Great little historic hotel

4.4 on April 30, 2018

I’ve stayed here a couple of times in recent years while in the area on hunting trips. Very cool building in a quaint little downtown. Almost feels like you’ve stepped back in time 150 years in some ways. Very friendly and accommodating staff and owners. Considering the age of this hotel, they do a great job with it. This isn’t the height of modern luxury, but you’ll enjoy the experience.


Beautiful, large bright rooms

Staff could not have been friendlier or more accommodating! This place was a wonderful surprise. Thank you for all your kindness and service


Amazing!!!

This was a delightful place to stay. The building, which dates back to before Abe Lincoln (who use to visit here on breaks from the courthouse across the street) has been restored to its "glory days". The owners have done a beautiful job. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The bed was comfortable - and our room even had a fireplace. We would stay again!


Perfect Choice!

We chose this place because of the name, we knew nothing about it. We were so happy with everything! The look, the staff, the comfort, the price all A-one! Recommending it to friends of our, and we hope to return also. A great hotel, with something to smile about everywhere you look. Only drawback for some might be lack of elevator, but no problem for us. Great place to stay with all the amenities of a chain, only so much better!


Amazing!

We came to town to visit family, and booked our stay with the Watson! From the first phone call through our entire visit, they made it absolutely wonderful! ALL of the staff was extremely accommodating, kind, caring, always asking if we needed anything and making sure our stay was great! We loved having Free Press coffee right there as well! It was wonderful waking up and smelling the aroma! Our hotel was exceptionally clean, super comfortable, we slept wonderfully! Just truly a wonderful atmosphere! We will only be staying at the Watson! See ya in a couple months!


Clean and Comfortable with an artistic flare

Stayed at the William Watson for a recent visit with family. Roomy and comfortable accommodations. Lovely art and repurposed furniture. Comfortable bedding. Friendly staff. Great food and coffee at the adjoining cafe with more art and lots of lovely books.


Great experience

Amazing place to stay!

My husband and I were on our way to Missouri from Chicago. We got stuck in a snow storm and did a quick search for places to stay nearby and William Watson came up. We were skeptical about booking it but had no choice. We were pleasantly surprised. It was one of the best BnBs we have ever stayed in. The owners are amazing and very friendly. We are definitely going back. TJ
