The Elms was a great place to go relax. The room was clean and cozy. The room service was efficient and the food was fantastic. The spa is top notch. I got a massage and then used the gratto. It was fabulous. I would definately go back.

Hotel was clean and employees nice, but the hotel was tired and in need of a facelift. Lobby, spa, restaurant and grounds nice but the rooms were dated and in need of TLC. If you don't mind the rooms, it's an interesting old resort.

We were there on October 8th, 2016 for a wedding--that was beautiful. The hotel itself is pretty and impressive from the outside. The inside is admirable in the historical aspect. The doormen were so kind and helpful--good first impression of the hotel. We stayed in 155--and had trouble finding that hall. The entire floor smelled musty, our room was mediocre....

We had trouble with the plumbing in the first room we were given. But, the staff didn't want us to have to wait for us to get it fixed so they upgraded us to a suite. It was a very beautiful room, and the view over the pool was awesome. The whole atmosphere was very relaxing and peaceful. When we...

Totally overwhelmed, the hotel staff that is. This is one of those really interesting and historic hotels that, if you like that type of thing, you'll think is great, appearance wise. However, be careful about booking. Find out what is going on in the hotel during your planned stay. It could make a big difference. During our recent stay there...

We LOVED this hotel from the moment we saw it in our car! We celebrated our 20th anniversary and wondered why we let this Jewell go unnoticed all these years, since we live only 30 min away!! The Spa is the BEST I've ever experienced! Going back again for Halloween!! The little town has SO much to offer and we...

We stayed at The Elms for a two day conference, but ended up staying an extra night to enjoy the amenities. The rooms are oversized and generally pretty quiet. While we didn't dine in the restaurant, we did take in happy hour at the bar. The hotel is over 125 years old and the bar retains the beauty and charm...
