When we checked in, got sent to a house two doors down. House hadn't been renovated in decades. Several lights and fixtures did not work, carpets haven't been cleaned since the Reagan administration. Continental breakfast was awful - canned juice, one huge bowl of flavored yogurt and muffins still in their packaging from the grocery store. Couldn't mange a timely... More

Add to TripAdvisor: Many little things undone: bathroom clock set for wrong time; could not be corrected. Bedroom clock not plugged in, so I did not notice that it existed. Old water left in ice container, up high over TV, so I spilled it when I grabbed the ice container. Continental breakfast, left in room, consisted of a Yoplait, apple,... More

We were treated like family and had a great escape in Granville. After checking into our spacious, yet cozy room across from the main inn (we parked at the front door which was actually a great bonus since it was mid-winter and quite cold). After enjoying a local beer-drinker's heaven (Brew's), we took a short walk back to the inn... More

We were on a mystery trip and one of our meals was served here. The owner came in and gave us some of the history of the inn. To my surprise he attended the same college that I did, many years apart. The meal was good and we had an enjoyable time. Afterwards we were allow to roam around and... More

My company has used this hotel for guestrooms and for meeting space several times. We host a 3 hour training followed by a dinner presentation. Arlena and Dotty always take such good care of our guests. They are also easy to work with when coordinating the event. I have not stayed at the hotel myself but from what my boss... More

We stayed mid-week. We were in the building next to the main inn. They have several buildings in the Buxton Inn complex. Our room was very large, very large walk-in closet, and bathroom was also large. The ceiling was high and lots of old furniture. The room came with a continental breakfast (breakfast in a box). The dining room was... More

We chose this place because of the stories of ghosts, we went as a girls group. We had rooms 7 and 9 which are supposed to have the most activity. These two rooms are on the outside of the in, so you enter from the back stairs. The room I stayed in was room 7, the room was quite run... More

If you really like historic places then this is the place for you. The Buxton has many years of history but it really shows it's age. It is in dire need of major renovations. Rooms 7 and 9 are the rooms most talked about because of the spooky things that go on but, I do not think I would stay... More

We recently stayed for a weekend while attending a nearby wedding. The carpeting was torn in two places and there had been an obvious leak in the ceiling. The throw on the bed had a pretty terrible stain on it and the drain in the bathroom sink smelled like a sewer. There is no security lock on the door so... More

We were really excited to stay at the Buxton Inn because it is reportedly haunted. We did not experience anything ghostly, but appreciated the look of the restored Inn. The rooms seem as though they need renovated a bit more as there were several bad spots in the carpet and the ceiling looked very patched. The bed was incredibly uncomfortable... More
