Stayed here almost a week. Renovations still underway. First: Owners and staff...you will not find a more hospitable and friendly owner and staff no matter where you go (in my opinion). Charles and his sister Anne went out of their way to help at every turn...you wont find that at a major chain. Hotel is old...hardwood floors thoughout, my room...

I have stayed at The Wells Inn twice now. The first time was a few years ago, shortly after I was married (before the new owner took over). Although the rooms did not look like what they do in the pictures online (mismatched furniture -- modern/older), my stay was moderately comfortable. At the time, I WILL say that I wasn't...

Every year, my sisters and I sneak away for a few days of catch-up. This year the planning sister thought Sistersville would be the perfect spot for us, and she was right. Knowing ahead of time that the hotel was being restored, I was prepared for a lot of inconvenience. I was pleasantly surprised at how little the ongoing work...

"I was riding my bike in excess of 150 miles to Wells Inn from Ohio and needed to cross the Ohio River by ferry at 6pm. A couple of days prior to my stay the owner called me and said the ferry was not running but he would send someone to pick me up....a 30 mile drive. This was the...

We traveled from out of state and did not know what time check in was. Had a reservation for one night. Was told we could not check in until 5pm, this was at 12:30pm. OK, I can understand but would of liked to get situated before a long night of car races in front of us. Checked in at 12:30...

My son and I had lunch today 5/12/12 at the Wells Hotel the food was great and the service was excellent. The pricing was very reasonable. I'm from out back of Friendly and have not been down to Sistersville in years, the trip was well worth it.

I am local to the area and admittedly have not spent a night in the guest rooms, but my best friend who was visiting from out of town did. Her room was small (the bathroom was very small), but clean and adequate. However, the food in the restaurant is incredible. I've eaten several meals and have yet to be disappointed....

This was our first stay here. I understand the hotel used to be well-known and a place to see and be seen years ago. After its passing into various hands in the last several years, the owners appear to have done a lot of hard work to make the place clean and inviting. Our room was large and comfortable. It...

Disappointed to say the least. My wife talked this place up to the nines. The lack of alternatives is the only reason I stayed the second night, I was disgusted the first night. The owner was on the premises the first two nights of our stay, and two nights in a row he looked me staight into my eyes and...

“Ask for what you want, and they will try to make you comfortable. We asked for a quiet room. I expect, now that I have stayed, that they are all fairly quiet unless you have a rowdy neighbor.”
