My husband & I enjoyed a relaxing weekend at The General Lewis Inn. It was our 1st visit and we would go again. Next time I would probably reserve a room on the 2nd floor to get away from the downstairs entry, lounge, dining room & restrooms, though we were not greatly bothered by noise. The rooms are simply and... More

Beautifully charming Inn with very friendly staff. Food was delicious and elegantly presented. Only complaint was the very noisy heater beside the bed, which made for a poor night's sleep. Overall, would still highly recommend the accommodations.

We have stayed here multiple times. The rooms are always clean, the staff is always accommodating. We have at least 2 meals in the dining room (breakfast and dinner) and the food and service is always top notch. No, this isn't a resort hotel with a pool, business center, 24 hr room service, etc. It is a nice, well maintained,... More

Great place to come for business, and provided rest too. Staff was extremely accommodating, food was great (and extremely reasonably priced).

The General Lewis is the perfect spot to stop when traveling west from DC (to Louisville in our case). It may not be for everyone, as it is definitely not a modern facility. I wouldn't recommend it for high energy kids or internet addicts. But if you love old, historic inns, this is truly like taking a step back in... More

I always enjoy my stay at the General Lewis. The staff makes you feel welcome from the moment you enter the inn. The rooms are always clean, the beds are very comfortable, and the food in the dining room is delicious and affordable.

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
