Not quite what we expected, had to tote our luggage up flight of stairs to register , receptionists stayed on phone the whole time we were trying to register ! It was a quaint twentieth century themed hotel but handicapped room on third floor, not very accessible. Probably won't stay there again!

Thank you for your feedback. I'd like to apologize for not meeting your expectations. For future references, in addition to the elevator at the front desk, we have an elevator that can take you from the ground floor to the 2nd floor front desk/receptionist area. The best way to come into the hotel would be through the front entrance, and...

After our son's ETSU graduation we treated him and his uncle from NY to a live Song of the Mountains concert and a pleasant stay at the General Francis Marion Hotel. Our rooms were large and first class with all amenities yet the cost reasonable. The hotel arranged for our concert tickets we picked up at the front desk as...

Thank you for your review. Is there anything we could have done differently to receive 5 stars instead of 4?

Great to see a historic place in south West Virginia, the room was amazing, very comfy, the restaurant on site, accommodations were very much appreciated I love these remodeled buildings!! The one negative is that the staff could have been more engaged

Do not waste your money. We stayed there for 2 nights and used the hotel ballroom for our wedding venue. The venue itself is very pretty. The service we received was horrible. My wedding was basically ruined. The customer service is horrible and they will place additional charges to your card 3 weeks after your stay. Complete disappointment.

There is a card room and an outdoor roof patio (in season) as well as several restaruants onsite. If you want a special weekend book this hotel and an event at...

My family stayed at the General Frances Hotel in Marion ,VA and I was not impressed with the service and the food was cold. My credit card was charged with no explanation for the extra charge. The rooms are very small and you can hear everything happening in the next room.

The only reason I came to this hotel and paid generously to stay in a closet sized room was because I was attending a wedding. We were all excited because the hotel is beautiful and sounded like a great place. The front desk man and house keeper were very friendly which was the ONLY good thing about our stay there!...

This is a very special place! We received a warm welcome and the receptionist even helped us with unloading our luggage. We stayed in a corner room with two Queen beds. The room was large and had a very nicely appointed bathroom. Plenty of towels! The view was on the parking lot, but since we only stayed one night, it...

This hotel is absolutely amazing. The rooms are beautiful as well. Not much to do in the town, but what do you expect in a small town?
