Wow is all I can say! From the moment you walk in John is amazing! His attention to the details is amazing! The rooms are uniquely decorated and very comfortable. I think the breakfast surprised me the most, it was like a 5 star restaurant! We felt so welcome and at home! Everything is conveniently located near by! This will be the only place we will stay in Monroe!!
John Thomas has been blessed with an amazing gift of hospitality. Before we arrived he communicated with us in expediting our arrival. His lovely home has his meticulous eye for all that will make his guest feel pampered. The colors and decor of the home are bold and sumptuous. Unlike many B&Bs which are distinctly female frills--men and women will equally appreciate his home. The front porch was wonderfully restful with a porch swing and over-sized pillows which nearly convince you to simply remain on the porch for the entire visit. The location is perfect--we walked to shopping, dinner, and lunch. And then there is breakfast prepared for hours and lavishly served by our host. Thank you John Thomas for perfecting the talent of making your guests feel like royalty!
Great B&B in West Monroe. Tonya is an amazing proprietor and hostess. She has a terrific sense of style - the decor is top notch. We couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome, and it is clear that she has given a lot of thought to the comfort and happiness of her guests. Breakfasts were delicious and made to order. The only negative we can mention is the mini split air conditioning- we would have preferred a bit cooler temperature. A great find and very highly recommended.
We are so pleased that we found this little hidden gem tucked away next to the Cotton Port in downtown West Monroe! The house and rooms are beautifully appointed and John Thomas is the perfect host. We loved the quaint atmosphere of days gone by, from the manicured garden and the antique-filled rooms, to the charming shops and historical buildings within a few minutes walk...even down to the train rumbling past periodically throughout the day (no horns are blown along that stretch). We highly recommend the John Thomas Bed & Breakfast to anyone looking for a memorable stay in the Monroe-West Monroe area. Five stars in all categories (we did not take advantage of the dining option, but it smelled divine!).
My husband and I had to come to Monroe for a funeral. The owner was super accommodating and made sure we were able to check-in early to change. The room was beautiful. The breakfast was delicious and we enjoyed meeting the other guests. Highly recommend!
This was the first time my husband I and have gotten away for a night. We have been together 11 years. The staff was amazing. They welcomed us and even say with during breakfast telling us the history of the building.( we asked) The rooms were like home not just another hotel room. The stay was amazing and we will be back
My wife and I were in town for a family gathering. The John Thomas Bed and Breakfast made our trip even more special. Not only did we find our room very comfortable and interesting, but the common areas allowed us room to spread out. I must mention the front porch. What a special place to relax and watch the world go by. I'm already looking forward to our next visit.
Anytime I have people from out of town ask where to stay I always recommend The Hamilton House and the people who stay absolutely love it. Great location, beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast, and 5 star service from reservation to checkout.
Stayed here for a girls weekend. Loved that The Hamilton House is right by the shops. This B&B is decorated so nicely. Tonya is a friendly hostess and Shawn made a delicious breakfast. We will definitely stay again. Sandra Fargerson, Bossier City, LA
We stumbled across the Hamilton House Inn while looking for another business location in the area. What a find! Newly renovated with charm and comfort. Highly recommend to anyone spending time in the Monroe, LA area.
My girlfriend and I recently stayed at John's B&B and had a simply wonderful experience! i highly recommend staying here if you are in town; we will definitely stay again. The property has a great location, and is kep up beautifully. And the food and attention to detail, from check in to check out, was outstanding. Highly recommended!
Such a wonderful bed and breakfast with the most gracious host. Everything far exceeded our expectations. The balcony was very enjoyable and gave us a chance to meet other guests. The breakfast was beyond excellent. Hopefully we will be staying with you again, very soon.
We loved our stay there but I when asked if I wanted breakfast I said yes. My wife and I were never given breakfast and had to leave to eat elsewhere. Other than this, we enjoyed our stay and will hopefully come back soon!
Stayed here for our 39th anniversary-loved it! Great restaurant is just across the street, bed was very comfortable, room was quiet (never heard the other guests at all). Breakfast was so good that I did something I have never done - ask for a to-go bag! There was so much that I could not finish it. Would definitely recommend this place!
We stayed here on our way from Florida back to Oklahoma. I'm so glad we did! The Alexis room is gorgeous. Even though the inn keeper couldn't be there her son served an excellent breakfast. We will absolutely be back!
This was my first time staying at a B&B and I absolutely loved it. Felt like I was staying with a friend. Comfortable, clean, and so gorgeous. The owner cares for his place well, he also care about the comfort of his guests. Room cooled to perfection, decor lovely to just stare at, refrigerator stocked. I have already spread the word of my joyful stay and will continue to because I know I'll be back.
The room, while small was adequate. You could set up an office in the shower it was so large. The location is excellent being only a few seconds from the bridge to Monroe. Since the flood, safe rooms in the twin cities are unreasonably priced and this is less than half the price of some of those rooms. The owner lives on site and the service is unsurpassed. My mother still lives in Monroe and I will be returning to this wonderful B&B.
Billy and Nicole here. Stayed at our good friend Tonya's" Hamilton House" this past weekend.. Room was so beautiful and comfortable.. great bed, great linens and perfectly kept... the only thing better than the wonderful breakfast and beautiful surroundings was the great hostess we had in our very dear long time friend Tonya Hamilton! This stay was just one of many more to come.. We LOVE this place.. (p.s. Thom is some sort of master carpenter, plumber, tile mason, paper hanger, floor layer... to have turned this old relic into an 5 star luxury B&B!) We love you Thom and Tonya!
