I was traveling with a service dog and our stay coincided with a crowded reunion. They assigned all of the first floor rooms to the revelers and left me to climb 2 flights of stairs to get to my assigned room. Granted, I didn't tell the desk that I had problems walking, but the service dog (which I told them... More

We have stayed at the General Lewis Inn several times over the past 25 years, including during our honeymoon in October, 1985. And several times when passing through, we have made it a point to eat there. We love the experience of the environment of the past, the history, and the town, which we have toured a couple times. We... More

On the night of our stay, the hotel was less than one-half full and the rate for two persons seemed the same regardless of room. Yet we were placed up the difficult stairs in a room that was teeny and inconvenient compared with some other available rooms -- there was an invitation to look at any room with an open... More

My husband and I stayed at the General Lewis Inn after researching on Trip Advisor, looking for an local inn rather than a chain. The building is beautiful and we were thrilled when we approached. Our greeting was less than warm. We were signed in very "efficiently" and given our key. Nothing that made me feel the least bit welcome,... More

An attractive, atmospheric place to stay. There are historic artefacts in the public space, and antique furniture everywhere, but the bedroom we had was spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was a bit small, inevitably with a conversion, but you soon got used to it. The hotel now has free Wifi, which wasn't apparent when we booked. We had breakfast in... More

Greenbrier County West Virginia is all about lush scenery, timeless villages and towns, hiking, biking swimming, horseback riding, canoing or just staring into lovely spaces. In my opinion an exceptional place to stay is the General Lewis Inn in the village of Lewisburg. For those searching for a hotel with atmosphere not kitsch, consider this understated value. My extended family... More

It would be hard to forget this delightful historic inn that matched the charming town of Lewisburg, WV. Located in the heart of the historic district there are many shops and restaurants a short distance away. The weather was very comfortable dispite the locals calling it a "heat wave." Truly a hidden gem.

Always wanted to stay here, finally was able to enjoy a night with husband & grown boys. Inns & B & B's often not appreciated by the younger generation but I heard no complaints. We had a wonderful 24 hours including the best dinner of the three day trip.
