If you are going to be in Plains to see the Jimmy Carter sites, consider spending the night at the Plains Historic Inn. We loved it. The Inn has been carefully restored and updated. All the rooms are themed by decade. We stayed in the 1920s room. One guest bragged about being in the Presidential Suite. My wife and I... More

This charming property was renovated by President and Mrs. Carter (in addition to others, I am sure). they have done a great job. If in the area to see the historic sites or to hear the President teach Sunday school, this is your best option. Friendly staff, nice rooms, and a great porch over looking downtown.

This place is amazing. Each room is a different decade theme. We rented multiple rooms for our kids, and one for us and everyone just kept going back and forth exploring all the cool things in each room... breakfast is included. Theres not much to do in Plains, but this is a cool alternative to staying in Americus. You can... More

We had a great stay in the Plains Inn. When we called to reserve a room we were offered our choice of the 7 suites. We decided on the 1920s room and were not disappointed. It was beautifully decorated in period pieces and overlooked Main Street. You do need to run the water a loooong time to get hot water,... More

Amazing that you can stay in a place like this, with the history attached for such a reasonable amount. £60 is such good value for the quality, with a suite like this in London being unaffordable to many. We stayed in the presidential suite, there are cheaper rooms which we looked in and they looked great too. Breakfast was self... More

The Plains Historic Inn presents as"bed and breakfast". We were a party of 8, renting a total of 4 rooms. The decor was absolutely beautiful. Each room was unique and decorated according to a different decade. The place was filled with beautiful antiques. My bed was very comfortable. The next morning, all 8 of us reported having a cold shower... More

Though we did not stay in Plains but were passing through to FT Benning, we walked around the small town. This Inn is a beautiful place to stay for a relaxing vacation. WE were allowed to view the rooms, and then browse the shops below.

We booked our room sight unseen. What luck! Staying in Plains, a very small town gave us a great feel for what Jimmy Carter and his Presidency was all about. There are only 7 rooms in the Inn so we were lucky to get one. We chose the 1940's as it had two twin beds and all the others have... More
