This was our first visit to Buckhannon, WVA. We were there for a gathering of friends who ride the same type motorcycle. Everything about the hotel was great except for the beds. The pillows and linens were fine, but the mattresses were old, and we could feel the springs when we laid down. The rooms were clean, and there were... More

We chose this property because we try to avoid chains in favor of local business. After researching we settled on this place. It is an older property, well maintained and close to "downtown". Our room was spacious, clean and quiet. Staff were pleasant and accommodating. Several observations: the rooms aren't CPAP friendly (both my wife and I use one) since... More

I had been staying at the Hampton, but they were full. This was one of their recommendations, and it was a pleasant surprise. Two story inside rooms, on main street. Room was very nice, double sheetfed bed, staff here is very friendly. Chairs on the front porch were full of guests sitting and chatting. Great local Inn!

The staff both in the hotel and restaurant were exceptional. We enjoy having dinner there. The specials were great including Mad Mog's Sausage Hogie and the Pulled Pork Sandwichs tasted great, and with pleasant service it was very enjoyable. Reasonably priced beer rounds out the evening at The 88. Rooms are very clean and recently remodeled.

The service was very slow due to apparent understaffing, the room seemed straightend, however not-so-clean, but the bed was fairly comfortable, towels, toiletries were provided. At check in, there was only one person behind the desk, seemed frazzled, but keep in mind this was a very busy weekend for this very small town~~graduations, the prom and Strawberry Festival all going...

When we arrived we had a wait in the lobby. There was only one person behind the desk and it took her awhile to help the customer in front of us. We were checked in and given our room key. When we got to our room,the room had not been cleaned. The beds were unmade, towels on the bathroom floor.... More

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. If you want a big... More

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.
