This hotel is in a great location. We were able to check in at 3:00 pm sharp and we're greeted in a friendly manner. However, the carpet in the Brigham Young Suite was so filthy you didn't want to take your shoes off! The bathroom floor was dirty, the furniture was worn and so dirty you didn't want to sit... More

We had a great stay in a clean comfortable room. The owner was very involved and went above and beyond to accommodate our large, crazy family. The gallery was perfect for the wedding reception. The food they catered was exceptional. Truly a great one stop shop for getting married in Nauvoo. P.S. They make an amazing chocolate chip cookie.

This hotel has the small town, authentic old building feel, without feeling like you're staying in an old house. We stayed in a deluxe guest room which had two queen size beds and a rollaway bed. We were on the third floor and had a little balcony with a beautiful view of the Nauvoo LDS Temple. The room was spacious... More

The rooms our family had at this hotel were the best rooms we have ever stayed in. The hotel was historic and full of ambiance. We had a few rooms each with views of the Temple and city and large walkout balconies. What a hotel gem right in the center of Nauvoo. We would be the first to recommend this... More

This hotel was wonderful and historic. The rooms were very clean and very comfortable. We stayed here a couple years ago and this time was even better than the last. They're getting better all the time. We are so happy we stayed.

We had an amazing time staying at this historic hotel in Nauvoo. The rooms were so comfortable and ours was huge. The Temple was right outside our window and that made for beautiful views at night. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We had the breakfast buffet and it was very good. We would recommend this hotel to anyone... More

My husband and I decided to go to Nauvoo for our sealing on June 9, 2014. We schedule and reserved a room back in April 2014. On our way to Nauvoo, we saw that we would be getting there early and it was thunder storming. We didn't have a place to go to wait until 3. The owner was kind... More

The building and our room were both clean but the employees were sub par and made it difficult to give a more positive review here. Calling 30 minutes in advance to see if we could check in "early" (check in is 3:00 pm), the phone immediately went to a recorded ". . .we're busy with guests", which is understandable IF... More

We just spent a weekend in Nauvoo and stayed here. The staff was incredibly friendly and found us accommodation without much notice. The room was pretty spacious and very nicely kept. The building are full of history. Wish they had a restaurant though. They had shut their grill down in anticipation of a move.

We recently attended a wedding in Nauvoo, with the reception at the Woodruff Hotel. We stayed in the historic building. It was beautiful and very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the rooms were all very large with mini-fridges and we even had a couch. The hotel staff was great! They were incredibly accommodating and kind. The wedding reception,... More
