Had a great stay. Buckhannon is a small town and hotels are limited but we found a diamond in the rough. Tried Priceline with no luck so I looked at reviews then called the Bicentennial and from the first moment I knew this was going to be a family friendly place. Everyone was so friendly.

These beds are the most uncomfortable we have ever slept on! We were not able to sleep much at all, and woke up very sore.... and thats on 29 yr old bodies. The outside is very old, but they have done alot to make the inside look a little newer. The internet is terrible, it cuts out constantly. It is... More

As a business traveler, I tend not to be too picky about my hotels. I expect a clean room and reliable internet access that allows me to do my work. The Bicentennial Inn provided neither. When I arrived in the room, I went to use the restroom and it was filthy. There was a seal on the toilet claiming it... More

Stayed here on a college visit. Rooms were clean (just old) which is the most important thing to us. Free wifi, microwave and fridge. Friendly front desk. All chain motels were taken, but this was not a bad option. The town around it is so quaint and charming...cute shops and restaurants. Very nice town.

I recently stayed here to help a family member find housing to relocate to Buckhannon. The hotel was very comfortable and quiet. There is an outdoor seating area also. It is within walking distance to downtown and the college. We enjoyed the restaurant and had outstanding service. We plan to stay here again.

Stayed at this place while on a motorcycle trip and would stay again no question. The place is a independent hotel with friendly staff, clean rooms and a great restaurant. Its hard to find a hotel with a restaurant these days. The food was very good. Sat at the bar to eat or they have nice tables too. Dinner and... More

Room was clean but poor service. Called to ask questions before booked and were told light continental breakfast was available which was not the case. Only expensive restaurant was available at hotel. Also I received a 5 am wake up call that was not cancelled from previous occupant. I could not fall back to sleep and had difficult time on... More

This was my first trip to the bicentennial inn--my son is going to WV Wesleyan, so the location was super convenient. It is about a 5 minute walk to the college and a 5-10 minute walk from anything you want to see in downtown Buckhannon. The accommodations were similar to what you would find at a relative's converted basement to... More

From the owner to the housekeeper, the bartender to the wait staff of the "88" and everything in between, my recent stay was enjoyable. Even with my limitations and special needs, the whole staff were always there for me, like I was the only person they were taking care of. Even in the midst of the Strawberry Fest and with... More

They were well prepared for our drum corp of 40 plus people. Rooms were clean and neat. Restaurant service was a little slow but management jumped in to help. We loved their fire pit. We are already booked for May 2015 and look forward to their friendly hospitality once more.
