A must have experience. I am in hotels 4 out of every 7 days. I have been in fancy suites, very bad scum bag rooms, had every possible amenity, and dealt with diverse staffs. I will place the Wells Inn among the top on my list. We stayed in Room 202 and could not have asked to be any more... More

The Wells in was an awesome experience. I stayed in room 314 and was pleasantly pleased with the accommodations. The room was spacious and very clean. The staff was very kind and the management was very approachable and professional. As for the dining, too notch! I would definitely recommend this locale!

I have stayed and filmed at this amazing location. The owners and staff here are always working diligently at running and restoring this over 100 year old testament to Sistersville's history. The food there was great and the staff was very nice. The rooms were clean and still had the charm of their historical aura. This place is perfect for... More

This is a great place to stay. The rooms are comfortable with an historic twist. The staff is very friendly and eager to help. The owners work very hard to make everyone feel important and welcome. The breakfast is delicious, filling, and homemade. I also appreciate being able to order breakfast ahead of time. I try to stay here as... More

Staying here you will step back in time to a darling little inn with a lot of history! My daughter and I were recently in the town of Sistersville for a pageant. Our whole family went and enjoyed our stay! Be sure to talk to the owner, he is very approachable and interesting! The breakfast is excellent!

If you are looking for the Hilton this is not your place. However if you want to take a step back in time you will not be disappointed. How many hotels let you order your breakfast from the menu no charge. and the dining room had a grandfathers clock that is to die for. It takes you back in time... More

We stayed for two days visiting family in Moundsville. We enjoyed our room at the Wells Inn, a room that took us back to the 19th Century, with its quaint beauty. Although we could have stayed in Moundsville if we wanted the sameness of one Holiday Inn Express we could find anywhere and everywhere, we chose the Wells Inn for... More

All I can say is don't expect ANYTHING special. The owner is rude and customer service is just as bad. The food was awful. Go to New Martinsville and stay at the Amerihost Inn and eat at Quinet's. Now, that's what you call home cooked good old fashion food. The Well's Inn when I was younger was the IT place... More

Another review from you? Seriously? We remember your group. Including going into areas that are currently not open to the public. The nasty personal comments are uncalled for and I think any reasonable person would see them as more of a reflection upon you than us. Which part of we are undergoing a heavy renovation did you have a problem... More

It is very upsetting to see what "could be" in terms of a truly unique experience, and what actuallly "is." This is a wonderful old building that needs ownership with some actual vision, taste and money. The current ownership apparently has none of the above, and they also have no idea on how to run a hotel either. With some... More

aen2009, Manager at The Wells Inn, responded to this review

It is easy to make snide comments about other peoples’ businesses, isn’t it? I understand and at one point I used to do the same thing. And then we bought the hotel, fixed the damage caused when the former owner abandoned the property, and reopened it. I am sorry we did not meet your expectations and I do appreciate your... More
