This was our second stay with Bill - first time in the luxury suites. My only negative would be the continental breakfast was less hearty than I would have liked after a nite out, but the warm homemade bread and muffins were delicious! Room was huge- and clean with gas fireplace and jetted tub! Bath towels were plentiful and plush... More

Basic accommodations. Smallish room; grandmother's decor. The TA description of "completely renovated" is a huge stretch. Our room and bath were renovated many years ago. Clean. Common areas include kitchen, living room and kitchen stocked with a coffee maker. Breakfast is juice and a muffin, which we declined. Common areas also included a screen porch. Unfortunately, the proprietors allow smoking... More

Bill N, Owner at Greenbriar Country Inn & Suites, responded to this review

This review contains so many inaccuracies and falsehoods that I feel compelled to address them. First and foremost; all of our four buildings are smoke free. We do not allow smoking in any of our buildings. We have eight outside porches on our property, two of them screened, as well as outside picnic areas and decks and sitting areas spread... More

Our room was lovely; the staff made us feel like we were bothering them when we called to book a room, and then asked a question while we were there. Breakfast consists of muffins wrapped in saran wrap; a banana that is still a little green two days later; apricots that are still not ripe two days later; cold hard... More
