WE RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE!! - July 2012 - From Virginia
Couldn't ask for a better hotel for our stay in Nauvoo. The room was clean, the staff very freindly and it's the best location in town ... accross the street from the temple. Would recommend this to anyone.

Right when we got there we were in the hands of a really kind and helpful hotel staff. Alex made us a delicious meal from the kitchen even though we arrived after it closed. Karen not only helped us find our room but made sure we had everything we needed for our time in Nauvoo. Very good service from everyone at the hotel. Thank you. We owe a great trip to Nauvoo to the staff of the Woodruff Hotel. Beautiful hotel and excellent staff. March 2012 – From Draper, UT
NAUVOO CHRISTMAS JOY - December 2011 - From Colorado Springs, CO
My family and my husbands parents spent the holidays in Nauvoo this year. Our hotel suite was like a cozy home. It was just so nice and comfortable. We will be back for sure and we highly recommend it to anyone ... we have already recommended to several of our family who plan to go to Nauvoo this summer. December 2011 – From Colorado Springs, CO
LOVELY PLACE TO STAY - July 2011 - From Salt Lake City, UT
We loved staying at the Zion's Mercantile Hotel / Woodruff Hotel room 205. It was very tastefully decorated and the staff quickly met all our needs. The hallways, stairs, and room doors of the Woodruff are pretty rustic so you feel like you're going back in time; however once you enter your room, it is totally up to date. July 2011 – From Salt Lake City
FABULOUS PERIOD HOTEL IN NAUVOO - July 2011 - From Pennsylvania, U.S.A.
Very clean, lovely rooms with early 1900's style furniture and a king size bed. Bathroom immaculate. Only draw back is no elevator in the old hotel if you are on the 3rd floor. Great to see Nauvoo temple lit up at night. Highly recommend! July 2011 – Pennsylvania

CLEAN & CHARMING - August 2011 - From Clearwater, FL
Very pleased with cleanliness. Cool location on the main street a block from the temple. Walls between rooms seem to be sound proof. Most comfortable hotel bed I have experienced in years. Wide gap below doors going into hall reduces some privacy. Overall very good.
PERFECT EXPERIENCE OF NAUVOO - June 2011 - From South Weber, UT
Our stay at Woodfruff Hotel - Zions Mercantile made our Nauvoo experience perfect! Our room overlooked the Nauvoo Temple. We arrived late in the evening and when we walked into our room and looked out our window, it was breathtaking. The building is an old remodeled of late 1800s. Even though it looked of age it was refreshing. The nostalgic decor and photographs and paintings helped make the atmosphere that much better. Staff was very nice. Made us feel like we were family. We will stay here again, next time we visit! â€¨We also recommend that you eat at the Zion Mercantile Store, next door. Great food! I think the best and the freshest in the area, that we found.
The Woodruff Hotel voted "BEST HOTEL IN NAUVOO" by the readers of LDS Living Magazine: In a survey of families who traveled to Nauvoo three specific features of the city rose to the top. 1) The historic homes were described as being "like Colonial Williamsburg." 2) The Woodruff Hotel at Zions Mercantile for their rooms with views of the Temple and the historic atmosphere of the hotel. 3) The delicious Fudge from the world famous Nauvoo Fudge Factory.
THANK YOU WOODRUFF HOTEL & STAFF - June 2011 - From Gilbert, AZ
My wife & I are so grateful to have found such a wonderful place to stay in Nauvoo. We took our trip to Nauvoo to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary and we stayed in your anniversary suite (room 202). The view of the Nauvoo Temple, the hotel room, the gift basket with chocolate and Nauvoo grape juice was more than we expected. Very very beautiful hotel and an even better staff. Thank you so much for such a nice time.
DRENCHED IN HISTORY AND ART - April 2011 - From Newport Beach, CA
There is no other place we could recommend as strongly as this one. We stepped outside onto our balcony and we were face to face with the Sunstones on the Nauvoo Temple. The rooms were clean and so enjoyable. The beds were the best I've ever slept in. We even wrote down the make of the bed we loved it that much. Great hotel !!

THE BEST ROOM IN NAUVOO - April 2010 - From Metamora, IL
We stay in Nauvoo several times a year and have stayed in a variety of rooms on those stays. We have been in the Zions Mercantile store several times and did not know they had rooms above the store. They are spectacular! We stayed in the Brigham Young Suite, which was much bigger than we expected. It was two huge bedrooms with a living room and kitchen area. It had an amazing view of the temple all lit up and you could see down to the river. The room was clean, nicely furnished and warm. The service was great. The room was wonderfully comfortable. It had both satellite tv and a DVD player in the room. The restaurant below was wonderful. The chocolate cake is a must try. It is also located so close to everything. It is right next to all our favorite places to visit while I am there- the temple, the fudge shop, the art gallery, the book store and on and on. This is by far the best room we have had in Nauvoo or even most other locations we have traveled to.
