very loud when it ran. It kept us up for multiple nights. I just don't understand inn keepers who spend thousands to renovate rooms and then don't give any thought to the comfort quality of their HVAC systems. The problem is all across the U.S., not just Jim Thorpe. If only the innkeepers would spend a night in each of their rooms. This would have been a 5 star review if only the management had spent $150 more to get a new AC unit.

We'll come back to this room but only during cooler weather.

Room Tip: There is no elevator in this building.

Hi, SearchLite! Thanks so much for writing such a nice review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay at 55 Broadway. I'm passing your comment about the air conditioner to our maintenance staff, who will take a look at the unit. I'm so sorry it was noisy, that's a drag. But hopefully they can fix it soon. We look forward to your return visit! Take care, and thanks again for writing.

My husband and I with our friends, Jackie & Bill Webb, stayed overnight at the Jim Thorpe Inn. Our room was very clean and queen size bed was very comfortable. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. We had a pleasant breakfast in their dining room and they also had a rustic pub. We spent some time during the evening on the front veranda enjoying the sites and sounds of Jim Thorpe!!! We will be sure to visit again!

The hotel was so charming, especially loved the balcony w the Norleans vibe. The room was a little on the small side but perfect for our needs. The breakfast voucher was an extra plus. Friendly staff, good service. No complaints, would definitely return in the future.

Thank you, we appreciate your nice review! Don't forget, we have 3 different room sizes/types: standard, deluxe and mini-suites. Next time, you may want to book one of our larger deluxe rooms, it's a lot more spacious. If you can come during the week, we have amazing mid-week deals, so you'll save quite a bit of money and get a huge room! Take care, and thanks again for writing. See you soon!

Just spent the weekend at The Inn. It was quaint and tastefully decorated, however it was dirty. The ceiling fan was thick with dust and the bathtub was grimy. I have the same textured fiberglass unit at home, so I know all it would take is a bit of bleach and a scrub brush to make it sparkle. I read the reviews before booking, as well as the snarky, arrogant responses from their Public Relations, so I expect to be chastised for not calling mgmt, but for almost $200/night, cleanliness should be expected. Prospective guests read reviews and the responsiveness of mgmt says a lot about how they can expect to be treated. Something to think about...

Room Tip: Bring ear plugs for loud church bells!

Hi, PA Traveler! Thanks for your comments and for bringing these items to our attention. We did receive your guest comment card that you filled out on our web site, but unfortunately you didn't mention your room number or date or date of stay, so we couldn't respond back to you. We've passed along your comments to our housekeeping staff. There's no excuse for a dusty ceiling fan. One of our shower stalls is actually getting replaced, because it's so stained, maybe it was the one in your room? In any regard, there's no excuse for not living up to your expectations. We do apologize and hope you give us another try!

This was our first time in Jim Thorpe, PA and the Inn was a lovely place to stay. We parked in a free adjacent lot after checking in, and we never got in our car until it was time to leave three days later. Everything we wanted to do was within walking distance. The quaintness of this Victorian town is wonderful. The Inn is historical yet up to date on amenities. There is a nice balcony on the third floor for all guests to relax and sit outside to look out at the town. We received vouchers for breakfast in the attached restaurant.

Great location (within easy walking distance of all of historic downtown Jim Thorpe), beautifully appointed historic inn, common open balcony porches with a New Orleans touch, free parking and wifi, breakfast and dinner vouchers to the adjoining restaurant make it a great value for the dollar, spacious and very clean rooms with lovely antique looking furniture. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend staying here.

We had a wonderful stay at the Inn...the rooms were splendidly decorated and so clean!
The bed was extremely comfortable, and the staff was exceptional! We stayed in a suite on the third floor overlooking the main street, we had the windows open and the street noise was minimal.
