We can't say enough about how friendly the folks at the front desk were and how special both Michaels were in the dinner room. They treated us like they owned the restaurant . They treated us with the highest level of table service I have experienced in a very long time. Looking forward in three years when our daughter graduates... More

My wife and I received a gift certificate to the General Lewis and it was one of the best gifts we have ever been given. Certainly very different from the major resort and hotel chains. Don't go there expecting a giant room and monster big screen TVs. This is a charming, old school, and uncomplicated inn. We were greeted at... More

I would rate this historic Inn a perfect 10! It is very convenient to all the shops and restaurants in Lewisburg. The staff was very friendly, the room very cozy and charming. The young lady taking my reservation was very friendly, courteous and helpful. Our room was ready when we arrived. The antiques throughout the property is a walk back... More

What's good; - Convenient location to downtown shops and restaurants - Decent price Some might like: - Historically charming, it's an old inn so you feel like you stepped back in time. - It has an old front porch with rocking chairs. - They also had a county music duo playing the night we stayed here. - Authentic beds.

Staying at the General Lewis is always a treat. If you are looking for a rather mediocre stay, then stay at one of the chain hotels. The General Lewis is clean, efficient, and in the adorable town of Lewisburg...with great restaurants and shopping. Always a treat and relaxing too!!

My family and I went to the WV State Fair and needed a place to stay over night. At first, we looked at all the big chain hotels in the area, but I came across the General Lewis Inn and thought it would be fun to stay somewhere more local. Our stay was fantastic! The service was excellent, our rooms... More

We stopped in Lewisburg for one afternoon & night on a longer road trip. The General Lewis was an ideally located base for exploring the downtown area on foot, a welcome break from hours in the car. The inn is an older property furnished with antiques, so be prepared for some creaks, crannies, and character. However, the staff was great,... More

Stayed one night ( July 31 2014) when passing through Lewisburg on my way to South Carolina. The general Lewis is an old 25 room Inn centrally located in Lewisburg. It has a large front porch with rocking chairs to enjoy a late afternoon cocktail . Public areas are quiet, clean and simply furnished in keeping with an old Inn.... More

What a nice experience. We were greeted at check in by someone who was accommodating and displayed a genuine interest in our staying that the hotel. We had packed bikes to cylse the Greenbrier Trail and the hotel provided a secure covered space for us to stow our three bikes for the night. The hotel was a pleasant change from... More

Thank you very much for posting your fine review on Trip Advisor. Sometime the perfect combination of people get to stay in our "Family Suite" which is actually two rooms with "lots of beds"...

We like staying at lodging that is not the usual sterile but bland look alike chain inn. In that regard, the General Lewis Inn did not disappoint. Regal on the outside and comfortable and rustic on the inside, it is chock full of historical artifacts and the ghosts of times past. A peaceful garden sits out back. We stayed in... More

Dear Friends, Thanks so much for sharing your experience staying with us by using TripAdvisor. We appreciate knowing about the inconvenience's, too. Sometime the "charm" of the old inn makes sharing a suite with others a little difficult, especially when they have to walk through your room to get to the shared bathroom!!! Sorry! Hope you will stay with us... More
