TIPS - Texas Investigators of the Paranormal and Supernatural investigated this room and didn't come up with ANYTHING. Previous reports of the mirrors having hidden messages - had no message. Reports of the bathtub mysteriously filling - Bathtub will fill up because its very hard to turn off water. When water drips it will auto-close the stopper on the bottom...

Went to the quilt show this past week and stayed at The Jefferson. Was pleasantly surprised. Had walked through the hotel a few years ago and was put off by the shabby (sagging cushions) furniture in the lobby and had images of shabby rooms in my mind, but never saw the rooms. Well, me and a friend booked Room 20...

Great location. We were driving to Jefferson for only one night over the weekend and seemed like most of the B&B's in town requested 2 night stay. So I was excited to find this historic old hotel; and it was exactly what we expected. We didn't expect brand spanking new, state of the art gadgetry, or everything to be 100%....

I stayed at the Jefferson Hotel the weekend of January 18, 2014. The desk clerk was helpful - although on the phone when I arrived to check in, and seemingly intent on describing every room in completely detail to whomever was on the phone. While it was annoying to wait while she did so, later on I understood why. The...

My husband and I stayed in the Jefferson Hotel for my 61st birthday in April of 2013. When we checked in mid-afternoon we were told that we were the only guests staying that night and that there would be no staff on-site after 5 PM. We were given a code for the door and wished a pleasant night. The employees...

Stayed here one of the last weekends of December. The staff was very friendly and had many great suggestions as a walk-in. They showed me several rooms and I stayed in room 22. It had a very large bed and a working fireplace. The tub was an claw-foot but it had a handheld shower as well. It was a very...

My wife and daughter tried to reschedule a stay at the hotel five days before the reservation due to illness . Even though they were going to extend the stay from one night to two in the near future, the hotel would not allow it citing their cancellation policy. Unfortunately, they consider a reschedule as a cancellation and will charge...

i don't really meant this is a particularly bad way, you do get what you pay for, which means that they also have a super cheap option. We went for this, and yes the bathroom is pretty awful, with almost no shower pressure, and the room is tiny, but it was warm, and different to anywhere else we stayed. Definitely...

My husband and I have visited this quaint little city a couple of times but have never stayed overnight. We decided to get away for a Saturday night and headed to Jefferson but planning to stay in a motel in Marshall. We did not make hotel reservations since we do not like to be tied to a place until we...

I made reservations on Monday for a Saturday. I was told I would have to give 7 days in advance for a refund. Something came up and two days later, I had to cancel my reservation. In the first place I didn't book 7 days in advance. I realize they were going to keep my $50.00 deposit, but they have...

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
