We stopped at Wattstull Inn on a trip from Tennessee to the east coast of Virginia. I felt like I was 10 years old again. My father and I were traveling together and this was the first time I've stayed at a one story motel in I don't know how long. The room was clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy.... The... More

I stayed one night at this "inn". It is an older hotel with no modern updates. Not a big deal, meet our needs. We had two rooms, that kind of connect via a front door foyer. Each hotel room down had a red/green turn dial similar to a occupy/unoccupied sign on port a potty. This place has vintage charm. One... More

Will be my half-way mark layover from now on. Quiet and perfectly appointed for an overnight stay. My room was freshly painted (odor present,) but not overwhelmingly so to ruin my stay. TV was an old cathode ray tube type and the AC performed well. Refrigerator inc., but no microwave or coffee pot.

We had a group event at the Wattstull in late April/early May and it was great. We have our event there every year and this year noticed some upgrades. Owner is always welcoming and did some nice things for us this year, things he didn't have to do. Rooms are always clean and comfortable. I love the full length porch... More

This is a very beautiful place to stay. The Inn reminded me of a 1950's "mom and pop" roadside motel. Nothing fancy....just the basics and very quiet! Loved it. There isn't a coffee pot in the room (I'm spoiled!), but there is a wonderful restaurant on the property. The view is absolutely breathtaking. Staff very friendly. Would definitely stay again.

This was the first time our family of 5 needed a hotel/motel with adjoining rooms b/c our youngest is no longer in a pack-n-play. I was reluctant to try a motel but it was getting late, my husband was tired of driving, and this was what was available. I was very happy to find that the adjoining rooms had only... More

We had a bus breakdown. We nursed it up the grade to see a great view. There is just enough of a paved driveway to be the perfect space to work under the bus. It saved a tow bill. I will probably stop again to share this spot with my wife.

Not a lot of surprises here. A basic, very clean, country roadside style over sized hotel room at a good price with some great vista views. Only found two things missing -- no electrical outlets or quest controlled fan in bathroom. Also can be challenging to find someone in the office if you need help with something (thou they are...

This hotel is the type of facility that was popular in the 1960's before the chain hotels became predominant. The rooms have changed very little since the building was constructed in 1959 with the exception of a more recently added microwave oven, refrigerator and flat screen TV. Coffee is available in the "lobby". The hotel overlooks the surrounding mountains and... More

This little hotel is off an exit off I-81 that has only a handful of things. Its a quiet offbeat place that many probably do not think to stop. The rooms are quaint and clean. It was quite comfortable and after 10 hours of driving and being stuck behind a wreck it was a relief to get off and find... More
