“reat place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

I recently stayed two nights at the Bicentennial Inn in Buckhannon, WV. The hotel will surprise you.
It IS an older property that seems to be under constant improvement. It is not part of a chain, and therefore is the embodiment of small business and "making a go" of living the American dream. Upon entering the lobby I was greeted by a very friendly staff, given an overview of the amenities offered, and the property and surrounding area in general.
There is an elevator in good working order, and since I don't exactly travel light, this is a huge plus for me.
My room was nice with a fridge, microwave, full size 12 cup coffee maker and new carpet. Its obvious that the hotel is a work in progress and they are doing a very nice job.
The restaurant is very reasonably priced and the food of excellent quality.
I will be travelling to Buckhannon often for business and will most decidedly stay here every time!

My husband and I visit Buckhannon regularly, and on our last visit, we stayed at the Bicentennial. We were both very impressed with the place. There is comfortable outdoor seating at the inn's front porch; at the side entry, there is additional seating. The front lobby is welcoming and the staff are friendly and helpful. I was pleased to see hot coffee offered around the clock in the lobby, which is something my husband and I always appreciate. Our room was clean, and the bed was comfortable. We had no problems with the bathroom mechanics, and the water pressure in the shower was satisfactory. The inn's restaurant served a great breakfast, and my husband and I had breakfast discounted, since we were staying at the inn. We visit Buckhannon frequently, and we will no doubt stay at the Bicentennial again.

Room Tip: Some of the first floor rooms are next to the outside sitting area, which may be noisy in the late e...

My wife and I returned to Buckhannon to visit some friends who she had got to know when at West Virginia Weslyan, and the place to stay is the Bicentennial Inn. The staff were very friendly, and the Restaurant was excellent combining local charm with good food. We could not have felt more at home - I don't think it was because of our English accents, but I don't suppose they do have many visitors from outside the Sates. If I had one criticism it would be that the sound-proofing in the room was not brilliant - we could hear every footstep in the room above - and I was surprised that the beds had a plastci sheet on below the normal sheet: I may be nearly 60, but I am not incontinent!

Was going to attend the quilt show in Summersville and needed a half way point. Found hotel on internet. Very impressed. Friendly and helpful. We had a lamp in our room that wouldn't work we had the lady from the front deck come to our room and she helped us figure out what we were doing wrong.

Took a West Virginia motorcycle trip last weekend, and found the Bicentennial Inn as centrally located, and with all the great reviews, decided to give it a shot. I was not disappointed! It is an older hotel that has apparently been well maintained, or perhaps with a recent refresh. The bathrooms are a little small compared to more modern hotels, but everything worked well and was very clean, with none of the mustiness you seem to find at the older hotels. The free wi-fi was fast enough for my purposes, faster than many of the bigger chains I've stayed at, and I got a good connection everywhere I tried it. The restaurant was first rate, had two breakfasts and two dinners there, and all were excellent. The rooms were quiet, I heard no noise (outside of somebody having trouble setting his car alarm outside!) from rooms on either side. Every one of the staff I interacted with was unfailingly polite and welcoming. I had only two complaints. First, the rooms were dark, probably from "energy saving" light bulbs being used in lamps with three way switches. The second was the curtains. They were dark red, and while they look nice, I could see through them when I turned the lights out. Blinds or room darkening curtains should be used on the first floor. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again next time I'm in the area, regardless of the reason for my visit.

My husband and I have stayed in the hotel for the last 2 years when visiting family. Very clean and quite which is a big plus when you want to relax and enjoy yourselves and sleep. The staff (receptionist Connie at the time of check in and out) is so nice and friendly and helpful, makes you feel so at home. We haven't had the pleasure of trying the 88 Restaurant mainly yet but will one day.

Pros: rooms are set up with TV, WiFi, little refrigerator, microwave, hair dryer, coffee pot for the coffee, cream and sugars provided.

Cons: it's a bit pricey for WV and the bathrooms and shower space are a bit on the small side like the set up. Other than that it was good.
