The room was at the top of a staircase that only allows for one person at a time to go up or down so there was always a wait line especially at the bottom which ran into the front door so there was always a pile up. The room, itself, was small with a jacuzzi in the back. The jacuzzi... More

Positives - darling location in the quaint town of Afton. Right on the marina, with great views of the boats coming in and out, as well as the Wisconsin River traffic. Walking distance to several cute independent restaurants. Bed was quite comfy. Cons - front doors lock at 9, when access to the rooms is via a very rickety, slanted... More

Scary place! The entrance has very dirty white wood work, the rug ruffled, we almost tripped. The windows all needed cleaning and our room's storm windows were hanging by a thread, not even latched. I was afraid for those seated at tables below in the out door bar area, which by the way was noisy until 1:25, when a couple... More

The Inn was in very bad shape with peeling paint and a deck overlooking the river you did not dare stand on. The shower did not work so we asked to use a different rooms shower. They said no. We knew they had empty rooms that were open with no guests. We tried to eat breakfast but they were out... More

Room 7 is so nice! Large & bright, yellow, huge double whirlpool, K bed, fireplace, your own private deck - even a mini frig! A great place to chill & reconnect. Had a delicious meal in their "formal" restaurant, with Steak Diane my favorite. Bfast buffet was very nice. Staff are friendly & helpful. Didn't get into the wine bar... More

My wife once told me she wanted to stay at a Bed and breakfast style inn. So for our 21st I chose the Afton House Inn. It had the feel of a small town inn with great service and hospitality. Was greeted with a friendly smile upon entry, easy check-in and overall awesome experience with the staff including the formal... More

We paid $180 for a room in the Afton Inn. Yes it had a gas fireplace (which had a gas leak and we had to turn off the pilot light) and a jetted tub (which hadn't been cleaned for quite some time) and we had a small deck outside our room (which faced the parking lot and had enough peeling... More

We chose to stay in one of the cheapest rooms. It was fine. There was enough room to walk around the bed and there was a wing chair in the room too. When the air conditioner clicked on it blew cold air right onto the bed. Brrr! We found that uncomfortable. Everything was clean. It was also quiet even though... More

The peeling paint on the exterior was the first bad sign. I should say that I've been a commercial real estate appraiser for many years and I have appraised many, many lodging facilities of all types. I understand that a historic hotel may not have the conveniences that we have come to expect in modern hotels. I expect narrow hallways... More
