We stayed here two nights in August on an anniversary weekend. Room was clean and well appointed; staff friendly and helpful; and motel is in a great location for touring the area and taking in all the things around Abingdon.

Thank you for reviewing our hotel. Many of our guests enjoy the well-known Virginia Creeper Trail while in the area. Abingdon, with it's history, local attractions, and great local dining, provides a wonderful experience for anniversaries or just a short get-away. Happy belated anniversary and hope to see you again soon !! Danny W. Owen Guest Relations Manager More

While it has the look of a very new motel, the entire staff was well trained, pleasant and well informed. Room and bath were both quite ample and clean. Did not have my pet along, but was glad to know they do take them and that some rooms are well located for pet owners access in the case of those... More

On cross country trip and return we stayed in six Holiday Inn Express properties and this was by far the worst. Not awful but not up to the standards of the chain. The minimum requirements for a hotel are safe, clean, quiet and a comfortable bed. This hotel missed on two of four. The mattress clearly needed to be replaced... More

The hotel is very clean. The service is amazing. There is nothing to complain about, since it is the best hotel on route 81. During breakfast, the staff came around to ask us how the food was. This is the best hotel within a 50 mile radius of Abingdon, by far.

We always stay here because everyone is so remarkably friendly from the housekeeping staff to the breakfast cooks. Our dogs are treated as guests, and pets are the norm not the exception. Hospitality goes so far to make a roadside hotel feel special. The room is spacious too and you can crank the A/C!
