I knew things were not looking good when we pulled up and there were dead flowers in the window planters outside. Not a good first impression. The lobby area was cluttered and cruddy looking. The elevator rug was filthy and the walls were dirty. We had a room on the 2nd floor at the other end of the hall from...

You certainly did not see us at our best, and for that I apologize. You will note that we have had several positive reviews in the past few months- which I hope shows that we have been making strides,overall. Turns out my hot water issue was simply a breaker and we had it fixed soon after you left. The last...

A must have experience. I am in hotels 4 out of every 7 days. I have been in fancy suites, very bad scum bag rooms, had every possible amenity, and dealt with diverse staffs. I will place the Wells Inn among the top on my list. We stayed in Room 202 and could not have asked to be any more...

I have stayed and filmed at this amazing location. The owners and staff here are always working diligently at running and restoring this over 100 year old testament to Sistersville's history. The food there was great and the staff was very nice. The rooms were clean and still had the charm of their historical aura. This place is perfect for...

This is a great place to stay. The rooms are comfortable with an historic twist. The staff is very friendly and eager to help. The owners work very hard to make everyone feel important and welcome. The breakfast is delicious, filling, and homemade. I also appreciate being able to order breakfast ahead of time. I try to stay here as...

Staying here you will step back in time to a darling little inn with a lot of history! My daughter and I were recently in the town of Sistersville for a pageant. Our whole family went and enjoyed our stay! Be sure to talk to the owner, he is very approachable and interesting! The breakfast is excellent!

If you are looking for the Hilton this is not your place. However if you want to take a step back in time you will not be disappointed. How many hotels let you order your breakfast from the menu no charge. and the dining room had a grandfathers clock that is to die for. It takes you back in time...

We stayed for two days visiting family in Moundsville. We enjoyed our room at the Wells Inn, a room that took us back to the 19th Century, with its quaint beauty. Although we could have stayed in Moundsville if we wanted the sameness of one Holiday Inn Express we could find anywhere and everywhere, we chose the Wells Inn for...
