My mom & I headed down to Sweet Briar College for a gathering her class was having. I would estimate that 30 classmates and spouses/guests attended AND stayed at the Florence Elston Inn. The staff could not have been friendlier. The rooms were large, clean and comfy. It felt like we had stepped back in time to 1973~~in a good... More

We spent two nights at the Elson Inn on the campus of Sweet Briar College. We stayed there because our son was participating in the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. One of the benefits of staying here is that it is very peaceful and quiet and has lovely grounds to explore by car or foot. The room was sufficiently... More

We are staying at The Elston Inn and it is terrific. Charming rooms, a comfortable lounge area and an extremely friendly and curteous staff. This hotel is nestled on the campus of the beautiful Sweet Briar College and it is quiet and vet comfortable. I am very much enjoying our visit and will return shortly.

Nestled on the beautiful Sweet Briar College campus, this charming & small Inn/Conference Center has the feel of a bed and breakfast. It offers spacious and comfortable rooms reasonably priced. Inexpensive meals are available on campus and the staff is very friendly & accommodating. Not much to do in this sleepy one traffic light town, but there are no shortage... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Elston Inn. The staff was extremely friendly and polite. The room was clean and comfortable. The morning breakfast was a perfect start to the day. The grounds were beautiful and we wish we had more time to explore the surroundings. It was also in a perfect location for our needs during our trip.... More

I'm a SBC alum so I stay at the inn every chance I get - which, regrettably, is not often. This trip I spent the night en route to a work-related conference. It is a comfortable, quiet little inn on Sweet Briar's stunningly beautiful campus. Rooms are spacious with lots of amenities (two sinks, coffee maker, frig, microwave, tea &... More

Our daughter attends Sweet Briar College and we love to stay at the Inn when we drive her to college. Our room this trip has a king size bed, fridge and microwave. The room is very large with a comfortable chair and sofa for relaxing. The staff is great .
