Harper's Ferry is amazing and the Town's Inn an integral part of the fabric. You need to know before you stay that this is an old building, so it's not wheelchair accessible and the floors aren't level, but so long as you accept that then the place is just fine. Where they fall down is they don't seem to know... More

This property is right in the historic district, just steps away from all of the NPS buildings, restaurants, and sights. I had my two sons (9 and 6) with me and we stayed in the Friendship room. It was a really cute room, with a queen and daybed (and clean). Most B&Bs won't allow kids, but this place does (technically... More

We went to Harper's Ferry after a day of tubing on the Shenandoah. We saw people eating out front of The Town's Inn and decided to give it a try. It was a beautiful evening so we wanted to sit outside. We sat on the back patio. It doesn't have any views and you can tell this is an historic... More

My 9 year old grandson and I traveled by train from Baltimore. Arriving at the Town's Inn was a fine way to continue the adventure. In late August the staff was thin (summer student help having left) so we had to be patient about waiting for food service. But everyone was very courteous and cheerful. The 1840s building, and especially... More

After meeting a lady on the street, we talked to her, she said she was a local and we asked her where a good place was to eat. She recommended 'The Towns Inn', so we went there. Slowest service ever. After the confusion on where to enter, we got seated in a back smelly, dirty looking patio. A man took... More

Our family of five enjoyed the best rest on our bicycle journey along the C&O canal at this lovely inn in Harper's Ferry. The staff were accommodating and friendly and catered to our every need. Highly recommend this cozy establishment to anyone needing a getaway from the hustle and bustle.

We were looking for a period experience and this fit the bill. The location is simply unbeatable. We slept in the Potomac Room which had a day bed and a double. There was not a private bath in the room but there are two full baths at the end of the hall. If you enjoy a dated atmosphere and are... More

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
