I went into the the Temperance House 8/17/16 to indulge in their special that they had advertised on their website- Prime Rib Special. Low in behold the bartender said they do not offer that anymore. Disappointed, I had to order something different so I ordered Chicken Oscar :( Big disappointment there was very little crab for the price. Today, I... More

Just went for a drink, but stayed awhile due to the great staff and clientele. They have a good selection of beers and a plethora of liquor to make drinks. I only went for a drink, but had an app as well. Mozz triangles are delish and homemade. First time there, so I wanted to try something I was familiar... More

The Temperance House is the perfect place to host family, friends, and members of the wedding party for weddings taking place in nearby venues. We filled all 13 lovely rooms with wedding-goers who were very happy to be together in an intimate setting where every need was met. Melissa and her staff presided over Friday evening's elegant and delicious rehearsal... More

We hosted our wedding party and friends here, and I couldn't have been happier on how well it went. The staff, especially Melissa, went over the top to accommodate us and coordinate rooms/rehearsal dinner, and an after party. They have a laid back but in control attitude which is a great change from the other hotel's I've dealt with in... More

The hotel was quite charming. The room was very clean and quite comfortable. Great location near taverns, restaurants, and shopping. The hotel employees made me feel right at home. The hotel offers live music with local talent and continental breakfast. Parking was accessible.

We were already in the area but decided to stay another night, total spontaneous decision. We had eaten dinner at the Temperance House Inn the night prior, while staying at another hotel. The staff were more than exceptional, and the food was superb. While we were waiting on our dinner this particular evening, we asked about the lodging portion of... More

Found the hotel met our expectations. The hotel was up to date and very accommodating. Staff friendly and helpful. Dining was good but hampered a bit by the facility. The place is a bit too cut up given the uses today - but actually it lends old world charm! Parking on the street was a bit touchy but since we... More

We found this room through Trip Advisor and thought it looked good. Until we got there. The place itself is cute from the outside. The mattress on the bed was like sleeping on a board, the noise from the bar carried up to our room way into the night and the window air conditioner was so loud that every time... More

Cannot say enough about the food, service, and overall quality of this place. Me and my wife spent three nights there during our wedding weekend and it was the best experience. The food is outstanding and the service impeccable, each and every staff person was accommodating to all of our friends and family. The large banquet room was perfect for... More

We were in town for family wedding and enjoyed our accommodations. Loved the furniture in Topaz room. Staff were very helpful and welcoming. Enjoyed the tavern. Our only suggestion for improvement is the continental breakfast. We ended up going out each morning for breakfast and the brunch was not available on Sunday while we were there due to private parties.
