“On the Waterfront”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

I stayed at the Waterfront for a convention. The front desk clerks were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. It would've been nice to have a refrigerator in the room and one morning the hot water was limited in the shower but overall it was a very nice place.

Very efficient and welcoming staff at the desk. The rooms are well appointed, comfortable and spacious. Generous buffet breakfast for $12.00 with great service. Excellent restaurant on site: Regatta with above average meal and reasonable price.

Stayed there 2nd week of November. Beautiful lobby, room was spacious and comfortable with a lovely view of the river. Many local pubs and restaurants were within easy walking distance and all were a good value! There was even a well stocked grocery store within a mile. The hotel had a well equipped gym, which I used a few times, and an indoor pool, which I did not get to use. I would definitely recommend this hotel for its convenience and cleanliness!

Room Tip: Either side of the hotel gives either a view of the city or the river.

Ok, the Waterfront is a nice hotel but it's a total rip off. My boyfriend, all his friends, and I stayed there last weekend for the Texas football game. We reserved two rooms for two nights last year when the football schedule was announced. We were quoted a rate and were happy with it. Well, when we showed up to check-in the rate had DOUBLED! Not cool. For all that money you'd think we'd get some complimentary breakfast or at least there'd be a microfrige in the room...nada! Also, they promised a complimentary shuttle to take us downtown to the bars and restaurants (since it's a ways away from all of that) and we waited and waited...and waited...and finally we just hitched a ride with strangers. However, there was free parking, I'll give them that. All in all, you can definitely find a cheaper hotel that's just as nice with much more amenities in Morgantown. Stay somewhere else!

Dear Kate S,

Let me apologize for the inconvenience you experienced with our complimentary shuttle. If the shuttle was running behind, an estimated wait time should have been communicated to you. Unfortunately, traffic in Morgantown increases exponentially on WVU football weekends which may cause delays.

We value all guest reviews, both positive and negative, and we use them as a tool to provide the best guest experience possible. We hope you will allow us a second opportunity to provide the services to which our guests are accustomed.

Sincerely,
Ryan Alexander – Marketing Specialist

My wife and I stayed at the Waterfront Hotel on October 19th after watching the Texas Tech - West Virginia football game and were treated to an extremely classy and terrific stay! The staff was excellent in helping us decide what restaurants to eat at near the hotel and also welcomed us warmly as out of town visiting guests. One of the things that caught our attention was the display of the WVU and Texas Tech flags in the lobby and the Texas Tech flags outside on the circular driveway which was really classy! We agree that this really welcomes any visiting football fans to Morgantown! Outside of the hotel, there is a jogging/bike path that runs along the river which takes you by several restaurants - we really enjoyed the local Mountain Top Brewery while waiting for a seat at the Italian place next door. Finally, we would heartily recommend the buffet breakfast for $10 at this hotel. In summary, I would strongly urge anyone coming to Morgantown to stay at this hotel - the atmosphere, hospitality, location, and friendliness just can't be beat! Thank you for a terrific weekend in Morgantown!

Room Tip: Views of the river are beautiful!

Great place for a meeting and football weekend. Service was excellent, facilities are first class. Highly recommend! Breakfast Buffet very reasonable and excellent. If you get a chance go to Table 9 for dinner just a short walk from Waterfront Place.

We don't usually book hotel packages, but we did for an overnight stay here. The "Do Not Disturb" package -- dinner, including a bottle of wine and breakfast - was perfect for our needs, since we didn't know the area and were arriving late in the afternoon. Our King bed riverview room was very spacious and comfortable, with a terrific view upriver with fall foliage. Staff was nice, and dinner was good. Breakfast was very good. Only wish I'd known there was free coffee in the bar in the morning Given their proximity to the several extensive bike paths I'm surprised they haven't created a "Biker's Package with a bike rental." The hotel seems closely affiliated with West Virginia U (What in Morgantown isn't?) and this was an away football weekend. I'm sure it sells out on big sports weekends. We'd come again when we return for our biking in the Spring, but perhaps not the whole package since we discovered several interesting restaurants w/in a block of the hotel right along the bike path. Minor minor nits re: housekeeping. A used candy wrapper was sitting on a magazine when we arrived, and the bathroom toilet paper holder and seat needed repair. But otherwise perfect.

Room Tip: River view is a bonus, and in my mind worth the extra $$. Too far above 6th Floor and you won't...
