  • Penn Wells Hotel

    by Sightseer05924826419 on 2019-06-14 02:54 pm

    The hotel was clean and staff were courteous. Rooms were quite small with no closet to hang clothes, and other than one hook in the bathroom for a wet towel, no hooks to hang clothes. The hotel could use a makeover, looking tired. The Sunday brunch had limited selections. Our queen size bed felt more like a double. The room was overpriced for the accommodations.

    We're sorry your were disappointed with your accommodations. If you had come to the front desk to let us know your concerns, we would have done everything we could have to make your stay more comfortable, including giving you a different, larger room, and one that satisfied your expectations. Our goal is for all of our guests to be happy and to leave feeling good about their stay. Our front desk is open and available all day and all night and more than willing to help. We hope you'll return and give us the chance to properly take care of you.

  • Great old hotel

    by rizzor on 2019-06-11 02:41 am

    If your looking for resort type pamper treating spa this isn't your hotel.

    If historical type settings are what your look for this is your place. This 4-passenger max elevator, squeaky hallway floors and comfortable beds was awesome. Hotel brings you back to the past. We had a great time staying here. The rooms were very nice and clean. Hotel is right in town near a movie theater.

    Restaurant is nice they have old pictures on the walls and a paper that explains what they are. Food was good I wasn't expecting it to be out of bounds as Guy would say.

    Would go back again. Side note if your looking for more modern accommodation they have a lodge down the street which looks nice. You can use there spa or pool.

    Thank you for your great description of the Historic Penn Wells Hotel! It is a "step back to the past," including the small elevator and squeaky, somewhat uneven floors. The beds are comfortable, our housekeeping team works many hours to keep the hotel clean, and it is in the center of town right next to the art-deco Arcadia Theatre, featuring first-run current movies. The Mary Wells Dining Room and onsite lounge serve a great selection of foods to choose from, and the photographs from 1880 through 1960 give a great description of Wellsboro's history. The indoor pool, Jacuzzi, saunas and fitness center, located in our modern facility, the Penn Wells Lodge, are just a short two-minute walk away. We're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you can come back soon!

  • Awesome

    by cph174 on 2019-06-10 09:20 am

    The history is amazing. This hotel is beautiful, the architecture and decor are awesome. I stayed here for a work trip and already plan to be a regular. I like how they have kept the history alive.

    Please note: if your expecting modern day this is not for you!

    It appears you really enjoyed your stay, and that using the Historic Penn Wells Hotel as your home base for your work trip really fit your needs! We're glad you had the time to be able to enjoy what the building has to offer, including the imported Philippine Mahogany woodwork throughout the hotel, the tile-crafted floors in the lobby, and the high ceilings so prominent in early American architecture. The whole staff tries very hard to present an atmosphere of yesteryear, hoping, as you say, to keep "the history alive!" We're glad you'll be returning to us and will always be ready for your return trip!

    Outstanding Facility, Professional & Top Notch Staff, Great Food, Awesome Bar, Generations of History & Character not to mention a location nestled in a beautiful little town that feels like a peaceful suburb of Heaven. Highly recommended.

    Hi Churchill!

    We're so glad you could come experience what we try so hard to make the Historic Penn Wells Hotel experience all about! We love our hotel and work very hard to keep the history alive and as realistic as possible. In 1926 the hotel was described in the New York Times as "a gem of the Roosevelt Highway." That ambiance can still be felt today, and so many travelers that visit say they can sit back in our lobby, close their eyes, and feel as if they have stepped back into a long-lost era. The aura of the grand hotel in the small northeastern town of yesteryear and what that hotel did for its community's growth is what we strive to maintain. It was once said in a local newspaper called the Wellsboro Agitator that "without the Penn Wells Wellsboro would not be, and without Wellsboro the Penn Wells would not be." The two truly do go hand-in-hand. We definitely appreciate you and your choice of the Historic Penn Wells Hotel as your home base for your motorcycle club's tour of our area and look forward to your return trip!

  • Highly disappointed!

    by Mobile35898800695 on 2019-05-31 06:07 pm

    HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED! WAY overpriced, small rooms with no amenities, scary bathroom(didn't even want to shower) musty smell throughout hotel, on-line pictures and lobby are VERY deceiving, dissappointing breakfast so ended up going to Dunkin Donuts or McDonald's all 3 mornings. Nice town, horrible hotel... don't care how old it is! Drop some money INTO IT instead of sucking it OUT of US.
