This is a wonderful historic choice for a quick get-a-way. There are pros and cons wit an old hotel. Pros: - Historic rooms that each have a story. A personalized welcome letter was included with ours that told about the President that stayed in our room. All of the rooms had plaques outside that tell about the historical figure that... More

This is a very beautiful inn, it is the oldest inn in Ohio. It has a very period feel to the inn but has all the modern conveniences that you find in other inn's. It was amazing to stay in a place where presidents have stayed. We stayed in the Harriet Beecher Stowe room, was very impressed with the feel... More

This is a very historic inn. It has been here since customers arrived by stage coach. You can stay in rooms that famous figures in history have stayed. Service is excellent and staff is friendly. The rooms are not large and certainly not modern, but the atmosphere is a delightful trip back in time.

First time staying at TGLI. For the most part, we had an excellent stay. Check in was absolutely painless, the staff were friendly, and our room was lovely. The inn is in terrific condition, and really reflects what it must have been like to have stayed there over a century ago. We were booked in the Dewitt Clinton room, located... More

We've spent a lot of years returning over and over again to the Golden Lamb. They did have some rough years when the hotel changed hands a couple times, but recently have made some positive changes to the upkeep of the hotel. I'm glad to see the old charm returning and some much needed renovations done, while retaining the old... More

Great place to go for a great meal, super service, lovely gift shop, and a piece of American history. We took a tour of the inn and saw rooms where presidents have stayed the decor was beautiful and very well kept. A very classy place we will be going back

Golden Lamb is the oldest hotel in Ohio and was the destination for many presidents visiting southern Ohio. Rooms are nice and cozy. Hotel was built in early 1800s, so keep this in mind when making your decision. Some visitors may be looking for modern amenities but rooms come with TV and free wi-fi.

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful Golden Anniversary weekend at The Golden Lamb, the oldest Inn in Ohio c.1803. 50 years ago we spent our honeymoon in the very same room, the "Charles Dickens" room. Charles Dickens stayed at The Golden Lamb in April of 1842. The bed in this room is very historic as it is... More

I was traveling to spend time with family for the holidays and decided to stay a night at this historic hotel. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The William Howard Taft room was charming and comfortable with all of the wonderful quirks and details that you would expect in a historic inn. They serve a complimentary continental breakfast that... More
