“Laid back...maybe a little bit too much, but I liked it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We got in Clifton Forge at around 8pm, and two other guests let us in. We grabbed our key to the room and settled in. The Inn was beautifully decorated, very clean, and to my surprise, a lot of goodies for the guests in the kitchen. We went on the hike next morning at the Douthat State Park, came back, and had breakfast in the kitchen. Never got to meet Jo Ann, and we checked ourselves out.

We felt like we were at home. A lot of common areas, magazines, and books. We felt very comfortable to walk around, and explore. We loved the upstairs sunroom. Very reasonable price for a semi B&B too. We will definitely come back if we have another chance.

Convenient to anything in Clifton Forge, this is a comfortable place and a good value. The rooms are fairly spacious and the beds comfortable. It's not far from the railroad but that isn't a problem (and besides, nothing in Clifton Forge is far from the railroad). The internet works well and is free. There's a serve-yourself continental breakfast in the kitchen and plenty of room downstairs to relax and socialize. I frequent the area and am happy to return every trip.

My husband and I just spent one night here. The rooms were clean and the snacks and breakfast offerings were perfect! The bathrooms were very large and wonderfully stocked! If you are ever in this area, you have to stay here! Woof-woof-woof.......even our dog, MacGregor loved it here!

This is the place to stay. Great Experience and helpful staff. They will bend over backwards to make you comfortable and take care of your needs. The Inn is one of a kind and so beautiful and comfortable, it makes you feel like you are at home. I will definetely stay here again.

Room Tip: I would recommend Room #1 as it has a private bath. Room #6 was great as was #5

My wife and I came here with our 13 month old and spent two nights at the Red Lantern. We could not have asked for any better accommodations. The Inn was always clean including the rooms. Additionally, there was always a stocked fridge with essentials for breakfast and snacks during the day; a HUGE plus that we were not even expecting. From the Inn Keeper to the entire town, everyone was as friendly as could be. Whenever we come back (and we will), this is where we will stay.

Room Tip: Room number 1 is the king room it is on the street and has great views of the mountains and the town...
