Nice Historic PropertyPosted May 18, 2015
This was a pleasant stay in a historic hotel built in the mid-1800's, but very well-kept. It is close to railroad tracks, but the building handled the sound well and the room including noise cancelling that let us all sleep throughout the night. We stayed in the Francis Scott Key room and it was nice. The adjacent pub, presumably run by the same management, was a very nice place, and we felt welcomed at both. We enjoyed our visit and would go back again.

New Year's EvePosted Jan 2, 2015
Pros: Breakfast was included and the huge television.
Cons: Move it away from the railroad which is across the street and all night long there were trains.
Location: Along the river front and near the casino.
Ft Madison has a great venue of bars with live music and no cover charge. Had to go and see/listen/watch a good friend play in the band "East of Omaha" on New Year's Eve. The band was great. The bar was less but we did have some interesting entertainment on the dance floor.

Do you like trains?Posted Dec 30, 2014
Pros: Rustic, reasonable, comfy beds. Would be a romantic get away.
Cons: update windows so that the draft is held out. We only saw the "staff" upon check in. At no other point did we see her. Luckily we didn't need anyth
Location: decent restaurants around the location
If it wasn't a train, it was either a guest or pair of workers going out to smoke in their truck, which they would start, so if it wasn't the train going by, it was the truck starting and running that was waking me up. In the hotel's defense, they did provide a noise machine to help cover the sound. However, the walls/windows are so thin that there isn't much that can be masked.

nice first time stay.Posted Nov 26, 2014 on Hotels.com
visiting family in the area and decided to try the B&B. Nice room, good location. Trains didn't bother me. Too bad the rest of the town closes down at 9pm!

Nice hotel close to Nauvoo, ILPosted Oct 27, 2014
Cons: Note above. Re: chair
Location: Navoo, IL historical site
Charming hostess, nice room, good pillows and bedding. Breakfast was ok. Room for 2 could have used another chair. Sitting up on the bed gets a little uncomfortable. Would recommend this to friends. Nothing multi do in the immediate area.
