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.

Reviewed 22 February 2015

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 "Historic" in this case means old and outdated.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...

No one at front desk when we arrived. Our room had torn down blinds, mold all over the grout in the shower, a chair that was without padding, like sitting on hard wood, pillow had terrible staining on it; hair dryer was sticky and very dirty and cracked, mirror laid up against the wall instead of mounted, very tiny TV,...

The best staff in the world, and nice treats for breakfast. Very elegant architecture and within walking distance of everything. Very affordable off session. Love the four poster beds. If you love to stay in a place with some style, this is a great choice.

This hotel was originally a livery back in the 1860s and it has all the character and charm a boutique hotel should have. A manager there told us the support beams and posts were from the original building- very cool. The rooms were large and designed with an antique flair and each room was attributed to a Florida governor so...

Joey, Thank you so much for the glowing review of our property. We love to hear when guests have enjoyed themselves. We hope to see you back at the Governors Inn in the future.

The staff at the front desk and valet are very friendly, helpful, engaging and professional. Just spent long weekend @ Gov Inn for FSU homecoming weekend. The staff was wonderful and extremely helpful. They made the Govenors Inn worth the stay. The rooms with one bed are very small. However, my sons stayed in a room with two double beds...
