I have visited The Henry Clay Inn on several occasions, and I am always pleased. The building has lovely architecture, with sitting rooms on the first 2 floors and a big wide front porch. It is extraordinarily quiet even when trains pass. The building and windows don't even rattle when the train passes! The inn keepers are wonderfully helpful and...

Your kind and lovely comments are being shared with our entire team. Thank you for taking the time to write such a nice note. Richmond may be close however The Henry Clay Inn offers a wonderful get-a-way from the Richmond traffic. Keep spreading the good news and come back soon. Best always John & Grace

Stayed here with my family on a recent work trip to Randolph-Macon College. The hotel is absolutely beautiful. Rooms were clean. My son loved the games available on the second floor. Breakfast was nice and staff were friendly. I was sad when it was time to check out. I felt lucky they we got to stay there.

Our weekly meeting room is at The Henry Clay Inn. The owner is gracious and helpful when we need something and always takes time to speak. My experience with them has been positive and fellow Rotarians that have had their Sunday Brunch tell me it's quite good.

My daughter and I stayed at the Henry Clay Inn for 2 nights. The Innkeepers were so thoughtful and thorough. They do not miss a beat. We had a room on the first floor back of the building. You can go onto the porch and right to the parking area from your room, great feature. It was quiet even when...

Nice stay. The room was clean, updated. Comfy bed, surprisingly quiet given proximity to tracks. Good location, friendly hosts, excellent breakfast. Great porches both off of common area and off of room. Looks like a lot of the problems in other reviews were under old management; we didn't have any of the issues mentioned.

I have stayed here numerous times. The Inn is under new management. The provided breakfast is cooked to order: eggs, bacon, toast, bagles, cereal, juices, etc. New management is updating the rooms which are nice. Room rates are mid range for this type of inn. The inn is historic and located behind the Amtrak station. Frequent trains but the noise...
