I stayed at The Coates for an event. The staff was very accomodating and friendly. There appear to be two sides of the hotel, an older one and a new one. They are currently in the process of updating the hotel in sections. However, considering the price, I had very few things to complain about. Yes, having a room near... More

The hotel is an older one but a very charming, and welcoming place to stay. The front desk staff was helpful, and nice. The room was basic, but clean. There was a lot of things to do, and places to eat right within walking distance from the hotel. No continental breakfast, but they do have coffee, and doughnuts in the... More

With very limited options I booked a reservation at the Coates. This building had the potential to be charming but falls flat, in need of serious updates. The whole hotel smells of chlorine, and when we opened the door to the room, the smell of cigarettes hits you in the face. The walls were scuffed, and made the room dirty... More

This is definitely an older facility. The public areas show lots of wear and tear. My room was large and well-appointed. The pool-side rooms are convenient for swimmers, and for socializing if you are traveling with a group, but they are also very noisy throughout the evening. There are not many choices for dining in the immediate neighborhood, and their... More

The banquet staff was really good. The break food in our meeting room was very good. The meeting room was comfortable and the mics worked well. The banquet was so-so. The sleeping room was really bad. Carpets need cleaning. Had to run the hot water forever to actually get hot water. Hot tub down. Front desk staff not very welcoming... More

We stayed their over Valentine's Weekend and found this historical hotel to be charming. It's not a five star place, but the staff made you feel welcome. What's lacking is an in house restaurant so that we don't have to go out in the cold. However, if you looking from a reasonable priced place in the heart of the Iron... More

We needed a place to stay close to the Elks in Virginia for an event, so the location was convenient. That was the only positive about this hotel. It is in desperate need of updating. The rooms are so OLD and worn. And - fyi - no blow dryers, which I found very odd and inconvenient since I did not... More

I recently stayed at the Coates, and I quite enjoyed my experience. Only thing is that its pool area is surrounded by rooms, and another section of the is hotel connected by walkways between buildings. Once you get the hang of the flow of the building, its not so bad. Liked the staff, and I recommend choosing the rooms overlooking... More

My family and I stayed for three days here, and were given a discounted rate. The kids loved the pool area, and me and wife enjoyed the bar. I asked the desk clerk if they had any silverware, and he ran them up to me. I recommend giving this place a shot.
