  • Anniversary overnight trip

    by Dale214 on 2020-02-16 09:54 am

    So looking forward to a night away for our anniversary. Room size was great, but overall hotel needs updating/cosmetic makeover. We were instructed on how to use the heat (radiators) and the heat worked great. However, the windows were very drafty, so much that the curtains moved (February 14 was a very cold night). Dinner was great, breakfast okay. Should have had breakfast at the Diner. Our bill was adjusted for the very cold room. Walls are thin, sound travels. We were in room 131.

  • Stayed here while visiting family.

    Wanted to stay here while visiting family because this hotel turned 150 years old this year. All I can say is, the rooms are clean but the age of the hotel shows. Also, the room & bathroom were very small. But all the pictures & history throughout is simply amazing.

    Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We really appreciate it! It is our intention to let the age of the hotel show, as we want our guests to be able to experience what a hotel from the 1920's was truly like. The rooms are small, something that was part of the original plan of the construction in 1869. When upgrades were made to include bathrooms in every room, many of them had to be small because of the footprint of the room they were to be a part of. Our dining room is filled with historical photographs from 1880 through 1960, and our lobby has a beautiful display of memorabilia from the early years of the Penn Wells. We hope you'll be able to make it back to Wellsboro soon and enjoy another nostalgic stay at the Historic Penn Wells Hotel!

  • Excellent historical stay at the warm and friendly Penn Wells Hotel

    by Bobkrip on 2019-12-10 04:11 am

    My wife and I got lucky getting a cancellation room for the Dickens of a Christmas event this month. We absolutely loved the accommodating feel and timeless beauty of this hotel. The complimentary breakfast and Sunday brunch were fantastic making for a value added experience of staying here. It was so awesome to be in the middle of all the activity, along with having our room as a cozy retreat from the cold and hustle and bustle outside. Hopefully we will get another chance to do this again next year. We both were over the top with our experience in Wellsboro and especially the Penn Wells Hotel.

    Hi Bob! Thanks for your comments! We're so thrilled you had the opportunity to spend time with us during Dickens of a Christmas here in Wellsboro, an event so many people look forward to every single year. The Historic Penn Wells Hotel fits so perfectly into the warmth and coziness of the historical nature of the event, and having the opportunity to be able to stroll our downtown during this time is fabulous. We're thrilled you were happy with your accommodations, and that you were able to enjoy both our all-you-can-eat hot and cold breakfast buffet Saturday morning and the fabulous Sunday Brunch! We hope you'll be one of the lucky ones to again join us next year, and hope you'll plan to join us at another time of the year!

  • Stayed during Dickens of a Christmas

    by laciemae6 on 2019-12-07 12:19 am

    Room was cozy. Bathroom pretty small. We had very little hot water in the morning for showers. Wonder if others had the same problem? Enjoyed the Wellsboro men's choir singing Christmas songs in the lobby with a nice large crowd. Hotel right on Main Street real close to food and craft vendors for the special weekend. We would go back!

    Thanks do much for your review Lacie! We're glad you had a great time while in Wellsboro for our annual Dickens of a Christmas celebration. It is a magical time, with many of Wellsboro's townsfolk dressed in Victorian era clothing, crowds of people roaming the streets, and the color and warmth of Christmas all around. We're sorry you experienced some issues with your hot water, but were happy to report all of that has been rectified. We're glad you came and want you to come back again!

  • Old hotel, but comfortable

    by joyharrison on 2019-11-09 05:20 am

    I spent one night at the Penn Wells Hotel. It is a historically significant hotel but in need of sprucing up. The staff was great and the beds very comfortable. The bathroom was the smallest one I have ever seen. I'm not sure how a hefty person could fit in. There were no closets, so could not even hang up our coats. The sound traveled through from the room next to us. There is an elevator.

    Hi Joy,

    Thanks for taking the time to write your review. The Historic Penn Wells Hotel was built in 1869 and went through a massive remodeling in 1925. That is when the bathroom floor plans were created. Some of the rooms, like the one you stayed in, are very small, and the bathroom reflects the size of the room. Other rooms, especially those with one king bed or two double beds, are significantly larger. Many of those do have closets as well as larger bathrooms. In 1925 the comforts a traveler was looking for did not include spaciousness and modernization, comforts travelers of today look for. They did hope for a clean room and comfortable bed, and amenities such as a dining room and lounge were highly desired. None of the establishments offered any sort of breakfast, a feature we have gladly added to a guest's stay, including our Sunday Brunch for those travelers joining us on a Saturday night. We're glad you chose to stay with us and hope your travels will bring you back to Wellsboro!
