Stayed here while visiting Carleton. We stayed in room 314, which is a "large" room. Had a very comfortable Queen bed which squeaked when I climbed on it (it was high), but not at all while we were sleeping. Nice little desk at the window overlooking the main street. Full bath with shower and tub. Very clean, plenty of room... More

I really enjoyed my stay. Free wifi was pretty good. There is a gym. I took a 4th floor room and really like it. It had a bit of an attic room feel. I ate at chapati, the Indian restaurant in the lobby, had some drinks at the tavern bar and breakfast in the bittersweet cafe. I enjoyed having everything... More

Stayed here while visiting Carleton College for 2 nights. Stayed in room 300, had two double beds and a very nice size bathroom with a shower, no tub. Room was updated and very clean. Only comment I would make is that the mattresses could use replacing, they were a bit bowed and that's being picky. Staff is extremely friendly and... More

This hotel is located in downtown Northfield MN, on Division Street between Third and Second Streets. There is limited off-street parking in a lot in back of the hotel; on weekends, you can park all day and overnight on Division Street without getting ticketed. The downtown area of Northfield is scenic and historic. A number of excellent coffee shops and... More

Historic inns can be gamble because stale and frumpy can be billed as quaint and charming. The Archer house was surprisingly nice. The rooms have been tastefully updated with high quality materials. The location is in the heart of town and walking distance to Carleton College. My son was bothered by the near by train but I slept right through... More

This is a small, old hotel with all the good and bad that comes with it. The rooms are small but are clean and functional. Very few extras (no minibar or coffee maker) but a comfortable bed and good shower. The staff is friendly and helpful but not always available. The room had an armoire instead of a closet. The...

We stayed at Archer House for a weekend recently. It is a charming building dating from 1877, with enough remodeling to make it comfortable but not so much that is ruins some of the original features. We stayed in a large room on the third floor; it was comfortable and clean with a four poster bed and a view over... More

I don't think I've ever written a review for a place I've yet to stay at, but I was just so impressed by the front desk service. I'd left a message checking availability for a last minute same day reservation. I received a call back within 5 minutes, and while it turned out that the Archer House was indeed fully... More

My friend and I stayed in the Executive suite for three nights from July 2,3,4, 2014. We loved the place from the moment we were checked in by the charming Marseen. She was helpful, courteous, knowledgeable about the area and a real asset to her employer. Another employee who deserves acknowledgment is Tanner who works the Tavern where we enjoyed... More

I travel a lot and I understand that not every property is a Marriott or Starwood property. Some are quaint little bed and breakfasts and that's their charm. Well, this place is FAR from charming! First off, there is a heavy set, African American woman at the front desk who is the most rude service industry person I have ever... More

Todd B, Manager at The Archer House, responded to this review

It took me sometime to respond to this persons review because after investigating, I was so angered by his unfairness, clear exaggeration and demeaning treatment of our staff during his visit. We are a small inn and we very much enjoy getting to know our guests, finding solutions to their issues and providing whatever assistance we can during their stay... More
