My partner and I made a late Valentine's reservation at this hotel for a nice get-a-way. The spa and restaurant staff were pleasant. However, another group at the hotel rented a room close to ours which they used as place to gather and drink, akin to a frat party. Management was called three times with no reduction in noise.

My husband and I stayed there for our 6th wedding anniversary. Everything about it, from checking in to checking out, exceeded our expectations. We dined at 88 and service was friendly and the food was phenominal! The pool and hot tubs were clean and maintained. We will definately be staying at the Elms again!

This was a one night stay for us. We were celebrating Valentines day and our anniversary. Everything was awesome, You must try the grotto area. It's wonderful. We really wanted to use the outdoor hot tub but it snowed our entire visit.

PROS...Hotel ambience was fantastic, check-in a breeze. Great outdoor sitting area and 88 restaurant inside had a great warm fire and menu. Rooms styling very good and comfortable. Used the spa service, only browsed the grotto. CONS...allegedly haunted. No in room mini fridge or laundry service.

The Elms Hotel and Spa was a great New Years Eve party. We arrived and received two plastic glasses of sparkling wine. We stayed in the Truman Suite and thought we would receive a little extra attention or something extra for our cost, but there wasn’t anything special. It cost us over $540 for the New Year Package with dinner... More

If you are looking for a romantic getaway-this is the place. I wouldn't plan on leaving the hotel-the town has seen better days-but you will be well take care of at the hotel. Tons of history here, as well. The spa is one of the best I've ever visited. The Grotto is fantastic-exfoliation bar, dry and wet sauna, hot tub,... More

If you're looking to have a staycation or need to relax, I highly recommend The Elms. Book yourself a spa treatment and spend time in the Grotto - you'll feel like an entirely new person. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. You won't regret staying here!
