I was pleasantly surprised by this boutique hotel. The rooms are elegantly decorated with very comfy beds. We stayed on the 3rd floor and enjoyed total quiet. As a bonus we had one of the best meals ever in the hotel restaurant. I would definitely stay again.

A wonderful find. So glad they restored this charming hotel. Our room was exceptionally clean. The breakfast was real homestyle cooking. Sunday brunch was wonderful. The town is small and well kept. Safe feeling strolling, window shopping, and several restaurants to choose from. I hope to go back again.

Attending a play in Abingdon...on race weekend forced us to look a little further down the road from Abingdon to stay over night. Marion seemed a good choice since its just about 20-30 mins up the road. What a good decision. The staff at the General Francis are so helpful and kind. I wish I could remember everyone's name.

We commend the owners for bringing an historic hotel back to life. Historic features like the front desk with mail boxes behind a treat to see. Don;t miss seeing the card room and ballroom and balcony. We had a room on the front where we could see morning arrive. However, room darkening drapes blocked out most of the street lights... More

My husband and I planned a last minute getaway to visit Mt. Rogers, Grayson Highlands and White top mountain. We found a great place nearby to spend the night in Marion VA. The Francis Marion Hotel was not only close to our destination, but also offered us just what we needed for a getaway. The rooms were lovely, the staff... More

Great old hotel brought back to life. Nicely remodeled rooms, great balcony/deck overlooking the Main Street. Perfect spot to enjoy a cocktail and watch the world go by. Adjoining restaurant provides a varied unusual menue and nice bar. Dine in either the dining room or the bar. A step back to old days charm. We met the owner and he... More

We chose to stop here on our way from NJ to TN instead of one of the chains on the highway. Less than 5 minutes off of Rt 81.The front desk greeted us warmly upon arrival and was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and lovely. I would recommend and would come back again.

I booked 5-rooms for our motorcycle ride from Ohio. We could not have more pleased with the rooms, the service and the ambiance of the hotel. It was great.
