We took a church group of 60 kids and 20 adults. A perfect location, the rooms were very clean and comfortable. A nice gathering spot between the two buildings was perfect for when we needed the group to gather.

Really awesome location and cool historical ambiance. Really needs a reno/update, in terms of amenities eg. television, adding phones to the rooms etc. Friendly staff and cool experience. Located near everything there is to see and do in Nauvoo.

The service at the Woodruff Hotel is terrible. I attempted to book the hotel's event gallery for my wedding reception and a stay. I called several times to book, each time they were too busy to book me, said they would call me back and never did. The staff was totally unaccommodating and unapologetic even when they were completely at... More

It is true that we are very busy in the summer. But we are so sorry that we were unable to be more helpful to you in scheduling your wedding event. We are very good at weddings and the New Nauvoo Pageant has almost doubled the visitors & people in Nauvoo. Please accept our sincere and genuine apology. We hope... More

We have been here three times in the past few years. We are always pleased with our stay. Our favorite room is the Smith suite which we have had the pleasure of booking twice. It has an unbeatable view from the balcony. The room has more space than we wopuld ever need but its still warm and inviting. We LOVE... More

This is a beautiful hotel with unforgettable views of the Nauvoo Temple. Our room was large and spacious. It was almost like a small apartment. There is a new section of the hotel with an elevator, the historic section of the hotel was where we stayed and it was so nice, but there is no elevator in that area. This... More

Our family had some unique needs that the hotel management went out of their way to accommodate prior to our recent visit. Our needs were personally heard and honored by the management, and upon our arrival we found our room to be the restful oasis we had requested! That kind of personalized service is rare. We will definitely stay again... More

Gorgeous old hotel. Great price for a family suite that sleeps up to 6 (two queen beds and a queen sized couch pull out bed). Good size bathroom. Great location, easy walking distance to the temple just a few doors down.

Very close to the temple and a grocery store down the street. Great price for a large family. We stayed in one of the larger suites with two queen beds and a king. Just realize it's on the third floor and a LOT of stairs (no elevator). No refrigerator or microwave in the room. That being said, it is an... More

We picked the Woodruff Hotel for location and the fact that we could get a two bedroom suite. Coming from a hotel background I felt that meant two seperate bedrooms (with a door in between at the least.) The description even said it had a sitting area. This was not that case. It was two large rooms with 3 beds.... More

If you are spending the night in Nauvoo, the Woodruff Hotel is a must! It is the neatest place we have ever stayed just in its historical value alone. The decor is the perfect mix of modern and traditional and the artwork throughout is stunning. Our room was overlooking the main street with a view of the temple but I... More
