We go to the Renn Faire every year and have stayed previously at the Hampton Inn, across the street. If you have tons of cash, then by all means, stay at the Hampton Inn, but if you're on a budget, looking for a comfortable, decent place to stay, the Penns Woods Inn will do. I have stayed here twice and... More

We wanted one room for one night. The room smelled awful, was dirty, we doubted if the sheets were changed from the last guest, the toilet leaked, there was a mini refrigerator in the room but the door couldn't close on it due to a massive ice buildup. Yuck, never again. Hotwire should take this dump off of their site.

I have stayed there in the past so I don't know about bed bugs. I found it basic and in a very pretty location. It's not a resort or a spa. It's just a place with miss matched furniture but I found it clean and comfortable. I don't know what the others expected. It's just a mom and pop operation... More

One word DISGUSTING! To top it off, I'm now on antibiotics for 14 days because of 7 bed bugs on my arm that became hot, swollen and INFECTED!!!!! I would not wish this hotel on my worst enemy! Filthy dirty bathrooms and the floor was never cleaned nor the sheets changed and we were there for 5 nights!

When I first walked into the room, I was greeted by a musty smell. I walked back to the bathroom where there was hair all over the place from the previous guest and the bathtub was DISGUSTING. Not only was it not cleaned by the housekeeping service, it had mold growing in the corners of the bathtub where they caulked... More
