The night we stayed here the receptionist was very unprofessional.I asked for a veterans discount and an AARP discount and was abruptly told that on this particular night there were no discounts of any kind .Price I paid for room was unreasonable compared to other places I have stayed.I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

First asked for a non smoking room. ( we are smokers ) was told that smokers should stay in a nice smoking room. NOT. Went back to front desk and asked to be moved, we were told because we entered the room we had to keep it or just check out!! Horrible hospitality!!

We stay at the Whitten Inn twice a year for business trips. This trip was not as pleasant as there were some rowdy & very loud workers staying behind & above our room. The night manager was aware but nothing was done. The hotel needs to consider more handicapped parking spaces than the one on each side. The first night... More

We were moving across country & stopped at this less than average hotel. The next morning there were maintenance workers banging around making loud noise outside our door. My dog was scared & jumped on one of the men. The man wasn't hurt. 3 hours after leaving we were asked to come back with vaccination paperwork. We complied, next thing... More

Will NEVER stay here again, nor recommend. Spend a few extra bucks and stay somewhere, anywhere else. Your free breakfast is done as cheaply as possible. It also comes with rules. A sign is posted in the dining area that you can "ONLY have ONE banana" and you are NOT allowed to heat up your hard boiled egg (?). What... More

Mr. Ralph checked my family into the hotel around 11:00pm. He was extremely helpful, courteous, professional and very polite!! The next morning there was a very nice lady overseeing the breakfast bar and she went out of the way to make my one year old son laugh. I will be back to this hotel for sure based on the excellent...

This Whitten is the real deal. It is still owned by the folks who started the company. Their focus on outstanding customer service is apparent when you walk in the lobby. We were greeted with a smile and a can do attitude. We requested a room on the first floor and they accommodated us. The room is no frills but... More

Just have to say that since my car broke down got stuck here I looked for hotels and the Whitten offered the best rate in town and gotta say it was worth it and more definitely a place I would recommend.

The staff are very friendly, are concerned with your needs. The rooms could use some updating, but they are clean and nice. No complaints. Will stay here again if ever in the area. Internet is real high speed unlike others that claim to have high speed internet. There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance. Very satisfied.
