Hotels like this, that combine genuine historic charm with modern conveniences and comfort, are very rare. The room was perfectly clean, pretty, and comfortable. And the restaurant serves anything you could possibly want for breakfast. I honestly can't recommend it highly enough, especially for a romantic getaway!

After reading some of the reviews about poor customer service, we were a little leery of staying here, but are so glad we did! The owner was arriving just as we were and walked us in and took care of checking us in, and he had a great sense of humor and bantered back and forth with us with ease.... More

We had about half the hotel reserved for a family reunion. The hotel is historic and refurbished, but more than met the needs for our 30 plus family members from 85 years old down to toddlers. I cannot say enough about the management and especially the staff of this property as they were very attentive and more than accommodating in... More

A gentleman in the Grafton Visitor Center recommended this Hotel. Good thing. You could ride through Grafton, Illinois, and ride right by. It is a old hotel completely refurbished. My room, "Sultana", was small but more than adequate. The night was quiet and comfortable. It is a unique overnight experience. While I was there, I had a tight schedule, and... More

This was a great pick for us. We enjoy visiting the very old hotels and this was a gem. Very clean and very helpful staff. Rooms are smaller but we expect that in these old buildings. We had everything that we needed. Would definitely stay here again. Restaurant was nice. Also appeared very clean. Service was great. We had a... More

What a wonderful place to stay! Love the old hotel, room was very comfortable. Bar/restaurant attached were very nice. Live music on Sat. Shops and bars, to visit with in walking distance. Great stop on the motorcycle! Can't wait to visit again!

Stopped in for breakfast and after waiting 15 minutes to get a server (such a big busy place with all 30 people in there) we got a server finally ordered 2 omlets. Waited another 50 minutes the table that ordered just before (with 8 people at it) us had gotten there food paid and getting ready to leave. We asked... More

Thank you for your wonderful review, however, there seems to be some missing facts. You were not seated in the restaurant for breakfast as you just walked in and joined a table who had already been served and were finished with their breakfast. It was only discovered when coffee refills were being done at which time you stated that no... More

This is not your typical hotel. A 100+ year old building with a ton of character. Rooms are clean and owner/staff is very friendly. Great place to stay with a group - bar downstairs, outdoor deck and patio provide spots to congregate. Don't expect all the luxuries of modern day hotels - sink was in the sleeping room and bathroom... More

Charming hotel with riverfront historic feel, was re-built a few years ago after flooding so rooms are in very good shape. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, breakfast meal was fast and tasty.
