The history of this charming hotel keeps me coming back. I always have a great time and sleep with one eye open. The staff is great. There are normally other guests sitting in the lobby waiting around to swap stories. It's just an all around fun place. It isn't a luxury hotel by any stretch of the imagination, but it's... More

A friend and I had a girls weekend and loved this historic hotel! I loved the spooky atmosphere in the evening and the town of Jefferson in general. We stayed in room 5 and didn't experience any paranormal activity but I will be back to try again! The ghost walk is also very much worth your time!

This is a Charming place but all the talk of hauntings forced me to walk out as my wife refused to stay at the Hotel and not even stay in the town! My recommendation is to walk a block down the street and knock on the Parish Priest's door, slip him a love offering and tell him to exorcise those... More

We stayed the night here on 05/21/2015 before going out to see the Bonny & Clyde Ambush Festival in Louisiana. We arrived about 8 - 9 PM and had made arrangements for a late check in. The Hotel is Beautiful. We stayed in Room 21. A Beautiful Blue Room with 2 Queen sized Beds and a Tub Bath/Shower. The room... More

We had a nice time. Incredible two nights of sleep. Odd, though...we made reservations a month prior to coming, pushed back the date by a week due to rains. This wasn't a problem. Eh, it was still raining that week, too. We get there at 5:30-ish and the hotel is locked up with NO ONE home. We went to the... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Hotel Jefferson many times over the past few years and have never had an issue until now. For the last 3 Mardi Gras weekends and last 2 Pilgammage weekends we have had reservations. The process has always been the same so it isn’t like we don’t know the drill. Last year when... More

My wife and I have been coming to Jefferson for the annual historic pilgrimage and Civil War Reenactment for a decade. We have always found the hotel to be a refreshing trip into bygone eras. We have never gotten one of the rooms that were famously haunted. Last year we stayed, and on Saturday night, I woke up several times... More

Great historic place to stay in Jefferson, TX. We were looking for a place to visit for our anniversary. We spent 2 nights in Room 25 and enjoyed the "old atmosphere". Unfortunately, the hotel restaurant was not open but other good places are in walking distance. We will do a return visit to this historical place again.

We stayed in Room #10 and it was a lovely room. I do think that it was under staff at this time. We go every year for our Anniversary and will continue to go there. Nice lady at front desk. I loved the park and new walking path behind the hotel. It was very nice to be able to walk... More
