“Peaceful Stay in a Peaceful Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

My husband and I booked a two night stay at the last minute. We originally planned to stay at a chain hotel but it was booked due to a golf tournament. So glad we couldn't get a reservation because the General Lewis Inn was perfect for us. Rooms met our extreme cleanliness standards and the linens were soft. Staff was pleasant and friendly. We enjoyed relaxing in the back garden during the evenings. A short walk to downtown provides specialty shops, bakeries, antique shops and fine dining.

During the days, we rode our bicycles on the Greenbrier River Trail. Very scenic and trail is well groomed.
We’re watching the weather forecast to determine if we can return next weekend.

What a wonderful place to stay. The family and staff were extremely nice and attentive. The room was very comfortable and had all the amendities you would need (even have handicapped accessible rooms). A big plus is that the Inn also has a great restaurant that has a very complete menu. The evening meal was especially good had to commend the "Chef", she prepared an excellant dish that was comparable to the meals we had just had in Washington D.C's finer establishments. We stayed here 20 years ago and must say it is still a great place. Another plus is the location that it is close to downtown and shopping. The last thing to say is that cost is very reasonable just check out their website and you will see. If your in the area the General Lewis Inn is a must place to stay.

Room Tip: It is a two level Inn, so if stairs are an issue, request 1st floor. Parking can be an issue as the...

We had a really good experience here. Our room was great - very large, very nicely designed and kept up. The service was fabulous - extremely helpful and personal; they went out of their way to help. We give it our strongest recommendations. Can't comment on dinner as we had it elsewhere.

The only location I stay during my frequent trips to Lewisburg, West Virginia. The family of owners and staff welcome you with open arms. Each room is unique and comfortable with individual amenities, not a "rubber stamp" space! Cleanliness exceeds expectations and the charm of the Living Room and Dining rooms cannot be re-created in today's environment. The location to the downtown shopping district (a miniature Ann Arbor) cannot be surpassed.

For the past 12 years we have traveled to Lewisburg dozens of times. Having discovered the GL during our first visit we would never want to stay anywhere else. The ambiance there is warm and sympathetic to anyone having an interest in the history of the nation and the staff are always welcoming and friendly.

Not only do we stay at the inn, we have, many times, booked meals there with friends from nearby communities and had a wonderful time. After traveling thousands of miles around the world and having stayed at scores of hotels, motels, and inns, we are always keen to come back to the comforting environment and the good people there who have, over the years, become our friends.

Room Tip: You can see images of the rooms on their site. Book ahead as they tend to fill up on the weekends.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the General Lewis Inn. It's location makes it easy to explore downtown Lewisburg, which is very much alive with interesting shops and restaurants even in winter. Our room in the Inn was clean, well equipped and comfortably furnished with period furniture - a unique room in a unique inn. Staff was friendly and helpful, and breakfast in the Inn's restaurant was great.

We came here to get away for a night, the hotel is great! It's so cute and cozy. It's old and antiqued. It isn't the Hilton, so if that's what you're expecting stay somewhere else more modern. The food was excellent at dinner, our steaks were cooked to perfection. Everything is super clean. I would definitely stay here again!
