Plains Historic Inn
Ranked #1 of 1 Plains B&B and Inns

Reviewed July 21, 2006

When on vacation, I always try to stay in unique hotels. This is not always easy on a budget for a family of four (my kids are now teens). The Plains Inn is like most small bed and breakfast hotels with only one bed per room, but it was so inexpensive I jumped at the chance to stay there. Wow! The rooms were huge, with a sitting area in every one. Each room was bigger than most suites. The wood plank floors, the brick outside walls, the antique furniture and the period decorations made the whole stay unique. With each room decorated by decade, we stayed in the 1930 (one big bed for us) and 1940 (twin beds for the kids) rooms. The claw-foot tub was huge, but stepping in was a little hard. The host warned us in advance which rooms were appropriate for which age group. My parents stayed in the 1950 room, as that room has a regular tub with shower for people who cannot step as high as they used to. I would stay again just for the feeling of small town warmth.

We found the Inn by chance. While stopping at the Visitors Center, Linda suggested we stay there. That caused me to remember seeing it on Foodtv. They even called the Inn for us to see if there was any rooms available. There was, and being from California, we rushed down before it was booked! Much to our surprise, no one else had booked any of the rooms yet. We were given the opportunity to view all the themed rooms. Naturally, we choose the "Presidental Suite". Each room/year is set up dealing with Jimmy Carter's life (done in the decades of 20's - 80's). We expected the rate to be very expensive but found it was very reasonable. Everyone was so wonderful and friendly in town, we stayed another night and found out when Jimmy Carter is in town, he teaches Sunday School at his church! Plan to go early though. It made our stay wonderful and we plan to go back again!
