Not as Expected

Posted Mar 1, 2015
Pros: Excellent location.
Windows cracked poor lighting broken chair sink drain plug stuck closed missing shower handle I expected more. Maybe a 3 star. This hotel has great potential but its not there yet. Owners need to invest more in this hotel.

Old and Older

Posted Feb 27, 2015
The staff was pleasant. Not very knowledgable about the surrounding area unfortunatly. It is a old hotel and with that comes some blemishes. My first room the heat didn't work and after the first night I discovered a leak coming from the celing. They moved me quickly to an adjacent room but this one was much smaller and the floor was severly sloped. When I laid in be I felt like I could roll out at any minute. Curtains were old and torn, cracks on the celing, the drain in the bathroom sink didn't work.... All in all I would not stay there again.

The Fairmount

Posted Feb 21, 2015
We loved staying here. The rooms are large with an old world feel, lovely antique furniture, wooden floors, tall windows, balconies, & a courtyard. The beds were very comfortable, and the bathtub was wonderful, large enough for a tall man that loves to soak after a long day. We love hotels with history, and The Fairmount has a unique story. The hotel staff was excellent, friendly & helpful. Willing to go the extra mile.

Quaint Hotel Very unique-needs updating

Posted Feb 18, 2015
Pros: Fresh Chocolate chip cookies, unique charm to the hotel setting, balcony that had a great sunrise scene, hard wood floors, headboard for the bed
Cons: bathroom towel rack and wallpaper, balcony floor.
Location: Within Walking Distance: Convention Center, The Villias, Shops, Restaurants, RiverWalk, Tower of the America's.
The hotel was beautiful - chandler in the lobby, antique furniture reminiscent of the 1900 era, Beautiful inlay cabinets, unique room shapes too. The room was clean and comfortable, the balcony was a nice feature especially with the sunrise. The shower was good, bathroom was clean, the room was clean with hardwood floors, antique furniture for the TV Stand, Desk and chairs. It had a very nice feel to it and I enjoyed my stay. However, it is in need of some updating. the wallpaper in the bathroom was peeling, the towel rack felt like it was going to fall off in my hand, the balcony needs resurfaced - if you walked on it with bare feet, you will get a splinter. I really liked this hotel thought - it had a lot of charm and the employee's were very nice, friendly and helpful. the 3rd night I was there, I found the FRESH chocolate chip cookies in the lobby. Those were heaven!

Nice something different

Posted Feb 16, 2015
We enjoyed it. The guy who checked us in was excellent. I wish I remembered his name. He was professional friendly and know experienced hotel clerk. The room was nice but not stunning like it was on the internet. Clean lady was very friend my even though she did not understand English. I would give it a better rate if the clerk Cindy wasn't so nice and warm when I was ready to check out. She was like ok you are done. I was like okay miss Cool. if you wanna try something different than the modern hotel this one is definitely fun.
