We passed through Rochester on a skateboard trip for one night and The Governor's Inn was a perfect spot. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. Our room was clean and had a cozy fun look. To top it off our continental breakfast was the best we had on our 3 week trip. Thank you Gov inn!

Nice little Inn, with restaurant and bar. Nice people always ready to satisfy our needs and questions. Large and larger rooms with air conditionned, and very nice continental breakfast. Manager and employees very welcoming. We will be back for sure.

Stayed two nights here recently. The place is very fine. A lot of weddings and parties go down here. It's probably the nicest room around. The hotel room is original and that means it's a little tight. That's the way they did it back then. Very cozy and quaint. Nothing overly fancy, nothing to complain about. I'd stay again. I... More

We were in the area for a wedding. First room they put us in was huge but had no place to hang a dress or put any clothes away except for a very small closet (too short for a dress) and a bureau in the bathroom, which was neither convenient or a good place to store clothes. Air conditioning was... More

Quiet, comfortable, clean, good value - lovely old building which is well decorated with memoribillia. Rooms are old but in good shape, bathrooms are fine (no hair dryer) - staff are most friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast was excellent especially nice selection of fruit and a couple of fresh baked items. Two decent restaurants and a bar are attached which... More

Kudos to Lisa, Sue, Robin, AND Dawna. Service is a lost art that the staff and employees here have revived. The food is awesome with Dawna doing double duty as our bartender and server it demonstrates the commitment to excellence. I brought my wife for the Murder Mystery and had the time of our lives. Not only was the cast... More

We went last year for the Murder Mystery. An Amazingly fun night and a wicked good time. Had a great room at the inn for the night too. Definitely suggest if you are going to enjoy your beverages at the Murder Mystery getting a room. Cannot wait to do it again this year!
