We booked this place at the last minute for a weekend getaway. It is economical but clean l. Although on the highway, it was quiet at night. Not great if u want to spend time cooped up, but if u need a motel room to sleep while spending most of ur time doing outdoor activities. .. This is more than... More

I love this motel! Me and my family stayed here in June, and it is such a great place to stay! We met the owners when we checked in, and they were so nice and hospitable! The rooms are so well decorated it feels as if you were sitting in a homey country-like house! I could tell the owners personally... More

This a small, one-story motor inn. It is very basic, but fit my needs perfectly. The room was clean, fairly large with two double beds. Everything worked, including the WiFi. If you need the perks and amenities of a major chain, there are several in the area at 50%-100% greater cost.

Several weeks ago my in-laws were both killed in a house fire in nearby WV. This was our first stay. It became a haven for us during those first few days when we were still in a state of disbelief and grief. The staff was fantastic and very supportive. The room was clean and even smelt good vs the fake... More

This was our second stay at the Inn! We stayed there for the first time one year ago. We loved it so much the last time that we decided to return there again. We loved the room last year and this year the room was even better! It had been newly refurbished. The beds were super comfy and everything was... More

I find the review below on the Garrett Inn appalling and immature. I have stayed at this motel several times and it is by far the best value for a quality stay by the lake. The owners happen to be some of the nicest people that I have ever met. They do everything possible to make your stay pleasant and... More

I have never met a more rude owner in my life. I stayed once and everything was fine the I called to make reservations for another stay and he told me that I "trashed" my room and I was never allowed to stay there again. I clearly did not "trash" the room so I asked what was wrong with the... More

I stayed here for a weekend skiing trip to Wisp. It is very close to the slopes (maybe a 5 minute drive), and on the way there are lots of places to eat and things to see (as many as can be expected at Wisp). This hotel is by far the CLEANEST place I have every stayed at. The decor... More

We visited the Garrett Inn for the first time. The room was spacious enough for us (2 adults, 2 kids), clean and proper. The heating system a little noisy but tolerable. The landlords were very friendly; they supplied us with extra towels. The Inn is about 10 min away from the resort. Price is unbeatable; we did enjoy our stay.... More
