Had a function in Blacksburg, Va. & it was very convenient to stay in Narrows. Great area. Loved the history of MacArthur Inn. Great customer service. Don't recommend breakfast. Make sure room has bathroom, as some rooms use bathroom down the hall......not me!

We stayed here about 6 years ago while on a family reunion in the park on Wolf Creek. This was like a bed and breakfast and the rooms were roomy and old style bedrooms. The rooms were clean and the bath room had an old claw foot tub that my wife wanted to bring back home. The rates were reasonable... More

very wonderfully restored in a country setting at the juncture of the wolf creek and new river and at the intersection of the Appalachian Trail and the Great Eastern trail. Meals in the evening were quite a surprise to the whole group and very nicely presented.

While the gentleman that answered the phone was pleasant and informative, he really stretched the truth. When we arrived the parking lot should have been our first clue as to the quality of the Inn. We went into our room and discovered bugs in the bathroom, a leaky toilet and shower. The ceiling above the bed was falling down, the... More

Three of my sisters and their family gathered at the Inn for 3 nights for VT's graduation. Each of our rooms were different. One that was in desperate need of a bathroom update (shower not functioning, no electrical plugs), one that needed vacuuming at check in and one that was newly renovated and perfect. There was no room service, but... More

The staff was friendly and helpful. The room I stayed in had the smoke detector disconnected and no soap. The bathroom ceiling had leaked and the plaster was hanging down. There were no cups and the bed cover was very worn and frayed. The Inn at one time was probably a real gem but time has passed it by. It... More

We stayed two nights and it was not good. There were bugs all in one of our beds (we had a suite, which was two adjoined rooms with a bathroom). The next morning, the owner was making breakfast and came out with food on his hands to change the TV and went right back to cooking. The most horrible was... More

Lots of potential but not up to the website's description. The place is NOT fully restored at least not recently nor was there a breakfast. Our bathroom had a pump hanging by the wires plugged in over the sink to supply water to other rooms which looked like it had been there for a while. Had to ask for cups,... More

Staying at the Macarthur Inn is a memorable and lovely experience. In terms of amenities, this is not a luxury hotel (at least not yet) and you have to consider what you are getting for the money. The rooms are clean and the price is definitely right. But the environment and the friendliness of the proprietor, Allen Neeley, exceeded all... More
