Verified Reviews of Publick House Historic Inn & Country Motor Lodge

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Rooms need Updating!"
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Got to the hotel and we were going to the upper level. When we drove up it was very dated and run down looking. Almost like it was neglected and there were no other rooms available so they stuck us up there. The outlets were falling out of the wall and if we tried to plug something in the plug would fall out. There was a burn mark in the floor from the iron. The toilet was wobbly and the bathroom was dated with yellowing caulking in the tub. Water pressure was poor and the shower head just sprayed lightly with no hot water. The room was incredibly dated and felt like I was in the 1970's. It would be a nice space if it was updated and safe.

"Quaint But Loud."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Arrived for a wedding (a little bit of a wedding factory, but that's okay) and was very impressed with charm of the Publick House. Came to the room and it was nice comfortable bed, nice sitting area, two bathrooms. Attended a great wedding until 10:00 pm, then returned to our room around 10:30 pm. This was when we attended our second, uninvited wedding reception. The music was so loud through the paper thin walls from the adjourning function room that we couldn't hear the TV in our room. I called the front desk shortly before midnight to ask when it might end. I called a second time shortly after midnight (above the melodious Isley Brothers "Shout"), to be informed it should be ending soon. Quaint, but bring your earplugs.
