“Biking the Allegheny and C and O Trail”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 October 2012

This was the worst B/B on our bike trip. Way overpriced! Host was not very friendly. My husband forgot his camelback there and we continually tried to call her for a few days and left messages but she never returned our call. We were offering to pay her to mail it to us but she never would return our massages. PLUS - she insisted that we pay in cash (now what kind of a business only takes cash) Then she didn't want to give us a receipt for the payment. Our friends insisted on a receipt - she was not happy but gave us one. Not welcoming at all, told us that we couldn't wash out our clothes in the bathrooms (which were shared down the hall). This was the most expensive B/B on our trip but was by far the worst! Would not recommend it.

Of the seven nights a group of women spent cycling the trails, this B & B was the lowest on the totem pole. It wasn't bad just not great. Unlike all the other places we stayed at we felt that the host was in it mainly as a business. From lack of welcome up front, to signs posted indiscretely advising of what not to do,and a somewhat mediocre breakfast....it just was not up to it's competition in the other towns. Price did not justify the ordinariness of the place.
Customer service not this B & B's strength.

Close to the C&O Trail but overpriced compared to other B&B's. It was clean but lacked ammenities and detail. No kleenex, television, internet, complimentary beverages. Must share bathroom. The bed creaked and woke you up every time you rolled over. Also owner would not waive cancellation fee eventhough the trail was impassable due to the July 2012 storm and fallen trees blocking the trial. Every other B&B let us cancel without penalty. Next time we'll bike right on past and stay in Shephardstown.

Thank you for staying with me. From the moment my guests arrive they are ask to make themselves at home. I take pride in making my guests comfortable. I offer many amenities such Kleenex, lotions, blow dryer, in the central hall, additional pillows, blankets and laundry service upon request, snacks and beverages in the breakfast room, a basket with personal and pharmaceutical items in the foyer, body wash, conditioner and shampoo in each bath with plush linens, individual air conditioning controls in each room, television in the family room, Wifi,. I have a water barrel and hose for washing equipment and a secure garage for storage. As for the bed creaking, it has never been brought to my attention, but it is being addressed and will be taken care of. On my website it is stated and when a reservation is made, it is told that a two week cancellation applies. I had guests coming and going with no mention that the trail was impassable. Given that I am a small business, it is important that I have policies in place. I will continue hosting and catering to all my guests and welcome all.

Very nice bed and breakfast conveniently located near the tow path. The host is very hospitable and personable, and her B&B is quite comfortable. We recommend this as a place to stay while cycling the tow path.

Tanya does a fabulous job of making you feel right at home in her inn. The rooms are well appointed and spotless, breakfast was terrific, and she even managed to cook up steak dinners for 7 hungry guys who came in from a day on the C&O Trail. Highly recommended.

When we arrived we were hungry and tired. The host was extremely helpful, provided us a spot for our bikes, nice warm showers and then even transported us to a local restuarant. The B&B was beautiful, very cozy, and clean. There were healthy snacks available at all times. The host went out of her way to make us feel at home. My friends and i are looking forward to returning next year when were travel the canal.

CandleLight Inn is a quaint B & B, with a great location in Williamsport. Tonya Williams, the Innkeeper caters to cyclists.
Belgian waffles for breakfast were a delicous treat.
The room was tastefully decorated & the bathroom was clean.
Tonya is very hospitable & makes extra effort to accomodate her guests.
I reccomend this Inn for any travelers, not just cyclists.
