My husband and I have stayed at several Historic Hotels of America. We booked a room at the General Morgan Inn expecting it to live up to other historic hotels we have visited. However, we were a bit disappointed. When you first enter the hotel, the lobby is impressive and staff were sufficiently polite. However, on closer inspection and in the breakfast room you begin to notice that things are a little less impressive. My husband and I couldn't get over the spines ripped from books and glued to the wall in an attempt to portray a library. When we got to our floor the carpet in the hallway was extremely dirty, and although the hotel has a large patio that I'm sure they use for weddings and events, there were no tables and chairs provided for guests to sit and enjoy which would have been nice. Our room was an adequate size, with nice details like a fireplace and large windows. The bathroom was updated with nice granite countertops and fluffy towels. Our biggest complaint was the bed. The mattress was hard and the linens were very thin and cheap. There was little to no mattress pad and you could see through the sheets. In addition, the comforter was stained and dingy with some rips in it. Mostly we had difficulty sleeping on the uncomfortable mattress. I've stayed at a lot of hotels and this bed was what I would anticipate at a one-star budget motel and I'm really not a 'Princess and the Pea' kind of girl. The air conditioning worked well, but is extremely loud, so if you're a light sleeper you may want to be prepared for that. The General Morgan Inn includes a continental breakfast in the room price. There are very limited choices provided and the danishes and bagels looked straight out of the supermarket packaging. They did have a wafflemaker which was fine. Like the mattress, I felt that breakfast was on par with any budget level hotel, just not what I expected from an HHA. My husband and I didn't eat in the restaurant because we were afraid it wouldn't live up to its fairly expensive prices based on our experience with the breakfast. The area where the General Morgan Inn is located is nice and well-kept and there were some nice historic buildings nearby. Overall, it was okay, but not worth a trip back.
