The rooms in this beautifully restored hotel are so comfortable and quaint, We were welcomed to see the room by Joe who gave us some interesting history on the building. We arrived late and Joe was concerned to make sure we could grab a bite. Danielle managed the front desk kindly and efficiently. I would recommend this hotel for a... More

We stayed a couple of nights in this hotel as we were in town for a family related event. The restored rooms are more interesting than a cookie cutter hotel. Our room was a little tight for space, but we enjoyed the comfortable king bed, the two comfortable chairs and ottoman. The bathroom was large and clean - although the... More

We went to Marion with friends for an over night trip. Nice hotel, rooms are small but very clean and cute. The bathroom sink is really cute. The TV is the old small type but worked :). Free breakfast was ok, oatmeal packets, cereal, toast, bagels, coffee, jice, you can ask hem to make scrambled eggs. The rates were good... More

We have stayed here several times since the extensive renovation. While the hotel including rooms are still very nice it is looking a little tired. The bedside clock in our room did not work. The tv was old school with very poor picture quality. Neither flat screen nor hd. Staff is very helpful and courteous. Would stay again because this... More

My husband and I stayed at this lovely hotel after hiking Mount Rogers for two days. We were tired and thoroughly appreciated the comfortable, clean room and friendly people working at and staying at the hotel. Perfect...so much better than a chain hotel. Easy access to 81. Charming history. Bar and restaurant on site...good atmosphere. Kudos to the owners for... More

The Francis Marion is an older hotel with a look from the twenties. There's a nice renovation in progress. Our room with fairly roomy and the bed was quite comfortable with very nice linen. The TV was older and a bit blurry(not a flat screen). The halls were very nice, and gave you a real sense of the past. The... More

My husband and I were traveling south, late last evening and every hotel we checked was booked for events. The GFM had a cancelation and we took the last room in the hotel and are so happy we did. Comfortable and clean. I wanted to pack up the bed and take it home. Amy, the late night desk clerk, was... More

The hotel is well done and reasonably priced. The hallways could do with a good clean as the dust is so thick on the skirting boards on floor 4 that they look white when in fact they are a dark stain. Bed is comfortable and the facilities all work. Very nice just needs a bit more life in it and... More

We were traveling south and looking for a place to stop. Based on the good reviews, I called about 5PM to see if they had rooms available for tonight. Amy at the desk said yes, and gave me the rates. I explained that we were traveling and not sure how far we would make it, but would call to confirm... More

The General Francis Marion Hotel is a very nice boutique hotel in downtown Marion. We've not gotten to eat dinner in the restaurant, but the breakfast is very good. This is a great place to stay if you're going to explore Grayson Highland and Hungry Mother State Parks. There are several good restaurants nearby, and some nice old homes.
