Every one was so nice. We got there Thursday night and they only had room with full bed. Room was small but it was awesome . We had dinner at there restaurant and it was one of the best meals on are trip. Very nice location to relax and take walk around town. Porch was great to relax. We liked it so much we stayed an extra night. Very nice place to stay!

Room Tip: If you like sleeping with window open the cross walks beep all night. With window shut really can...

Wonderful staff! Quaint, charming historic hotel. Plenty of parking. Great front porch and shops.Rooms decorated nicely. A bit on the small side but it is a historic hotel after all. Be sure to check out the Amish deli near the interstate also. Great bread and goodies!

What a great review. Thank you! We do love how well the College takes care of our grounds. The tulips are amazing and we enjoy coming to work to look at them. We are getting ready for our summer plants to come and be just as beautiful. We hope to see you soon! Maybe next time you could enjoy a college led tour!

The room was small because of the era it was built, but comfortable and updated. The staff at the hotel and restaurant were very nice. There are shops and restaurants located nearby. It was a nice area to explore.

Thank you for your review. We do understand that some of our guest rooms are smaller than an average size guestroom. We like to think of ourselves as a big house rather then a hotel. All the rooms are uniquely shaped and furnished by the students of Berea College and Berea College forest. We do appreciate your review and hope to see you back soon!

I recently stayed at this hotel for 4 days in April, 2014. The hotel was updated in 2009 and great effort must have been made to preserve the lovely quaint historic atmosphere. Rooms are well appointed. Some of the wooden furnishings in each room are made by the Berea College students. The location is very convenient on the town square. Staff is pleasant and helpful and extremely friendly. The front desk will gladly give you a copy of the recipe for the Hotel's famous Spoon Bread, just ask. Most of the staff are Berea College students who work as part of their school tuition. Dining room is beautiful and the food was very good. Our group ate breakfast and dinner there for our entire stay.

Room Tip: If you want a view, request a room facing a street. Some of the interior rooms look out onto a roof...

Thank you so much for your review. We have 40 Berea College Students who make up half of our staff here at the Tavern. I also thought you might like to know that the wood that the students use to make our furnishings in our guestrooms come from the Berea College farm. We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you back soon!

Our room was very clean and neat. Brittany in the gift shop was very personable, polite, knowledgeable and helpful. We loved hearing her talk about the different products in the shop and bought several gifts. One complaint is the parking! If you leave to go exploring you may not get a space to park when you return and there is no other place to park. While we understand that the restaurant patrons park in the same lot as hotel guests, there should be designated spots for hotel guests. We had to wait for almost two hours for a spot to open....not good. The other complaint was the noise of guests and housekeeping in the mornings...do not plan to sleep past 8:30 AM. You hear everything!
