Inn of Jefferson
Ranked #3 of 4 Hotels in Jefferson
Reviewed 12 January 2012

We have been staying here for at least nine years and we have seen management change hands several times. If we are only saying obe night, it is tolerable, but we both prefer to stay at one of the bed and breakfast inns closer in town. Be prepared to hear trains all night long! And, car noises and truck horns and highway noises, too! Our room this last stay was clean, except there were stains in the bathtub that really grossed me out! You might request a room in the back part of the hotel...we have usually stayed in the back, where there is generally just a little less noise. We slept in and missed breakfast by about five minutes and we were told that everything was put away already...five minutes...you would think they would be just a little more helpful and accomodating.

Room Tip: Call ahead and request a room in the back, off the street.

Thought we would save some time & stay in Jefferson for a Thanksgiving visit! Wrong decision-wrong place to stay!

We will never come back for another dose of this one!

We discovered mold in the room; dirty cabinets & tables in the "Continental Dining" area; food freshly purchased from the days old rack at a local grocery store; TV's that wouldn't operate with a remote. (It took them 24 hours & numerous calls to the desk & personal visits to the desk to get a TV working with a remote!)

The service at the desk from the "Owners" was argumentative, inattentive to the customer's needs & in general, no where near one half of one star rated!

Do yourself a favor & don't choose this one - - - no matter how cheap you travel. Money wasn't an object for us - - we just wanted a clean, guest friendly place to stay 4 nights in Jefferson, Texas. We checked out early & went to a hotel in Marshall for decent service & "received as advertised" lodging amenities.

I wish I had used a booking service on this one! Hopefully, the bad press I've now found on this place would have saved us the lodging nightmare.

Room Tip: Want a good room? Go someplace else!

I know I have seen a lot of bad reviews on this hotel. But you get what you pay for. I found the rooms spacious and clean. Bed was comfortable. I saw a lot of things that could be repaired. But it's an old hotel and if you want to save money I suggest this place

If we had viewed room beforehand - there is no way we would have stayed. However, contract states - "no refund after check-in". Carpet with ripples, sink with enamel cracked/stained, room needed paint and refurbishing. First thing we wanted to do was turn down sheets to inspect - which we did (no problems there). Family with "screaming children" checked in about 10:00 p.m and screamed till 11:30. Motel was disappointment of trip.

We come to a dirtbike race every April in Jefferson. The Inn at Jefferson is clean, reasonably priced and has a great breakfast buffet. This is not a fancy place, but it certainly suits our needs for this trip. The location is also excellent - right off the highway, close to everything in town, close to the race - fast food, gas stations right next door.

The pictures online lied big time. The rooms were musty and poorly kept. The curtains were stained and falling off. The room has not been deep cleaned in some time. To add insult to injury we found a previous guest's things in EVERY drawer. It is a less expensive place to stay but it was very loud off the highway and far away from the beautiful downtown. We checked out early and went to one of the many bed and breakfast places. Gross!

We stayed here because it was the only place under $100. The town is loaded with
B & Bs in the $150+ range. We were not planning on lingering the next morning, so a B&B was really out of the question. The Inn of Jefferson appears to be the only motel in town. It was pretty bad: dirty shower floor, rusted shower curtain rod, moldy shower curtain, opened toothpaste packet in amenities basket, toilet leaked, therefore tank refilled often, small sofa had stains on it, mirror smudged/streaked, freezer section of refrigerator so iced over couldn’t put anything in it. Would not recommend this motel to anyone.
