Nothing about this place was inviting. The second we checked in the staff left. They told us that the front door would lock after 9:30pm, it was locked by 5. We left to go to dinner and when we got back the lock was broken and we couldn't get in. Luckily we found a way in through the back. We told them about it the next day and the lady just replied with "We know it's broke, they're fixing it today". She didn't seem surprised or apologize. There are zero noise policies posted everywhere, explaining how making even a peep will get you kicked out. Trains go by all night long so I'm not sure that people are the reason no can sleep there. The beds are extremely uncomfortable. None of the people in our group was able to sleep or enjoyed staying there. They boast that it's haunted, it's not. It's just creaky and has moaning plumbing. I love historic hotels and it seems very pretty when you first walk in so I'm sad to say that it was so awful. Even worse, when we told people in the town where we were staying, they either told us bad things about it or were no surprised that we didn't like it. Jefferson is an adorable town and we will definitely go there again, and stay some where else.
