Our Guests Love Us. . . But don’t take our word for it!
TripAdvisor is the leading online travel review website, we have also included reviews from guests that have emailed us, as well as from Expedia, Travelocity and other major travel sites. You won’t find many hotels that provide a direct link to their reviews (for obvious reasons). We do, however, because we know how hard we work to provide the best stay possible for our guests. Our reviewers know it, and so will you after only one stay.
We had the pleasure of staying here and would like to give a shout out to Alicia, Ron and Andrea for the great service checking in and help about the area. Lots of fun history within walking distance.
Historic, comfortable hotel
I stayed overnight in Williamsport on a motorcycle tour. The renovated Genetti was perfect. I was upgraded to a suite, very comfortable, clean and peaceful. All the staff were friendly and helpful. Gated parking lot made me feel safer leaving the bike overnight. Full hot breakfast was excellent. Across the street is a fun little pub with good food, beer and conversation. Along same street is a shopping district that I enjoyed walking through. The entire experience made me want to come back.
Great stay in my old home town
I grew up in Williamsport and returned to visit and have dinner with old friends for the first time in 40 years. Since the Lycoming Hotel (now the Genetti Hotel) had been THE place to stay I went on line to book a room but their site showed nothing available. Called the property directly and spoke with reservations manager Cheryl who was able to find me a room at a reasonable price.
My room was the Bob Hope suite with a large corner living room (sofa, chairs, desk, wet bar with refrigerator and microwave) and a connecting, comfortable bedroom and bath. Large flat screen TVs in both. The accommodations were clean and quiet and I especially enjoyed the historical ambiance of the hotel with old photos and antiques within the room and common areas of the property.
A night's stay includes a free breakfast which goes far beyond the usual make-your-own-waffles and cereal offered by most hotel chains. A buffet of fresh cut fruit, juices, coffee, eggs, sausage, bacon, corn beef hash, potatoes, bagels and toast was excellent.
Downtown location is near many bars and restaurants and a gated parking lot is adjacent to the hotel with no charge to guests. Staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful. This is a great change of pace from the average chain hotel and I will definitely stay here my next visit.
Lovely piece of history
I was greeted at the front desk with a warm friendly face and all my wishes for rooms fulfilled. We had two rooms, One was an accessible room with twin queen beds the other room just a single queen. Both rooms were clean and a pleasure to be in. Yes this is not a new ultra modern hotel we came here because it was not only downtown but for the ambience of a lovely old hotel. The morning hot breakfast was outstanding one of the best I've ever had at a hotel if not the best. The hotel is convenient downtown too many shops restaurants and adult beverages.
Great choice if you like historic hotels
The Genetti is the place to stay if your are going to a show at the Community Arts center. They have a cool bar and a nice buffet before a lot of the shows.
The hotel itself has ton's of character that you would expect in an older historic hotel. The rooms are fairly modern, but you wouldn't want too modern or it would take away from the atmosphere.
I've always had a comfortable bed and a clean room when we've been there and the staff are very good about helping you with dinner reservations or activities.
Great Down-Town Location
Spent 2 nights here for conference. We had a double Queen Room. There are many different room configurations available, but book as early as possible to get the best choice. Rooms were exceptionally clean and fresh, bathrooms: some are re-modeled, some are a little older, most are not very large, but very clean and supplied with toiletries and clean towels daily. Restaurants nearby, including a Wegman's Grocery store and Kohl's Department store. Several quaint shops and restaurant varieties near-by.
Old Town Feel in the heart of Little League Town
Enjoyed the charm and service of this hotel in Williamsport. The old time feel of this historic hotel, complete with the old time service, was enjoyed during my recent one night stay. Very nice change from the chain box motels that are everywhere. Scheduled another night for my next upcoming business stay.
Lovely Old Characterful Place
Well, what can I say, such a special hotel. It's owned by one family and you can tell. Full of character inside, friendly staff and we got an upgrade to a suite!
Room was lovely, masses of space, everything had been considered.
Parking free, at rear of hotel. The walls in reception are covered in photographs from the history of the hotel, makes it so much more interesting to stay, much better than the normal chain, faceless hotels.
Breakfast was a huge array of good choices, all included in the very reasonable price.
Highly recommend this place. I did ask about the ghost....it's not 11th floor (there is no 11th floor) it's a room on the 8th floor that's haunted. If you want to be scared ask for it??
