  • Shabby Chic

    by Scarrble1 on 2017-10-10 08:40 am

    The lobby is interesting and inviting. The hotel staff is friendly. The rooms are shabby. Old furnishings and old style bathrooms. Uncomfortable beds and Flintstone pillows (hard as a rock). Window insert air conditioner (the room was really warm). Small screen tv. We've stayed in historic hotels before that are much nicer. The room was like staying in your grandmothers upstairs bedroom.

  • Great But for the Mattress

    Getting a room at this location is slightly confusing. We stopped for one night on a road trip and found there are three options: the historic hotel, the new Penn Wells Hotel and the Lodge. You can get room and price information at the new Penn Wells Hotel for all three but have to go down the block to check into the historic hotel. We opted for the new hotel though tempted by the historic. The Lodge looked a bit tired. The facility has a lovely pool and lobby. Our room was a king suite with fire place and comfortable sitting room. Our only complaint was the bed. The mattress seemed to have survived some earlier renovation and pillows were unyielding heavy foam lumps. Some independent hotels should copy the chain hotels like Hampton Inn and update linens and pillows.

  • Horrible "Hotel". But nice staff and our dinner was great.

    First of all, the Penn Wells Hotel is NOT the Penn Wells Lodge. Important distinction. The LODGE is a block down the street (owned by the same people) and is lovely. But the HOTEL. OMG. We booked online the day we were to stay. It looked charming on the outside and had a new "Historic Hotel" designation. When we checked in the smell is that of old old smoke (all over the lobby). It is not wood smoke, but old cigarette smoke and cigar smoke that just is seeped into everything from years. The ceiling tiles at the desk area are rotted and brown with leaks. Bad sign. The front desk (gentlemen) assured us that the Canyon (fall color) would be lovely! It was an unnecessary untruth but so bold. Can't hold him accountable for no color but to lie was wrong. The room. What can I tell you. The bathroom is ancient and not big enough to turn around in. Imagine an old hunting cabin bathroom. Then you have it. No shelves, exposed pipes, dirty floor. The windows are single pane glass so crusted with dirt that you don't want to touch them. The a/c is an old decrepit window unit that hangs out the window with a large crack for bugs to enter. Below that is an electic heater that you plug in. The "real" heat comes from somewhere in the hotel, no thermostat, and we roasted in that tiny room and could not breathe unless I opened that horrible window to let in the freezing air (ice on my windshield the next morning). Sick today with a cough. The elevator floor is beyond filthy (there is one). We saw and met four couples who all felt as we did. Unbelievable. We paid for our one night and were able to investigagte the Lodge and stayed there for our second night. Much much much better and great front desk (Debbie). Don't stay at the Hotel. It is awful.

  • Great dining in an old "classic" hotel

    by dariatv1234 on 2017-10-02 08:01 pm

    The menu items were varied, and as FOUR dinner guests, we each enjoyed a dish of our individual choosing. Service was good, attentive to detail, and the price was very reasonable. The evening dining hours stretched over a reasonable time. Also, the breakfast at the hotel was scrambled eggs, sausage, and a variety of other supplemental choices.

  • Wonderful Gilded Age Hotel

    We've been staying here since we were newlyweds -- 30+ years ago. The hotel has been dramatically updated in the past 10 years. If you are seeking 'modern' stay at the lodge. If you want to feel like you are in The Shining (in the best way) staying in a cool slice of history the hotel can't be beat. Wellsboro is one of the prettiest towns in Pa. and the Grand Canyon is awesome. Wonderful for hikers and bicyclists.
