“My start was very relaxing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

I visited the Beall several years ago and my stay was just a nice this time. I had the no frills package and stayed in the cheapest room for budget reasons. It was still very nice and service was great. I'm saving so I can go all out next time.

Just spent our 25th wedding anniversary at the Beall Mansion. Jim and Sandy really do take great care of their guests. They thought of everything right down to ear plugs for a snoring spouse! The house is amazing! The King sized feather bed was so comfortable and who can resist 24 hours of chocolate. We felt right at home wandering the house at our leisure and Jim sure knows his Alton history. We happened to be spending the last Saturday of the month in Alton so got to enjoy the block party which was awesome!

If you are looking for very special accommodations, this is the place. The Beall mansion is a lovely, historic bed & breakfast offering several pricing options including full gourmet breakfast (served in your room or in the formal dining room-your choice) or a continental breakfast, whirlpool tub, private balcony, luxious robes & slippers, champagne upon arrival, chocolate bar and even brandy for your final nightcap. The Innkeepers Jim & Sandy go out of their way to make sure your room and stay meet all expections. I highly recommend the Beall Mansion for your next Alton getaway!

Our wedding, as well as our stay at the Beall Mansion WAS truly elegant. Jim and Sandy have restored this home beautifully and offer wonderful service and amenities, such as a gourmet breakfast in bed, a chocolate bar, and a heart shaped whirlpool bath for two in our room. You really feel pampered, and can truly relax and "get away from it all", while being in a town with lots of venues, including great restaurants (we ate at Tony's), a casino, riverfront picturesque views and several historic places to visit.

Room Tip: See website for pictures of each room. They all appear to be wonderful.

Our stay at the historical Beall Mansion was truly wonderful. We spent the first night of a four day getaway along the Mississippi River there and we wish we could have stayed longer. Jim and Sandy’s hard work, and attention to historical detail, has created an exceptional place to stay and one that really has to be experienced to fully appreciate.

My wife and I have celebrated out last two anniversaries at the Beall, and may well continue to do so for years to come. Welcoming, elegant, relaxing, and enjoyable in every way. Antique décor, gourmet chocolate bar, champagne on arrival and evening brandy are standouts. A+
