Great location on river and main st

Posted Sep 8, 2017
The hotel is very cool, old and charming. The staff is nice, the hotel bar and restaurants are good. Location by the river is awesome. Take you bikes if you can, riding around would be fun.

Right by the River so close to everything.

Posted Sep 7, 2017
Pros: That it was clean and took you back in time.
Cons: Person at check in to be more understanding and help people on where to park and how to get to your room. Be nice.
Location: There is a great coffee shop in town. Have to try their Ohio Buckeye coffee if you like chocolate and peanut butter, it's to die for. Kitchen shop.
The room we had was on the 5th floor and they are on the smaller side. But the are nice and the hotel is very clean and with all the glass lamps and wood they had it was very clean. When we checked in the girl was not very friendly and she acted like we had been there before when I asked how to get to our room. She was rude saying obviously to me when I had a few questions. Marietta is a nice place to visit and every one we meet was nice. Got to take a ride on the Stern Wheeler too! What great fun! So much history there as well.

I will work harder with them to make sure they are showing people a better side of how we greet our guest. We look forward to seeing you on your next trip to Marietta.

Old Hotel

Posted Jul 3, 2017
Hotel in good location but run down. Furniture really hotel. No A/C in lobby. Room 234 smelled really really bad. Either sour mold or sewer smell.

I'm sorry to hear that you encountered problems during your stay. There is Air conditioning in the Lobby, I'm not aware of any recent issue with it however I will most definitely check into it. I hope that you have another opportunity to visit the hotel and have a better experience on your next trip.

This hotel is simply spectacular! Like taking steps back in time with its rich antique dressings throughout the hotel. Very clean and comfortable.

Nice downtown stay

Posted Jun 12, 2017 on Hotels
The Lafayette is a nice, clean hotel in downtown Marietta. It has lots of historic charm and the room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the bar, but was disappointed that they didn't carry craft brews from the Marietta Brewing Co. The restaurant buffet on Sunday was plentiful and tasty.
