We were happy with our stay. The bed and the shower were the highlights of the room. It was a little too much light in the room due to a window over the door, but we were so tired and the bed was comfortable, so it did not hamper our sleep. Our room did not have a tub, but that was fine for us because the we had a nice roomy shower that worked well. Our favorite thing about the stay was the delicious breakfast! The only suggestion would be that they need a bell at the front desk because we just stood around in the lobby twice waiting for someone to notice us.

We arrived on Thanksgiving eve. Susan is a most gracious person. The hotel is in a beautiful setting, with a wonderful gazebo and garden are in the back. This all in a downtown area. Our room was directly above the kitchen and upon arrival they were in preparation stages for the Thanksgiving feast that was served the next day. We had a very quiet night. The room was in need of some sprucing-up but clean and comfortable. The morning comp. breakfast choices were very gooooood! We had reservations for the Thanksgiving lunch, once again all of the choices were excellent and eat all you wanted. They served from 11:00 till 2:00 non stop. My only complaint (being a coffee) is that there was no morning coffee. Susan, her Husband and all of the staff were very thoughtful and tended to our every need. They were starting to decorate for Christmas and the Hotel was starting to look wonderful.

I highly recommend the Woodbine! It was the perfect weekend get-away. If I'm ever in Madisonville again, I will definitely stay there!

Old West Charm - the pictures do not do the place justice. Granted, I arrived late so I had to enter from the back, but you drive through what looks like a junkyard to get to a dirt parking lot. The place looks like it has not been painted since the whitewash done when the place was built. Cute patio and stairs are sturdy. The room had a horrible musty smell and the wall paper has not been changed since the owners bought the place. Furniture is cute. Don't plan on taking a bath or shower unless you are a gymnist or over 6 feet tall - you can't climb over the edge of the tub without a stepstool, which is not provided. Can't sit on the side of the tub because they have those awful sliding doors. (The towel racks on the shower doors are what they are calling "grab bars".) Had to kill a wasp when I turned on the water. Good water pressure, though. Bed was okay. Never found the breakfast or where to turn in my key. Saw someone in the back that I asked. He said nothing and held out his hand for the key.

I loived the place and my son claims to even had an encounter with one of Woodbines ghostly tennants while in the bathroom taking a shower. Never told him about the place having ghosts so this was a little exciting when he came out of the bathroom telling me what he encountered. No harm was done they seem to be friendly but to those unsuspecting individuals they are a little exciting! Thanks Woodbine and I would deffinately stay there again!

We enjoyed our stay at the historic Woodbine Hotel. We were headed to Galveston for the weekend, but needed to spend the night a few hours away to cut our trip time to a manageable time frame. Madisonville was a perfect solution! We were pleased with the property, the decor, and the staff. The room was a little smaller than where we have stayed in the past, but the omelet at breakfast was more than enough to make up for it!
