I loved the history of this hotel but I was a little spooked out. We never encountered any staff since we arrived late and had to leave early. We were the only guests there and took advantage of the weekday specials they offer. I was looking forward to the clawfoot tub but was a bit disappointed with it. Although I...

I love this Hotel. We love the history and all the ghost tales. The rooms are awesome. It is like going back in time.....old timey furniture and atmosphere. The stairs to go upstairs are very creaky which adds to the excitement you feel. The clerks are so friendly. Planning to go back in Oct.

So my best friend surprised me by staying at this hotel (which has always been a childhood dream of mine) and we loved it! We stayed in room 25 and it was a beautiful room with a nice jacuzzi tub (which we loved). Since I had always wanted to stay there I knew that the hotel was said to be...

Wonderfully helpful and friendly staff made our stay in this fabulous old building. However the hotel is in need of a lot of updating from carpets to bedding which are all very worn and shabby - unfortunately without the chic! I fear this could take a lot of money so may be sometime before rectified.

Just spent another weekend in one of our favorite places to visit Jefferson Texas and stayed at the Historic Jefferson Hotel once again. We make at least 2 trips a year to Jefferson for the Candlelight Tour in December and the Pilgrimage in May. We always stay at the Jefferson Hotel. This hotel is in the perfect location and is...

It is an easy walk to the old downtown of Jefferson from the hotel. The stairs and doors are a little squeaky, but it fits in with the ghost tour. The room was fine and bed comfortable enough. Enjoyed sitting out on the balcony across the front of the hotel in the evenings.

Everyone @ this hotel is so friendly! We stayed in June, returned in July. Our June stay was enjoyable & while our July stay was nice, there were some things we felt shouldn't have happened. We got in late, so our key was in an envelope on the front desk, with our receipt, which held personal info on it. There...

Old rustic Hotel. Like taking a step back in time. Stayed in the room where a 15 year old bride hung herself after being jilted. Staff is nice and friendly. The upstairs hall way has a lot of old pieces along the wall that I enjoyed looking at. No ghost sightings though :(. The girl friend did her the thump...

A older Gem that could use some TLC. Keep it's charm yet clean it up some. Moldy sooty black mess by air intakes and outlets, not all rooms have individual controls and scrimping on personal items such as only 1 bar soap for both sink and tub. Spend a little to upgrade baths to standing also showers instead of hand...

Staff was friendly and nice. After that not much. The a/c in our room was 63. We tried and tried to turn it down even to heat and only got to 64. After the restaurant closed the staff which uses the same building was out in the hall and very loud with no regard to guest in being as quiet...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
At a time when steamboats plied the Big Cypress River from New Orleans and true Southern gentility was the order of the day a stately structure, now known as the Jefferson Hotel, was built. Once used as a warehouse to store cotton, this lovely building changed hands numerous times. At the turn of the twentieth century it was transformed into a hotel and has served as a haven for weary travelers since that time. ... more   less
