  • Huge disappointment - go elsewhere!

    by 1AnnetteB on 2018-07-12 09:25 am

    Stayed at the Penn Wells Hotel in the King room w/ separate sitting room. When we pulled up, I immediately said - this can't be the place.....oh, but it was. The room was NOTHING like the pics on hotel website. Furniture & carpeting was a throwback to 70's & 80's - completes with stains. The bathroom was one of the worst I've ever been in - including a hole from the closet where they had to fix the plumbing - and then boarded up with plywood & painted...all by what must have been a 5 year old. Truth be told, the historic sense of this hotel ends with the story itself. The Saturday night dinner was worse than a heated, re-frozen and then re-heated TV dinner - I couldn't even cut my chicken, nor did I eat more than a few bites. I am utterly shocked to hear anyone would return. On a good note - the staff are all very friendly. Save your money and from this hotel!

  • Welcoming and efficient staff

    Stayed for 4 days. Enjoyed the hospitality and atmosphere. Enjoyed the lounge area, the food, and great beer selection. The french fries, in particular, are most likely the best in town. Bar staff was knowledgeable and held great conversation. I stayed in a comfortable Queen room. The pillows had a great diversity of soft and firm. I brought my own pillow as a seasoned traveler regularly does, however, I didn't need it for this location. The rooms are conservative (no fridge and awkward looking window units for A/C) but it is part of their vision to keep the hotel true to its late 19th and early 20th century roots. The window units worked well and are up to date. I will stay here every time I visit family in the area. The best place to stay in town.

    My husband just loved this historic hotel. I liked parts of it but not all.

    The lobby, restaurant, and lounge have a lovely period look with ornate woodwork and era-appropriate furnishings.
    The elevator was also old-school fitting 4 people max. It broke down for a short period of time weekend we were there.
    The wallpaper on the sleeping floors is looking old and worn and needs replaced. The more modern plumbing and electrical run outside the walls. Our sleeping room had a king bed, 2 Queen Anne's chairs, a small student desk, and a small chest-of-drawers. It was difficult to move around due to the rooms small size. Being an old hotel, no central air. One window air condition that makes the room temperature somewhat acceptable. The bathroom was approximately 5 1/2 feet by 6 feet.
    The fire-alarm went off two nights in a row while we were there. No fire.. just the system not working right.
    The complementary Sunday brunch ($18.95) to non-guests, was average, at best. (If you are a non-guest, don't pay the money for it.) Although they had a person making omelets to order, the pancakes and french toast were both room temperature; the scrambled eggs just slightly warm. The waitress forgot some of the items we asked for and I had to get up twice to get my own coffee since they didn't auto-refill or come around to check. The restaurant itself had some wonderful photographs of Wellsboro "back in the day" ... before and after horse-less carriages. The pianist was average.
    Would I stay there again... err..prefer not to. But, my husband would. It's an old historic hotel and you have to be into that. But, you can't beat the location.

  • It is as described.... historic hotel

    by Snidsl on 2018-06-26 05:17 pm

    I sincerely wish there was an option to rate between average and very good. This hotel is historic and they have done a great job to keep it decorated as such. It is very unique experience. They give you an actual key to your door... the elevator was adorable and has a 4 passenger limit. The hotel is on the Main Street but this is a quite town, so I heard no road noise. The room was clean, there was a window air conditioner unit that worked very well. The front desk staff were very kind. It isn't a Hampton and they don't pretend it is, but walking down the street to their sister hotel the lodge for breakfast was inconvenient and not having coffee in the room was really hard for me in the morning.... they have it in the lobby, but I really like coffee prior to seeing other humans. The TV was large and WIFI worked well.

  • I'd stay here again, no question.

    We stayed at the Lodge, in a suite - very attractive and comfortable. This was our first time in Wellsboro and we made the right choice. Stayed here and had breakfast here. We had dinner at the companion hotel a few blocks down the street. Excellent dinner, good service, attractive setting. After dinner, took a walking tour of the town, then stopped back at the hotel for a glass of wine before heading back to the lodge. Would recommend both to anyone visiting Wellsboro.
