I stayed here in July 2013 because of the rave reviews I read on TripAdvisor. It was warm, comfortable and while the decor was as comfortable as my grandmother's home, it was part of the charm of the B&B. I felt good here. The next morning I was running a little late and left the hotel leaving three VERY important...

I noticed this hotel several years ago while working in the area and decided then and there, if the opportunity came up, that is where I'd rather stay than the Super 8. I've been travelling a lot this year and am already burnt out on the usual places, I wanted someplace with character. This hotel is has a warmth that...

My wife and I had an awesome stay. Beautiful clean rooms that made you feel you went back in time. there are some older reviews that should be ignored. The new owner seams to really be doing a great job. We will be staying there again.

Stopped by for a short stay and enjoyed this place, which we pretty much had to ourselves. Rooms are decent sized, queen beds, desk, sitting chair, all decorated in nice period antiques. Some rooms are larger than others (multiple beds, refrigerators, sofas), so it pays to ask in advance about the rooms. We like old properties, so we accept flaws....

Although my entire family resides in and around Holton, our decision to stay at Hotel Josephine was perfect. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. From the moment we walked in it was obvious that we were in a clean, caring and comfortable environment. With our vacation starting off running for the airplane and continued with crazy,...
