Straight out of a ghost story. Beautifully furnished. Loved the atmosphere. The staff was friendly. Dinner in the hotel restaurant was good, fine selection of liquors and beer. The room was oozing history. Will be back with the family.

Great place to stay in a historic hotel. Updated so it provides everything a newer hotel provides. Within walking distance of everything you need. Only negative is the elevator is slow, but it does work. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room was large and well furnished. Nice and quiet. This is our 4th stay and have never been disappointed.

I love the Historic Plains Hotel and stay there every chance I get. Unlike today's cookie cutter hotels, the Plains has a wonderful atmosphere and shows you what hotel accomdations were like before the chains ruined the experience. Large rooms and great rates.

The hotel was a little quieter than I thought; that's a good thing since I was afraid it would be too noisy to get a good night's sleep. I had to wait quite a while for the hot water to make it up to my third floor room but once I learned to wait a while, it was OK. Overall,...

While the Plains Hotel is not awful, it is also not the nicest place I've stayed. The staff is welcoming and helpful. The hotel is old, and the rustic decor in the lobby is great, including a Molesworth hanging from the ceiling. The rooms leave a lot to be desired. The carpet is old and dirty. The towels were threadbare....
