“Professionally managed like a hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2010

We stayed at 5 B&B's during our 3 week vacation. Allison House Inn was easily Number 4 of the five. The innkeeper, Stuart Johnson could not have been less welcoming, gracious and interesting. We got vague directions for a dinner spot, that worked out OK. There was a seasonal thunderstorm, and when we returned from dinner, the power was out at the Inn. We kept our door open, so that the hotel type emergency lights would illiminate our room. Our inkeeper was nowhere to be seen. Finally, when the emergency lights gave out, I knocked on his door, and asked for a flashlight. He gave me his flashlight and his cat . The power came on about 11:30. We had learned that breakfast was normally at 8 AM, but it was Sunday morning and we were the only guests, so Mr. Johnston agreed to 9 AM. Breakfast the next morning was remarkably ordinary, despite the wonderful decor of the room. Mr. Johnston graced us with his presence for a few minutes. We finished the tastless "Swedish" pancakes and left without further ado.

I am very sorry for any inconvenience caused during your stay. Because of a power outage we do have lanterns in the guest rooms and I wrongly assumed you were using it and didn't want to disturb you. While you were asking for a flashlight, our cat inadvertantly escaped from our apartment due to the excitement. At breakfast time I will chat with our guests but am keenly aware that sometimes they wish to be left alone. I made a mistake in your case. Again, I apologize for any shortcomings during your stay, as our many reviews on Bed&Breakfast.com reflect as different picture. Thank yu for sharing your concerns.

We had a lovely experience staying at the Allison House Inn in Quincy, FL. The accommodations were nice and clean, the furnishings and history of the inn were interesting and the breakfasts was delicious. The innkeeper was very pleasant and informative, also. Hope to return again some day.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2008

Four of us returned from a weekend at the Allison house in Quincy Florida. When I read it on the internet it said historic town. What is should have said is the town is history and there is no place to eat except fast food restaurants. It was my husbands and my 38th aniversay and my girlfriend and her husband came with with us and were expecting a nice restaurant to eat dinner.
We walked in the door and were immediately asked for our credit cards. The owner didn't even ask our names. No tour about the house, even though Governer Allison of Florida lived there. No pamplets on where to eat or tour, etc. No living room to sit and chat. I asked for hot water for all the teabags they had out in the dining room and was refused. Soda and water in the refrigerator was the response or sherry which we don't drink on the side table. We never occupied a B and B where the owners lived on the premises, I don't know if any do or not but we never came accross any. The yard is unacommadating with a cement table and benches all lobsided and one wood bench and a swing in a tree which if I sat on would have broken the branch of the tree.
We really had a lousy experience and this is our 7th B and B.
I wouldn't recommend this place unless you are just passing through to sleep.

Perhaps the biggest problem here was noisy trucks rumbling by early in the AM. Also, we do not think we were given the room we actually reserved, although it may have been roughly equivalent.

Many B&Bs make a big deal about their breakfasts, which usually are overpriced--not that it's a separate line item-- and served too late for my taste. At Allison House, considering that the breakfast was just cold items (during the week), it could have been put out early as a buffet for folks who like to start their touring early in the day. And the coffee! Tepid brown water. The owner was showing his Minnesota roots.

To end on a positive note, the owner was friendly and helpful and decor was nice in a typical B&B way.

The Allison House Bed and Breakfast was a wonderfully romantic and quaint place to stay. The rooms were beautifully decorated. We had everything we needed. The host and his wife were delightful and helpful. We will definitely stay there when we are back in the Quincy, FL area.
