Historic yes-stay no!

We have been wanting to stay here for more than 30 years. So the opportunity (& finances) fianally made it possible & we were so excited. The check in staff was friendly & helpful that's about all the good I can say about the hotel side. Thought we were getting a queen room - they don't have any. We managed in a full bed. picked up dead bees on the floor. Cold/Hot spickets were backwards in shower. At breakfast there wasn't a soul. We even looked & yelled for help & coulden't find anyone to get creamer. (Substandard anyway for this type of place). Then as we go to check out we had to yell to wake up the kid sleeping on the couch! Not impressed with hotel. The restaurant was OK. Some food was a bit salty for my taste but it they were friendly & fast. And there was plenty!

We are extremely sorry for the terrible experience. At the Jarrett House, we do not take situations like these lightly. It can be assured that every measurable action is being taken to fix these problems, including a recent exterminator visiting the grounds. We do not condone our staff to behave like that and the situation has been brought forth. The unfortunate reason for the small breakfast is due to our kitchen being spred thin between two restaurants with less than enough staff. However, in the future we are looking to improve our breakfast to Hot options as well. We always take feedback on the restaurant and food served to heart as we are always looking to get better in that aspect. Customer service and guest relations are huge to us here at the Jarrett House and we cannot apologize enough. We believe that your feedback will help us in the long run.

Very Excited

Pros: It is small and had a bar and restaurant in the hotel.
Location: It is a historic city and plenty to do nearby.
I had a wonderful stay there. I was excited to go to Jarrett House to stay. Turned out the hotel was closed for New Year, but they made special effort to make sure I had a room. We were the only people staying there. I am excited to go back and see the rest of the Jarrett House when it is actually open. The restaurant and bar were only open until 9:00 PM, but It is a small town that rolls up the streets at night. I loved it.
