I enjoy visiting the Penn Wells, everyone is very friendly, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. All the places to see the Grand Canyon of PA, the towns of Wellsboro itself just brings back memories of day gone bye.

Breakfast was great. Staff was very friendly. We got lots of use of the pool and hot tub. Room was big and nice, very comfy beds. Only criticism (we were in original part of building) was that the bathroom could use some updating.

The Staff is what make this wonderful hotel so enjoyable. The food is great and the beds are soft. This Property is without a doubt a must visit when traveling to north central PA.
