Stayed one night, Aug 8-9th 2015, which happened to be the same weekend of summer graduation at FSU and I still got a really great rate on the room! The atmosphere of the hotel is very charming. We stayed in a Governor's room with a queen bed. The furniture is older and there's not a lot of extra space to...

The location was amazing close to some great restaurants and downtown. Rooms were very cute and large. Staff at the front desk and valet were all super friendly. However the housekeeping could use some pointers; just on the details. As a super clean freak I notice the little things. Around the faucets in both the sink and the shower had...

Location Location. 2 Blocks from Capitols , old and new. Would stay again in a heartbeat. Clean, safe with great restaurants across the street. This is a kittle gem of a place right in downtown and only a few blocks from the FSU Campus. Very safe and quiet. Staff is top notch and extremely helpful

I loved the old feel of this inn. The room with mezzanine was perfect for our son and us, although you had to go up and down to get into the small bathroom, we had a good stay and the bed which was high was comfortable. Breakfast was very limited but I enjoyed the infused water during the day. The...

We stayed here for one night so that we didn't have to drive all the way from Savannah to New Orleans in one day. The inn looks posh, so does the furniture in the rooms, but it is not that posh at all. A couple of things bothered me. The balcony of our room had no privacy at all; our...

A quaint, pleasurable place to stay when visiting Tallahassee. Cozy breakfasts, a fireplace in our room, excellent location, a well trained and friendly staff. They seem to know what you need before you do.

This hotel is located in a neat historic building downtown. Parking is hellacious, but the staff are very helpful and accommodating. We stayed in a corner room on one of the upper floors and bed were comfortable, and even though there was a bar downstairs, noise level was low.

I've stayed here for many years due to the short walk to where I need to go and lack of available room blocks in other places near the Capitol. Gov's Inn is pricey, but you save on rentals or cabs if you stay in the outskirts of town. The rooms are nice and some are a bit dated. My suite...

The hotel is old and needs some upgrades. Others said their AC did not work though mine was fine. No business center to print boarding passes. Close to Capital makes it convenient to House and Senate offices. For Capital business it's OK for vacation or a getaway never.

Planning a "Hometown Getaway", we decided to stay at this historic inn. To say we were disappointed is an understatement. "Historic" in this case means old and outdated. It began with the lack of welcome from an under enthusiastic front desk clerk. From there we discovered the room was uninspiring and in need of a thorough cleaning. The televisions are...
