Extremely nice and helpful staff the owner wonderful and went out of his way to make our stay very special. Our room was very clean and nice step back into time on the river front. We enjoyed the private balcony room with a bottle of wine and relaxed while watching the river traffic. We had not been in this area... More

We are Hilton Honors members, so we are used to Hiltons. But this was an interesting little hotel in a great location. The owner has a big personality and tries to make sure all your needs are met. There is a bar, restaurant, ice cream store and after hours pizza. The room was a bit small -- but that's the... More

This was a great place to stay. We loved the appearance and arrangement of our room. The beds were great and had lots of pillows. Hart, Margaret and Dawn were great hosts. The bathroom light went out on our visit and Hart came and fixed in within 10 minutes. Margaret waited on us in the restaurant and made us great... More

We had a standard superior room, very nice, very clean. Our friends paid a little more for a river view room, and it has a neat balcony, but calling it river view is a stretch....you can see the river, but it is not on the river and there are houses obstructing most of the view. Overall a very nice historic... More

This is a wonderful small family owned business. The rooms were so clean, the restaurat food was excellent. The owner is very much customer oriented. It is very affordable actually too cheap. Cant wait to return. Great location within walking distance to everything.

I like staying in places like this. There is a certain charm to the older hotels that you can't find in the modern motels. If you are looking for a Hampton Inn look elsewhere here you will find room build for a different era of traveling. My room was clean and the bed comfortable and a good size. There was... More

Thank you for your recent review. We greatly appreciate you finding time to do so. As you mentioned your sink being on the outside of the bathroom, we do have some rooms that the sinks are in the bathroom as well as a tub and shower. Unfortunately, since the building was built in 1879 there are some things that just... More

I was not impressed by the Reubel at all! The manager and owner was extremely rude! While I was there, I witnessed an argument between a young lady and the owner. From what I could gather, they had booked 3 rooms(two of which were for 2 nights and the other for one night) and he charged her for twice the... More

Thank you for your kind comments. However, the facts you are stating are a bit construed. As stated at the time when a reservation is taken we inform the customer that during our peak season there is a two night minimum on all weekends during our peak season which is May thru October. This policy is also stated and confirmed... More

Do not overlook this place during the winter months! Since the Bald Eagles move south to feed, due to the river conditions up north, this is the perfect place as a base for nature lovers. We always look for historic locations to stay and The Ruebel Hotel fit the bill. Their early week winter rates are fantastic. We checked in... More

We weren't quite sure what to expect when we booked the Ruebel hotel in Grafton but it was only two blocks from a wedding that we were going to so we took the chance and I have to say we were pleasantly surprised. We arrived a little early but they went ahead and let us check in anyway. Walking into... More
