The hotel owner lives for his hotel. You can tell in his attitude toward the guest when arriving he Is ready to please. Always asking if there is anything else he can do for you. When you enter the bar/ restaurant you feel the wonderful aged property. He has cared to keep a lot of the original items. He is... More

My wife and I were traveling by car up the backroads of the Mississippi River in Illinois on Route 3 and stayed at the Ruebal Hotel in Grafton, Illinois. The Ruebel was originally built in 1879, caught fire and was rebuilt in 1912. There is an old bar in the restaurant that is very beautiful. The rooms were very clean... More

DO NOT GO HERE. I left my wife in the bar while going to bed. She later informed me that the owner and some other Indian was harassing her and trying to touch her. The owner, who is also Indian or something, was very awkward with the customers and help. He touches everyone including the help and tries to dance... More

We stayed at the hotel last night and have to say it was very nice! The owner showed us 2 different rooms and let us choose which we wanted, we opted for the apartment in the basement with out own private entrance. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. Overall great experience, would defiantly stay there... More

When you walk into this hotel you see a quaint, historic place. You smile and say to yourself... wow what a neat place..... Then you go to check in , and you encounter the owner.......... He is rude and has the attitude of an elitist. Don't ask for anything, because he will be angry and rude and act as if... More

The room was very small, but it worked just fine for our overnight stay. The bar area is very lovely and there is a nice outdoor patio. I had mixed feelings on the owners. While we did not have any issues, they did not seem overly friendly. We ate breakfast in the morning there, but I think they were short... More

Thank you for your kind review. The room reserved was one of our smallest rooms. Unfortunately, the building was built in 1879 and some renovations are just not possible. We often wish they were. We strive very hard to please all of our guests, and yes we were a bit stressed due to employees needing the same day off. We... More

Very small room, but fine for a couple. Stand up shower, no tub in reg. room. Friendly staff & very nice bartender. Attached restaurant had good looking food. Overall a nice small quaint old hotel. Unfortunately didn't see the ghost, Abigail!
