Our rooms were spacious and had every amenity that you could want. The Chocolate Bar was wonderful. We enjoyed every minute that we were there. The only thing that I would change is that we felt a hot sit down breakfast should have been included with the cost. During our stay, everyone chose the continental breakfast as I think it added cost was a bit prohibitive.

Date of stay: November 2018

Thank you for your review and thank you for your compliments about the beauty of the property, amenities, chocolate buffet, and how much you enjoyed your time here.

As indicated on our website - Life usually doesn't give you choices. The BEALL MANSION does.
Book direct and enjoy breakfast your way with either:

(a) Continental Breakfast - Simple, fast, economical—the perfect choice if you are sleeping in, on the go, prefer lighter breakfast fare, or on a budget, or

(b) Gourmet Breakfast - Treat yourself to the specialty of the house—a freshly prepared breakfast with hot entree featuring the chef's creation of the day (this multi-course breakfast even includes dessert and a wine pairing).

You Chose the Continental Breakfast option.

We're sorry that the Gourmet Breakfast and wine pairing was a little more than what you wanted to spend. The good news is that your guest rooms had 11 foot ceilings, hardwood floors, hand sewn Oriental rugs, sumptuous triple sheeted king or queen feathered bed, fireplace with gas logs (king rooms), private bathroom with Italian marble floor, whirlpool and shower, bath amenities including our BEALL MANSION artisan bath salts, HDTV/DVD with the Charter Spectrum Cable Gold Package (including premium movie and music channels and On-Demand), free Wi-Fi, fine antiques, artwork, and marble and bronze statuary throughout, 24 hour all you can eat chocolate buffet, 24 hour hot beverage service, 24 hour free soft drinks, and complimentary brandy night cap – all in a fully restored 4 star luxury mansion - and all on a discount rate not much more than you would have paid to have stayed a typical room at a same old, same old, generic hotel or motel.

Rates do vary by day of the week (SUN-MON most discounted, FRI mid-priced, SAT premium priced), time of the year, type of room, and type of rate plan/package. Why not come back and stay at a time when the accommodations including Gourmet Breakfast are more in keeping with your budget?

We genuinely value your business and hope to see you again soon!.

My wife and I loved the property. With all of the antiques and specific historical details, it adds a glimpse of what the super affluent lived in during the 19th and early 20th centuries, while giving us, as a couple, a moment of romance. A chandelier and a jetted tub in our bathroom, a fireplace close to our bed, and various chocolates in the lower level give this b & b high marks. The nightcap was an unexpected perk, while the breakfast in our room was delicious!

I loved my stay at the Beall Mansion. Walking through the doors was like stepping back in time to the Gilded Age. Though you’re well within proximity to restaurants & outside attractions, the house itself provides a very private, tranquil respite for its guests, which I definitely appreciated. Owners Jim & Sandy have not overlooked a single detail in their ownership or management. The rooms & common areas have been very tastefully restored. They both encouraged my wandering around to admire all of the lovely antiques. I felt incredibly welcome & enjoyed every chance I had to speak with them.

The bed I slept in was so comfortable. I truly returned home recharged after my stay, which is what I was after. The 24 hour hot beverage station and chocolate bar were the cherry on top for me. Who could say no to a piping hot cup of tea, a piece of chocolate, and a good night’s sleep in a Gilded Age mansion? I will definitely be going back.

My husband and I have stayed at the Beall Mansion twice now, and it's been a wonderful experience each time. The home is beautiful and is decorated with gorgeous, authentic antique pieces. We've stayed in both a 'queen' and 'king' size room, and both have been very comfortable and, again, beautifully-decorated with period pieces. Our favorite part of the queen room from our most recent stay was the fact that it had a private, walk-out veranda attached to the room.

Jim and Sandy, the owners, are very friendly and accommodating. They want to be sure your stay is perfect. We enjoyed the continental breakfast. While we're glad there was a gourmet breakfast option available to us, we preferred a light breakfast as we had a lot of running around to do. And even though it was self-serve, there were a ton of options available - yogurt, waffles, cereal, oatmeal, hard-boiled eggs, fruit, as well as orange juice, Silk + regular milk, coffee, tea, and apple cider. What more could you ask for?!

One of my favorite things about staying here? The chocolate bar which is available during all hours of your stay! :)

Was looking for a quick getaway from our hectic life to spend some quiet time with my wife as a surprise for our anniversary. Beall Mansion is wonderful gem that truly fit the bill. Jim and Sandy are very proud of their establishment and made us feel welcome and at ease. The restored mansion accomodations are great and we enjoyed our brief time there and intend to return. Took advantage of driving around Alton the was Wanted a romantic get away for my wife and myself at the last minute. We had a tough year due to a family tragedy and were really focused on us in the last year. JIM and Sandy not only next day to see the heritage. We recommend Beall Mansion as a great stay!
