Classy place, nice people, even set me up with a pass for lap swimming at local rec center. Only suggestion is to have hiking maps available for Mt. Rogers, great local hiking. We drove past the trout hatchery on our way up to Mt. Rogers, but the restaurant in Troutdale is closed.

The Song of the Mountains weekends are always special at the hotel. We are very fortunate to have the historic Lincoln Theatre located thirty feet from our front door. The front balcony of the hotel is a perfect place to watch the world go by on Main Street, Marion. When the weather permits, dinner is served on the patio. Thank... More

We stayed here because we were going to a concert at the Lincoln Theatre next-door. We also had drinks In the hotel's lounge with dinner & breakfast in the hotel's dining room. Bottom line, everything was perfect! The only problem we had is the guest in the next room who was watching the final four basketball game and got overly... More

We stayed at the hotel during the Bristol Motor Speedway. All hotels in the area were $200+ a night. The Francis Marion was $99 and a great deal. The rooms were clean. The decor was beautiful and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We will definitely be back again and would recommend the hotel to anyone.

This is a beautiful old hotel in downtown Marion. Reasonably priced. Clean. The only drawback is it doesn't have coffee/tea in the rooms. Worth a short detour from your regular route. Not many dining places if you arrive in the evening. Bar on site. Food is ok.

I also used the room to dress the bride for her wedding the following afternoon, so took advantage of their 2pm late checkout.
