My husband and teenagers stayed at The Retro Suites Hotel for one night on a weekend trip to visit the Buxton National Historic Site & Museum and Uncle Tom's Cabin Historic Site in nearby Dresden. We were booked to stay in the "Cottage" suite in the new wing however, at check-in, we discovered that this suite had too few beds... More

My wife and I stayed at the Retro Suites for one night while in Chatham for a wedding. The wedding we were at wasn't at the hotel, but we heard good things and wanted to give it a try. We stayed in the Ruby Red room, which is an average sized room, with a queen bed, a desk w/chair, an... More

We stayed overnight for the first time on Saturday. From the minute I booked with Brittany to the golf after checking out - the service was excellent. Our room was beautiful and spotless and the dinner at the Chilled Cork was great. I am already on the waiting list for a room on November 5th.

It has unique design. Clean room. The price might seem a bit higher but actually it is reasonable compare to other hotel in Chatham. Each room is different. It has also very good restaurant. The breakfast is not Buffett but is perfect and delicious .

This hotel is so unique that a few sentences does not do it justice. The fun begins online where you can view all of the themed suites. Even then the pictures don't do it justice. Be sure to check out the packages. The package we select id the Golf Package. Green fees at the Willow Ridge Golf Course in Blenheim... More

This place is really cool, rooms are neat but even better is all the cool stuff in the hallways and lobby. If you are going to stay in Chatham, do yourself a favor and check this place out. The restaurant has great breakfast and you are a quick walk / drive away from all the cool places in Chatham.

We stayed one night for a wedding and loved the hotel. Each room is different (e.g. Cowboy, motorcycles, etc), very clean and quiet. Really good restaurant attached. If you golf, you can stay and play at a nearby course. Highly recommended!

The good--rooms are unique, free parking, and the staff is hard-working and kind. The bad--I would not call this a luxury hotel (as they call themselves)--it's comparable to a Holiday Inn, almost. The sheets were incredibly itchy and of poor quality, stains on the carpet, the in-room fridge smelled of dead fish. There were no black-out curtains, so the room... More
