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

Hospitality, history and a great breakfast, all in Narrows Virginia. I was hiking the App Trail and came off at Pearisburg to replenish and of course eat, shower and sleep. Finding all of the hotels in Pearisburg full due to an ongoing maintenance outage at a local plant I let google maps take me to the alternatives. The gentleman on... More

Stayed there several times, love it.... Allen Neely goes out of his way to please his guest... The people who wrote bad reviews are use to motel 6. This is a Country Inn, with very friendly, hospitable country folk who will take good care of you....

Our group of 3 couples was in the excursion area ringing in the 2013 New Year and we had the best time! Mr. Neeley was wonderfully friendly and helpful throughout our 3 night stay. He, along with housekeeping staff, asked multiple times what, if anything, we needed each day. We enjoyed breakfast at Blue Moon twice and ate phenomenally good... More

After reading the positive reviews on trip advisor we decided to stay at the MacArthur Inn after our trip to the New River Gorge. We were excited to stay at the historic inn and to visit thr nearby cascades the following day. The room was lacking in simple amenities such as kleenex, usable pillows(they were flat as a pancake), cups... More

We had to make a last minute trip because of a family emergency. Almost stayed 20 minutes away but saw a review that caught my eye for here. Thank goodness. This is a gem with character! We won't stay anywhere else. In fact we'll be back this weekend!

A great property with fascinating history and down-home hospitality. Allen Neely is a terrific host, and Patty and the staff are wonderful. Make sure you head across the street to the Blue Moon Cafe for the "Man Biscuit" and some exceptional coffee.
