    Historical Traveler Reviews 1890 Williams House Inn Hot Springs

    Unglaubliches Erlebnis


    Wir hatten ein unglaublichen Aufenthalt dort. Die Unterkünfte und die Gastfreundlichkeit waren super. Dieses ist ein prachtvolles Haus, voll mit tollen antiken Möbel. Unser Zimmer "Williams Suite" hatte das beste Bett, in dem wir je geschlafen haben und wir waren ganz begeistert vom Whirlpool für zwei Personen, es war wirklich traumhaft. Karen & David waren perfekte Gastgeber. Sie waren freundlich und hilfsbereit, aber nicht aufdringlich. Das war auch gut so, denn wir wollten in Hot Springs viel Zeit miteinander verbringen und uns entspannen. Das Frühstück wurde jeden Morgen aufs Zimmer gebracht und es war lecker. Wir können diese wundervolle Pension empfehlen und wollen im Herbst auch wieder hin. Was für ein unglaubliches Erlebnis!

    Wonderful Stay


    We had a great stay at the Williams House B&B. The owners were very helpful and our room was excellent. We travel to Hot Springs once a year & we have found this to be the best place to stay.

    Incredible Experience


    We had an incredible experience, the accommodations & hospitality were outstanding. This is a grand house and is filled with gorgeous antiques. Our room "Williams Suite" had the best bed we have ever slep on & we loved the two person whirlpool tub "this was a treat beyond compare". Karen & David were perfect hosts, they were very friendly and helpful but they did not invade our private time. This was perfect as we went to Hot Springs to spend some quality time together & relax. Breakfast was brought to our room each morning & was delisious. We recommond this wonderful place to all & are planning to return this fall. What an incredible experience!

    Great Stay


    We always stay at a B&B when we travel & The Williams House is our favorite. We have stayed at the Williams House B& B four times now. We love this B&B and David & Karen always make us feel welcome. This time we stayed in the Williams Suite & it is grand and has everything we could ever want. Breakfast is always delicious. We always stay at the Williams House when we go to Hot Springs & have a wonderful time. We would recommend this B& B to everyone. Sara & James

    Rude Innkeepers!!!!!!


    I felt complelled to write this review because I did not want other travelers to stay at this "very rude" bead and breakfast.

    My husband and I wanted to try a bed and breakfast for the first time and should have listened to our friends advise. They all told us to only stay at the

    "1884 Wildwood". The rooms were all booked which should have told us something right away. So we went with the Williams House.......................

    The innkeepers//help were all very rude and did not attend to any of our simple requests. We did not ask for much and did not get much for the prices they were charging us. The breakfast was cold and nothing to write home about. Any questions we had about the house were brushed off with a maybe later.

    We simply will NOT be back and have already made reservations at the "Wildwood" for our next stay!!

    We have friends that have been to the Wildwood 3-4 tmes per year!!!

    Good luck Williams House---you are going to need it to keep the doors open.

    Impersonal & Rushed


    The facilities were quite nice, but the hostess was rather impersonal, and seemed to always be in a rush when dealing with us. We also felt rushed to leave. There was a maid there 30 minutes before check-out time knocking on the door. Breakfast was at 9:00, and we had to be out by 10:00. so we already felt pushed with such an early check out time to begin with, and having to climb up, and down, a very large flight of stairs to load up.

    Very Romantic


    My husband gave this trip to me for Christmas in 2002. We went in February 2003. Beautiful home, beautiful rooms with an added bonus of the two-person jacuzzi tubs. Excellent breakfast. The female host wasn't very friendy and made an issue of our arrival time - which was within their designated arrival guidelines. Thought she might be having a bad day, but according to the other reviews - it's a common attitude.

    Greatest place ever!


    My husband and I just got back from our honeymoon in Hot springs. We stayed in the Parlor Suite here at the Williams House. From the moment we entered the door until we left, all I could say was "This is so great!!" The house is beautiful and very elegantly decorated with lots of antiques and books. Everything was so ornate. Our room was WONDERFUL and I wanted to stay forever. The breakfasts are delicious and fancy and just enough. The history of the house (in a book upstairs) was interesting. If you go to the house's website and see the Parlor Suite's pictures, the room has been updated a little since then, and looks great. Karen and David (the innkeepers) are a little reserved, but once you get them talking they are nice. I really wanted to move in. It was a wonderful place to spend our honeymoon and I can't wait to go back!!

    What a wonderful place!


    My husband and I were coming back to Texas from a long trip and we decided at the last minute to stop in Hot Springs for the baths. We got into town around 7PM and started making calls. The owners of the B&B told us to "come on up and take a look." What we found is one of the prettiest places we have ever stayed. We stayed in a suite that was bigger than some apartments I have lived it! The two person jucuzzi tub was wonderful and romantic. The owners/innkeepers were very nice and didn't mind stopping and recommending a bath house or a place to eat.

    My husband and I were already planning our next trip to the 1890 Williams House before we got out of Hot Springs.

    Nice historic B&B, unfriendly hostess


    My husband and I stayed at the Williams House over a weekend in fall 2002. The house itself and the accommodations are very nice and the grounds were very pretty. It was quiet and relaxing. However, we did think the owner could've been a LOT more friendly. She rarely smiled and seemed rather hurried to deal with us. She practically scolded another couple who wanted to skip breakfast to get an early start home. The breakfasts were ok, not quite filling enough for the price you pay to stay there. They were very dainty. Overall, it was a nice place to stay. But for a B&B, we just expected a warmer, friendlier welcome.

    ... a well maintained, paved walking path. I'm sure there are usually 1000s if people, but at times I found myself alone in the high cavern. This is one of the "must see" NPs. The tour was very good, and had the maximum number of 50 people. After the tour, I decided to walk backup the way I came and had even more time to myself. A very impressive National Park. After a lot of back-and-forth with myself, I decided ...

From there we drove to Little Rock Central High School, an early flashpoint in the fight to desegregate public schools. It is still an active high school, so we made the most of the visitor center across the street. Then on to Hot Springs and the unexpected rally. We had lunch at the Superior Bathhouse ...

Might not have time to go into town as we have no extra time ( misjudged the number of miles to Nashville). Maybe Rachael won't mind if we arrive later tomorrow. I really wanted to see this place.
