I always like to start by saying that I've been in the travel business for over 20 years... I'm not easily impressed. We visited the Mentone Inn for a weekend with friends. As soon as we walked in the door, Cynthia the Innkeeper greeted us with, "Welcome to my home". A fire in the fireplace and cozy couch's in the... More

Cynthia ( and Nolan ) were the perfect hosts for our World's Longest Yard Sale weekend. Relaxing and laid back and fun! The Inn is situated perfectly for dining and shopping. Mentone is a must visit. Thanks Cynthia!

Such a beautiful old lady! This bed and breakfast has an old charm to it that you will fall in love with. Huge wrap around porch with swings and rocking chairs. Cynthia the Inn keeper has the porch and yard gorgeous with plants and flowers. She is such a nice lady, who knows a lot about the history of the... More

What a wonderful breakfast buffet!! It isn't even required that you stay here (but why wouldn't you, it's so soulful)!! Tomato pie, cheese grits, biscuits gravy, conehca sausages, hashbrown casserole, eggs florentine, French toast casserole, chocolate covered strawberries. Coffee(not the greatest), juice or milk. It was amazing!!!

After reading several reviews questioning the cleanliness of the Inn, I have to say this is a very old building with lots of rooms and wood, and those of you who have complained about cobwebs and/or dust should think about the age of the building, how old it is, how hard it must be to keep all of it shining...

Our stay this past weekend at the Mentone Inn B&B was fantastic, especially the absolutely delicious Southern breakfasts. We really loved our room with its beadboard walls and ceiling, plenty of hot water, a ceiling fan and very comfortable vintage beds with quilts and quality linens. Another great aspect is the wrap-around front porch, with its rockers and swings. We're... More

The Mentone Inn has been a favorite of ours for years, and since Cynthia took over it has gotten even better. There have been several wonderful Innkeepers there, and a couple who were not so wonderful, and the "old lady" as we call the inn, deserves someone wonderful to take care of her. I would suggest going to all of... More

First of all, let me say I had to put in a date of stay to be able to leave these notes. We DID NOT stay there in November of this year. Had we stayed it would've been leisure, and it would've been with my husband. My husband and I booked a room in the Mentone Inn almost two years... More

mentoneinn, General Manager at Mentone Inn, responded to this review

The incident in question happened in 2008. A gift certificate was issued by the "then" Innkeeper Gloria, with a one year expiration date. Gloria left the Inn in APRIL 2009 and the New General Manager agreed to honor this certificate for the agreed time line of one year. It expired December 2009. It is now December 2010. The Inn has...

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay with the delightful Ms. Cynthia who was a gracious, yet unobtrusive hostess as well as a fine Southern cook. She was extremely helpful with extensive local knowledge. The Inn has much ambiance and is quite comfortable. It is 100 years old, not the Ritz Carleton, so be clear about what you are wanting.
