We were finding a place to stay the night before the burial close by... this seemed to fit the bill as it was cheap enough to get 2 rooms (one for mom/dad and one for my adult 24 year old and 15 year old together just 2 doors down the hall). Husband and I got a queen parlor with sofa... More

We discovered The Lafayette while looking for some place to break up our trip to Richmond. What a wonderful gem of a hotel! If you are looking for all the modern conveniences go to the Hampton Inn, but if you are looking for charm (Victorian furnishings) and quirkiness (our room had 2 bathrooms) and a great view of the Ohio...

Our extended family of 9 visited Marietta this past weekend. We decided to stay at the Lafayette Hotel as it was within walking distance to most everything in Marietta. We rented 3 rooms... 2 parlor rooms and a cabin room as our family consisted of 5 adults and 4 children. My husband and I had 2 of our grandchildren sleep... More

We chose The Lafayette mainly because of its rich history. My husband was hoping for something straight out of ghost hunters, while I was simply happy to take in the beauty of days gone by. Of course our room had to be located on the 3rd floor, the floor where the majority of the ghostly encounters were said to have... More

We were on the interstate going south from Cleveland toward North Carolina and arrived at the Ohio River when it was time to stop. Tripadvisor alerted me to the Lafayette Hotel and I much prefer historic hotels over the chain hotels which are so much the same and from which one learns very little. The Lafayette was a reminder of... More

A nice clean hotel just 2 hours from home for a 2 day getaway,Staff is very friendly and the room was clean.The double room is very small.I recommend a larger queen room if traveling as a couple.The room price could not be beat!!There is a odd odor in the hallways that need to be addressed

This is an awesome place if you like historical sites. The negative reviews are from people who are expecting a modern hotel. If that is what you want, go elsewhere. But if you like a quaint room and hotel with lots of character and history this is a must stay. The location is also fantastic if you like walking around... More

The price of room and food was reasonable. We secured the room on Priceline.com for a two beds. When we checked in we were at the back of hotel in small double bed, we asked to be moved and were put in a double twin bed, but we had a room looking out on the river. The first room smelled... More

I've stayed at the Lafayette about a dozen times over the past couple years for obligations at the local College. The Lafayette has always been my go-to hotel because it is very well priced and right in the middle of down-town, pretty much anything you'd want to do in downtown Marietta you can walk to from the Lafayette. During the... More
