My Mother-In-Law was in the hospital so we decided to stay in Charleston, WV. We had stayed at another hotel there before and were pleased with it. Right beside it was another hotel, the Charleston Capitol Hotel, that was $20.00 a night less. Since we would only be there to sleep, we decided to try it. We had a king... More

The location is wonderful. It's right off the interstate (I-64), located on a stop of a major bus line and is within walking distance of downtown shops and restaurants. If you care about decor and want your hotel to have all new stuff, then do not stay here. However, if you just want a clean room, a workout facility, free... More

We stayed here in the early summer of 2015 while attending a Beach Boys Concert and was extremely pleased! It was a great price and an excellent value. The staff at the check in counter was very efficient, helpful, and extremely hospitable. Plus, they served delicious afternoon cookies. Our room had a microwave, frig and free wifi. The nice sized...

This is an older property, we were told it will soon be closing for needed renovations. The location is excellent, within walking distance of the capitol, downtown and many restaurants. Our room was comfortable and quiet (downtown is dead at night).

The bathroom wasn't very clean, there was hair everywhere! .. staff was friendly at night but come morning, they were preoccupied talking to friends. Not professional. Smokers in a non smoking building.. the breakfast in the morning was decent.

Extremely disappointed, we travel a lot, staying in hotels 60+ nights a year and hands down the softest, most uncomfortable beds we've ever experienced and the towels were old, worn & gray. The pictures look great online but most of the upholstered furniture is worn and/or filthy.
