My fiance and I went down to Charlestown last minute to visit his parents for the 4th of July. There was no room at their house, so she called around to find us a room at a local hotel/motel. The only room she found available was at the General Stanton Inn. She informed Janice, the owner, that she wanted to... More

Was hopeful as I needed a room for one night in Charlestown... Unfortunately the owner/manager appears to have a behavior disorder that interferes with good business practice. Unable to have a conversation without her responding irrationally. Room was dirty and musty. Don't ask to see a room....extremely threatened by the request. Shower was cold water, owner accused me of breaking... More

On the positive side, the location is justt off Rte 1 and close to the beaches. The value was good, also. However, the property was run down, weeds everywhere, peeling paint, mildew. We found trash under the bed. That skanked us out, however the beds appeared to be clean as was the bathroom. We were disappointed to not be staying... More

We were in the Charlestown area over the weekend and stayed at another facility that I will not mention. I had attempted to make a reservation with Janice (the owner) for the weekend but the inn was completely booked for Labor Day. Instead, we stopped by the flea market on Sunday to say hello to Janice and check the place... More

Many years ago my husband and I stayed at the General Stanton Inn. Upon our return this year, we were happy to find Innkeeper Janice Falcone still in residence. The room was pleasant and clean just as we remembered some twenty five years ago and to find “Janice” still presiding made it that much more special! The Genera Stanton Inn... More

We stayed at the General Stanton Inn August 2012. As soon as we unlocked the outside door and entered the hallway this horrible musty gross smell just hit us! Once we entered our room it was the same thing, extremely musty/moldy!! The area rugs looked like they have never been cleaned. We immediately put the a/c on and actually opened... More

We stayed in the General Stanton Inn in August 2011 which we had pre-booked following their information on their website. The most deceiving ever! While there may be some nice rooms in the main building, not that we were told about them even after offering to pay any rate for the night's stay, we were put into the motel style... More

Our family stayed at the General Stanton Inn for several days the last week of July. Pros: It is an historic inn dating back to the 1600s made up of an original building and a separate house. In it's day it's proximity to Old Post Road must have made it a convenient and popular place to stay. The main house... More

Pros - nice property, decent price for room. Room was very spacious & primarily clean. Comfortable bed. Cons -Inn room was changed without notifying us. Carpeting was stained in multiple areas. Possibly haunted (this can be a pro or con!!). Was supposed to have wi-fi internet in room, but did not have adequate signal,
