This road weary traveler was very satisfied with the accommodations. The manager accommodated my request of a late arrival and cooling the room for me before my arrival. That goes a long way in this Choice Privileges platinum member's eyes. They are renovating and the rooms are getting there. Some parts are rough around the edges but the ac was... More

It's a nice family run place (cute baby) affordable, clean rooms, comfy beds. No weird smells like the last place we stayed. Easy on/off interstate. Kids enjoyed the breakfast pastries. Just what we needed on our family road trip. Would stop here again.

This is a place where pride of ownership is showing. The new owner is redoing the entire place and his efforts are paying off. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The best are as good as any Marriott or Hampton Inn. They are all new and very comfortable. Big flat screen TV, small but adequate breakfast buffet. Room 255 is... More

We needed a place to stay for one night on our way home from vacation. We decided to stop here. The manager was wonderful. Was very polite, and helpful. There was not any non smoking rooms left, but he said that they try to not use some smoking rooms for that reason. The room was slightly rough but clean and... More

This is a nice, clean, comfortable place to stay when in Roanoke for business or pleasure. They are a pet friendly place that charges a nominal fee for pets. Many other places in the area that accepts pets are much more pricey. The manager was friendly and helpful. The only downside was the continental breakfast. I was hoping for some... More

The owner/manager was extremely friendly and helpful. Hotel itself features great WiFi speed, recently refurbished rooms, and a very convenient location at a much more reasonable price than other Roanoke establishments. My stay here was easily on the level of a mid-range hotel experience, much better than expected from a motel right off the highway.

Just looking for a quick midpoint stay on a trip south. The manager was very nice and helpful with information on places to go for dinner. This was a typical motor lodge. The rooms were adequate and clean.

We were on our way to Florida and looking for an affordable place for one night. This place was excellent for the money Although the building was dated, the room was clean and updated. The front desk person was friendly and helpful. Would stay here again!

Don't judge from the looks of the place, it's awesome inside! The staff is great, the receptionist was very friendly, and the room was perfect. I got a 1 bed king smoking room for 1 night and it was too good for the price. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for 1-7 night stays. The only issue is... More
