The first time I stayed here I would have given it three or four stars but my second visit was closer to a one star visit. On both visits we were happy with the layout/size/cleanliness of our rooms. On the first stay we did note that there is no front desk but this did not turn out to be a... More

Reviewers have mentioned the noise levels on weekend nights, and that is, my friends, a reality. The beds and other furnishings are lovely and comfortable, prices are reasonable, and the location is just fantastic. But, if you're staying in the middle of the second floor and expect to fall asleep before midnight, you'll need to pull out all the white... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on Trip Advisor. We are a unique venue that offers a nightlife scene on premise. We are an Inn, not a full scale hotel. This is what makes us an unique hot spot in town. We do hope to see you again ~ be sure to check out our website... More

Had another Groupon so I took my mom back to the Temperance House for dinner. The decor is classic and older as the place has a rich history. The fireplace in the dining room is cozy and there are real roses and candles on each table. Our server, Maria, was top notch. We found her polite, helpful, and attentive. We... More

We actually had NO problem parking about 30 ft from the restaurant on both occassions that we went to the Temperance House this month, but i figured I would acknowledge the other reviews that at times there are parking issues as you would expect in any "quaint town" setting. The food is REALLY delicious and at first the prices seem... More

Very quaint, nicely done rooms above the taveren / resturant. You get the feel of the old style inn, but rooms are up to date. Good WiFi, not your nosey B&B. Very accommodating and moved their cars for parking. Nice dining area for complimentary snacks an continental breakfast. A very nice respit fron the hassle of a road warrior's life.... More

Went to the Temperance and had a quiet evening. Smoke is kind of a factor, but if you eat in the adjacent room it's nice. Our server Maria was so patient with us and friendly. Nice girl. We ordered, the pork was not over cooked. Drinks came fast. The bar was filled with many types of special drinks. Vegetables were... More

We have read comments and are disappointed and bewildered with your review. Upon check-in on your 3 night stay, I'm sure you were aware of the restaurant, entertainment, and tavern that are attached to the hotel. We strive to make every customer happy and would have moved you that night or one of the other 2 nights you were there... More

We rented out the entire Temperance House Inn to accomodate our guests traveling in for the reception that we had there. We had 11 rooms reserved and they were all unique and beautiful.

They're always accommodating. (I've stayed there 6 times over the past year. I smoke cigars and love the 200 year old tavern...non-smokers will not be pleased. The rooms are unique and way better than any of the local chain hotels.
