What a wonderful surprise in a small and friendly town. The rooms are very spacious and welcoming decorated in period style of the decades from 1920 through 1980. A common room with a kitchen, dining area, sitting room and a balcony great for the morning coffee or just relaxing. The staff were so nice and helpful. We can't wait for... More

This hotel will surprise you. The rooms are large and inviting. The decor in the 1920 room was very elegant and relaxing. Everything was to the 1920s. It has a nice balcony to sit on and open area to visit with friends or other quests. The local people in town are very friendly. I wish I could have stayed longer.... More

We loved our stay at the Plains Historic Inn. We can't say enough good words for how welcoming and courteous the staff were. We stayed in the 1940's room and the big cast-iron bathtub was my favorite part. Also, by staying at this Inn, they make sure you get a seat to hear President Carter teach Sunday School at Marantha... More

It's not a hotel, it's an experience! It is a JOY to stay here, and it feels like home. Every room reflects a decade from the 1920s to the 1980s and is decorated accordingly — Mrs. Carter herself picked everything out. The rooms are enormous, each with exposed brick walls and their own sitting area (I've peeked in all of... More

This is a wonderful experience for grandchildren and will help to instill a love of history in learning minds. Miss Jan runs this little Inn with military precision....well, she is in charge of briefing at the church as well as playing the piano. On second thought, I think she orchestrates all the activities in town. She is a delight and... More

If you plan to stay in Sumter County, whether for business or pleasure this is a wonderful inn. Very spacious decade themed rooms are well furnished and very comfortable. Large bathroom, sitting space and sleeping space with room In between. You even get to meet Mrs. Jan. Call waaaaaaay ahead for reservations. There can be a waiting list.

We went to the Maranatha Baptist Church this morning to hear former President Jimmy Carter teach us. It was life changing. Then to The Cafeteria to eat a great meal, served by incredible people. After filling our souls and bellies we went to the Inn. The greeting was, as expected, warm caring and friendly. After getting instructions to what we... More

We visited Plains to attend Maranatha Baptist Church to hear Jimmy Carter teach Sunday School class. What a visit! If you stay at the Inn on Friday, Saturday or Sunday night, you get prime seating for the class - worth the stay alone! Bed was very comfortable. With the Inn being an old building, you have some squeaky floors and... More

Although beautiful and historic (and the only hotel in town) I had to give the Inn a poor rating because I couldn't get any sleep in the huge four poster canopy bed in the Presidential Suite. The bed is difficult to get into and I'm 5'7". Most annoying was the fact that the only blanket on the bed, if you... More
