This hotel claims to be on the National Geographic top 150 hotels. I have no idea how they can claim that. The room was tiny and overpriced. Our view outside was a brick wall. They claim to have luxurious accommodations, but the carpet was stained and filthy, the bedspread had holes and patches, and it was very unkempt. I almost...

We were driving from Nashville to Northern VA and looking for a hotel to break up the trip and luckily found this gem instead of settling on a boring chain hotel in Abingdon or Wytheville for the same price. We were pleasantly surprised by this nice, quiet, clean, historic hotel with a restaurant next door that had a bar with...

Very good location in the center of town. Nice clean rooms, may be a bit noisy in the hall. Parking and getting in and out are a bit of a pain if you have luggage. Overall a good experience and we would stay here again.

My husband is partially disabled from strokes and walks with some difficulty. I had called a few times prior to booking to ask about access to the building. I had some concerns because I learned there are steps no matter what entrance is used, but was assured there were railings at all stairs. Every person I spoke with on the...

My husband and I hail from Marion, MA, and when we drive to San Antonio for family get togethers twice yearly, we try to visit towns named Marion, and BTW, there are many towns so named. This small historic hotel with adjoining bistro is quiet, comfortable and affordable. Our "Junior Queen" room was tastefully appointed with custom draperies, large desk,...

Old hotel that has been redone. Room was clean and lovely even though a little small. An outstanding breakfast was included and the attendant was pleasant and actually made our waffles! Breakfast on Sunday mornings is "Pack and Go" because restaurant "Speakeasy" has a paid brunch open to the public. Hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful. Definitely plan on...

An outstanding old but gracious and well appointed hotel. I have a marvelous stay and slept in a most comfortable bed. You experience the hotel and all the history of the town while touring the street rich with entertainment and good food

Great to stay in an classic hotel in a nice town. This is an old hotel that has been redone. The Speakeasy Restaurant in the hotel was outstanding for dinner and the breakfast which was included with the price. Would return again for sure.

The GFMH was a perfect home for a long weekend that included a Saturday night concert at the Lincoln Theatre a few doors down. It is a wonderfully restored hotel that reflects a "Grand" era but on a smaller, more intimate scale. Our Executive Suite offered two spacious rooms separated by heavy doors; both nicely decorated and very comfortable, including...
