“"Elegant?" According to Whom?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

Billing itself as a classic, 1930s property, the Hotel Genetti uses enticing adjectives like "elegant" and "legendary" to describe itself on numerous billboards in and around Williamsport and then completely fails to deliver. Posters touting a Mardi Gras party sponsored by Bud Light were Scotch-taped everywhere, including the "elegant" lobby. A bad sign. The lobby was a mess, with tables and chairs stacked everywhere, and the carpet needed vacuuming so badly it actually crunched under our feet. The room was nice, but only at a glance. Upon closer inspection the couch was severely stained -- by what, I don't want to know -- and the bathroom was like a closet with plumbing. The hotel looked like it had been restored in the 1980s and has been coasting into decrepitude ever since. Management is the only difference between a grand 1930s property that stays grand and a grand 1930s property that becomes a fleabag haunted by its own ghosts. Hotel Genetti is at this tipping point and shows no signs of moving in the right direction. The staff, however, were wonderful. They know.

First of all let me say that this is one of the worst hotels that I've ever stayed in. The room was small and dirty with lumpy beds and a disgusting bathroom. The shower didnt get hot, the toilet was stained and there was mold growing on the walls and unknown stains in the floor. The parking lot is difficult to get into as is the hotel itself. If I have a choice I will not be staying there again!!!

Room Tip: Wear shoes in the room.

We were here on business, just for 1 night. We booked a suite and it was fantastic with amazing views (8th floor). It had a kitchen area that was fully stocked with pots, pans, utensils, etc. The beds were comfy, two flat screen TVs, and very clean. The staff were friendly and welcoming, not to mention the prices are fantastic for the area. Be sure to check out the restaurant downstairs, it has a great selection of beers on tap and excellent food. We will be sure to stay here again if we are back in the area!

I stayed at the Genetti Lycoming recently and had a very pleasant experience. The staff was both helpful and friendly, and the room was clean and nicely decorated. The hallway has many pictures of events that were held there in the past. Nice historical touch. Nice place to stay.

Room Tip: My 9th floor room was quiet with a view of Fourth Street.

Welcoming, clean, older hotel makes for a comfortable stay. Rooms are updated, and current, but they have done a nice job of preserving a bit of history. Great place to stay and catch a show at the neighboring Community Arts Center. Will stay again!
