It was really cool to stay in this Inn because its the only inn right downtown Harpers Ferry, so you really feel like your staying in a little bit of history. The rooms are very clean and the bathrooms were great, but shared in this part of the Inn. It was easy to hear other people walking around inside, but it is a very old building so its understandable. Inn Keeper - Karen - was very nice. Overall, great experience and great price.
