My wife and I try to seek out unusual (non-chain) places to stay while traveling, and we couldn't resist booking a room in this hotel after reading about it's history. The hotel (built in 1928) has an amazing presence in this small town, and looks inviting from the outside. It's even cooler inside - an old fashioned register where your... More

This hotel was out of our way in our travels but so very worth the side trip. It was an amazing hotel with a even better staff who were so friendly. Our room was very comfortable. The restaurant, food was over the top!

Wife and I stayed here in June, when we were in town for a relative's wedding. I'll be honest, we weren't expecting much from central Ohio, but we were blown away by the quality of the food and the comfort of the room. We ate 4.5 meals here (I'm counting the pub fries as a half meal... more on those... More

My husband and I dined at The General Denver Hotel restaurant last weekend and the Black Bean Chili was great but the Carrot Cake was superb!! Likable plates for sure. The restaurant is situated in a historical building, very clean and the manager is very knowledgeable - his wife is the dessert chef. We will definitely go back - a... More

for the price is an excellent stay in Wilmington if you have the misfortune have to be in Wilmington Ohio. the rooms are very retro to a different time in our history. Delightfully clean what is modern of facilities as they can provide. The real gym is the pub on the bottom floor of the hotel. Complete with at least... More

My excellent rating is meant for people who appreciate historic properties and not for those that need a suite at the Ritz to be comfortable. The rooms seem small now but they were perfectly normal when the place was built in 1928. The current owners live on site (just like a mom-n-pop motel) which means they keep a pretty good... More

Had lunch at the General Denver and very good food / value for the price. If you're in the area consider visiting the General for a meal. The menu is pretty basic (no gastro pub food), but the portions are huge and the quality is definitely there. Good service and the atmosphere is definitely interesting.

I go to the General Denver restaurant at least once a month, and I've always been very happy with their service and their food. If you show up on a weekend they will have some live music, usually a guitarist or a singer. The music isn't too loud, so it is still easy to carry on a conversation. Their beer... More

My husband and I spent a night here at the end of June. While driving southeast through Indiana and Ohio we felt a little bit like we were going back in time to the 20th century. The rural landscape, farms and unfortunately, power outage from the recent storm, made us realize that we've lived much of our lives with modern... More

We like old hotels, and the General Denver is one of those throwbacks to the days when people traveled by rail and stayed in hotels in a city center. Wilmington, though, is nothing to write home about, and the General Denver's restaurant, while OK, was not very inspired. We're unlikely to return.
