“Beautiful B&B with thoughtful staff”
Reviewed October 18, 2008

My husband & I stayed here the night we were married. We checked in much later than they had anticipated, but we were greeted by the sweetest man who quickly whisked us to our room. The room itself was gorgeous, and they had a bottle of wine waiting for us. We unfortunately only stayed the one night as we headed out on our honeymoon the next day. Because of an early flight out, we were scheduled to miss breakfast. The thoughtful staff had an early breakfast prepared for us anyway which really made our brief stay that much more memorable.

Beautiful accommodations, wonderful staff & an amazing location. This place is definitely worth the price!

I just put up 12 people in the Stone Fort Inn and every one of them made a point to compliment on how great the service and the rooms were. All 12 had to get up and leave before breakfast was scheduled to be available and Edie made it a point to serve breakfast early that morning. This was not the first time I had put people in the Stone Fort and I have never received anything but compliments.

Stayed September 2008

When I booked the room i was informed that it was a full service inn. The only way to get service at the Stonefort is to do thing yourself. The help leaves or goes off at 10pm, after this there are no people about to answer calls or help.No ice,drinks,food,or help at all after 10pm, and they tend to leave the front at other times so those times too you can't get help or service. The area around the inn is not the nicest, and the parking is crowded and in short supply. The room decor was nice and the bathroom was excellent and spacious. My girlfriend and i were walked in on (in bed)by housekeeping. No knock just walked in.The day of checkout they called and hungup to make sure we knew to get out. Noone said thank you or goodbye or anything as i left,the lady at the front, just sat at the computer and did not turn around. I would like to say the service was bad but it was totally nonexistant. Not a good place to stay for the price.

Found the hotel easily enough and had a very warm welcome from Brian who was standing in for the concierge. (He was one of the chefs!) He explained everything very well and suggested he book a table at Table 2 for us that evening ..excellent choice..one of the best meals we'd had for ages.
The room was comfortable and had all we needed,the only problem was traffic noise outside during the night..we would ask for a rear room next time.
Breakfast was great and plentiful, the staff were very helpful and friendly.
Overall a really good place to stay.

We stayed at the Stone Fort Inn last weekend and had an absolutely wonderful time. I can't say enough about the outstanding staff and service.

The Inn is romantic and restful. It is located downtown not too far from any of the attractions.

A great place for a weekend getaway -away from the kids!

This building was built in 1909 and was once known as the Colonial Hotel. You can still see features that are original and restored. It is now an Inn/B&B and very well maintained. It looks as though it still has the original hardwood floors.

Overall I would say we had a very good stay at this location. The host and the breakfast staff were wonderful. We reserved a second floor room which had private balcony with a jetted tub. This was super nice and very relaxing. This room also has a claw foot tub and French shower along with a separate water closet (toilet). :)

The breakfast on Sunday morning was wonderful. Much more than a standard continental breakfast. The staff was extremely helpful in pointing out everything that was available to eat. They also had some outstanding coffee.

The only negatives I have about this location is the floors do creek a lot. We had someone above us on the third level and when they moved around we heard it all. If you are a late sleeper you can only hope the people above you are too. If I stayed here again I would request a room on the third level just because of the squeaking floors. The bed was a bit to giving or soft for my liking but my wife loved it so other than these two items I would recommend this place to anyone.

My wife and I stayed here for our 3rd Anniversary. James (the front desk clerk) recommended we stay in room 39 when I called to make a reservation and I am so glad that he did. This room has a balcony that allows you a nice view of some of the downtown buildings. We found the room to be clean and very nicely decorated. It is decorated in a French theme which my wife and I loved. Our room also had a fireplace too. They had candles in the room and around the jetted tub as well. In addition to this place being so nice the staff was more than eager to help. We even had one of them take some pictures of us before we went out to dinner. We went to "Table 2" for dinner and the food was INCREDIBLE! It is a short walk from Stone Fort. The staff @ Stone Fort even made the reservations for us. They also have a binder with menu's from local restaurants so you can decide what you'd like to eat. We were there during the week so we didn't get to experience the gourmet weekend breakfast. However, we were very pleased at what they had. They offered to cook us eggs and bacon if we wanted some (we ended up getting that and it was good). They had a nice selection of cereal, pastries and fresh fruit (continental stye breakfast). We hope to send some of our friends here as this place is wonderful AND romantic. We'll definitely return one day too!
