We came into town thinking we had a reservation elsewhere and we're lucky enough to land here. We were tired and hungry and needed to be taken care of and that's just what we got! Our room was set up just for us! They were able to get us a fresh pizza even at that late hour. The beds were... More

We booked a Saturday night at Fairplay Hotel for Mother's Day get away and had a wonderful stay there. We were so glad to hear they reopened under new ownership. The hotel is old (built in 1873), has lots of character and history! They are dog friendly with no extra fees for furry children! Just the kind of places we... More

We met family here for lunch, and the bartender did not toss us out, even once! She was most accommodating, and was happy to bring us multiple refills on our water (we were acclimating!) as well as some delicious adult beverages.

The Fairplay is is unique in the best way. Gorgeous amenities and wood work. The restaurant serves fantastic fresh food, and the rooms were perfect. There has apparently been a difficult transition for the new owners due to an uncooperative previous owner. The staff was great, I highly recommend it.

Phone price not honored. Employee smoking on porch. Told they had a restaurant but found out it was closed due to employees quitting. Owner told me " To Blow". Dog pee in room. Heater broke. Wi Fi did not work.

I called to check price for the night for three people and pet policy and was quoted $80. Upon arriving at the hotel it took over ten minutes to get a staff member to try and check me in then she had to get the owner. Then they charged me $106. When I complained they said the $80 was if... More

We recently visited this hotel for a wedding reception. The last time we were there we were not impressed. But this time the staff was excellent, very attentive and glad to help. We were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is under new management and a different attitude is noticeable. Changes are being made to the interior of the hotel to bring... More

It's an elegant place and the rooms have character. Loved the atypical bedding with flowered sheets and pretty comforter, it was charming. It's recently changed management and or ownership so expect changes. I'll email them separately about some things to improve. No screen on the windows where we were but we opened the window when the lights were off and... More

It is so quaint and wonderfully historic. I've stayed here twice, and if I pass through the area again I will stay here. The owner is on premises, and is a very nice person. Looking forward to next visit.

We decided to beat the heat in town and head up to the mountains for the weekend to explore, 4wd and hike. Not being much for camping I found this hotel online that was pet friendly (a requirement for us). We weren't sure what to expect and were pleasantly surprised. It is a historic hotel (1873) so you'll have to... More
