“Great Inn & Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Want a hometown type Motel/Inn with an excellent Lounge & Restaurant...........need not look any further. The staff is friendly and courteous. A+++++++ The food at the 88 Restaurant is delicious and reasonably priced. Breakfast selections on menu are bountiful. If you stay at the Inn you'll get a nice discount on your breakfast tab.

We stayed at the Bicentennial the weekend of a friends wedding at a local resort. They went out of their way to accommodate us checking in a little early to dress for the wedding. They also give a veteran or active duty discount, super reasonable price, excellent staff as well. The town is awesome. The restaurant has amazingly good food and service. If you stay the night, and present your receipt, breakfast comes with a generous discount. When I told the man at the desk( who was so friendly) that I will book my daughter a room for her birthday get away, he told me to mention its for her birthday, and they will decorate the room! This is top notch WV hospitality!

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!
