I recently visited the area and stay at Bavarian Inn while on business the quality of the rooms and service exceeded the high standards I had come to expect. Dinner was very good and the service was good. The prices are a little high but the quality was there.

Stayed: February 2013, traveled on business

We visited Shepherdstown after touring Antietam and were delighted to find the Bavarian Inn! We loved the setting and the food and drink were awesome, particularly the German dishes and beer. The crepes in the morning were delicious and indulgent and everyone we met was so friendly we made wonderful memories.

We have been going to the Bavarian Inn yearly for the last 15 years and it is usually a very pleasant experience. The food has always been excellent; they really have wonderful German food. My past experience has been that the entrees that aren't German are not nearly as good as the German entrees. (I got crab cakes one year and they were OK, but as I said, the German food was wonderful and I wasn't even sure I would like the German food!). We stayed Feb. 22-23 in one of the garden rooms, our friends stayed in the Chalet overlooking the Potomac River. All the rooms seemed updated and clean. Our room was also very quiet. The only complaint we had was the temperature in the room seemed to fluctuate. I would wake up and be extremely warm. My husband said he woke up a couple of times and was either too warm or was cold. We had breakfast there in the morning, which we do every year. It is always very good. My only complaint was I tried the Belgian waffles and they were very good, the portion was just very small -- I'm glad I wasn't too hungry.

It is a nice place to get away, where you can eat and drink and not have to worry about driving anywhere.

Thank you for your patronage to our Inn over the past 15 years. We are so happy it has become a place of enjoyment for you. Thank you also for letting me know of the temperature issues in the room, so we can fix that right away. I will also talk to the chef to make his waffle bigger. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!

We went there for a Valentine special. Last weekend. We had a beautiful room facing the inn. Get a second floor or above or you will be on level with the parking lot. Ours was called a garden luxury. Dinner was for two and we got a $50credit and another$15 off breakfast. The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. I don't know what the others complained about here since our stay could not have been better. Will be back. They also have specials like this on other days check out their web site

Great Washington, D.C. Get away. Great food. Awesome views. Friendly staff. Nestled in sherperdstown West Virginia my fiancé and I found a wonderful retreat we hope to visit many times in the future. The gnocchi and the jäger schnitzel in particular were fab for dinner last night.

We have stayed at the Bavarian Inn on two occasions in the last year and enjoyed our stay both times. The hotel is ideally located in Shepherdstown close to Harper’s Ferry, Antietam Battlefield, Charlestown Races and numerous outdoor adventures.

At the time of booking, they only had a standard room available but upon my request called us as soon as the Royal Suite became available. Our suite was beautifully appointed. The room has a king size 4 poster bed, a double sided gas fireplace, a Jacuzzi big enough for 2 large adults, heated bath towel warmer, separate shower, double sink, a bidet, luxurious comforter and sheets, TV, bottle of champagne and two bottles of water in the refrigerator, bowel of fruit, glasses, hairdryer, coffee maker, radio, clocks, beautiful picture window overlooking the Potomac River, bath Robes, private parking space and a private entrance leading to the room upstairs. The pool is small and not heated but it was still a treat. It has a nice sundeck and separate deck overlooking the river. We took advantage of the short 10 min walk into town where we found great restaurants for lunch.

We ordered room service one evening and ate in the dining room the next evening. Both nights the food was excellent and the portions were quite generous. Our meal was fabulous and everyone from the desk clerk on made our stay a memorable one. The entire staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and special. The only thing that would make this place better was if they had a spa on-site.

After seeing a few somewhat negative reviews, I was a little skeptical about our stay. What a pleasant surprise that everything was perfect. We were greated at the front desk by Brenda who went out of her way, even though we were early for check-in, to take my phone number and call me when our room was ready. Our room was perfect....there wasn't anything we would change. We spent the afternoon roaming town, coming back to relax before dinner. Lunch, dinner, and breakfast were served by an attentive wait staff with great attention to detail. And the food....so much to choose. Every meal we ate was of high quality and nicely presented. We can't wait to return in the spring.

Dear Elsie D,
Thank you for your kind remarks. While we take all our guests comments very seriously, internet reviews can be a little unfair at times. Thus, we ask readers to come see for yourselves, and hopefully they will have as great of an experience as you did. I will happily pass on your comments to our hard working staff, and we also look forward to your return in the Spring. If I may ever be of assistance with future stays, please don't hesitate to contact us at any point!
