Just spent a great weekend at the Ruebel, Mo, the proprietor is very hands on and attentive. He is very friendly and exhibits a care about your stay which is really refreshing. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The attached restaurant and bar area is very cozy and they had nice entertainment on Saturday night. We will be back!

I was really impressed with the owner of this hotel, who seemed to be always doing some chore in the restaurant or in the hotel, and whom I could tell genuinely cared about the needs and wishes of each of his customers. I was most impressed in the restaurant, where it appeared to me there was an equal number of...

We stayed here for the weekend in the fall of 2015 for my birthday, and we had a wonderful experience. Our room had a pretty view of the river, the bed was comfy and the shower had plenty of hot water. They have a very nice patio area, and we met one of the owners (Karen, I think) out there....

We have always wanted to stay at the old hotel in Grafton but were disappointed in our stay. The room was very small and cramped. The TV was very hard to use and we had to have someone help get it turned on, even though there was a card with instructions on it that did not work. That night it...

Found the Reubel Hotel on Trip Advisor and glad we did. Reubel is on Main Street which puts you in walking distance of a lot of Grafton's attractions. Upon arrival we were greeted by Reid who was very accommodating during our stay. We were in the river view balcony room which offers a very nice view of the sunrise and...

Just got back and we were impressed. A very cool historic hotel. Room was very clean and nice. We had one of their basic rooms but it was still nice and comfortable. Staff was very friendly. Did not eat at the restaurant but had a few cocktails at the bar and enjoyed it. Located a short walk from the Loading...

We love going to the shops in Grafton, and decided to have lunch there also. We picked Ruebel Hotel. I wish we hadn't. First, we were greeted with a shout across the room to "sit wherever we wanted" even though the sign said please wait to be seated. So, we picked the table that was the least messy looking and...

we have stayed here twice in the last couple of months and will return again. charming, spotless rooms. the owners, who are the nicest people ever, have retained the vintage look of the hotels era but added all the modern conveniences, like ice cold air conditioning that you can control and a shower with more hot water and water pressure...

The restaurant was quite busy and I understand that it's hard to get every order right in that sort of situation; I am keeping this in mind with my review. However, I feel like the addition of one or two more servers and or cooks, especially on a Saturday afternoon, would definitely improve the customer's experience. I had the burger...

We recently spent a weekend at the Ruebel Hotel in scenic Grafton, Illinois and couldn't have been more pleased. If you are looking for a covered canopy, valet parking, or help with your luggage, keep looking. But if you want the charm that only a historic venue can offer, while sacrificing none of the comforts of modern hotels, the Ruebel...

We would like to take the time to thank you for your wonderful review. It is so nice knowing that we do please some people as we try our very best to always do that but sometimes it just doesn't work out that way. It was a pleasure having you as guests and we hope you return to us in...
