We are all struggling to cope with the problems a pandemic brings. Joseph Ambler Inn is no exception. Of course, they still have their beautiful grounds and landscaping, historic buildings, hard working staff. Their restaurant seems quite popular, and this is for a good reason, I think. Great food at reasonable prices. But, the amenities suffered. We were there for two nights and cleaning was not offered. We had overflowing trash (from 3 people, breakfast, etc.) with no obvious way for us to empty it ourselves. Plastic cups and ice bucket liner were not replaced. We did get a basket of towels and shampoo in front of our door in the late afternoon. Each day the same “grab and go” breakfast was a chilled granola bar, a cold strawberry pastry, a cold, dry scone, a plastic knife, strawberry jam, butter, and, on one day, a napkin. Keurig coffee was available in the lobby. There was no caffeinated Black tea in the lobby or restaurant. Eating this on the bed with no plate was cumbersome. On check-in I asked about what time the breakfast was ready. She said I could come any time. Not sure how early or late, but it wasn’t worth it. We are all suffering; I get it. I was hoping for more understanding via hospitality from Joseph Ambler.

This was our third visit to the Inn, but our first stay in this area of the Inn (Conrad Room 108) We have previously stayed in the Allman suite and the Thomas Moore Section. The Inn itself is lovely and the grounds are beautifully maintained. Great place for couples and peaceful. Keep in mind this is historic so if your offended by imperfections in the paint, or cracks in ceilings this isn’t necessarily the location for you. (The Conrad room seems more dated than the room we stayed at in the other building). I personally don’t mind the cosmetics as it adds to the charm. However, despite this we did some encounter negatives during our stay. First upon entering our room the smell of mildew and/or mold was overwhelming. I noticed others have had this issue with this particular room based on reviews. The smell was so overwhelming that I had to spray lysol. Cleanliness was also an issue and we made the decision to wipe down the bathroom and high touch point areas ourselves. Upon arrival home all our clothes smelled like mildew just from being in the room. In addition there was literally spiders all over the room. The toiletries left in the room hadn’t moved in so long a spider took up residence and I even found a spider in the fridge. In every corner there were webs, webs above the bed, and spiders. Even behind the headboard because I felt the need to check because I didn’t want things crawling on me at night. This just led me to discover inches of dust on the floor and more spiders. We enjoy coming to this Inn but I was just surprised at the lack of cleanliness on this visit and if the room was cleaned/prepped properly before our arrival I am terribly surprised the smell wasn’t noticed by housekeeping and perhaps a fan or dehumidifier run. Next time I will most certainly speak to the front desk and request a new room if conditions aren’t up to the standards we’ve already encountered at the Inn instead of sticking it out. We will probably be back but I’d recommend avoiding this particular room especially if you have allergies.

We stayed here while on a business trip. This hotel (or is it a bed and breakfast?) is cute. Small. Clean. Colonial decor. Check-in was quick and painless. Parking on-site. No elevator, so be prepared to carry luggage up 2 flights of stairs. Rooms are small, but modern. Two queen beds side-by-side with maybe 6 inches separating them. Large closets. Very comfortable room. The room is bright, even at night, and could use room-darkening shades. The carpet was new, and smelled new (which is good!) The bathroom is small with a pedestal sink and dim lighting. FYI, women need large vanity tops and bright lighting to do their make-up and hair. Beds were comfortable. There is a large seating area just outside the rooms. The restaurant was located on the first floor of our building, so we didn’t have to walk in the cold. We ate dinner twice at this restaurant and both times was delicious! Amazing dinner! Go for dinner! The “free” breakfast was horrible. Everything was cold. Eggs, Bacon, French toast, etc was all cold. Only the coffee was good. We only ate breakfast once. We went to a local diner on the second day. Sorry! Breakfast is horrible! Even if it is free (or included in the price) a cold breakfast is not fun. We would stay here again, and have dinner here again. Dinner was really really good!!!!

I had a fantastic two night stay at the Joseph Ambler Inn. Check-in was quick and easy, and the staff are so, so lovely. It has a lovely, quaint feel to the place, with rooms found in different outbuildings. The room itself was very nice, although starting to look a little tired in places. Breakfast was beautiful, as was the two meals we had here!

I have stayed twice here, each time in a different cottage but with the same experience. I was on a writing retreat looking to hole myself up with no distractions, so if you are there for a wedding you'll probably have a better time. The pros: The rooms are lovely, comfortable and unique. Showers are clean and modern. I love the little nooks in each guest house- lots of living room areas to lounge in or work in a comfy chair. The staff couldn't be better- from the front desk to the bartender, everyone was lovely. The cons: Noise. The first room I was in was over the restaurant, so the diners, the piano player, the service was all heard clearly and loudly. The second time I stayed in the Roberts house over the meeting space where cocktail hours were also heard loudly and constantly. In both rooms, the walls are very thin and I could hear the television in the next room, the conversations, the sneezes... Also the fitness room is from the 1970s. A Universal that is respectable, and one treadmill that barely got up to a trot. Luckily there's a Planet Fitness and LA Fitness 5 minutes away, and the Inn is next to a great running trail that runs along Rt 202.

I am so sorry that you encountered some disturbances during your stays with us. We do have some events happening in the houses during regular business hours. I have a nice solution for you and hope you will give us another chance. We have the Thomas Wilson house which is situated across the grounds and is completely separated from the rest of the hotel. It is VERY quiet and there are never any events happening in the common areas. Oh and thank you for the comments about our fitness facility. It is now going under a transformation to update the equipment. Without constructive criticism we cannot strive to give the best customer experience. All the best and see you soon!
