We were on our way to Virginia from Jacksonville, FL and stopped at the Ashford Inn for the evening. The staff was warm and inviting and accommodated our late check in. The room was cozy and the food was outstanding. We also enjoyed the full time access to wine and spirits. We will definitely consider coming back if the opportunity presents itself.
My husband and I usually stay overnight in a hotel chain along 95 on our way to our Hilton Head vacation. A search for a B&B in North Carolina turned up the lovely Ashford Inn, a short detour off 95. The inn has 6 guest rooms all with private baths and are very comfortable with lots of charm. Upon arrival innkeeper Julie gave us a short history and tour of the inn..Cozy sitting areas, a well stocked honor bar, and tranquil back yard with seating and a hammock. After settling in, we walked 2 blocks to Alfredo's for a great dinner in downtown Clinton. Clinton definitely has a lot of small town charm. The next morning, we headed downstairs for a gourmet breakfast at the requested time of 7 am. It was nice to be able to pick our time for breakfast. Breakfast started with coffee, juice and watermelon balls with mint. Very refreshing That was followed by coconut crusted french toast with bananas and warm syrup. Very good and filling! We wished we could have lingered, but we enjoyed the country scenery on our way back to 95S. I highly recommend this inn for a relaxing stay away.
Can't praise the Ashford Inn and innkeeper Julie Stadig enough. We were in town to visit relatives in Clinton and would have been happy with a clean and quit place with a comfortable bed but were pleasantly surprised. I had called the day before to arrange an earlier check-in which was no problem at all. We were met at the door at the appointed time and given a brief tour and history of the Inn before being shown to our room. The inn is immaculately kept just as if it were a home and is very comfortable. Our room was as beautiful as the rest of the house with a very comfortable queen size 4 poster bead, a side table and chair, a desk with another chair, an armoire holding a flat screen tv and a fairly spacious bathroom. The room had it's own thermostat and the air conditioning was more than adequate in spite of the temperature being near 90. The shower had plenty of hot water and good flow. It was one of the best showers I've encountered in a hotel of any size and the bathroom was spotless and hairless. The Inn is located in a quiet area and the room was dead quiet at night as well. If that wasn't enough included was a full breakfast including pancakes with homemade whipped cream, bacon, fresh fruit, orange juice and coffee....all served on real china. My wife and I both agree that we will be staying there for all future visits to Clinton.
Thank you Julie and staff for a wonderful stay with you at the Ashford Inn. I was in town on business for four weeks and booked my entire stay with you - glad I did. You have "nailed" the Bed &Breakfast experience - BED (very comfortable beds) BREAKFAST (wonderful and creative). I would definitely stay here again.
Passed through Clinton, NC on our way to Wilmington to visit our niece. Had booked a night at Ashford Inn through Hotels.com. Arrived later than we expected, but received a very gracious welcome from Julie. She gave us a tour of the house, showed us our room and gave us some suggestions for where to find a nice dinner. Slept well, despite some traffic noise, and arose to a lovely breakfast of Huevos Rancheros, cheese grits and fresh fruit. My husband, who is not a huge fan of grits, loved these. And they were very creamy and rich. We had a lovely, long conversation after breakfast with Julie and her friend Melissa. We look forward to staying again at a later date.
We were looking for a place to stay in an area we thought would out of the way with not many options. We were extremely happy to have stumbled on to the Ashford Inn. The bed was so comfortable I was tempted to stay in it longer but we needed to get rolling. It was very clean and the breakfast was tasty. I would definitely recommend it as a place to stay.
Ashford Inn delivered on a cozy and relaxed night for me, just what I needed before a triathlon the next day. Sweet room with everything I could need. Had a tv glitch and they were up there ready to fix in a jiffy. I did not get the pleasure of breakfast the next day because I left so early but they had ready a banana and homemade muffin to set me up for a great race. Thank you!
Only had time for a late arrival, one night stay. We would have liked to had more time just to linger on the property and enjoy the historical ambiance. Small town shops looked interesting, but we had to leave after breakfast. The breakfast was gourmet-simple and very satisfying. We were pleasantly surprised by the "chef's" choice and preparation of our meal. Next time, we WILL stay longer.
I travel a good bit and stay in hotels. I have been fortunate enough to find the Ashford Inn for when I travel to Clinton for my company. The house is beautiful and every room is beautiful so don't worry about which one to pick. There are a couple of comforts also that add to the stay...there's a Keurig upstairs in the hallway for guests to use so I can get that early morning cup of coffee while I get ready and I enjoy having a glass of wine at the bar and living room to unwind and chat a bit before going to dinner. Couches are comfy. Breakfast is delicious, my favorite is the texas french toast and the little croissants that come with the egg frittata. And oh yeah, don't forget the hosts, Patty and Mason are so nice and welcoming and make a good team.
We pass through Clinton several times a year and always stay at the Ashford Inn. The rooms are wonderful, the breakfast always tasty and the owners do everything they can to make the stay enjoyable. A true treasure off the beaten path.
Off the beaten path and nestled on beautiful grounds you feel welcomed instantly by witty Mason and his lovely wife Patty. The House is gorgeous, super clean and beautifully decorated.The room was comfortable and the bed provided a good night sleep. The next morning you may help yourself with some early morning coffee next to your room or later on a yummy breakfast will await you while you have a chance to talk to the lovely owners. Lovely stay and all the Best to you Mason and Patty! Marlene and Nabil,
The Ashford Inn was wonderful, and certainly met our expectations. While the walls were perhaps a bit thin, the setting and accommodations were outstanding, and the service was wonderful. We really have no complaints. It was a very nice experience, and they went out of their way to accommodate special requests.
