We were going to sees friends band at Lady Luck Casino and wanted to stay close since the weather was awful everywhere else was sold out. Since they do not have online reservations you to have to call them on the phone to reserve a room. Glad I did. We had a basic queen room which was extremely clean, newly... More

Very clean and roomy enough. Excellent value and close proximity to the Nemacolin Resort which has a lot of activities and good restaurants, plus casino ! Willing to come back if in this area again. Paid less than $70 including tax. Close to Fallingwater.

My husband and I plus some friends stayed here for a mid-week night while we were on a motorcycle trip. We had three rooms total (4, 11 and 14) and all were very clean and unlike chain hotels they were all decorated slightly different. The rooms all had shower stalls which is fine with me; I don't often take a... More

The National Trail Motel is not your grandfather's motel. It is your great-grandfather's motor inn or motor court before the word "motel" was coined. The room was small, but the bathroom made the room look spacious. Twin beds were right inside the door and there was an oversized chest of drawers and a bureau. The 25 inch picture tube television,... More

As you probably know, there is not a whole lot of places to stay in Markleysburg and out of the places I saw, this was the cleanest/neatest looking place as far as curb appeal goes. As for our stay, I couldn't have asked for better accommodations from a 5 star hotel. The owner's were very nice and understanding, our room... More

I've reviewed Nemacolin before, so my readers know how crazy I am about the place. When I don't have $400 to spend on lodging there, I always choose the National Trail motel. At around $60 a night, I'm five minutes away from Nemacolin at a clean, safe hotel with amazing mountain breezes blowing softly through my window. Highly recommended.

I knew when I made the reservation that this was a basic local motel with no amenities and that would have been fine. But the room we had had dirty torn wallpaper on the walls with stains on it, no plug in the bathroom for hair dryer or electric shaver, cigarette burn in the bed spread, but the worst thing... More

We would like to thank you for staying with National Trail Motel. We are sorry you didn't enjoy your stay. The motel units were built over 50 years ago and back then they didn't put outlets in every room and where they did put them, there were few installed. We are trying to do the updating but this takes time... More

We had a pleasant stay, the room was clean, quiet and homey. The room rate was very affordable, and the staff was very accommodating. They may lack in some amenities, but they more than make up for it with their friendly service and reasonable price. The location was just right and is handy to a couple of real good local... More

The rooms are basic, but has everything you need for a few nights stay. The rooms are clean and have nice bath towels. Each room had a small air conditioner, refrig, and microwave. Some things...

The owners were very accommodating, when we first arrived we got a room without a closet and one small dresser which was a problem because there were 3 of us and we were staying 5 days. My husband explained the situation and we were upgraded to 2 rooms with a connecting door at no additional charge. If you have a... More
