We went here for the 1st & only time on Thanksgiving Day for dinner. A waitress dropped a loaded tray right after we sat down. Broken dishes were everywhere. Another waitress plopped her tray in front of a couple that had just sat down & said 'excuse me, this will only take a minute'. It was noisy, the tables were... More

This restaurant and hotel are known to many, not only for its many years of continuous operation, but more importantly for its excellent restaurant and boutique Victorian hotel. Rooms vary widely for consideration and range from Jacuzzi Suites to cozy corner rooms with views of downtown or the square. The drinks at the bar are very well crafted and their... More

I think this was an old hotel, downsized to a B&B. Very quaint. Comfortable large room. Large king bed with a nice firm mattress. The TV is small compared to today's standard, but it's adequate. Good free Wifi service. Looking forward to the breakfast tomorrow.

Shaw's Inn has the comfort of a hotel and the quaintness of an inn. Every little detail-- from the room to the complimentary breakfast, was perfect. My boyfriend and I had such a great experience altogether. We will definitely be returning very soon!

Our room was stunning! Hot tub in room, with sitting area, mini fridge and very clean! Price was great for the value. Plus a great restaurant, with amazing food! Must have homemade cimamon rolls. Nice bar with great appetizers.

This is my second visit and since I was with my husband, I went for a larger room. The corporate rooms are idea for a short solitary traveler but a bit small for a couple. The Tuscany room was great and there is even a guest lounge down the hall. We traveled with another couple who booked the Yellow Room.... More

When we first arrived at Shaw's my wife was not sure I made a good choice. The hotel didn't have the room style we wanted for our stay but we could stay the first night in the Venice room and move to the Zurich room for the rest of the stay. The Venice is a large room with a jetted... More

I had the good fortune to stay here in early September. After staying at a Best Western and Hampton inn, this really was a welcoming experience. I appreciate that it might not be everyone's cup of tea, but as an Englishman visiting the United States I felt quite at home. It is quite an eccentric place, the food is pretty... More

No flexibility - even though "chef" was in. Could not get a get a dairy-free or meat-free breakfast except oatmeal. Potato dishes are made in advance so I could not order plain fried potatoes. Waitress argued back when I said pecans were moldy.

My car got hit in the parking lot. The hotel service told me I could make a police report but they're not going to do anything about it. I was also told it happens all the time. Cars are getting broken into and stolen. Nothing they can or will do about it. If you are going to eat make sure... More
