We were there four days. We picked it because of it's location. We were on a motorcycle trip and it was very close to the Blue Ridge Pkwy, The Natural Bridge, Appomattox Court House, the Confederate Museum, William & Lee University with the Robert E. Lee's Chapel & Museum, VMI and it's Museum (great place), and Stonewall Jackson's House (in... More

Worst place ever. Dirty, smelly, overpriced, nonfunctional Internet, dangerous appliances in disrepair, uncomfortable beds. You will be more comfortable in a car or tent. At $59.95 plus tax it should at least include breakfast with such a crappy room. We were told we'd have two beds, but only given one and then told we could either have smoking or else... More

Stink bugs on the curtins mold and mildew on the head board, stanied sheets, door that badly locks, and a smell that... More

I know this was a cheap room (if you call $50 cheap), but even the cheapest rooms should be clean. This room was absolutely filthy and full of bugs.I would have been better off sleeping in my car. I will never stay here again.

An old motel but very clean and the shower was better than comfort inn and holiday inn we have stayed before. Manny, the owner, ex IBM employee, is very friendly. Located in a dormant. City which means a quite Night. Not much more to say.

This was our last resort for a hotel, we were tired and have 4 cranky kids, so we accepted a $70 room. The hotel looks creepy and ran down, but the owner/front desk person was extremely nice. The room was a typical old motel room, NOTHING to mention that would make me come back. They advertised free breakfast (which is... More

This motel doesn't appear to be much on the outside, but my room was impressively clean and large as well. It very obviously does come from another era, but I found this charming rather than a bad thing. Overall, great value for money and a friendly owner too!
