This was an unexpected visit in May 2015 for a family funeral led us back to the little town of my ancestral roots.This was our second stay at the Boone Tavern Hotel in 4 years - the first not quite as grand, since all that was available then was a double bed. This time we had the great comfort of... More

As a couple who love the b&b's and try to avoid all those big chain hotels, this was a true treasure. Some of the reviewers have been a bit critical with all those college students working in the hotel - our experience was quite the opposite. Couple of older staff members - who I believe were part of the permanent... More

Thanks to tripadvisor, we found this gem; otherwise, we'd have just stayed on the interstate. We were in the area for just one night. Found Boone Tavern and rented a 1 br double bed.For an older building, the room was very nice and nicely appointed with furniture made by the college students. Room was clean and quiet. We bought a... More

I wasn't expecting a lot, admittedly - and if you go in that way you'll be thrilled. Room was immaculate, people were lovely. Admittedy you could tell they were all students and not too polished, but if you know that, it's most pleasant. It is all to support the College. Interesting history. My dinner was so outstanding, I'd go back... More

We had great hopes for a wonderful evening staying at the Boone Tavern. Sadly it turned into a MAJOR disappointment. Our room (316) was right by the ice machine which kept us awake all night. We called the front desk but they basically said "tough luck- someone has to say in that room". The room was very small and the... More

This old, elegant hotel is just the place to escape the perils of Interstate 75 or the host of chain hotels available to you in the area. Step back into a slower time of your life in a very nice sleeping establishment owned by Berea College, in a peaceful and lovely academic setting. A historic inn, tastefully and comfortably decorated... More

Our fourth visit in some 30 years was a joyful return to a much improved hotel, unique in both its setting and operation. Associated with Berea College's student service program, we have been tolerant of the hotel's deficiencies (antiquated but charming accommodations in 1984, upgraded accommodations but still no alcohol in 2009), finally in 2014 Boone Tavern entered the modern...

Just 7 or 8 hours from Chicago, I like heading to Berea for some country charm and hospitality. We have visited this college and shops before, but this is our first time experiencing a stay at the Historic Boone Tavern. Although the hotel is over 100 years old, it has had remodeling and is updated, and is stately and well... More

Not wanting to sound repetitive and having only more good comments to add to the other glowing reviews for Boone’s Tavern Hotel, it is hard to know what to tell you that you don’t already know except to ‘stay here if you have the opportunity’. In my opinion the building is visually stunning, historically fascinating; the service outstanding throughout, the... More

A wonderful weekend & a wonderful hotel & staff. I was there for a family wedding & could not have been more impressed! The hotel is great, but the staff makes it even better. Everyone in all departments went over & beyond in guest quality service. But I did want to give special praise to one staff member, Admiral B.... More
