“Paper-thin walls”
Reviewed February 16, 2008

I just returned from an evening at the Marcum Conference Center - had a room (226) on the second floor with two twin beds. I was unable to sleep due to hearing very clearly the conversations of the couple and their friends in the adjoining room - it sounded almost like they were in our room! After an hour and a half of trying to get to sleep, I called the front desk and begged for a move to another room. The front desk person said they were full and that maybe I should turn on my TV to mask the noise. He also said he would call them and tell them he had passed by the room in the hallway and to "keep it down" (which he did - I heard the phone ring and their side of the conversation). I explained that they were not really talking that loudly - the problem was with the room/walls. In any event, I got very little sleep with all the conversation (and other noises I didn't care to hear!) since they were up almost all night (there was a break from about 12:30 to 3:00 am). Otherwise the room was clean, the mattresses were a little too firm, and the complimentary chocolates and bottled water were a nice touch. But I will never go back or recommend it to another traveler. I have never experienced this specific problem at any other hotel, and it ruined the stay.

I attended a mini-reunion with 5 college friends. The Inn is across the road from the conference center and the formal gardens. We were there in the summer, so the atmosphere was pretty peaceful. The rooms are well appointed and the staff very helpful. The location is great, at the corner of Patterson and High, within an easy walk to uptown. Breakfast is standard continental, muffins and cereal, juice and coffee.

Smallish, newer hotel with nice-sized rooms. Traditional decor, comfy beds, sparkling clean. Service was friendly and helpful. Breakfast is included. Nice outdoor patio and lounge that serves almost any aged Scotch and Bourbon you can think of. Across from lovely green space on campus that you can walk through. Easy free parking. Caters mostly to University visitors. Reasonably priced.

  • Liked — A cozy, comfortable hotel
  • Disliked — No restaurant
  • Tips/Secrets — Try to get a room on the main floor

We found the Marcum Inn a nice place to stay. It was clean, the beds were great and the room size was a little larger than average. The only drawback to me, was upon entering it looks old and rather dark inside. Their breakfast was pretty much the standard fare but presented nicely. I would stay there again, just wish the prices were a little bit more reasonable.
