This is a wonderful experience for grandchildren and will help to instill a love of history in learning minds. Miss Jan runs this little Inn with military precision....well, she is in charge of briefing at the church as well as playing the piano. On second thought, I think she orchestrates all the activities in town. She is a delight and... More

If you plan to stay in Sumter County, whether for business or pleasure this is a wonderful inn. Very spacious decade themed rooms are well furnished and very comfortable. Large bathroom, sitting space and sleeping space with room In between. You even get to meet Mrs. Jan. Call waaaaaaay ahead for reservations. There can be a waiting list.

If you are in the area of Plains or Americus, GA....please consider spending at least one night at the Historic Plains Inn! Downstairs is the Antique Mall...and this is where you are greeted and checked in by the lovely Miss Jan! The 7 hotel rooms are numbered 1920, 1930, 1940, 1950, 1960, 1970, 1980....and are decorated in the style of... More

We went to the Maranatha Baptist Church this morning to hear former President Jimmy Carter teach us. It was life changing. Then to The Cafeteria to eat a great meal, served by incredible people. After filling our souls and bellies we went to the Inn. The greeting was, as expected, warm caring and friendly. After getting instructions to what we... More

We visited Plains to attend Maranatha Baptist Church to hear Jimmy Carter teach Sunday School class. What a visit! If you stay at the Inn on Friday, Saturday or Sunday night, you get prime seating for the class - worth the stay alone! Bed was very comfortable. With the Inn being an old building, you have some squeaky floors and... More

Although beautiful and historic (and the only hotel in town) I had to give the Inn a poor rating because I couldn't get any sleep in the huge four poster canopy bed in the Presidential Suite. The bed is difficult to get into and I'm 5'7". Most annoying was the fact that the only blanket on the bed, if you... More

We only spent one night, but we're delighted and surprised at how beautiful and nearly luxurious this inn was. We stay in the 1970's room, the Presidential Suite. The room was huge and beautifully furnished. Roslyn Carter assisted in decorating the inn and her fine taste enhanced the decor. Our innkeeper, Jan, invited us to attend a "revival" at the... More

We were honored to be given the Presidential Suite in Plains, Georgia for a night. We think highly of the Carters and wished our visit was over a Sunday morning so we could have attended his Sunday School class. Suite was excellent, reminding us of the '70's. Comfortable kingsize bed with a stepping stool to climb into bed. Nice touch!... More

We stayed at the inn last weekend when we went to see Jimmy Carter teach Sunday School. It was the perfect weekend. The Inn Keepers were very helpful and accommodating, we stayed in the 1950 room which was very comfortable. I would love to go back and try each of the six rooms. We enjoyed the rocking chairs on the... More

Gorgeous inn beautifully restored. Spacious rooms with living area and incredible attention to detail. Breakfast in communal area. The Carters worked very hard to make this a wonderful experience for weary travelers. The highlight was meeting former President Jimmy Carter and hearing his Sunday School lesson. He is truly inspirational. Visiting his boyhood home ,etc were very interesting and educational.... More
