Excellent hotel to stay. It is wonderfully close to campus, clean and has a fairly well stocked kitchen. Street parking is easy and i have already made a date with the owner to have it again for the next reunion. it can be cosy for the folks staying there, but you can also have after-event reunion parties for friends!

The fact this place is still a secret, is a shame, but kind of nice since it's always been available when I've been able to get to Richmond. This is my sister's last year at Miami University (about 45 minutes away) but hopefully she'll get a job within a reasonable driving distance or I'll drag the husband down next time!... More

My parents and I were visiting my daughter at Earlham College and stayed at the Westside Guest House. It was relaxing and close to campus. We appreciated having the kitchen to prepare meals. I will recommend this to everyone traveling to Richmond. Thank you!

Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review about your stay. It was our pleasure to have you and your parents stay with us -- and I know your daughter was probably delighted to enjoy some of Mom's cooking just a few blocks from campus! More

Spacious apartment and bedroom, well appointed kitchen stocked with all the things you normally have to (irritatingly) have to go and get. The night time silence, luxuriously comfy bed meant wonderful sleep. Had friends over after dinner and the sitting room was convivial and easy for socializing. Fully recommended.

It was a pleasure to meet you and your son, Muoi, and I'm so glad you felt at home in our guest house. I've traveled in other countries as well, so I know how hard it can be to feel at home when you're far from all that is familiar. I've tried to keep that in mind in setting up... More

Our family stayed in the Morning Sun Suite over the Christmas holidays while visiting family in the area. We had our two dogs (30 lbs. a piece) with us as well.

Spent a Friday night in the large apartment while visiting my daughter at Earlham College. Location was perfect and accommodations were great. I would visit again. The proprietor, Cheryl, was present and very helpful.

Just returned from a two night stay at Westside Guest House and it was wonderful.
