Hotel is in desperate need of updating!! Starting with the carpet and including the a/c units, light fixtures , bathrooms - even the pillows are awful!! Towels are paper thin as is the toilet paper. Needs a LOT of TLC. could be really cute and quaint! No bugs - which is a great thing! And the staff is very friendly....

The town of Jefferson was everything I imagined from the pictures. From the antique stores, to the general store, hotels, and restaurants. Quiet, quaint, and wonderful getaway with that tad bit of excitement from the ghost stories and history. Our second night was at The Jefferson Hotel room 11. I love the charm of the hotel and how it has...

My husband and I stayed 1 night last night. Enjoyed our stay and I was woken up by a Victorian lady in the middle of the night. Great location, historic hotel and like stepping back in time! We would stay again. The downside is please, please, please, do something about the cleanliness. It's border line on whether it's really clean...

We came and stayed for a night in room 1 with my daughter and a friend for her birthday. The room was very nice and staff were also. The girls kept hearing the downstairs bell rung, but no one was there. Kind of spooky! We loved it, and will be back! We also kept hearing a cat inside and got...

If you love history, haunted places, and quiet elegance from the 1850's, the historic Hotel Jefferson is a must! Renovated beautifully, filled with antiques - and an occasional friendly ghost, it is well worth the stay. I loved sitting in the charming old lobby reading "The Book of the Dead", a collection of guests' stories about spirits they'd encountered here....

Have stayed at this hotel many times and love the old charm of the hotel and the town. The hotel has no real amenities and is what you would expect for a historic hotel. But needs a real good cleaning in all areas, carpets, drapes, bedspreads, baths. Because of this, I think this is the last time we will stay.

We met friends of ours in Jefferson for a couples weekend. The location of the Jefferson Hotel is fantastic. Once we parked our car on Friday we didn't get in it again until Sunday, when it was time to head home. I understand the building is historical, but that doesn't mean it can't be updated. The carpet in our room...

Look. The first thought that comes to mind upon checking in here is, "What's the time frame difference between historic and authentic and just old and needs updating?" Per my title, the bed (queen) was VERY comfortable and slept as well as any hotel bed I've slept on from Hawaii to the Caribbean to Ireland to expensive convention hotels. The...

Stayed here for 1 night during a Haunting Convention in town. The place is in a great location and has a great Italian restaurant attached. You get 15% off your bill if you eat there. Lots of spooky vibes and they stay true to the "old" but it was a little past that. It was for sure rundown. I dont...

This hotel is definitely worth a stay for anyone that enjoys historic hotels or haunted hotels. Overall the hotel is average. It's a little rundown and feels very old (which it is). Do your research ahead of time on the rooms, and decide which room you'd like to stay in. The second floor balcony is great for relaxing outside downtown....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At a time when steamboats plied the Big Cypress River from New Orleans and true Southern gentility was the order of the day a stately structure, now known as the Jefferson Hotel, was built. Once used as a warehouse to store cotton, this lovely building changed hands numerous times. At the turn of the twentieth century it was transformed into a hotel and has served as a haven for weary travelers since that time. ... more   less
