The last time I stayed here was 50 years ago when I graduated from Marion College. Now I was back for my 50th class reunion. There are only 36 rooms and vary in accomodations. We had a lovely room with all you could need: great wifi, flat screen tv, nice size closet and spotless bathroom. There is no coffee pot...

Great place to stay. Very friendly staff. Very clean room and bathroom. Small bit of history for an unplanned stay. I was as comfortable here as I have been anywhere. Though I'm not a professional traveler I have been staying in more hotels recently. I would love to find others like this during my three day weekends.

This was a serindipity find. We were forced off the Blue Ridge PArkway due to its closure. Decided to take I81 north. An accident, blocking the road, caused us to give up heading north for the night. This is a beautiful gem in a small but comfortable town in southern Virginia. As you walk in the front door there is...

My husband and I recently stayed for just one night in this lovely old hotel. The king-sized four poster bed was as comfortable as it was attractive. The bathroom was spotlessly clean. The reason I'm rating this place with 4 stars instead of 5, is because the continental breakfast was pretty dismal. Both the coffee and the milk were lukewarm....

My second time staying there. Remodeled a few years ago; a nice job done sort of in early 1900s period decor. Had a front room that was spacious with full closet for this small hotel. Well appointed, large bath, comfortable bed and quiet HVAC. Disappointed that the restaurant/bar in the lobby was closed; last visit, the food was great and...

The front desk staff were very helpful both before and during the visit. The room was nicely done. The old style four legged sink and subway tile in the bathroom were a nice touch. There was a fair amount of traffic noise on Main Street early in the evening but it subsided and was not a problem during the night....

Thank you for choosing the stay at The General Francis Marion Hotel and your review. We appreciate you taking the time to review your stay. Just so you are aware, our front desk associates are more than happy to make coffee upon request at any time. In room coffee is an item under review, and is expected to be added...

On the way home from visiting my family up north, we needed somewhere to stay. Instead of going to a Marriot, I decided to stay somewhere local and found the Francis Marion.
