Nice rooms and good breakfast with your stay, I recommend to stay here ,hocking hills is 10 minutes away.the dining room is very nice but expensive, it is upper scale dinning. It is out of my budget so I eat lunch and dinner up the street( walking distance away)

Ask a person if they liked the movie and you will get some who say it was great and others say it was awful. Depends on what you like. The positive reviews are from people who like heritage sites like this one, but the problem is the site is more like an as-yet excavated archealogical site that is not being... More

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!

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
