“Did the job while visiting.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2010

This motel came highly recommended by a relative in the area we were visiting for a few days, so we stayed here. Booking the room was easy enough, and right away, I can say that every staff person -beginning from that first contact- was nothing but friendly and straightforward.

We were able to check in early, especially so because we'd called ahead to see if it was possible. Our room was one of several that were immediately in front of the pool, had a nice comfy chair sitting outside of it, was very clean inside, had two queen beds, and a jacuzzi bathtub (note: this is not a soaking tub or adequate for two people, so get those ideas out of your head! heheheheh). Only blocks away (a short walk) was the downtown area, so it was perfectly centralized and easy to find (the huge sign on Main Street didn't hurt either). They offered coffee, tea, and oatmeal from 7a-9a or so in the tiny lobby area, and were very gracious about it. The room itself was quite comfortable and spacious, even though we had a large stroller and other baby accoutrements, plus our own stuff. The wireless internet access worked flawlessly and quickly, so no trouble there. There was a fridge with small freezer inside which worked perfectly and served us well, and the microwave wasn't used but we're confident it worked fine. Most of all, the bed was comfortable. Sidenote: because we forgot our Pack-n-Play at home, we didn't feel it was necessary to rent one from them. Instead, we made a "mattress" out of the two beds' top covers and wrapped it with a top sheet; this was placed on the floor, upon which our baby went to sleep. She doesn't roll yet, so it was fine; this also speaks volumes (no pun intended) about the amount of space in the room... wonderful!

We only had one glitch: we filled up the jacuzzi tub with cool water with which to bathe the baby, and I got on a swimsuit to get in with the baby. I accidentally hit the "On" button, and the jacuzzi tub spat out these black pieces of something upon first use. I thought perhaps it came off of my swimsuit, so we drained the tub, started over, and I put on another swimsuit; same thing. I called the front desk; it took many rings, but a nice lady picked up, fielded the problem, and sent someone over IMMEDIATELY. This wasn't an emergency, so we were surprised since it was 8:15p! It turns out it was Bob, one of the co-owners, who gave it a look. We discussed the issue, and I believe he may have been happy because we weren't confrontational or demanding at all; in fact, I was shocked when he instructed us to tell the clerk at check-out to have a reduction made since the jacuzzi required a flushing out and was hence unusable for the time being (no big deal for us). Upon check-out, we noticed that this was already done for the two nights: they had charged us fully for the room, but refunded the difference between a regular two-queen room versus the same + jacuzzi! It wasn't much, but the acknowledgement, quick response, initiative to do that, and gracious manner was more than we'd expected. That alone will make the difference when we visit the area again, likely to be next year.

Two other small concerns, which are completely out of management's hands and are a matter of personal preference:
1) The walls really do speak. In fact, hearing our neighbors' activities, and the thumping around of young children above us until 11p each night made for a tough time keeping the baby asleep. People really need to be more considerate in general! However, this also says that the sound insulation is poor due to whatever materials were selected for building the walls.
2) The pool area gets noisy, and if combined with the "thinsulation" issue, makes for again a tough time for a sleepyhead. I'd recommend (and will certainly do this next time) choosing a room further away from the pool area in the other block of rooms just yards away.

What more can I say other than FABULOUS! We stayed in room 134 over Easter weekend 2010. This motel is FABULOUS. It is clean, quiet and safe. The motel staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, fresh and clean. They have chairs outside each room to sit and relax or smoke. The grounds are maintained very well. This motel is right in town but it was so quiet that we slept like babies. Everything you need is within walking distance of the Motel. We were visiting the area for a tour up Route 6 on our motorcycle. This hotel is motorcycle friendly and it is safe to park your bike over night. We definately will stay here again.

The Sherwood is THE BEST place to stay when in the Wellsboro area. We were the first ones to stay in the newly remodeled room we had. FANTASTIC. Everthing is very neat, clean, and EXTREMELY well kept. Rates are very reasonable. (We had a winter rate). Staff is very efficient and friendly and helpful. We have not been here for eight years (my brother moved to Florida and we vacation down there) but previously we visited Wellsboro at least once a year and always stayed at Sherwood Motel. It keeps getting better and better, and it is THE only place we will stay when we visit Wellsboro.

Very nice Motel, the rooms are small and clean. Location is very good... right on main street and 2 blocks from all the restaurants.

Also it's a 15 minutes drive to the Grand Canyon.

I was there for one night.

I read review after review concerning how clean this hotel is, and it is! I will also add that it did smell of smoke. You could smell the cover-up scent that they use.
Why these places don't remove all the smoking butt cans outside of the motel is beyond me. If they really wanted to stop the smoking they could "fine" those that smoke in a room or at least post that they would be billed an additional $100 if there are any signs of smoking or smoke smell when the customer leaves.
I'm just sick and tired of going into a room and having our clothes etc smelling like these pigs.
Great motel otherwise and thanks for letting me vent.
Ps....don't take the bottom floor.......you hear everyone entering/leaving their room and foot steps.
You'll love Wellsboro!

We decided to stay at the Sherwood Motel based upon reviews on Trip Advisor. We were quite pleased. The Sherwood Motel is newly remodeled, very clean, located right in the quaint town of Wellsboro so we walked to dine and shop, and The Sherwood Motel is very respectful to smokers (non smoking but there is a chair and butt recepticals outside your door). Debbie, our cleaning staff, was so nice and responsive. The motel does not have a coffee maker in each room, but they provide free coffee in the mornings along with cookies. There is a Dunkin Donuts across the street. The price, cleanliness, personable staff, location and value makes this the place to stay!

My husband and I were in Wellsboro for a long weekend to ride motorcycle in this beautiful area. We had booked at another place in town that was a big disappointment.
The next morning, we were walking and happened to go past the Sherwood motel. My husband inquired about a room and lucky for us, there was a room available for the next two days. The motel owner and the desk clerks were very friendly and helpful.

We had a large room with a small refrigerator and microwave. Everything was spotlessly clean, freshly painted, new carpeting, and no odors of any kind. After a long day of riding motorcycle, the Sherwood was our comfortable little oasis, with a crystal clear, refreshing swimming pool. We were very pleased.

Parking our SUV and trailer was no problem in the ample parking lot. The motel is off the road far enough that we did not hear the traffic from the busy road going through Wellsboro, which is right on the popular Route 6. This motel is conveniently located in town and right down the street from the famous Wellsboro Diner.

We are planning on going back to Wellsboro and have already booked our stay for the autumn season!
