Great time, nice, comfortable rooms if you appreciate antiques. Very clean. We were very happy with the rooms/grounds, not at all what we expected after reading the reviews. Honestly, for the price and the amount of time you spend in the room it is perfect. This place is a hidden gem and I suggest you stay here before someone buys...

I'll start off by saying I didn't even get the chance to stay here. The woman on the phone (the owner, no less) was incredibly rude, even while trying to make a simple reservation. She continually interrupted me, and was overly aggressive in asking what time I would show up (initially saying my arrival time was unacceptable to her) and...

My fiance and I went down to Charlestown last minute to visit his parents for the 4th of July. There was no room at their house, so she called around to find us a room at a local hotel/motel. The only room she found available was at the General Stanton Inn. She informed Janice, the owner, that she wanted to...

Was hopeful as I needed a room for one night in Charlestown... Unfortunately the owner/manager appears to have a behavior disorder that interferes with good business practice. Unable to have a conversation without her responding irrationally. Room was dirty and musty. Don't ask to see a room....extremely threatened by the request. Shower was cold water, owner accused me of breaking...

On the positive side, the location is justt off Rte 1 and close to the beaches. The value was good, also. However, the property was run down, weeds everywhere, peeling paint, mildew. We found trash under the bed. That skanked us out, however the beds appeared to be clean as was the bathroom. We were disappointed to not be staying...

We were in the Charlestown area over the weekend and stayed at another facility that I will not mention. I had attempted to make a reservation with Janice (the owner) for the weekend but the inn was completely booked for Labor Day. Instead, we stopped by the flea market on Sunday to say hello to Janice and check the place...

Many years ago my husband and I stayed at the General Stanton Inn. Upon our return this year, we were happy to find Innkeeper Janice Falcone still in residence. The room was pleasant and clean just as we remembered some twenty five years ago and to find “Janice” still presiding made it that much more special! The Genera Stanton Inn...

We stayed at the General Stanton Inn August 2012. As soon as we unlocked the outside door and entered the hallway this horrible musty gross smell just hit us! Once we entered our room it was the same thing, extremely musty/moldy!! The area rugs looked like they have never been cleaned. We immediately put the a/c on and actually opened...

We stayed in the General Stanton Inn in August 2011 which we had pre-booked following their information on their website. The most deceiving ever! While there may be some nice rooms in the main building, not that we were told about them even after offering to pay any rate for the night's stay, we were put into the motel style...
