I have stayed in both the Loft and Tower suites and enjoyed the latter enough to book a second night. I would agree with a previous post that the beds and pillows are on the firm side. Having said that, this is a well appointed, very clean, and comfortable lodging option in a village that has so much to offer.... More

I stayed in the studio suite for two nights. It was a great location, very clean, spacious, and easy to access. Only downside for me was the hardness of the bed/pillows. I found it overly firm and had trouble sleeping both nights, which normally isn't a worry for me while traveling.

My one frustration was that I had only one night in the Loft. This was my first time in Yellow Springs, and I had a busy schedule and also wanted to see the town, but I wanted to just hang out in the Loft. What a charming combination of history and modern convenience and design. The Loft is both efficient... More

Was seeking some quiet and relaxation. This was my first visit to Y.S. and I stayed in the Jailhouse Suites Studio Loft. The premises were pristine. One could immediately tell the grounds and suites were well maintained. Nothing fancy, a little "dorm" like, but better. It's bright and cheerful and painted in colors reminding me of a dreamsicle, but makes... More

This is a wonderful little place to stay!! The suite was very, very clean and within walking distance to just about everything. The parking was very easy and once I parked we walked the rest of the weekend. I would recommend Jailhouse as a quality place to stay!

We were very pleased with the location and the off-street parking. I think the owner thought of everything in making the room comfortable for guests. We did have a problem with the TV (while the owner was out of town), but he made up for it with a thoughtful and generous gift. So, we recognize issues can happen, but I... More

This is an wonderful B & B that is located close to Yellow Springs -- a very interesting fun village to wander and visit. Rooms are clean, comfortable and have little kitchens etc. I have stayed in all four of the rooms and recommend them all.

We stayed in the tower suite with our two young sons. We love being able to easily walk to downtown Yellow Springs and bike to the Little Miami bike trail. The room is spacious and clean. In the past we have used the well-stocked kitchen to make breakfast. The neighbor was very friendly, inviting our boys to explore her wildflower... More

Based on the previous reviews I was expecting an excellent accommodation and a unique experience. While there was nothing wrong, per se, with the property, it doesn't warrant such outstanding reviews based upon my experience. It was simply average. I stayed for a business trip in May and stayed one night. I was in the Jailhouse Tower Suite, and based... More
