There was no internet, even though the manager insisted there was. My girls couldn't do their homework because there was o connection. It was a big room, but so old and crummy. There was a strange salt like substance on my daughter's pillow. No hot water and mold in the fridge. Look for a better option if you need a... More

we pulled off the highway in Buena Vista and found two drive-up motels -- the Buena Vista looked a bit better than the other one so we tried it. At first I thought we were out of luck because at 6 PM the office was closed. However, to the right of the office door was a note and a corded... More

Motel clerk was very friendly. However, toilet was dirty and I had to clean it. Beds were clean and comfortable. Rooms need updating. Only gave two towels for three people. I went to office and asked for one and was told would have to bring it to my room. Never showed up with the towel. You get what you pay... More

We checked in after a long day on the road from Ohio. We get into the room and the smell about knocks you over. I had to use my body spray to make the room somewhat tolerable. There was a dirty wash cloth on the bathroom floor, Moldy bathroom tiles, dead bugs on the sink, ceiling tiles cracked and bowing.... More

This is an OK place to stay while traveling. I used it twice this trip. Once on the way down and once on the way back for a motorcycle trip I had another real destination further away. It is inexpensive and it is close to the Blue Ridge Parkway. I have used on-line bookings or have just stopped in. There... More

As I've said more than once; independent lodgings have, for at least the last couple decades, the options of joining a chain, becoming a home-like charming place, or being just plain cheap. I've stayed at places that have made each of these choices, and this one has taken option three. Stayed here one night in order to get an early... More

I was on a motorcycle trip from Florida riding the Blue Ridge Pkwy. It was getting late in the afternoon, the GPS showed two motels in Buena vista, Virginia, the Budget in was a joke, it should be condemned, I didn't stay there. I rode just down the street to the second motel in town, the Buena Vista motel. I... More

If you are looking for a new modern room, lots of amenities, large flat screen TV, and a sumtuous breakfast, drive by this motel. It has none of these. It is basic lodging. We stayed there for 3 nights to attend a musical event in the area. The room was dated to say the least but it had a better... More

This place doesn't look too bad from the outside, so when I needed a place to stay in that area I made a phone reservation (no e-mail) about a month in advance. Then I called two more times to confirm. I clearly requested and was told I would have a non-smoking room, but none were available when I checked in.... More

We were looking for something very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and this fit in with that plan. This is a very basic motel. We didn't expect much and didn't get much. They do offer discounts to local restaurant but we had already eaten. The man who checked us in was polite and the other guests were quiet.
