“great stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

My wife and I stayed their last weekend. We planned to go to the hot air balloon festival in Readington NJ and visit some of the local wineries. The accommodations were excellent, clean well kept room. Staff was very attentive and gave us great restaurant suggestions. Breakfast were very good. If you like B&B's you will want to put The Lafayette on your list.

My wife learned that she had to fix a grant application she had emailed earlier. The lap top they loaned didn't work (wrong program) so the owner let her use the office computer. Much appreciated. Good service; excellent breakfasts in a nice dining area. Beds were comfortable. Near Lafayette College. Easton is a neat town to drive around, and this inn is a fine place to stay.

My husband and I spent the 4th of July long weekend at the Lafayette Inn in Easton. This is part of an annual short vacation that we so enjoy.

Once again we enjoyed the hospitality and great breakfasts that the Inn offers. The staff is friendly and helpful and our hosts accomodated every need.

We were happy to find that downtown Easton has opened new restaurants and shops since our visit last year and that our old favorites were going strong as well.

It happend to be Heritage weekend in Easton and we were impressed by how much the Saturday farm market has grown and the variety of goods offered.

We look forward to returning next July to stay in comfort with our "friends" at the Lafayette Inn.

As 300 year old Inns go, this inn is excellent. However, despite many, many obvious renovations, new appointments, and furnishings, there are some drawbacks. Third floor walk-up is tough, so don't book one of those rooms if you are in the least physically limited. Room 31 had some serious water leak in the past, and attendant mold in the corner between the wall and shower. Otherwise, the room was immaculately clean. Room was exceptionally quiet, and the bed was dream worthy. Shower was great. Toilet paper left a lot to be desired, pun intended. Breakfast reception and food was superb and the best experienced on this 14 day journey in the Northeast. There are several excellent restaurants nearby, and the one reception recommended was superb plus within walking distance.

Room Tip: Avoid the third floor if you have physical problems. Otherwise, it is fine.

Just spent 2 nights at the Lafayette Inn with my daughter and sister. 5 years ago we took over the Inn for a family wedding and rehearsal dinner. We love everything about the Inn and we return at least once a year. The breakfasts are wonderful, the rooms cozy, the living room beautiful with cake and drinks at all hours. There is just something about how you are welcomed and treated during your stay that makes us want to escape to Easton from DC! We spent the day in Bethlehem, PA with the Moravian Bookstore, McCarthy's tea house and a fantastic knitting store. And don't forget American Hairlines where you can schedule all kinds of spa services. And great restaurants in Easton - we love the River Grill. Sigh - we want to schedule our return visit!

This Inn has so much potential. Nice location, nice house. Just attention to details in the room was over looked. Unfortunately, there were stains on the furniture and rug - a very big turn off. Paint was in desperate need of some touch ups. Linens were clean, the room was quiet. The staff was friendly. Breakfast was delicious. Nice hot shower. We were there for a very short stay (late check in and early check out) and we were comfortable enough. While our stay was nice, there is room for improvement with the overall appearance of the room. Stayed in room 22 - two double beds.

The inn is very charming and cosy, and the staff friendly and helpful. It's a huge old house (formerly part of Lafayette College) located on a beautiful tree-lined street. I love the wine and cheese offered at 4:00 PM in the lounge area. They also have a refrigerator full of sodas, a coffee/tea maker and fantastic cake. The sunlit breakfast room is lovely. The regular rooms are not gigantic (you can upgrade to more expensive suites), but they are comfortable and clean. The staff makes excellent recommendations for places to dine, and there are a few bars/restaurants within walking distance. Definitely one of the best B&Bs I've ever stayed in, and I've been all over the world. I have a few beefs, one of which is I wish they would make omelets (they do Belgian waffles), as the only eggs available seem to be hard-boiled. It would also be nice if the lounge refrigerator had some more healthful options, such as bottled water or juice. Otherwise, I can't think of anything negative to say. Room charges are comparable to Hampton Inn-type places, and the experience is much more homey and hospitable. I stay there often as I have relatives nearby; I would recommend to anyone traveling to this area.

Room Tip: Some rooms only have showers, so if you like a bath as I do, make sure you get a room with a tub. La...

LafayinnBB, Owner at Lafayette Inn, responded to this review, June 29, 2013
We thank you for your comments and suggestions - you must have stayed at the inn during a weekend when we do quiche, French toast, pancakes or other hot entrees. During the weekday we do make omelets to order as well as scrambled eggs and the Belgian Waffles. In addition to providing bottled water in the room we will also look at adding bottled water into the lounge refrigerator as one of the many beverages available to our guests.
