We stayed at Shaw's Inn, in The Venice Whirlpool Room, for my 40th birthday, 4/29/2011. I know, I'm late in posting! :) The Inn is lovely, charming and inviting. Our plan was to not leave the room once we got there, and we didn't! I enjoyed a long over-due soak in the luxurious tub, we cuddled on the love seat...

My husband and I decided to do a little weekend getaway this past weekend. Typically, when we plan a last minute getaway, we go to our old standby...Hilton Polaris (best hotel in Columbus in our opinion). However, we wanted to try something different, yet still stay close to home due to the weather. My husband and I are rather particular...

Very fortunate to get a room at Shaws Inn, very late on a Saturday night, about 11 pm when we got there. Nice room, in a well kept, and very classy looking downtown Hotel. The room was a corporate room, and while a little small, was well appointed, and I am sure a standard size for the age of the...

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel & restaurant a total of 3 times and every time it has been a very nice stay. This is not a chain/franchise hotel. The furnishings are upscale and sometimes French Provincial, depending on your room. The rooms a very clean & the bed very comfortable. The rooms are not suites but...

I love the restaurant in this old place, just downtown. It really is a good and quality place to eat. I really liked that this old place had been restored and saved. It has a lot of charm. My room was not large but it was quiet.

Just a warning to everyone that once they get your credit card, they feel they can charge you what they want. As a frequent traveler, We have never dealt with anyone as unprofessional and rude as Susie, the owner. As far as the room, it was clean and nice, for an oversized closet!! And if you reserve a room but...

Two weary people that just got in after a drive from St. Louis. Room was clean, comfortable and cheerful. Would stay here again on our venture to St. Louis to visit niece.

Stayed here one night on the mid-week special that included the room, breakfast and some money toward dinner. An older structure with lots of charm in Downtown Lancaster with a great restaurant that I have dined at many times before. Thought I would do the overnight stay and try their rooms. The room was nice and spacious. Hasn't been updated...
