i love old buildings and make a point to stay at old Hotels or Inns when possible. The history is here, but the rooms are extremely small. The 10 day cancellation policy kept me from booking until the last moment and between that and a little high room prices most likely keeps many from trying this Inn. Service was pleasant,... More

My wife and I had a very pleasant overnight stay in this beautifully preserved piece of history. It is very clean and the staff we encountered could not have been more pleasant and helpful. You won't regret the decision to stay here.

We used the General Lewis on our way to the Greenbrier. What a wonderful experience. The staff and food were great. I highly recommend it to anyone. We arrived late around 9:00 p.m. but the staff was very welcoming. We had a late dinner in the dining room and both our waitress and food were delightful.

What a treat! This inn is beautiful, historical, and clean! The young man working the front desk was outstanding. I love that we were able to go in every available room and pick the one we wanted. The rooms are furnished with antiques and add so much to the historical experience. Additionally, the common areas are simply beautiful. Being in... More

I always dislike writing a negative review but I have stayed here twice in the past 5-6 years and the last time, this past weekend, was not a good experience at all. First of all....pay close attention to their cancellation policy. If your traveling to the area for an outside adventure and weather takes a turn for the worst you... More

The comfy bed made this room a great respite after a long day outside. The bed linens and towels were above average. Very home-like, not hotel like at all. Unfortunately we were at the top of the stair well and a large group of noisy guests leaving early in the morning, and hanging out in the foyer talking while waiting... More

We were a little nervous about staying here, it was a spur of the moment change of travel plans that brought us here. The guy who took my reservation wasn't all that polite and on the 6 hour drive there I started reading reviews (had looked at this hotel several years ago) and was disturbed by the new reviews. And... More

Had a relaxing and warm stay at this very nicely appointed Inn. The best place Is the bar area by the fireplace. We received tremendous and knowledgable service from the bartender. The front desk staff was personable, accommodating and very kind. I felt very welcomed. The rooms can be a bit tight and my bathroom was very small but clean... More

Lovely old inn under new management. Getting some TLC and renovated rooms. Had breakfast - food was good but we had to wait for a special group to leave then apparently didn't have normal kitchen staff. Orders at our table and one other table had not been accurate - food sent back and waited for correct order. Meanwhile the others... More
