Yes, it is very old and it smells old.
At one time it probably enjoyed a great reputation per the victorian decor. I stayed here for a two week business trip because my corporation had made mandatory arrangments for me to be here. However, I would not book a voluntary stay. Allthough convininet for its proximity to downtown Morristown and many local colleges there has to be a better choice. If you like old, then this is your place. The restaurant, Rods, is billed as one of the best stake houses in town, if you want to pay $30-$35 per steak dinner and I have had better. There are better choices in downtown. This is a family owned hotel and thus I feel it has fall behind the times; I would say that the "family" has lost touch as to what is reasonable and expected. This hotel is in demand for wedding receptions and sweet sixteen celebrations! I saw 8 during the time I was there. All this because it has a glass enclosed ball room.
I could not find any bright spots other than the new excercise room and location close to local colleges and corporations. My rate was corporate rate; but the going rate was close to $200 which is well over price. For the price, I will choose another location if available.
Would I stay again if I had to pay out of pocket; no.
