We really enjoyed our one night stay at this B&B. The mansion is old, but we enjoyed the staying in a place with such character. Alfred, the owner was very helpfull and friendly and the breakfast he cooked was wonderful. This property is also in a great location. You can walk to downtown for dinner or shopping.

The architecture of this old mansion was worth the trip. Small public rooms with fireplaces and a wealth of authentic period furniture. It was hard not to daydream about what it must have been like to live in this beautiful place at the turn of the century. As others have said, it squeaks, it creaks and everything is not level....

My husband and I stayed at the Power's Mansion for an early Valentine's date. We had a great time and would recommend it to anyone. The mansion is 134 years old so as long as you know that going in, then you will have a great time. Anything that old is going to have a few issues! We do feel... More

I bought this visit on Travelzoo. I was there only a few hours and decided to leave. The place was old, hot, rundown and plants were overrun. Could not find the front of the building to enter. Tried calling, emailing and texting after I left and no one ever responded to me. I only received half my money back from... More

We came to Auburn over the holidays. We had stayed at modern, sterile hotels before and wanted something different, something with character. A relative suggested the Power's Mansion Inn. What a gem! It isn't everyday you get to stay in a house over 100 years old. The original Victorian decor has been preserved, but modern amenities like wi-fi are not... More

It was such a trauma just trying to find the front entrance that I was pretty frustrated from the get-go. Signage, people, signage!! We had a room in the extension, which was "okay", but needs a good revamp. Big old television, fake flowers/plants galore, very poor mattress. Old, peeling, wallpaper....you get the picture. I had a dozen ideas to spruce... More

I really enjoyed our gathering in the Power's Mansion Inn. As we walked from the car, the wafting aroma of Tri-tip carried us to the entry and into the parlor. The buffet style dinner was wonderful. We had a choice of marinated salmon or tri-tip. I can't speak about the salmon, but the beef was cooked medium rare in an... More

I like to write reviews when I'm excited and happy, I'm a little sad to admit that many reviewers are right, Power's is just run down, and could use some help. I used a Groupon to stay here, and I'm really glad I did, because if I paid regular price for this place, I would have been very dissapointed, I... More

Our visit to Power's Mansion Inn started in the first floor Victorian era sitting room with complementary craft brews and appetizers. We would have had dinner at the Power's Club Irish bar and restaurant, but that evening they were hosting a large private party, so the Power's Inn is also a venue for meetings and weddings, as well as High...
