Staff is very friendly and wants to make your stay enjoyable. Rooms are very comfortable, bar is very nice. Just a great place to spend some time. This hotel has 36 wonderful rooms. The local restaurants make this a really great small town.

For the second year in a row, a group of our NC based car club used the General Francis Marion Hotel as our base camp for a weekend drive through some of the beautiful mountain roads around Marion. The hospitality provided to our group by the hotel staff was second to none. The hotel Marketing Manager, Karen, was especially helpful... More

Stayed here to go to the Song of the Mountains. Outstanding hotel reflecting the elegance of an earlier age. The rooms were comfortable and well maintained. Great staff, very helpful. Food at restaurant good and reasonably priced.

I took my son to enroll in a nearby boarding school. We ended up spending the night in this hotel. It was charming and reasonably priced. I had the trout in the restaurant and it was good. The beds are comfy and the bathrooms very luxurious. What an unexpected surprise!

I was really excited to visit this hotel because of the history within it. Upon arriving, we parked in the rear parking lot. Entering through a small alley doorway, where you could hear the water dripping down the drain from the roof top air conditioner. Upon entering, my first thought was the smell of "old." There were wood planked floors... More

We take a great deal of pride in our hotel’s history. The artwork in the hotel, in the rooms and on the walls of the public spaces, is representative of art work that was popular during the 1920’s. The card room features the front page of the Smyth County News dated Thursday, January 27, 1927. The article was written prior... More

What a lovely surprise to find such a nice, classic hotel in a small city in the Virginia mountains. The location downtown was great, walkable to restaurants and galleries. The decor of the room and bath was beautifully well done and the folks tending the front desk were welcoming and helpful. Parking is right behind the hotel. At the complimentary... More

We were in the area for another event and got to stay at this great little hotel. From the moment of check in until we turned in our key things were just perfect. The room was not big on square feet but it was not big on price either. I liked that the history of the hotel was available. The... More
