Stayed here one night on a road trip with the in-laws. It's a very small hotel but the rooms were decent size. Loved the Victorian look of the lobby and the lower level rooms. The upper rooms were all Indian/Western theme and wasn't as neat as the lower level. Loved being part of the hotel's history. I'd highly recommend a... More

The wife and I stayed at the hotel over the weekend to celebrate our anniversary and truly enjoyed every minute of our time there. From the moment we walked in made us feel as if we were stepping back in time to yesteryear. Wonderfully appointed Victorian décor throughout with beautiful charming and clean guest rooms which made us feel as... More

I stayed here in July 2013 because of the rave reviews I read on TripAdvisor. It was warm, comfortable and while the decor was as comfortable as my grandmother's home, it was part of the charm of the B&B. I felt good here. The next morning I was running a little late and left the hotel leaving three VERY important... More

Very nice Victorian hotel. We have stayed here a number of times, over the years. The new owner, Lori is doing a wonderful job. Wow, what an awesome historical place to experience. My husband and I had a great time. Beautiful and super clean rooms, and nice continental breakfast. We feel so much at home there. And for it being... More

I noticed this hotel several years ago while working in the area and decided then and there, if the opportunity came up, that is where I'd rather stay than the Super 8. I've been travelling a lot this year and am already burnt out on the usual places, I wanted someplace with character. This hotel is has a warmth that... More

My wife and I had an awesome stay. Beautiful clean rooms that made you feel you went back in time. there are some older reviews that should be ignored. The new owner seams to really be doing a great job. We will be staying there again.

Stopped by for a short stay and enjoyed this place, which we pretty much had to ourselves. Rooms are decent sized, queen beds, desk, sitting chair, all decorated in nice period antiques. Some rooms are larger than others (multiple beds, refrigerators, sofas), so it pays to ask in advance about the rooms. We like old properties, so we accept flaws.... More

Although my entire family resides in and around Holton, our decision to stay at Hotel Josephine was perfect. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. From the moment we walked in it was obvious that we were in a clean, caring and comfortable environment. With our vacation starting off running for the airplane and continued with crazy,... More
