I love staying in different types of places and this was a great choice. You really get a feel for the type of accommodation prisoner had to stay in while the jail was operational but with some upgrades. No this isn't tv's in the room and that would take away from the experience of the jail. You have to have... More

The owner is very welcoming. She is very knowledgable of the area and history of the jail. I loved the winery in the basement, great tastings! Very neat old jail converted into an "inn". Great for a girls trip! Great home made food at the cafe next door, dinner restaurant 1 block away.

We were 11 woman in a motorcycle group that toured the covered bridges. The owner of this establishment will go out of her way to make you feel right at home.. Staying in a old jail was more comfortable than some hotels I have stayed in. The beds are amazing and the linens are top line. There are many different... More

Had a great stay! The owner, Debra, was wonderful. Stayed with our kids in one of the guest suites. Had a lot of fun touring the cells and learning about the history of the place. We will definitely visit again. Great food next door at the Jailhouse Café and kids loved the Rockville Sweet Shop.

It was our Christmas party for my salon and we rented whole jail. I love new places and new adventures and this place is all of that. owner has done a great job at keeping it a jail but a cosy one! Want to go back!

I mean, its a JAIL! How fun is that. Sure, it was cold in the winter and our toilet was in the room but... ITS A JAIL! If you want a fancy B&B, try the Bubble Gum Inn (very nice). If you want weird and wackey, this is the place for you!

Did a wine tasting downstairs in the Drunk Tank. Wine was great and entertainment/hospitality of both manager Trina and owner Debra was fantastic. We had a great time!! They are both very fun and great hosts. We spent the night here in the Dillinger Cell. The building is awesome and everything is very clean. We were able to take a... More

Disorganized owner and very poor customer service--in fact no service. No coffee or cream available for guests. No one answered phone or door bell in the evenings during the 2 days we were there. Breakfast "coupon" only covered $5 at the Jailhouse café next door. For a "bed and breakfast" this was the worst run place I have ever stayed... More

Was was very disappointed. Totally unsafe. 10 people - strangers share one bathroom, no door or lock. Nor fire exit or sprinklers, only one way out of a maze. The place is not clean. It is a B & B and we were promised coffee. There was none. The owner was never even seen until the afternoon. We had to... More
