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. We... More

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
