Very friendly and professional front desk at check in.

Pleasing accommodations. Lots of history, yet up-to-date.

Love older hotels, quiet, good restaurants, parking, nice rooms.

Friendly staff, nice property with lots of history. Clean and neatly done... older, certainly... they could update their air conditioners, otherwise a very well appointed hotel.

VERY QUAINT, BRUNCH WAS FIRST CLASS, YOU ARE RIGHT IN THE CENTER OF TOWN AND CLOSE TO ALL ACTIVITIES.

It’s a historic hotel, it’s right on Main Street and you can simply walk to the movie theater, shops and nice restaurants and bars. It’s old but well kept. The pool is not at this facility but you do have access to a pool located at their partner hotel a couple of blocks from this property.

It is an old hotel, but charming. The restaurant was closed on Monday and Tuesday, but there are near-by restaurants.

Friendly people! Fun Bar! Great Food & Hospitality!

Loved the idea of staying at a historical hotel. Was disappointed that there was nothing special added to make this hotel more comfortable and cozy. The pictures of the lobby looked bright and comfortable. In real life it was dark and dreary. The rooms could have some extra touches to make them more comfortable. There is nothing special. The hotel is just old! Very disappointed that we had to walk several blocks to their other hotel for breakfast. The breakfast was just another boring hotel breakfast. The “fake” eggs were just awful! You have to stay Saturday night to get the delicious breakfast others gave good reviews of. The only thing we did like about the hotel was that we could walk next door to the theater. That’s was nice.

We had a wonderful stay here! If you love to stay in a place oozing of history, this is your place! The free breakfast was amazing & the hotel staff were very friendly!

Enjoyed our stay there. Liked the history of the hotel and the location is great, within walking distance of the shops and eateries .

A different kind of hotel. This hotel takes you back in time....in a good way. Hotel still uses key (no electronic cards). Rooms are small but comfortable. Breakfast was excellent. Staff very pleasant and accommodating. . Aroma of fireplace in lobby very pleasant. Wellsboro is a neat place to visit and Penn Wells Historic Hotel is a great place to stay while there.

We felt like we were stepping back in time. The staff was friendly and the food at the onsite restaurant was delicious. Would recommend to anyone who isn't looking a modern hotel, but more of a charming, historical ambience.

Thanks for taking the time to write a few words. We really appreciate your insight! The Penn Wells Hotel was built in 1869 and went through a massive remodeling in 1925, decorated with imported Philippine mahogany, marble baseboards, ceramic tile floor, and traditional period high ceilings. It's centrally located in the middle of Wellsboro, a short walk to all the town has to offer, and is only 10 miles from the PA Grand Canyon. We're glad you stayed with us and hope you can come back before too long!
