Very clean room, and beds. The room is spartan but very adequate, and a great value, also pet friendly. Charlie- John is a great host. The price SMOKES the rest of the spots to stay. They want way to much. Very close to great Food, and downtown. Please enjoy this place, and the rest of Frostburg when you can.

Downside: when cycling the Great Allegheny Passage, Charlie's is quite an uphill haul from the trail - about 1.5 miles and it was raining too. The positives: Clean Great value John let us put our bikes in a spare motel room overnight Everything worked An experience - a real motel in the real America Try it!!

Based on the other reviews I stayed here one night on my way to Maine. I called John a week before I needed a room since the website said they were booked. He said if he had a cancellation he would call, and indeed he did two days later. I arrived at 3pm and saw a note on the office... More

We enjoyed our stay at Charlie's Motel. The owner is kind, personable, and has a great sense of humor. The room was plain--no frills--but VERY clean. I have stayed at many of the chain hotels that cost much more money that were not nearly as clean as Charlie's. We were asleep each night by 9:00 p.m. and never heard so... More

I have to qualify this review by saying we arrived exhausted and thirsty after 10 hours on our motorcycle, travelling up from WV. This is no 3-star motel, but any flaws we might have seen in our room were invisible to us, especially after the greeting we got from "Charlie". We laughed at the his & hers colour co-ordinated towels,... More

Our family was looking for a simple and affordable place to stay on our way to Ohiopyle. Charlie's Motel was perfect. For a flat $55 (and less than the cost of dinner) we had a large room that was within walking distance of downtown, The Freeze ice cream shop, and restaurants. Our second floor room had a mini refrigerator and... More

Very straight forward and accommodating owner. Clean, A/C worked well, fridge/freezer, microwave. Love that is was across from the local ice cream stand. Very easy to find. Enjoyed our stay! Would definitely stay again!

Its clean. Got a great nites sleep, and a great shower the next day. Great deal for the price. Dont expect everything to match. Its older, but so am I. Lol. The guy in charge is a straight shooter, with a good sense of humor. I would stay there again.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights during the Holiday weekend while biking along the GAP. Accommodation was simple, for people who spend their time mostly outdoor and don’t need too much space in the room. What we got for $55 was a small double-bed room with a little refrigerator/freezer, a microwave oven, a TV set and WiFi... More

When I travel these days, I'll generally opt for locally-owned hotels instead of big brands/chains. You generally don't get a pool or soap with a logo, but you can discover some hidden gems. Charlie's has a spartan, basic look, but it's clean and quiet. I really liked the layout of the room. I'm a light sleeper, so I appreciated having... More
