The Inn was comfortable, clean, reasonably priced and very convenient to Old Salem and other Winston sites. It is an older property, but is well kept up. And it has a nice pool!

It's easy to get to and comfortable.

Upon entering, the interior appears as if it is from 1998 with zero updates since then. I felt like I was stepping back in time into a once bustling conference center that may have been bought out by someone who did not bother to update it or it’s exterior whatsoever. I stayed here twice due to convenience and cleanliness. Both times (and on multiple occasions,) I could smell weed being smoked by other guests. I’m not against it, but I certainly didn’t want to smell it. Most of the guests I saw appeared “shady.” Their free breakfast was horrible (and limited) aside from fruit. Not everyone can or wants to eat bread. Unfortunately, I have a stupid gluten intolerance. Would have been nice to have some hard boiled eggs available instead. Poorly/barely occupied. Just disappointing.

I liked the facilities and the area

This was a fine property for the price. I would definitely stay here again. Great location and convenient. Clearly dated, but what do you expect for $98 a night.

Breakfast included - is a stretch. Should say muffin included.

Nice old hotel! Updated rooms and very friendly staff and close to downtown!

It seemed central to everything. Staff were friendly and helpful.

This is a conveniently located and affordable pet-friendly hotel. We were very happy with our stay and I would stay here again in Winston-Salem. It is a 10 minute walk from downtown through a safe (including at night), but somewhat empty commercial area with some residences. What we didn't realize is that down the block from the hotel are nice coffee shops and bakeries and a good Mexican restaurant across the street. To the south is a nice residential neighborhood and Old Salem Village, which makes it a great area to walk dogs while on your stay. Highly recommended.

This is a nice renovated nostalgic property. The staff was helpful. Only complaint is that on Saturday night I contacted the Front Desk to share that someone was running up and down my hallway on the 5 th floor. Nothing was done to resolve the problem. Everything else about my stay was satisfactory.

Staff was helpful and friendly. Good location near extensive pet walking options. Good breakfast options. Excellent showers and beds. Carpets are old in the hallways and one in my room showed repairs and needs to be replaced. Good value for the cost.

This is the second stay at the Hawthorne. Rooms are nice and the breakfast is excellent.

Good: Good value for the price, clean rooms & bathrooms and clean public spaces, excellent staff. Bad: Back door didn't accept keycards, poor building design, convention center issues, inconvenient location, inconsistent breakfast options.

Dear Gina, Thank you for staying with us. We have just started our limited continental breakfast instead of a grab-a-go bag. Our limited continental breakfast includes coffee, juice, muffins, bagels, and fresh fruit. We also have a hot breakfast option available for $10.00 per person plus tax. We have just updated all of the landscaping outside. We hope you will give us another try in the future. Sincerely, Hawthorne Inn Management
