My husband and I spent the night at the Lowell in one of rooms in the historic part. The room was funky and reminded me of being in Europe, we adapted easily to the quirks and enjoyed it very much. Very comfortable, the bed was nice and the sheets were nice, everything was very clean. The staff at the hotel... More

Nice hotel, great location, and friendly staff. My husband and I stayed in a modern room. The best part was the memory foam bed. I haven't slept that well at a hotel in a long time. The rooms are quiet and clean. I'll be back.

I have stayed in the old portion of the Lowell Inn before. Stayed there the Friday night before Valentine's Day. We had a room on the third floor. The unique thing about the property is the architecture and antique furniture in the dining area and our room. We ate in the George Washington room and it is a beautiful setting.... More

The decor is very Victorian and our room was very large and clean. Location is ideal to downtown. We were disappointed the restaurant is only open in the evening three days a week...would have appreciated an advisory when we booked.

In April of 2014 I put a $30 non-refundable deposit on 11 rooms at the Lowell Inn for guests at my sons wedding held on New Year's Eve. At that time all room rates were posted on line. All in all our family and friends rented approximately 22 of the 35 some rooms in the hotel. In addition we arranged... More

We stayed at the Lowell Inn for three nights during Christmas week and we enjoyed the novelty of the room, the historical lobby and overall ambience of the historical part of the hotel. I would recommend asking for a room in the historical part - the rooms are charming and filled with antiques and items from the last century. Our... More

This is our 11th stay at the Lowell Inn. If you want glitz and Hip Hop it's not here. If you want quiet and an at-home feeling this is the place. It's an old lumber Barron inn with unbelievable character. The rooms have all been upgraded, and we have never had a problem. We always have the fondue dinner and... More

My experience was nothing close to what I read on reviews prior to our trip. We traveled about 2.5 hours to get to the hotel and the check-in was easy, the room was clean, the staff was pleasant... The room was exactly as shown on the website. Some of the rooms are updated (as shown on the website) and some... More

If you are looking for modern conveniences, this is probably not going to satisfy your desires. However, if you'd like to step back into the last century and experience what was charming then, I think you'll appreciate what the Lowell provides. Yes, the bathrooms are small, as are the rooms. I only spent the night in the room; I did... More

I stayed here recently with my family. I have a 5 year old and a 1 year old. When I booked the room I explained I did not want anything old in the room. I had to baby proof my room. The room was booked as a "2 bed queen." The second bed was a sleeper and it was broken.... More
