Group of classmates reuniting for a few days. Bfast was excellent except dining room manager constantly keep peering in the room looking at his watch. He wanted us gone. He made us uncomfortable enough that we left. Rooms are nice but bathroom is unheated. Makes for a cold morning shower especially in winter.

Spacious room with fireplace and balcony overlooking the river. The rooms were updated and had a large jacuzzi tub. It's a reasonable walk to the Historic district where there are numerous restaurants and shops. I'm looking forward to returning sometime during the summer months to swim in the infinity pool that also looks out over the river.

We stayed for 3 nights the room was okay. We had ample space, the bed was very comfortable and the tub was relaxing. The rooms decor was in keeping with the theme of the hotel therefore that was alright. It was extremely cold and so the gas fireplace was a nice touch to the room. Our room was right next... More

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.
