My wife and I plus several friends stayed here. We're from Philadelphia and we traveled by motorcycles to visit Hocking Hills. If your going to Lancaster, Ohio or anywhere nearby, stay at Shaw's. We loved it. Our room, the Sonoma, was perfect. Clean and comfortable. The dinner menu was varied and the food was above average and more than reasonably... More

Shaw's used to be a landmark. The one place to get higher-quality food in Lancaster. Now it is tired. The servers do not have proper training for type of restaurant the owners are trying to position the restaurant to be. On a recent visit, we waited 75 minutes (!!!) for a hamburger. There were only 3 other tables full at... More

My husband and I stayed a second time at Shaw's Inn in Lancaster. Our first stay was in the Caribbean suite. This time, we stayed in the Savannah suite. The Savannah suite was very nice. We do slightly prefer the Caribbean suite. Here are the pros and cons based on our experience: Pros: ~clean room (no b. bugs) ~televisions in... More

We stayed at Shaw's Inn, in The Venice Whirlpool Room, for my 40th birthday, 4/29/2011. I know, I'm late in posting! :) The Inn is lovely, charming and inviting. Our plan was to not leave the room once we got there, and we didn't! I enjoyed a long over-due soak in the luxurious tub, we cuddled on the love seat... More

My husband and I decided to do a little weekend getaway this past weekend. Typically, when we plan a last minute getaway, we go to our old standby...Hilton Polaris (best hotel in Columbus in our opinion). However, we wanted to try something different, yet still stay close to home due to the weather. My husband and I are rather particular... More

Very fortunate to get a room at Shaws Inn, very late on a Saturday night, about 11 pm when we got there. Nice room, in a well kept, and very classy looking downtown Hotel. The room was a corporate room, and while a little small, was well appointed, and I am sure a standard size for the age of the... More

Needed a place to stay for Parent's Day at Ohio University and everything was booked up. Found this delightful inn and so glad we did! Lovely place with a great dining room and breakfast included in the room rate! The inn is right downtown in a very historic part of town. Fun to walk around and visit the shops,museums,bakery and...

The room was small. So was bathroom. Decently clean. The check in for hotel and people arriving for restaurant is the same place. Kinda cramp. Wifi worked well. Not bad but not great. Interesting area to walk around near Inn.

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel & restaurant a total of 3 times and every time it has been a very nice stay. This is not a chain/franchise hotel. The furnishings are upscale and sometimes French Provincial, depending on your room. The rooms a very clean & the bed very comfortable. The rooms are not suites but... More
