The rooms were nice, the food was great, the view of the mountains and Potomac River was excellent. The rooms were pretty much standard as any hotel, except having whirltub(can't think of the name of it now) in the bathroom. The price was a little high to afford, but needed to relax my ankle after twisting it during a hike... More

We were looking for something special, and intrigued by the non-chain appeal of this hotel. Everything was fine, but not really different from any other hotel. If anything, it was quite overpriced. It may not be clear from the website, but the hotel is composed of four buildings: 2 overlook the Potomac and 2 overlook a parking lot. Originally we... More

Dear frugalm0m, Thank you for your review. I am sorry that our prices did not coincide with your needs. Perhaps 2 rooms would have been much more suitable for 4 people. We attempt to describe our rooms and explain they are mostly designed for two, but can accomodate up to 4, with a pull out sofa. Maybe a future visit... More

The good things first. The infinity pool is wonderful. Very well done. Perfect view of the river. Nice bar/snack area at pool. Service tad slow. Hotel reservation service poor. I called, the old fashioned way, to make a reservation. The online site said breakfast for 2 was included, but was told that that it was only worth $20. Seems like... More

Started out with some trouble at the front desk. We had just come off the C&O Canal, riding our bikes and very tired and muddy. Were able to find a hose to wash off the bikes, that was nice. There were three of us and we had booked a Garden View room, only to find out it only had one... More

We stayed one night only and had paid to upgrade from a garden view room to a river view room, but upon checking in found that we had been given a complimentary upgrade to a luxury room. It was a large, lovely room with a balcony and very good view of the Potomac River. Unfortunately it was so hot that... More

We had a lovely stay at the Bavarian Inn. The staff is very friendly. The grounds are beautiful. The new infinity pool is lovely. Make sure to stay for Sunday brunch. I don't think I could try every item on the brunch if I went 10 times. The food was excellent, as well as the service. It is also very... More

First the positives - the food is great!, dining room and Rathskeller staff - great - very attentive. Room was fine - hallway has a strange odor, room is very clean. Internet basically nonexistent in the room, had to go on balcony to get signal. Pool is beautiful, but unfortunately difficult for guests to enjoy as it is opened up... More

Dear Jayce004, Once again I apologize that you were not able to get your desired lounge chair by the pool as other guests were using it. As you probably noticed the next day, and the day prior, the chairs at the pool were only half occupied. We are encouraging people to use the pool, as we feel it is a... More

We had a 2 night stay here May 12 - 14 in a Luxury Garden room. We enjoyed everything---the room was very nice, large enough, had a nice sofa so we could both sit together.

We stayed at the Bavarian Inn recently for 3 nights & enjoyed every one of them. The staff was friendly & fast at registration. I wanted to buy a bottle of wine for our room-they provided glasses for no additional charge & picked out a wine that was very reasonable & delicious.
