To give a good comment on the Inn, I have to start with the food. What leaves the kitchen is so good! It is a crime not to eat here. The restaurant, just like the rest of the Inn is in a nice old style. Very comfortable and stylish. We stayed in the Monroe room. What you get is a... More

I am sure that the restaurant here is worthy of the excellent reviews. Our breakfast was served swiftly by the owner and Chef. It was fresh and delicious. The dining room is quaint and historic looking. Unfortunately, the room we stayed in was not as charming. There was a mildew and musty smell. The furnishings were old and tattered. They... More

We were in the area visiting family and hoping for a clean, basic hotel room. What we found was so much more. The Lafayette Inn is an absolute gem nestled in the quaint town of Stanardsville VA. Our room, the Wilson, was spacious by hotel standards, with comfortable sleeping, living and bath areas. It had a warm, well restored, late... More

The room was very nice, but the bathroom was not! Due to poor shower design, there was standing water and black mold along the bottom of the shower. When we sent feedback, as requested, our comments were ignored.

We were spending two days hiking in Shenandoah National Park and decided to stay here for the night. It is close to the Swift Run Gap entrance to the park. The building has been an Inn for most of its 170 year history and the difficulty of maintaining such a property shows on the outside. But the rooms and restaurant... More

My husband and I were looking for a lunch spot after leaving the Shenandoah National Park so I googled nearby restaurants. The Lafayette Inn popped up. It had great reviews so we decided to give it a try. So glad we did!! It was a Sunday afternoon around 2:00 ish. Much to our delight we had just missed the Sunday... More

If you like gourmet hamburgers, The Lafayette Inn probably has one to enthrall you. The wide selection features almost every imaginable combination - served with Brie, Tomato and Sour Cream, or the Normandy Burger with herbed cheese (my choice) or any of the regional flavors one might encounter on a trip around the US. You can choose an alternative of... More

Unique stay at the 1840s hotel. What is most interesting about this building is that it is about 80% original. The staff is very friendly. The room is large with a sitting area. The restaurant is excellent and the chef is very friendly and interacts with the patrons. This is a unique place to stay and dine.
