We stayed at Shaw's Inn after a day at Lilyfest in Hocking Hills. This place is a real gem and has all the amenities and charm of an older hotel. It is historic and the room was wonderful. I booked two beds and we got two adjoining rooms each having a bathroom. One room had a king size bed and... More

We have prime rib and nice salad. Good service and interesting atmosphere. Each table gets complimentary rolls-quite large and warm. They were a big hit at our table! The price was as expected- not too high for a nice place. The had run out of pie that night but we were stuffed enough.

Great room. As a solo, I stayed in a corporate room. Very lovely and quiet. The breakfast which is included was superb, but the real treat was dinner. Fresh seafood in Ohio? Some of the best I've had.

I am writing this review to let you travelers know that if you are debating between this hotel and any others in the area, the choice is a no brainer. Shaw's Inn makes you feel like you stepped back into the 60's with beautiful architecture, charm, and hospitality. The hotel has an on site restaurant that serves seasonal food from... More

This time, we stayed in one of their newly renovated rooms, the Kashmir Whirlpool Room. Below are the Pros and Cons of our stay: Pros: ~Friendly and welcoming staff ~Clean... More

Thanks for the great Trip Advisor reviews that helped us find this place. My husband and I stayed here for a night and we loved it. Cannot understand the bad reviews, unless the reviewer didn't like the quirks of older hotels, in which case just don't stay here. It is a hotel in spite of being listed as a B&B.... More

We were disappointed in our recent lunch experience here. We were greeted kindly at the front desk and asked to be seated on the patio for lunch. We ordered a bottle of wine and the server had opened it inside and brought it out to us . It was the wrong type and she mumbled unprofessionally and stomped back inside.... More
