Everything was perfect
The staff did everything to make our stay most memorable.
The room was very spacious and beautiful,
and the restaurant was top shelf every meal was magnificent.
We will always return, BAVARIAN INN was a self contained oasis!

This is the 4th year we have visited the Inn to celebrate Thanksgiving. It has become a tradition for us. The staff are friendly, the end room with balcony and gas fire just a delight to relax in. The Inn is on the Potomac River and there are wonderful walks along the riverside in either direction. The town of Shepherdstown itself is also a lovely place to visit. There are many small shops and restaurants of all types.

The Game Menu at the Inn is delicious and is the main reason we chose this hotel in the first place some years ago. The Thanksgiving Day menu does have the traditional turkey but we always choose from the more European dishes.

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lovely place.

Room Tip: The rooms in the chalets have the best views over the Potomac River.

Accommodations were very nice. We had lots of room to relax after days exploring the Civil War's Maryland Campaign of 1862 Having double sinks in the bathroom made mornings much easier as we started our days at 7 am. The shower was slippery and there were no safety bars.
Our group's meals were pre-ordered through the group and were excellent. They served soft pretzels at lunch -- yummy!

Room Tip: We did enjoy the Potomac room. There were no elevators so we did need to carry luggage up some steps...

Recently stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. We had stayed at the Inn before and knew what to expect and the staff did not disappoint. Exquisite service and very friendly. Our accomodations were top notch. We dined at the Inn's dining room and the food was scrumptious!
(But, of course!) The Inn sits alongside the Potomac River and is nestled in quaint Shepherdstown, West Virginia. There is a lot to do if you are looking for that quiet getaway. A quick drive in one direction leads you to Sharpsburg and Antietam Battlefield or you can walk the cozy streets of Shepherdstown and visit the shops. Perhaps you want to shop - well Martinsburg and the Hagerstown Outlets are just a stone's throw away.

Beautiful views accessed only by standing on the balcony. We were disappointed with the average motel room we paid at the top price point for. This is not a four diamond property as advertised. From not receiving a confirmation, although two different emails were sent with this request, to a "view" that you had to go outside the room to enjoy, to "no meals provided"- not even a breakfast roll?, to a nonworking fireplace which we notified the front desk when we arrived ( no one came, told them not to come after 8pm), the whole very expensive experience left us with major disappointment on our 40th wedding anniversary. We would not recommend you spend your money or anniversary here.

Dear Pam C,
I am sorry to hear of your disappointment. We attempted to send three confirmation emails, yet your email blocked each one. I don't know where you expected meals to be included, but I apologize if you were somehow misled. Perhaps opening the curtains in front of the windows may have helped you see the view of the River a bit better. I am very sorry that the fireplace was not working at the time, and also apologize that the adjusted room rate wasn't sufficient compensation. We wish you the best.

The room was clean. Towels were thinner than I would like. Much like any motel room
We had stayed in a room with a fireplace previously and I would definitely recommend upgrading
Nice breakfast & dinner in the hotel dining room
Having fireplaces on was a nice touch

Dear Valued Guest,
Thank you for your comments. I will make sure to examine the towels in each room as we recently upgraded to what we feel are very nice quality. Hopefully you'll be able to join us again and enjoy one of the Luxury style rooms so you can get that fireplace. We hope to welcome you back soon!
