We stayed for a one-nighter for a funeral. The staff was wonderful and the river view was gorgeous. A few issues - the advertised free w-fi service was almost nonexistent. I had service for about 15 minutes. If you're going to advertise it, you ought to provide it. Much more economical hotels have done much better. Also, seems like a... More

We stay at the Inn every year as we attend the Contemporary American Theater Festival. We dine at the Inn at least one night (the menu has improved in recent years and this year was exceptional), hike the C&O Canal trail each morning, tour the wonderful shops downtown and dine at the great restaurants before and after theater performances.

We just got back from a two night stay. We had a lovely anniversary celebration! We were in the center, lower level room in the Chaimsee (sp) building. I have to say, when walking in, I thought we would be disappointed. The hallway was “bunker like” but the room was gorgeous and the river view was lovely. But the room... More

My husband and I have visited this hotel many times. We enjoy the river view luxury suite, with whirlpool tub and private balcony overlooking the scenic Potomac. We venture into town and have a snack at the bakery and take in the scenes. We ate dinner downstairs in a more casual setting and really enjoyed our visit.

My husband and I made a reservation at the Bavarian Inn to celebrate our anniversary. We decided to go there on the recommendation of his parents, who had stayed there numerous times over the years. We were in room 36, in the Chaimsee building. The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable. The air conditioning was pretty noisy, though.... More

My husband and I stayed here one night to celebrate his birthday. I had previously stayed here twice for girls weekend celebrations. The staff is remarkable and you cannot get better and friendlier service! We had a Potomac view room, which was very large, with a sitting area with the most amazingly comfortable bed!! I had requested the chocolate covered... More

Whenever my husband and I want to escape the stresses of life we head to the Bavarian Inn. The view of the peaceful Potomac River, the clean and tastefully decorated rooms, the friendly staff and the delicious food all add up to a wonderful escape. A few days at the Bavarian Inn renews our spirits !

We stayed 2 nights at the Bavarian Inn because of a friend's positive previous experience. We were not disappointed. I long ago ceased expecting perfection but the Bavarian Inn came close to the ideal . It has a beautiful view of the Potomac River and has easy access to the C & O towpath trail which was the reason for... More

The restaurant is the best thing about the BI. The German sausages are outstanding, most all the food is great. Rooms are starting to show their age. About the 5th time I've stayed, so I guess I like it, and the area. The gas fireplace is a nice touch. Real close to Charles Town, we bet on the Kentucy Derby... More
