After reading up on the Caboose Motel, thought this would be a really unique place to stay overnight with the thought of bringing a group next summer. Sure am glad we tried it out first. Advertised as clean and newly renovated. Certainly not recently renovated (ad says been renting since 1986 and, I do believe the last time renovated). Had... More

We saw this place and thought it would be fun to stay in a Caboose, turns out they have other rooms that aren't in a caboose. Our room smelled like mildew and there were dog hair all over our bed and I found and killed two fleas that were also on the bed!!! I had to spray everything with big... More

Outstanding way to spend a night: in a real train caboose. Although rather spartan due to the size, it had a comfortable bed, and was most cozy. Neat way to cap off a little vacation for 2 or with kids. The manager even let us park our Goldwing under the awning so it would not get so wet if it... More

Can't get much cooler than sleeping in a caboose, especially when you're on a road trip with three young boys! We found this motel on http://roadtrippers.com and immediately knew that we had to make it one of our stops along the way to Canada. You can stay in the motel or one of five refinished caboose (cabeese?). Of course we... More

We really weren't sure what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised with the comfort and cleanliness. Obviously if you have no interest in trains or goofy hotels, then don't stay here, but if you are a rail-fan or just have a good sense of humor, then this is the place for you. Perfect family place if you have some... More

What a great experience, probably not the most luxurious of hotel rooms but surely has to be the most fun. What a hoot, literally as there was a sound system in the caboose that played steam train sounds whoo whoo, crazy but cute. There was a lot more space than I had imagined and the small but efficient bathroom was... More

This review is for the caboose lodging only, not the motel rooms. We stayed here solely for the the unique experience of sleeping in a caboose. It was the perfect place to kick off our tour of silly attractions en route to Niagara Falls from northern Virginia. Upon arriving I was relieved to see that the grounds and exteriors of... More

We stayed at this motel 10 years ago and enjoyed it. Needed a place in the area again and so reserved without asking any questions. Well, turns out it's been sold a few times and things have gone downhill. The pool was filled in. The rooms had no ice buckets. If you want ice you go to the main office... More
