We had been traveling across the state and were still an hour and a half from our destination when it got dark and very snowy. Decided to stop for the night. What a pleasant surprise! If you are used to the standard new hotels with your fitness center, swimming pool and no restaurant or bar, then this might not be...

My wife and stayed here for a long weekend when we needed to get away from the stress of our jobs and the routine of everyday life. I picked the Penn Wells Hotel by chance, mainly because it was close to the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania. What a lucky pick! From the friendly greeting when we arrived to the "Come...

We had a truly wonderful time staying at the Penn Wells Hotel. The staff could not have been more friendly, accommodating and helpful. Our room was VERY clean (very important) and comfortable. We ate in the dining room twice and the food and service were great. I would definitely recommend the hotel and stay there again!

Enjoyed an extended weekend at the Lodge recently. Staff were very home town welcoming and accommodating. Booked a King suite; kitchen facilities with large fridge came in handy. 2 TVs were nice to have. Daily breakfast was simplistic but acceptable, nothing elaborate. Woman who attended to the breakfast was very friendly, treated you like she knew you for years. Mattresses...

We loved our stay!! Beautiful town, wonderful, friendly staff and clean, comfortable hotel. We would highly recommend this hotel. Having a restaurant and bar inside was a plus. The food was very good, close to everything in town and a short drive to the canyon.

The hotel was very clean and comfortable with a friendly and accommodating staff. The women at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. The lobby is very inviting and warm although I found the room that we were staying in to be very plain but comfortable and clean. It could have used better lighting and a table to put...

The Hotel is a piece of history and looks the part, so if you expect perfection this is not the Hotel for you as you will see cracked plaster, paint chips, etc. The Hotel is very clean though and a beautiful example of late 19th century architecture. The staff however are what sets this Hotel apart from all others.
