Looked forward to the stay. The room was nice enough but smelled very musty. Late arrival no offer to assist with our luggage but almost a desperate plea to eat at their restaurant. We stayed in the luxury suite and had dinner out with friends. Next day their was a snow storm with schools cancelled - we asked for options... More

Dear Lynn_Lyon, I'm so sorry you were so unhappy. I do believe that the snow and ice storm you mention was a major culprit in your disappointment. We were running a full hotel, with a skeleton crew due to the storm. We care deeply about the safety of our employees (and guests), and did not want anyone to travel in... More

From the moment we entered the Bavarian Inn in Shepherdstown, WV we were treated kindly. The room was lovely with a fireplace, the bathroom upgrades were fabulous, the view over the river & bridge were spectacular. The dinner courses were all top of the line delicious & perfectly paired with dark beer for my husband & I chose wine pairings.... More

We stayed in a river view luxury room. It was wonderful with fireplace, two person whirlpool, wine and apples and seating on the balcony overlooking the river. Our stay would have been perfect had the trains not come through town at 3am!!

My husband and I stayed at the Bavarian Inn on February 7th after a family get together- we ate at the hotel restaurant which was very nice. We got to our room quite late at night - after 10pm - got ready for bed - the towels smelled like mildew, as if someone had left them in the washer for... More

We spent Valentine's Day weekend in the Garden View room. One of the ceiling tiles in the bathroom had been moved, and there were pieces of tile dust all over the counter. The room itself felt dark, and the lack of a small refrigerator to store drinks was disappointing. Also, there were very few outlets to plug even just one... More

My husband and I spent our anniversary here in February. We were upgraded from a Garden view luxury to a Riverview Luxury. The Riverview Room was very modern, the Jacuzzi tub was huge and updated, everything about that room was what you would expect from a luxury room just beautiful! The Garden view room was not just a difference in... More

This past weekend was our third trip to the Bavarian Inn (and our first visit as a married couple!) in celebration of Valentine's Day!

The hotel is getting a little worn and needs updating. The Dining room is advertised as requiring Jacket after 5 PM, but that is not enforced at all. Why don't people make anything special anymore? There is a less dressy restaurant with the same menu as the dining room, so it was very disappointing to dine in the dining room... More

After a gap of many years, we returned for Valentine's Day--fortunately, the night before. We had heard that the Inn had gone down hill, but NOT SO! We stayed in the Augsburg chalet overlooking the Potomac--great view, well appointed with large Jacuzzi, fireplace and a bottle of wine. Dinner was a wonderful experience. Having spent half of my military career... More

Just spent a night in this charming place and would whole-heartedly recommend it to anyone. Went up specifically on the recommendation of a couple we meet from Fredrick who really liked the restaurant and we were not disappointed. The location on the hill overlooking the river is fabulous. In our case it was winter and the river was frozen, but... More
