I love this place! It is a piece of history. It is the oldest running hotel since 1854! The hotel is old and it has character. National has a great bar and the bar tenders are awesome, just cant be too high maintenance. Take a shot of whiskey, sing some karaoke, and have some fun.

Yuck!!! My husband wanted to stay here for a wedding we were attending. This place is dirty and falling apart. The windows were broken. The shower And window curtains were coming off. The tv didn't work. The shower was missing a handle and the worst was there were dead bugs on top of the canopy over the bed. We stayed...

Now, to be fair, its been awhile since I stayed here. But my hubby and I were just in the area for our yearly trek and saw that the place is still as dismal as ever. Too bad really, given its most excellent location and historic roots. And I wouldn't even be mentioning it here, were it not for the...

We stayed at the National Hotel last weekend for our anniversary. A little up-dating, it has been up-dated since the 80's.....What a disappointment when we checked into our so called cottage with fireplace. We were told it was a romactic cottage. We both walked around the room with our shoes on the whole time, slept being careful of not touching...

OK...so I don't think I will stay here again but it was a unique experience. It is a very old historic hotel that has had very little updating, in my opinion. To my surprise upon checking in, no shower only a bath tub. It was a nice bath tub, claw foot. I didn't try it out as I opted for...

We like this hotel because it is so old and historic. Things aren't even close to good condition, but if you like history and are adventurous, it can be fun. We've stayed when it was really cold, and the steam heat didn't quite reach our room. We had to borrow an electric heater from the front desk, but we made...

This hotel is in disrepair as evidenced by the wind blowing through the holes in the walls and cracks around the windows. Doors in the room would not close or lock, such as the bathroom. They only have a small heater to heat the bedroom and with the wind blowing through, it did very little to keep us warm. They...

My husband and I have stayed at the National Hotel and have had breakfast in their restaurant at least 3-4 times in the past. We have always enjoyed the stay, food and historical atmosphere. It had been two years since we had made a visit to the National so we took my mother-in-law and the three of us went up...

I thought this would be a cute little place to stay based on the historical aspect. I WAS WRONG. The rooms are disgusting with water stained wall paper and carpet. The bathroom was filthy and looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years. The toilet leaked all over the floor and the hot water took 15 minutes to show up...

If you are looking for a 5 star hotel with all the amenities, this is not your place. If you are looking for something a little more historical in a busy little town, this is your spot. My husband and I spent the evening there on a Friday night. We had a room near the veranda and were able to...
