We have been to the General Stanton Inn quite a few times and cannot wait to go back! We always have a great time, great food, great people, espically Cj and the bar tenders and waitresses and everyone there. They make you feel so welcome. What can I say, everything is great there. Can't wait to go back!
My wife and I decided to stop in on a Friday night last week. The decor of the restaurant is for the most part dull, and boring considering the history of the building. For dinner, we ordered the Fish n' Chips and Pasta Primavera. The fish n' chips were soggy and foul tasting and the Primavera was large enough for 3 people and was very overcooked. My wife and I planned on sitting at the bar afterwards for a few cocktails, but I only saw the bartender ONCE the 40+ minutes we were there. Do not waste your time at this establishment!
We loved the food at the General Stanton Inn Restaurant. I loved the old feeling of the whole place. I heard that there were ghosts that roamed the place and heard some stories. That was quite interesting.
We loved the old world feel of the place. The people running it was very nice and accomodating. The rooms were quite clean. The tavern was a lot of fun and the food at the General Stanton Inn restaurant was quite good.
We loved that the inn is quite old and that there is a lot of history and spirits about.
We look forward to going back when we visit Rhode Island.
I don't know where to begin. When I first arrived there, I couldn't find where checkin was. Once I found it, I was given a key to my room. I went to the room, and the door was wide open, the sheets were thrown on the ground (as were the pillows) and the towels were on the ground in the bathroom. I went back to the check in room, and they said "it will be ready in 20 minutes." I waited a half hour and still nobody. Finally a lady came to clean the room, and you should have seen the grungy box of old cleaners she brought with her. They don't vacuum the rooms, she didn't bring one of those. Naturally, I was appauled. I asked for another room. I was put into a shoebox of a room, the sheets hadn't been changed, and there was soap from the last guest in both the shower and on the sink. The toilet didn't work either. I naturally went back to the check in room to tell them of my findings. The manager (if you can even call her that) said, "what do you want to do about it?" First and for most it shouldn't be what I want to do about it, but what are you going to do about it. I worked in a Hotel for 6 years, we used to comp rooms for guests over matters ten times smaller than this. The General Stanton Inn knows nothing about hospitality. They offered me nothing, the said sorry not once, and they even had the audacity to tell me to leave. That's right, after all that happened to me, she swore cuss words at me, wrote down my liscence plate number for some reason, and told me to leave her INN. I didn't spend the night there, needless to say, and I was told that I wouldn't be charged. Guess who got their credit card statement and found a charge on it from the General Stanton Inn, this guy!!!! With what they charge you for a room, and for the service that is lacking there, I would suggest staying in your car over what they have to offer. Heed my warning, stay away from the General Crapton Inn!!!!!
I had to stay at the Inn for a wedding that I was attending. When reserving the room I was quoted one price. But upon arrival they charged us $40 more. The hotel room was a pit. It looked like the bathroom hadn't had a good cleaning in months, the room needed a good dusting. The wall paper torn in some places was way out dated. I understand the old feel of a place but this place was tacky. The front desk women was not so nice about refunding some of the money. The continental breakfast was a joke. I only took a banana and that was rotten from the top down. I wouldn't reccommend this place to anyone.
I would go with the other reviews I have
read.Has a few good points, but needs
improvements in check in service,no front
desk, hard to find help when needed.Room
was expensive for what it was,very small.
Very few people in resutrant and bar, reason i did not eat there. No breakfast
available, would be nice to get coffe at
least, had to drive to next town.In general
place needs to be a bit more professional.
Would look for a different place that offered
more things next time.
Upon arriving at the restaurant there were 3 people at the bar and no one in the dining room. We were four adults and 2 children. Another couple came in as we were ordering. Our order of calamari consisted of a small palm of calamari sitting on a very large bed of greens. The chicken marsala was made with a wine but, it was not marsala. The stuffed sole dinner with lobster sauce at $18.95 consisted of 1/4 cup of rice, 3 asparagus and 1 rolled piece of fish 2"long and 1" in diameter. We asked for more water and rolls when the waitress (Lilly) brought our food. Once served, she never came back with the water, rolls or to see if everything was o.k. But, she did find time to stand at the bar to talk to the bartender and other waitress who would break away to check on her customers. Lilly only came back to give us our bill. Which at this time, I reminded her about the rolls and water she forgot to bring us and to which she only shrugged and admitted to having a "brain fart". We left her a tip but we all walked away hungry and disappointed.
We loved the food, the atmosphere, and Excellent service! We really felt we were accomodated incredibly...We were drawn here to dance and were practically handed the entire ball room. What a wonderful place!!
