This hotel was one of the very few hotels in southern Virginia that accepted pets so we booked with them, only staying 1 night. The staff and hotel seemed pretty nice. The room rate and free breakfast were good. Our room was NOT great. No carpet on the floor, not particularly clean and it reeked of cigarette smoke.

This was by far disgusting. After a 3 hour drive we get to our room to find blood spots on the comforter and BOOGERS on the sheets! We stayed in a double bed suite because all the king suites were full, so we had another bed to sleep in. They offer a "free continental" breakfast that is not even worth... More

The room needed to be vacuumed, the sink was backed up, the tub was very old cast iron and needed updated. The rooms need to be updated; very tired looking. The beds were fine and the sheets were clean. The staff was warm and friendly. Internet was good but breakfast had canned fruit and no whole grains. Offered grits, gravy,... More

Room was at rear of motel, but had to park in front after I went out. Room was clean and air conditioning was was working. The room had cable TV and Wi-Fi. Motel operated a bar for local patrons and had 2 uniformed security guards stationed outside. There was a short line, but it did not appear worth any cover... More

The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was surprisingly good, but this hotel still falls short of my expectations for a Best Western. The first room we were checked into had filthy floors. They were laminate hard wood, and clearly they hadn't been cleaned after the last guests. We were given a new room which was cleaner, but it... More

This hotel is older, but fairly clean. The front desk clerk was friendly. I was traveling on business, and was given a room on the 2nd floor, in the back. There was no elevator, so I had to drag my bags upstairs. I felt a little uneasy with my room facing a fence with construction equipment in it. I don't... More

One of the best breakfast bars I have ever encountered. The bar had very good service and a good selection of drinks. The hotel staff was helpful and eager to help. The restaurant menu selections were limited but the items that we sampled were very good and the serving sizes were more than enough. I would recommend this Best Western... More

I booked two rooms at this hotel when most hotels in Lewisburg were booked up over a long weekend. It was about a 30 minute drive from the Greenbrier Airport. My room was clean and appeared to be recently renovated. The bed was comfortable, water pressure good in the shower and ac was working well. The only downside was the... More
