4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a great place to stay. I was there this past weekend with my friend to celebrate a big birthday. The staff was helpful and very nice. The breakfast and wine social is another great feature. I would make some recommendations for new rugs, and more detailed cleaning. There is much detail in the room and it appears that... More

This is the 2nd time we've stayed at the Ansonborough Inn. My wife and I stayed for our 30th anniversary 2 years ago and just had to go back. The location was perfect for us and is in walking distance of most of what we wanted to see and do. Although the week was very hot, we still managed to... More

We visited in late December, arriving the day after Christmas. We enjoyed the hotel, front desk was friendly and helpful. Everything was in walking distance. Enjoyed the complimentary breakfast too. We liked the rooftop deck.

We chose this hotel for the historic location and decent price. Service was friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, with a comfy bed and nice shower. The rooftop space provides a nice escape for a drink - bring your own or take up your coffee in the morning. The social hour offers the best pimento cheese dip and other... More

A co-worker had recommended this Inn to us for our trip due to its location and charm. It was perfect! We could walk around downtown from E. Bay, Meeting, and King, along the waterfront, and more. I upgraded our room to included free parking, a nightly wine and cheese happy hour, and champagne and water and koozies waiting for us... More

Loved the hotel. The roof top lounge was a pleasant experience. Excellent staff attended to every need. Easy walk to the market and several restaurants. Supermarket located across the street was very convenient. Will definitely stay again.

This hotel has great history and it shows. Exposed wood beams. Original brick walls. Elegant decor. My only criticism would be that they need to upgrade their toilet paper and tissue. They were way too rough!!!!!! It was not what I was expecting from a hotel like this.

My husband and I have stayed here before and wait listed to for this past Sunday and Monday. The rates are up there, so keep that in mind when booking your hotel and you also have to pay for parking, which is understandable in some cases, but not in a resort that cost nearly $200 per night. Our first visit... More
