We've been visiting this inn since the 1970's, and it never disappoints. The staff is helpful and friendly, going out of their way to go beyond expectations. This time, Susie helped me take care of my sick husband (who had a bad cold and stayed in the room). She arranged for a broth-based soup, which was not on their menu,... More

My family and I spent one night at the Bavarian Inn in Shepherdstown, WV. We were pleased with the room, which was clean and comfortable. It was also very quiet. We had breakfast at the hotel. The dining room was attractive and the food was good. We would stay there again.

I had dinner at the Bavarian Inn for the first time last Friday, and it was wonderful. The atmosphere was cozy, especially by the fire place, the Salmon was cooked to perfection, and our waitress, Holly, took excellent care of us. The wine she recommended was great, and her service was outstanding. We couldn't resist getting dessert even though my... More

We had lunch there - it was ok for a one time go - looks a bit dated and I'm sure in it's day it was "the place to go" . But the town of Shepherdstown has such cute places to eat - we'll go other places to try.

My wife and just wanted a quiet getaway. We didn't really to enjoy absolutely everything about our trip! From the comfort of the rooms to the quaint and beautiful surroundings, The Bavarian Inn was exactly what we needed. Incidentally, every meal we had, whether in the hotel or in Shepherdstown, was absolutely great.

Overall, we had a very good experience with The Bavarian Inn, until after the stay. The infinity pool was awesome. Staff and guests were friendly. The owner and his family even mingled and spent time with the guests at the pool. The only issue I have, is that when I booked and stayed at the Inn for one night on... More

Hi Neil, Thank you for your comments. I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, the pool and meeting our family. I am sorry for the confusion with the discount coupons, and wish I had known about this prior to now (3 months later). The coupons should have been given to you at registration, and are basically treated like... More

The Bavarian Inn advertises itself as having European elegance, but our experience was quite the opposite. We had one of the upscale rooms, but found it in the basement of one of the buildings, complete with cinderblock walls and dirty floors. When we advised the hotel of the condition of the hallway, we expected the problem to be addressed, but... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your comments. I am sorry that the hallway leading to your room was not to your liking. I will work with housekeeping & maintenance to keep a more intense eye on the hallways, especially during snowy times. I'm glad that at least you enjoyed the restaurant. We would love to have you back with... More

This place is doing everything right. In all phases, they are providing a thoughtful experience. Check in was organized and the woman smiled and truly welcomed us here. We moved on to the room, a larger one in the chalet house with a river view. Super nice room...very clean, nice gas fireplace, comfy bed and a great TV selection. Quiet... More

Upon arrival we were told that were would have to wait a half hour to seat customers that had reserbations for the Sunday brunch (we were also checking in to stay). There was no-one there waiting and plenty of table availible. So to the devonshire in town we went (highly recommend). Then the toilet in the riverside chalet was broken.... More

Dear MeandMacey, I am so sorry that we were not the place for you. Our brunch last Sunday was completely sold out with reservations, hence the wait. We do have two areas for dining, formal & casual. We simply wanted to make you and our other guests feel comfortable, as many had chosen to dress appropriately for dinner in the... More

I have been dining at the Bavarian Inn for many years. Over time, faces change and of course so does the wait staff. Be that as it may, for a long time this place was one of only a few places that served meals to the standards you find in major cities. For this reason, I have been a long... More

Dear Valued Guest, I am so sorry that we were unable to offer Crystal as your server. As one who has extensive background in the hospitality industry, you must also understand the daily challenge to clearly put the guests needs first, yet also balance a fairly managed and choreographed service flow, so that one particular server does not get slammed...
