Reviewed 9 July 2014

It was a great hotel and a wonderful bargain.
we will stay there again if we are ever in the area again. The staff was friendly and helpful and there was a doorman in a suit and tie to greet us as we came and went.
they even have bicycles to ride.

Have stayed in numerous hotels around the world and the Sewanee is the best experience ever. We were in awe of everything. We plan on making seasonal trips to the Inn purely for the experience. I know the Inn will be highly successful. Though not too, because I want to be able to get a room when we want too.

Very nice setting, extremely quiet with a very attentive staff. We visited our daughter for the 4th of July weekend and had a great experience. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a quiet weekend getaway in a fantastic location.

One of the nicest facilities I have stayed in anywhere. The common rooms, terraces, golf course views, and overall facilities are outstanding. We enjoyed walks down University Avenue and to the overlook, and our room had a balcony right on the 9th green. Wonderful stay.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first (of many, we hope) stay at the Sewanee Inn. Our room was lovely and thoughtfully outfitted with plenty of outlets, makeup mirror, comfy beds. The hotel decor is perfect - nostalgic, yet up to date. Staff was cheerful and breakfast excellent. If I had known how nice the weather would be, I would have upgraded myself to a balcony room. Next time!

Room Tip: For a lovely view, ask for the gold course side.

The King Suite w/wrap around balcony was really nice. Plenty of room for six people to visit. All rooms very spacious and well planned. Restaurant and bar service were enjoyable as well. We would recommend to friends!

My husband, baby, and I recently stayed at the new Sewanee Inn and had a fantastic experience. The new Inn is absolutely gorgeous. The entry way and public lounges are decorated perfectly. There is plenty of room outside to lounge in comfy chairs and enjoy a beautiful golf course view. The lobby has tasty refreshments available - make sure to taste the lavender hibiscus pink lemonade. The rooms are large and comfortable with the fluffiest towels. The bathrooms and wet bar area have gorgeous granite. Our room was a patio room opening out onto the golf course. There were rockers outside and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting out there in the evenings with a glass of wine. We visited over Father's Day and the staff left us a special treat to help him celebrate! I requested a crib for our baby and was delighted that they had a pack n'play that was brand new for her to use. The Inn also has bikes that guests can check out free of charge and I enjoyed a nostalgic ride through the campus of my Alma Mater on a starlit summer night. TIP: *A patio or balcony room is a must! The patio rooms open directly outside and you can easily walk around the grounds from your room. There aren't any king patio/balcony rooms (to my knowledge), so if you want one of these rooms you need to book a double queen. We will certainly be back to visit the Inn!!

Room Tip: Patio rooms open directly outside.
