My wife and I stayed at the Willard Richards Inn for three nights and it was great! The Inn keepers were extremely knowledgeable and helpful, they shared personal experiences, gave a fascinating tour of the property, and really love what they do. The hotel was fantastic being located in the heart of the old city and we loved staying in... More

It was a delight to stay in this historic Inn, in a beautiful location in historic Nauvoo. The bedrooms and Inn are nicely decorated and so comfortable! A nice basket of breakfast items are ready every morning by your door, ready to eat or take away for the day. Centrally located it allows you to walk anywhere you might want... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Willard Richards Inn. The place is clean, quite and filled with nostalgia. The Inn Keepers were friendly and gave us a great tour and were so helpful. We will recommend it to our friends. The location was the best. Right in the heart of the old town. We have some very happy memories of... More

The Willard Richards Inn is right in the heart of the historic area of Nauvoo. Walking distance to nearly everything you'll want to see and they offer free bike rentals as well. We stayed for 3 nights which was just about the right amount of time to see everything.

Two groups of us on motorcycles from Salt Lake and Baltimore met here for our trip down the Mississippi. Half were LDS and half not. Speaking for the unaffiliated side of the ledger, this might have been one of the coolest experiences ever. GREAT house with owners steep in local history. I didn't know the history of Nauvoo but left... More

This lovely historic home is a wonderful place to enjoy the history of the area. With a view of the Temple from our windows in the Smith bedroom, we felt we were right in the middle of things. Our room was spacious and comfortable and up-to-date with good wifi connection. The innkeepers were charming and kind and gave us a... More

My wife and I visited Nauvoo for the very first time and stayed in this lovely home. We stayed in the Reimbold room. We loved the old bar wood and exposed brick on the walls. This is a beautiful place, very clean and quiet. We were celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary, this was a very romantic place to do it.... More

We stayed from Aug 9-12,2015, and loved every minute of it. I loved the attention to detail and such clean and inviting place to stay. I have no complaints! The Nauvoo room was so lovely and the innkeepers are so dedicated making the guests happy. We were told such inspiring stories of Nauvoo and loved taking in all the history... More

We stayed in the Reimbold room for a single night. Room is partly under eaves of the attic so taller guests might find it a headache but the low ceiling doesn't extend all the way into the sleeping area. The air conditioning was a bit on the cool side. Not much room to get out of the bed on the... More

WORLD'S WORST CUP OF COFFEE The vast majority of our guests are here to soak of the history of the house and the town. We pride ourselves on providing an exceptional educational experience by dispensing interesting historical details that you would never learn about Nauvoo anyplace else. But we will admit up front that we may serve the world's worst... More

We stayed in the Smith Room which was quiet, clean and comfortable. We did have some trouble with the wifi, but otherwise we enjoyed staying in the historic home and Jeannette treated us very well. We borrowed the bikes for a fun ride around the historic sites and the pageants are right across the street!
