Stayed over night with my sisters, mom and niece. We had heard ghost stories from my brother and sister-in-law for many years so we finally decided to give it a try and see what might happen. My sister and I stayed upstairs and had a very uneventful night. But my sister, mom and tiny niece all stayed downstairs in Rm.... More

Vintage/historical hotels always have a quirkiness to them and this one is no exception. Our room had no shower and the vanity lighting was quite dim. The hotel is very clean and premises are well kept. Air conditioner struggled to keep us cool, but bed was comfy.

This was my 5 th trip to the Jefferson and I must say that since last year the hotel is in horrible condition. Our bathroom cold water barely ran when turned on the wall at the head of the bed is rotting away with brown stuff running down it. Outside of our room on the ceiling is massive amounts of... More

This place is a dump! It rides off the coat tails of being haunted, but I guess the only ghost here is the maintenance person. The place has everything antique, but that's no excuse for having crappy accommodations. The bathroom towel rack is secured with a piece of wire. Also, despite the king size bed headboard being beautiful, you can... More

Great hotel, which, although a little costly, has a wonderfully historic charm. The decor was well done, we loved the civil war memorabilia in our room, and the beds were extremely comfortable. We will definitely stay again!

Two girlfriends and myself stayed for two nights. It was not busy at all on the Sunday we arrived. We all liked the hotel and its ambience. Jefferson the town, rolls up its sidewalks on Mondays so most would probably have a better time Friday's and Saturdays, not us! We did our own thing and had a great time. Beds... More

We stayed on July 3rd. My first time at this Historic sight and I have to say I was disappointed at the sight of the over grown grass and weeds along the side of this Hotel and around the back patio and especially on this 4th of July weekend. They did not even try to make it nice. My husband... More

This was our second stay at the Historic Jefferson Hotel. We made reservations a little late so we had to switch rooms from the first to the second night but the staff was very accommodating to our situation. The hotel is beautiful. Rooms are very clean. Each room is decorated differently so you don't have the "cookie cutter" rooms of... More

Stayed here for one night. Yes its historic. No elevator, no coffee in room. Nicely decorated, friendly staff, convenient to shopping, nice and quiet. Linens clean but worn, shower was hand held, not easy to use. Lots of step-ups in room due to renovations for plumbing, I kept missing them, not good. We stayed in room #1 second floor, very...

Real history, spooky ghost stories, and a step back in time. All within walking distance of the General Store, the train, and The Excelsior House. The in-house Italian restaurant is elegant and worth the wait. Across the street is a great place to grab breakfast. You can explore and touch things. Room stay cooled, even on the second floor.
