The Resturant is fantastic. We have visited twice and had the angus burgers. They are the best we've ever had. Definitely will be our go to spot when in town. The first time we were here was in February 2017. The owner came to our table and visited with us. After we ate our lunch he took us in a...

I will start with the positives. .my daughters wanted to stay at a "haunted hotel". This place had alot of charm. Very cute and I really liked the old feel it had. Decorated very nicely I thought. Our room was very cute with 2 beds overlooking the street. The beds were very comfortable. Two bottles of water in the fridge....

The Ruebel Hotel was the last place my husband and I stayed during our two-week road trip. It was a lovely way to end our vacation. First, it is right on the Mississippi River--breathtaking scenery. I like historic properties--and am also intrigued by the idea of ones that may be haunted, which this one is purported to be. Since there...

Booked dinner and rooms for a 50th wedding anniversary and couldnt ask for a better experience. The owners and staff treated us like royalty with their hospitality. They even assisted us with our decorations. Definitely an evening to remember largely due to the service that was provided by the ruebel. Highly recommend for any type of celebration or getaway.

Grafton is a quaint town about 15 miles north of Alton, IL, right on the banks of the mighty Mississippi. The Rubel Hotel is a step back in time to a classic hotel. It has been refurbished to original elegance, and each room is immaculate with excellent beds. Rates are very reasonable. The attached Rubel Saloon is another step back...

We wanted a quick weekend getaway in the Grafton area so we searched for hotels in the area. The Ruebel Hotel popped up so we researched their reviews. Most of the ratings were good so we went ahead and made reservations. The owner Mo Khamee was quick to respond to our request and setting things up was simple. When we...

Just spent a great weekend at the Ruebel, Mo, the proprietor is very hands on and attentive. He is very friendly and exhibits a care about your stay which is really refreshing. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The attached restaurant and bar area is very cozy and they had nice entertainment on Saturday night. We will be back!

I was really impressed with the owner of this hotel, who seemed to be always doing some chore in the restaurant or in the hotel, and whom I could tell genuinely cared about the needs and wishes of each of his customers. I was most impressed in the restaurant, where it appeared to me there was an equal number of...

We stayed here for the weekend in the fall of 2015 for my birthday, and we had a wonderful experience. Our room had a pretty view of the river, the bed was comfy and the shower had plenty of hot water. They have a very nice patio area, and we met one of the owners (Karen, I think) out there....

We have always wanted to stay at the old hotel in Grafton but were disappointed in our stay. The room was very small and cramped. The TV was very hard to use and we had to have someone help get it turned on, even though there was a card with instructions on it that did not work. That night it...
