This hotel is locally known for its gourmet kitchen but that's something from the past. It's glory days are over and although the rooms are large and the bed and bathroom excellent, the whole atmosphere feels like something from the past.

My husband and I sought a romantic, mini-getaway for our anniversary weekend and sadly, from our "welcome" at the inn, we realized we chose the wrong spot. Although our room was cute, we never felt welcomed by the staff at the inn. They were non-responsive for quite some time upon our arrival, did not answer calls at the front desk,... More

I stayed here solo as I was heading to St Annes the following day. Overall, it as an above average- great- experience. The staff were great, helpful and polite. The room was spacious and surprisingly quiet as it was right near the door to the restaurant, and I heard little to nothing. And it was clean, which is a huge... More

The moment, you walk through the door you can smell the amazing food being prepped by in my experience, great chefs and cooks. For the Austintown atmosphere the amazing feeling of just being in the restaurant is amazing.

Overall we had a great time at the Inn. The room was very nice, and clean. It was an elegant Inn and beautiful bar/lounge area. Our only concern was during breakfast. It was included in the package we purchased, but no one explained how to order your food. We walked in the dining room and stood there, with no server... More

We stayed one night at the Woodlawn Inn. The historical building is in good condition with very high ceilings and large rooms. The staff were friendly and booked us in fairly quickly. The only negatives to our room were cosmetic issues...carpet was worn and dingy, walls could use a fresh coat of paint. Our bathroom was a good size, but... More
