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

After an online search i saw the photos of the inn and decided to give the Wattstull Inn a try. Friendly family ownership and a maintained property. The room was clean... More

We stopped here on our way home from a visit to our daughter & family in PA. Read the reviews & decided to give it a try. It is not a fancy place, but the rooms are nice and clean. The view from the front of the inn was breathtaking. The rate was very reasonable. Will definitely plan on staying... More

I stayed here last spring on a trip north and stayed again on this trip a few weeks ago. Only two rooms were rented on a Saturday night but weather was iffy. Again I really like this place. Rate is great, there is a fridge, plenty of heat. No places to eat when you arrive later in the evening but... More
