The Plains Historic Inn is adorable. We planned to visit the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site and wanted to have a real Plains experience. The rooms are huge and decorated in themes of each decade from 1920 to 1980. The 1970 room is the Presidential room, because after all, that's when Jimmy Carter became president. Frankly I thought it was...

I stayed at this hotel by accident and it turned out to be an extraordinary experience. I really enjoyed my stay there. The very meticulous and detailed decoration on each room made me feel as I was living a dream. I got to stay in the 70’s room for one night and another in the 60’s room. I wish I...

I've stayed in many B&B's from Florida to Montana, but the Plain's Historic Inn is by far the best! From the staff that makes you feel like family to the beautiful accommodations and the historic details, this is the place for you if you want to feel part of South Georgia's rich history and experience real southern hospitality. Who knows,...

The Plains Inn is everything those that enjoy something off the beaten path will love completely. If you are a "chain" person, you will hate it--the character would completely overwhelm you! Be prepared to chat with the other guests as it is a homey environment that encourages conversation. I staryed in the 1920's Room and my parents stayed in the...

I was driving my mom back north after a winter in Florida, and made a diversion to Plains to see the town the Carters grew up in. What a great destination, and what a nice place to spend a night! Ms. Jen was so nice to us and showed us places for us to visit, as well as dinner. The...

This is the fourth year I have stayed in the Plains Historic Inn. The charm and hospitality of this small town and its wonderful inn are memorable. The decor of each room is founded on styles of different decades, and they are all charming and very comfortable. Miss Jan is the ideal host. I always feel welcome, and each visit...

Such a great price and a welcomed place to stay. The rooms are precious in their vintage decor. Try it out! It is above a great antique store located on Main Street in Plains GA. A great balcony area as well as a central kitchen for gathering, this is a quaint little inn.

We enjoyed our visit to Plains so very much. The Historic Inn in Plains could not have been nicer or more welcoming. The rooms are decorated to the decades starting with the 20's and ending with the 80's. They are warm and inviting and very clean and well maintained. Jan and her crew are all so friendly and made us...
