Negative Reviews

Not everybody gets to stay in mansion.

Some guests booking a stay at Jared Coffin House are disappointed to learn that they are not guaranteed a stay in the historic mansion itself. The hotel places guests in both the mansion and Daniel Webster House, an annex building, which, while comfortable enough, is said to lack the impressiveness of the main building.

Breakfast is somewhat lacking.

A continental breakfast is served each morning but, while some guests find this to be adequate, others are less impressed. According to reports, there is little to choose from, while presentation is said to be lacking.

Small rooms and thin walls disappoint.

A number of guests have been disappointed by the size of guestrooms, reporting that accommodations are on the small side. Meanwhile, the hotel is said to suffer from thin walls, which can result in disturbances from not-so-noisy neighbors.
