Went on the Fajita/Margarita cruise (found it on Groupon) not knowing what all to expect being the description was vague. The boat looked gorgeous on the outside but the inside was dirty with dead mosquitoes in the windowsill by our table seats. The upper deck was soaking wet and the chairs were stacked and dirty. We went to our table... More

Beautiful hotel, very pleasant staff. This was a gift from our children for our anniversary, I would recommend it to anyone! The views were beautiful from our balcony, the bed was very comfortable. Dinner at the restaurant was out of this world! The Baseball steak was amazing. The breakfast the next morning was very good, and a wide variety, I... More

Our room was visually appealing, but the hot tub was so squishy that my husband and I (not huge people) could barely fit together, and definitely not comfortably, so we did not use on our second night. The fireplace did not work. Slight smell of gas all the time. We enjoyed our balcony and the weather permitted us to spend... More

Let me start by saying this is our 4th time staying here. We enjoy the area and it's nice to stay in an Inn instead of a chain hotel. This last stay was one of the better experiences. The room seemed to be very clean- better than in the past. We have only stayed in the original parts of the... More

I was expecting a charming, well-appointed, comfortable, and at least somewhat luxurious experience. The price of the room (not an important factor to me, but it does help measure what to expect) would merit luxury linens, feather pillows, high thread-count sheets, etc - none of these were present - and there was one small bar of soap in the bathroom,...

Had a very nice time. Thoroughly enjoyed the jacuzzi and the fireplace. Had a wonderful time in the Current at night and an incredible breakfast in the morning. Would like to return in the summer when we could sit on the balcony and look at water, not ice...

A tiny tv,you could barely see it from the bed.our comforter had a huge rip in it,it had been poorly repaired in another spot on it also.Very tacky. We ate at the restaurant.it was great.... More

My husband and I enjoyed a mid winter 2 night getaway at the Afton House Inn. We had dinner at the upscale restaurant was wonderful both food and service. Everyone from bartenders to housekeepers were so nice and helpful. Our room was large, pretty, clean and comfortable. The only complaint was our proximity to the Wine bar and the noise... More

We did the table-side cooking for all courses and this lost art really turns the night into such a memorable experience. We did the table-side ceasar salad, the table-side flaming steak diane and the table-side flaming cherries jubilee. All amazing. A night we will remember forever.

After booking, I read some concerning reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised. Perhaps there were changes made after the Inn owner read the prior reviews? My main concern was cleanliness and our room (room 8) was very clean! We also had the opportunity to view staff cleaning as we walked by rooms and they were very conscientious with making sure...
