I was driving thru to NC and it got dark with severe rains. Many hotels were booked up or WAY overpriced. Just what I was looking for. A reasonably-priced, clean, safe, comfortable place to lay my head. The atmosphere and nostalgia was quite a bonus. It is not right off the highway, but not too far off. Other hotels were... More

Lovely old hotel right on the banks of the Ohio River. Fast friendly check in and parking no problem. Lovely river view room which was clean and bed very comfy. We had the breakfast which is included in the morning in the Gun Room which was very good. Had a walk along the river and also visited the Marietta Brewing... More

I had not realised when I booked this hotel that the rooms were themed on the old riverboats that plied the river yards from the hotel. Quirky, amusing and very comfortable rooms. This hotels public rooms are large and high ceilinged in the style of the 1850s and are perfectly charming. The location on the end of the main street,... More

We had reservations for a King room with parlor which faces the river. The room was in the corner of the building and had a very high four poster bed. The room had a new TV and a large bathroom. Check in was very fast even though the lobby was very busy due to Steamboat days starting the next morning.... More

Historical flashback. Sitting in the dining room, drink in the lounge & walking the hallways will put your mind back a century. If u dont perceive these things, give ur brain a reboot. We just left and have already decided this will be a regular stop for us as we pass thru for our north/south migration to escape the cold... More

Wow, what a great place to stay. Our family has stayed her a few times, as we have relatives nearby, and we enjoy our stay every time. I have read the reviews about how outdated the hotel is and all I have to say is DUH!! If you are looking for something chic and new, look elsewhere. We stay here... More

We turned up at the hotel without a reservation having tried several neighboring bed and breakfasts that we found were fully booked. A townsperson said the hotel was clean and we should try it. We did. The location is lovely, on the banks of the Ohio and close to good restaurants etc. The person at the desk was pleasant and... More

Read a couple negative reviews. I think I know which floor you stayed on. Do NOT stay on 3rd floor! It is VERY musty smelling. Am going to mention it to manager when we check out tomorrow. Anyway, we're on 4, and couldn't be happier . Clean,quiet,nostalgic, great town to visit! Recommend the stern wheeler tour on the rivers. So... More

My sisters, a friend and I went to visit Marietta, Oh and decided to stay at the Lafayette. So glad we did, it was a beautiful old hotel. It was very clean and well kept for its age. With lots of old furniture, which I would call antiques, and a lot of history and stories to go with it. Yes... More

I've read several reviews of this property, and some of them make me just shake my head. This is a lovely place! Somebody complains that the furniture in the lobby isn't antique, just old. Well, the hotel doesn't claim it's antique. It fits the hotel, it's clean and well-cared-for, and very comfortable ... exactly what the place aspires to be.... More
