We stay there often on New Year's Eve and when attending concerts. It is safer then driving home to Smith Mountain Lake on a late night or when partying. Everything has or is being remodeled to better serve guests. The couple that runs it are very nice, friendly, and accommodating. The breakfast buffet is just enough to get you going... More

We only spent a night over there during our road trip We were warmly greeted by the manager and his family, they were of Indian ethnic. The reception did have the familiar Indian kitchen scent as some other readers have pointed out, but the room we stayed in was free of that smell. The room was of good quality and... More

Ok so this isn't a 5 star hotel, I think the name gives it away. However, I arrived quite late at night for check and the staff offered my partner and I some of their dinner. This was so nice of them and had I not been so tired I probably would have accepted. The rooms are a little dated... More

I'm a college student who stayed for one night before an early flight out of Roanoke. I walked a couple miles from where the bus dropped me off, arriving tired late at night with a couple of bags on my back and sweaty clothes. Despite my situation, I was helped with my room respectfully and enthusiastically. He further explained to... More

This hotel is one of the most disgusting experiences I've ever had. As soon as I walked into the lobby it smelled like an Indian kitchen. The same was for the room. I understand it is a pet friendly place but the carpets looked like all Roanoke's dogs lined up just to use it as a potty. I have the... More

I was passing through the Roanoke area and needed an affordable place to stay for the night. I ended up paying $57 and some change for a double queen bed room that included free parking and a complimentary breakfast. Considering the price, this place was decent. It was clean and cheap. The manager was really nice and accommodating. There were... More

I'd driven from NYC and was pretty tired when I checked in. The guy behind the counter was incredibly helpful in finding me a liquor store (I needed a drink after 7 hours on the road!) He even went on line to find the hours and location and a Wendy's so I could eat dinner. The room was very clean... More

Our budget criteria was a clean safe room, secure parking and a good bed. From the outside the lodge looked a bit sketchy. However, the establishment exceeded all our expectations and offered some unexpected pleasant surprises. The room was large and recently refurbished. Comfortable mattresses and bedding, nice flat panel, satellite TV, fast internet, microwave, coffeemaker and fridge. Bit of... More
