My husband I and I visited Staunton on our way up to Harpers Ferry. This was an excellent choice. The house is great and the owner David is very hospitable and knowledgable about the area. Our breakfast was great as well! We will be back.

An absolutely beautiful house with amazing woodwork. David is very nice and extremely helpful with his knowledge of the town. The breakfasts were totally delicious! The Inn is just outside of the bustle of town, but just just a short walk down a few blocks and you are in the heart of a beautiful historic town! I highly recommend the Olde Staunton Inn! I will definitely stay here again!

My husband and I just spent two nights at the Inn while in town on business. We loved how quiet a location this is - very conducive to sleeping well! Comfortable bed, great homemade breakfast (we were thankful for the stairs up to our room to help burn off some calories!) every morning, and David, the Innkeeper was very helpful for things to do and restaurants to go to. We'd highly recommend!

We were only in town for the night and the Inn worked out great. We were in the king room on the 3rd floor, which was a bit of a hassle for dragging bags up narrow stairs. The bed was fairly comfortable and I enjoyed the claw-foot tub in the bathroom. There was a bit of a musty smell to the room and it one point it began to smell like sauerkraut(maybe someone was cooking? I don't know). Overall, however, we had a great experience. The host is kind and helpful and was happy to make some suggestions for activities in Staunton. The breakfast was delicious with multiple options for all kinds of breakfast eaters.

Room Tip: King room is on the top level...lots of stairs.

Pros - a little out of town, about a 5 minute walk, which was enjoyable to see the homes along the way. Nice big room, comfortable king bed. Wi-fi. Overhead fan. Wide chair for two w/ottoman. Great reading lamp near the chair (always one of my pet peeves if reading light is not good). Modern bathroom w/jacuzzi tub, lots of hat water, nice towels Great breakfasts different entree and homebaked goodies each day - scrambled eggs and sausage patties with homemade raisin bran muffins the first morning, turkey & broccoli quiche and banana bread the second and spinach & mushroom quiche and cranberry scones the third. Also frest fruit, applesauce, yogurt, juice and coffee.
Cons - No information about where bedrooms were located on website and we wanted a king bed so were on the third floor - two sets of long steps from the side walk to the front porch and then three sets to the bedroom (one very narrow). Hard to navigate - anyone with mobility problems will not be able to get to the front door. Musty downstairs in parlor and run down outside - porch needed painting. No individual room control for A/C. Tiny soaps and wrapped thin plastic glasses like the Holiday Inn. I usually look forward to the great toilet products when we stay in a B&B. Uneven shower pressure.

Room Tip: All rooms require climbing at least two sets of stairs as well as the two sets up to the porch.

The Olde Staunton Inn reflects the character of Staunton; charming, quiet and full of nice people. We arrived late in the afternoon and the host, David, had gone out to run an errand, but left us a welcome note on the door telling us where to find our room, keys and towels.

The room was great, with a very authentic décor. The brass bedstead was a particular highlight, though a little short for anyone above 6'2" (like my boyfriend, with whom I was staying). We shared a very clean and spacious bathroom with one other room.

Breakfast was very good, with all guests sharing a large table. Mango, strawberry, home-grown tomatoes, English muffins and home-made quiche (?!), all of which were delicious, made for a hearty breakfast before a long day of hiking in the Shenandoah Valley.

David was also very helpful when our hostel plans for the following night fell through. All in all, a very nice stay in charming surroundings.

This is the second summer – mid-August – that I have spent at the charming and cozy Olde Staunton Inn in Staunton, Virginia. I am a frequent participant at the Staunton Music Festival, now in its seventeenth season and one of the most ambitious, imaginatively programmed, and best well-kept secrets vis-à-vis music festivals in this country, and the Olde Staunton Inn is right in the center of picturesque Staunton and all of the musical, theatrical and artistic events that it has to offer. David Bottenfield, the innkeeper, is a gracious and generous host who personally oversees all of the details of this well-appointed and comfortable guesthouse. Breakfasts are a communal affair, so you get a chance to engage in lively conversation with guests from around the world. David not only introduces everyone but he provides a feast that varies from morning to morning that includes local fresh eggs and fruits along with homemade quiche and muffins and breads and unending pots of coffee and tea and fresh fruit juices. David also recommends local trips to caverns and wineries and various other tourist attractions. Each room is unique, beautifully decorated, clean, and with a private bath. Simply put: it feels like you are sharing your home away from home with very good friends.
