I spent three nights here and very much enjoyed it. The hotel is a bit worn and dated, but it was very clean. The furnishings are pretty much antique. The bathroom was adequate--quirky decor but very clean with good water pressure. Lighting in the rooms...More

Marietta would not be Marietta without the Lafayette. I've been staying here semi-annually for years and never fail to enjoy my few days at this grand hotel. Built in the early part of the last century with a "new" addition circa 1938, it never seems...More

Nice location but the rooms are shabby, small, and uncomfortable. If I was to go back and visit the area, I would have stayed in another hotel. I did not want to shower or walk on carpet with bare feet. They have some nice historical...More
