My husband bought a non refundable guided ski pass to Silverton. Watching the weather he was concerned about the pass closing and decided to come up the night before. I had some work to do and decided to come along and hang out in a sleepy mountain town for a day. I have never stayed at B&B and was worried...

Spent New Year's weekend here and had a wonderful time. The innkeepers were very attentive to and anticipated our needs. Food was great, room was clean and as described. Highly recommended place to stay and enjoy the service and company of 2 people who excel at hospitality!

We stayed at the Alma House the week of Christmas with two friends and had a great vacation! Albert and Betty made us most welcome, their breakfasts were great and nothing was too much for them to do including unloading luggage upon our arrival and departure and even clearing snow off out vehicle before we headed out for a days...

I believe we were the first customers for the new manager, Albert, and we were treated like royalty. He is an interesting and super friendly person who really went out of his way to make it a nice stay for us.The room was beautiful with lots of historical features and flawlessly clean. The breakfast was over the top amazing.

I believe Alma House hasn't been reviewed since the new owners took over late last year. From what I am reading here, they've been BUSY upgrading/improving many things, because NONE of the former complaints were evident on my visit this month. Believe me I've stayed in The Raffles, and a medieval castle, resorts, other B&B's--so I think I've got relatively...

Stayed here one night. Old place, not well-maintained. No hairdryer in the room or bathroom. Breakfast was supposed to be served from 7 to 9, we left by 7:45 and still no breakfast or coffee. Not impressed at $120 per night. Would not recommend this hotel.

Expected old but not dirty. No one available at check in so found our room with the key in the door. We had one of the last rooms available so knew we were sharing a bathroom which was filthy, mold on shower curtain and grease ring around tub.

We've been staying at the Alma House for decades and always have been happy. Beautiful Victorian-era furniture and decor with high-speed wi-fi access. Very nice innkeepers who made us wonderful breakfast every day. The hotel is a bit haunted but we've never felt frightened, not even our children. It's centrally located in town so you can easily walk everywhere.

My family and I have, for many years now, stayed at this B&B during our stays in Silverton. We've experienced a variety of managers and service levels over the years here. During our most recent visit, we were pleased to get to know the new managers, Debra and Mike - both served as excellent hosts during our stay. They made...

We were late arrivers in the middle of the night and the manager helped us and even tho the late hour we were allowed to use the Jacuzzi out back. The bed was nice, with a great view out the east window.
