“Historic stopover on the way to DC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The Inn is two historic homes, one of which was owned by President Grant's father-in-law. The innkeeper was friendly and helpful, but not overbearing. We reserved room 9, which had two attached bedrooms for us and our teenage boys. The rooms were incredibly homey and comfortable. One thing to be aware of: the website says the room has a private bathroom. This is technically true, in that the bathroom down the the hall is labelled 9 and we got a key to lock it, however, we had to walk past rooms 10 and 11 to get to the bathroom. This was not a problem for us at all because rooms 10 and 11 were not occupied the night we stayed at the Inn so we had the entire floor to ourselves, however, if there were other guests on the floor it would not have felt like I had a private bathroom. Also, this is an Inn, not a B&B. There is no breakfast. On the whole, this was a lovely place to stay. Be aware that Cumberland appears to be struggling. Downtown was all but abandoned.

Room Tip: If privacy is important, be sure to pick the room with the attached bathroom. Also, rooms facing th...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2015

Stayed here in rooms 9, 10 and 11 March 7-8, 2015. Everything was very nice. These three rooms are all on the second floor, and include two bathrooms. When you book all three rooms you have the whole 2nd floor to yourselves. There were 7 people in our group, including 4 children. This option was nice for us because the kids could spread out from room to room and play together. They also enjoyed the public areas of the inn. Everything was very nicely appointed. My bed was very comfortable. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Location is very convenience to anything in Cumberland or LaVale. Room 9 is actually 2 rooms with one queen bed and one full bed-- that was a nice surprise to me. I would definitely recommend the inn for a break from the hotels-- a nice change. Next time I'm going to try to schedule a spa service!

We did not stay overnight so I am not sure what that part of the inn had to offer. We just utilized the spa area. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. They had their own free off street parking. The location was very clean. The prices were very reasonable as well. I would definitely go back.

This is a lovely alternative to the cookie-cutter highway hotels. Located in downtown area, it is within walking distance to shops, restaurants, liquor store and other attractions. The hotel is two historic homes combined, and each room is uniquely decorated with upscale furnishings. We stayed in room 12, and the bed and linens were remarkably soft. The hotel has a refrigerator available to guests, as well as a common room with coffee, water and small snacks. The refinished floors, chandeliers and molding give an historic, but very inviting feel. The bathroom was small but nice. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Room Tip: Front rooms have a bit of traffic noise.

Friendly staff with really clean rooms. Plenty of attractions in walking distance. The place is nicely decorated with plenty of things to do as a couple or a family. If you need more than one room they have rooms that are connected and include jack and Jill bathrooms. Be sure to grab breakfast at Cafe Mark. Wow....

While pedaling from DC to Pittsburgh I spent a night at the Cumberland Inn and Spa. Comfort, charm, along with an attentive staff...add to that one of the finest massages I've experienced. After cycling 60 miles, mud covered head to toe, I was met at the door by the owner with a hose and towel. Checked in, 30 minute hot shower, followed by an hour of massage bliss. Thanks for everything Jackie!!

This is our first stay at this facility and we've been impressed so far. A staff member greeted us at the door and walked us up to the registration area, checked us in and then began to show us around the property. The property appears to be combination of two old townhouses that have been extensively renovated. As such, we felt as if we were guests in someone's home rather than hotel guests. This distinction is important. The property has a limited number of rooms with adjoining baths; unfortunately they were all taken when we made our reservation. As a result, we had the next best thing; a private bath...just down the hall (as if you were staying at someone's house). Our room was a decent size and tastefully decorated. The wood floors were immaculate throughout the property, but a tad slippery in socks. We appreciated the common room;a nice place to relax with coffee,tea,water,and light snacks. Our first floor room faced the street, so it was a tad noisy, but bearable. Keep in mind,this property consists of old houses with hardwood floors; you can hear inconsiderate guests banging doors and stomping around their room. Mild annoyances aside, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely another visit.
