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

We stayed at Shaw's Inn after a day at Lilyfest in Hocking Hills. This place is a real gem and has all the amenities and charm of an older hotel. It is historic and the room was wonderful. I booked two beds and we got two adjoining rooms each having a bathroom. One room had a king size bed and... More

We have prime rib and nice salad. Good service and interesting atmosphere. Each table gets complimentary rolls-quite large and warm. They were a big hit at our table! The price was as expected- not too high for a nice place. The had run out of pie that night but we were stuffed enough.

Great room. As a solo, I stayed in a corporate room. Very lovely and quiet. The breakfast which is included was superb, but the real treat was dinner. Fresh seafood in Ohio? Some of the best I've had.

I am writing this review to let you travelers know that if you are debating between this hotel and any others in the area, the choice is a no brainer. Shaw's Inn makes you feel like you stepped back into the 60's with beautiful architecture, charm, and hospitality. The hotel has an on site restaurant that serves seasonal food from... More
