The Elms Hotel & Spa

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Rooms are small, partly renovated but could definitely be cleaner. Restaurant was delicious, especially breakfast buffet. Spa was very busy and a little over rated and over priced!

As soon as we arrived to the hotel, we received superior customer service. We were upgraded immediately since we were celebrating my birthday. The food, drinks, and ambiance were completely amazing! Will definitely come back to enjoy the lap pool and spa!

Enjoyed our stay at the historic Elms hotel. Walking distance to Wabash BBQ and downtown area.

Had a nice room but no maid service! Hotel was nice, but staff not very welcoming at front desk. Had a nice large pool outside. Didn't use any spa services. Food in restaurant and service there was a good.

The Elms is a historic hotel and the staff were great. The spa facilities and grotto were worth it. The room had no frig. or microwave and a bottle of coke was $3.00. The food was okay but a little high priced. The did not have the dessert we order and offered to substitute a new one not on the menu yet. It tasted great but no price adjustment at all. The historic downtown has a few good places to eat and shop, but over all is mostly run down with many stores closed.

Perfect place to spend time relaxing and unwinding. Beautiful hotel and surrounding area.

My wife and I took the weekend just to get away. Elms is perfect for that! The "Grotto" has all the spa water treatments one needs (mineral whirlpool bath, steam shower, wet and dry saunas, relaxing atmosphere.

Excellent hotel. My wife enjoyed the spa treatment

In short, the hotel was a wonderful experience. We found the hotel on Orbitz and it looked better than the hotels nearby. The lobby personnel were very helpful and explained all the amenities of the hotel and spa. Our room was on the cheaper side but was still very comfortable and very well furnished. The pool area was neat and had plenty of chairs and shade around the large pool. During the day, the waitstaff came around for drink and food service. There is a hot tub off to the side and a large firepit close by. My wife and I did the couples massage and the spa experience was incredible. Would definitely recommend it to anyone that stays there. The restaurant was decorated in dark leather and seemed formal but not that much. The waitstaff were very friendly, Kyle, I think, and Amanda were excellent hosts and were very attentive. The food was awesome to say the least and would eat there again. There is an underground lap pool with hot and cool tubs and was nearly empty every time we went down. There is a ghost tour of the hotel every night. Kinda pricey but good for history of the hotel. We will definitely stay there again!

This historic hotel is so beautiful. The grounds, the pools, the spa, the staff...everything was perfect. Lots of things to do but plenty of relaxation time.

We enjoyed celebrating our anniversary here over mothers day weekend. The pools were clean, the spa was perfect,

The hotel was very nice. The rooms could be bigger but overall a positive experience. I would definitely recommend this hotel to a friend.

Overall it was nice. I feel the room could have been larger with more amenities but it was ok. Nice and clean just small.

Loved the swimming pools.. AC was really load when it came on you couldn't hear the tv..other than that great hotel!

Everything was great. 35 minutes from Hwy 35 but we'll worth it. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Rooms are very nice and the hotel has a great feel to it. Outdoor and indoor pools and hot tubs are great. Staff is very friendly as well.

This was in the top 5 best hotels I have stayed in. It is lovely and the rooms are gorgeous, spacious, and incredibly comfortable. The beds are memory foam mattresses and the bedding is wonderful. The only thing I wished was that the spa was open later. I got in right at 6 and when I went down to the spa to try and get a treatment in they said they took their last appointment at 6. I went down at 6:15 ready to go, so I wished that they would have accommodated, but it was fine. I loved it.

This was a fantastic hidden gem. The history of the hotel was incredible. One of the nicest and most comfortable hotels we have ever used. Would recommend this hotel to anyone!!!

My family of all ages stayed here and there was something for everyone. Female and males enjoyed the spa. The lap pool was fantastic. The ghost stories added to the fun. The beds were very comfortable. 'really enjoyed our stay!

The recent renovations are very nice. Room great, food great, spa great. Can't wait to go back.
