Just returned from a two night stay at Westside Guest House and it was wonderful. My little sister goes to college at Miami Ohio, which is where one of the owners also teaches, but was looking to get away from campus for my visit. I'm so thankful I found this place! Rates are ridiculously reasonable, Cheryl was very friendly and easy to get a hold of, and the whole place was very comfy. We stayed in the residence and shared the room with two twin beds. I would love to stay in the master suite next time, especially if we have more time to spend at the house. The extra little room could be quite romantic or a fun place to read. The beds were very comfy and the linens were very thick and cozy, exactly how we like them. Wifi was great and the choices of coffee, tea and juice…
The Westside Guest House was great! My husband and I were in Richmond for a family reunion and picked the Guesthouse because it was only blocks from my Aunt's house. She had a houseful and we were so happy that we had our little home away from home to return to after all the festivities and activities. Bed was very comfortable and the room stayed nice and cool at night. The bathroom was large and clean. We loved the snacks provided and owner was very nice to accomodate my request for skim milk. Would definitely return if we have another reunion in Richmond.
My husband & I just returned home after staying in The Hideaway at the Westside Guest House. We truly felt just as comfortable as we would at our own home. The owner has thought of everything! There were snacks, drinks, coffee & toiletries in the bathroom (a wonderful surprise, considering I forgot my toothbrush). We are planning a trip back during our vacation, to visit family in the area, & we're hoping to stay in the bigger rental. I wish we had discovered this place years ago!
We stayed in the morning sun suite. The suite has a nicely decorated living room, clean well stocked kitchen, sparkling bathroom and good sized bedroom with a very comfortable king size bed. The owner was very nice but seemed a little frazzled and unprepared for our stay but may have been due to having had another couple in the room the night before us. The entry to this room is on the side of the house and the steps may be hard to navigate for anyone with walking issues. The drinks and snacks in the kitchen were great and the chocolates on the table were a nice touch. The door to this room is very close to 2 other doors. We heard someone coming in another part of the house at about 2:30 in the morning and thought someone was breaking in!! Besides that it was very quite. The…
I think the fact that I slept better here than I do at home is a sign of how wonderful this place is. It was fully equipped with the kind of amenities I value, including good tea and coffee. Heck, we lucked out and got fresh flowers left by the previous guest. I shared the house with two other people and we had more than enough space for privacy and for common areas. The location for those at Earlham College or School of Religion is ideal. The only negative I experienced was that the Internet was occasionally sticky and slow, though it always healed after reboot. While this is almost something like a secret I'd love to keep, I decided a public thank you to Cheryl was well-deserved and that I should just book early.
We just stayed at the Westside Guest House this past weekend, in the Morning Sun Suite. This place is such an amazing find in so many ways. The house itself is situated within walking distance to the Earlham campus, and across from a park. It's a really nice neighborhood for taking a walk. The amenities are plentiful and we felt so welcomed. Cheryl is a delight to work with and has really thought of everything, from appliances you might need (e.g. iron, hair dryer), to a well-equipped kitchen that includes a Keurig coffee maker and a variety of coffees, tea and hot chocolate, cereal, snacks, and chocolates. We really could relax and have a space to be in that felt like home. Very luxurious. I wish we would have found this place earlier in our son's time at Earlham. We…
The Guesthouse is very comfortable and they have thought of everything -- great snacks and dinner food based on special dietary regulations, comfortable beds, a really nice, big, clean bathroom. There are DVDs with the tv, the kitchen is fully stocked. Everything is clean and nice and new -- the carpet is great (no "icky" feeling under your feet). They seem to have thought of everything (except maybe a small mirror outside the bathroom wd be nice to put on makeup while your companion is showering). We checked in and out early, which was no problem. We found the town of Richmond kind of depressing, tho this was in one of the best neighborhoods.
I stayed in the Hide-away one bedroom apartment for 10 weeks while on a clinical rotation at Reid Hospital. The house has a great location in a residential area with a park right across the street. The bed was super comfy and the apartment felt like home. Cheryl and Mickey were easy to get ahold of if you needed anything. The patio was my favorite place to sit outside, read, and enjoy the summer weather. This is a great place for a long or short term stay. If I ever need a place to stay in Richmond I'll definitely be back.
I stayed at the Westside Guest House for the month of June 2012 as I was starting a new job in Richmond but had not yet found a home. it was a wonderful experience! The units are pet friendly and it is directly across from a quiet park, which was great for taking the dogs for walks. The unit itself was very spacious and comfortable. The rooms are stocked with cereals, coffees, candies, and even a pizza for your first night! They provide access to dishes, pots and pans, linens...everything you need for an extended stay. The king bed was extremely comfortable and there was plenty of storage space. I highly recommend it as a place to stay.
I was impressed by the manager/owner's communication and helpfulness. I am hoping my daughter decides to go to Earlham next year so that I can make this another home away from home when I visit! :)
