We've been stopping here for 15 years on our North/South trip. It's a few minutes from the highway. Dependable rooms with queen beds, nice srve-yourself breakfast, Friendly front desk. Interersting Inn. Ashville is a college town (randolph macon) and you can walk/drive around the college. There's a wonderful dinner area one block north, our favorite is Iron Horse.

This place was situated in the center of this small town but felt as if we were in the countryside. An old locomotive line had a train stop right in front and although it was a bit noisy at times when the train came through it brought me back to what it was like a hundred years ago. Very quaint.

Looking for a charming friendly place to stay my wife and I stumbled on this hidden Gem while walking around the village. Located across the street from the Amtrak, it's convenient and comfortable. Other reviews point out the dated fixtures, but I look at it as a quaint step back in time. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are clean,... More

We spent the night here and it was fantastic! The facility was certainly not run down but rather cozy and had a very "colonial" feel. More importantly, you can watch the CSX and Amtrak trains go by from the second floor balcony! We were in room 208 and our grandsons simply could run to the windows to watch the trains... More

My husband and I stayed at the Inn for friends of ours wedding. The place was so run down. We arrived before anyone else that weekend in October. I was so disappointed for my Friend who was getting married there. We had a room upstairs in the back corner of the Inn with access to the rear porch. We stepped... More

We have moved guest rooms around, added a fitness and business center and also have increased our hours for breakfast and in the evenings to better accommodate our guests.... More

This historic hotel is uniquely situated in the heart of Ashland, VA. There are plenty of chain hotel/motels nearby but if you prefer to be in the heart of town you can't get any better than this. In fact the AMTRAK train tracks are just steps away from the front entrance. This hotel could be a real gem with very... More

Looking forward to meeting friends to listen to live music at the Ashland Coffee and Tea. Inn recommended by friends who stay there all the time. The inn was pretty and has a lot of potential but hasn't been updated since it was built. The decor is early 80's country. Complete with dried flower bouquets on the walls. We asked... More
