We were attending an auction in a nearby town and picked the Elm Hotel to stay in. I thought everything was very nice. The food was good in the Eighty-Eight, the Tavern was a nice place to sit and have a couple drinks. We didn't get to visit the spa or use the 2 different pools but they looked great....

I bet every room in this hotel has a lovely view. Our room was on the first floor but still up a ramp so we overlooked the pool and gardens. It was lovely to see the fireflies throughout the gardens and forest. Speaking of the gardens, the grounds are lovely. We saw a huge owl sitting in the trees above...

Great property. Had an excellent time with the kids and wife. We will return, but will most likely not eat at the restaurant. Price did not match quality of the food. Indoor pool is great and service at the hotel was too notch.

The hotel is old and full of history. Ghost tour with Jay was great and filled in nicely about the history of the hotel. We had a late check in and a regular check out. Appreciated being able to use the pools and tubs until midnight. Our room was clean but not fancy by any means. Cost of the stay...

First let me say, I am not a Hotel/Motel snob. I am very comfortable at Holiday Inns, Drury Inns, etc. So with that being said, I honestly say that I was greatly disappointed . My husband and I did not have any plans for a massage or facial. Just wanting to "get away" to some "resort type" setting. Wanted to...

Last year, we visited The Elms Spa as a treat for my sister's 50th birthday. Unfortunately, due to to the heavy rains and flooding, they had to close the spa and we had to scramble for alternate plans. The hotel very graciously invited us to return after repairs had been made so we could have the experience that we had...

I spent three nights (days) at The Elms and had an incredible experience. This was a daughter/granddaughter/me trip ... and was a super "girls getaway" for us. From my first phone call for a room reservation, I should have known that I wouldn't be disappointed. I spoke with Justine (in Reservations) on more than one occasion as the trip was...

We have been visiting the Elms since the early 1990s before the renovations. It's gone from sad to grand! The standard rooms are small but comfortable. The suites are spacious and really well done. We stayed with a large family celebrating a 50th anniversary. Staff was fabulous. Best of all, though,was the Ghost Tour which is held nightly. It adds...

Nice room for me and my daughter. Beautifully furnished, very nice bathroom. Wish there had been a fridge. The spa was one of the best experiences I have ever had. The atmosphere is deliteful and the grounds are beautiful. 2 meals in the restaurant were JUST right. Would love to come back again for my husband and my anniversary.
