We stopped in for lunch as the Inn promoted Carry Out options. This was exactly what we wanted so we could sit by the river and eat our lunch. When we arrived and walked in the front door no one was there to greet us. We realized later that the host was on the porch having a meeting. We walked... More

The Town's Inn is one of the very few establishments in "lower" Harper's Ferry. It is an old building, but very conveniently located. It was hot on the third floor when we stayed there, and the bathroom was a flight of stairs down, but it was all fine. Clean and well-kept and the kitchen was open when we needed it.

We were very excited to come to harpers ferry and thought the location of the Town's inn was ideal. The website made it look like a quaint relaxing B&B. The people there were very nice, but the room we stayed in "friendship room" was dark like a cave, dingy and smelled strongly of mildew. More hostel than B&B/Inn and we... More

We stayed in the Mountain View Room, which looks adorable in pictures, but is horrible in real life! The main bed in the room is super uncomfortable for two people because you roll to the deep canyon in the middle - I switched to the queen sleeper sofa the last night and left my poor hubby on his own. It... More

This place has such good reviews, I cannot believe it. We went there because of the reviews. The ONLY good thing is the location. Smells just like mildew. Has no place to set things down. Every inch is taken up with cheap nick knacks even the top of the air conditioner. No closet. A shower and toilet room that has... More

We selected this place to dine based on its rating, menu, and location. When we walked into the Restaurant we were treated like unwanted visitors from out of town. The hostess had a very unfriendly and annoyed attitude. There was no communication between her and our waiter. She scolded him in front of us. I was surprised at how we... More

The operator of this establishment has been very frustrating for me to deal with. She has a phone # listed on her website which I called to set up a reservation and later I had to call back and cancel the reservation. I made this call more than a week in advance which is what is required to still get... More

Experienced radical hospitality, a much needed retreat and respite from TV, technology and stress. Delighted in an all at once Spring springing in Harper's Ferry after our deep South's early display of azaleas and then followed by the very late arrival of Spring buds and blooms in Michigan so 3 Springs this year. Afternoon arrival by train from DC direct... More

we planned a siblings weekend recently in Harpers Ferry, which consisted of six of us, three brothers and three sisters. We sisters stayed in the Potomac Room and our brothers had the Shenandoah room upstairs. This worked out great for us and we also had use of the community room to hang out together. The accomodations were very comfortable and... More

We truly enjoyed our weekend at the inn & the staff was fabulous! The inn is in the heart of Lower Town & in walking distance to EVERYTHING! Our room was very clean & comfortable. Karen, Brenda, Jeff & Lamont made our stay memorable - every need taken care of, DELICIOUS meals & we were treated like family! Looking forward... More
