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

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!

My husband and I and our two small children were planning a visit to friends in Grafton. My husband travels on business regularly and has stayed at the Ruebel before with no issues. When I called to make the reservation I spoke with the Manager. He took our reservation and noted that the credit card he had on file was... 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
