I didn't get to stay here because my travel plans changed last minute. I am giving this place a great review though because they were very understanding and only charged me a minimal ($15) fee instead of a full nights stay for cancelling last minute. Most places aren't nice anymore like that so I think it's worth mentioning......

This is truly "no frills". It is good for a quick overnight stop to shower and sleep. Sheets and bathroom were clean. Older, outdated furniture and carpet. We felt safe. Older hard key entry. Not a full service 24 hr office. Do not expect amenities. For $50 it's a bargain stop on a trip. We found the office staff to... More

Stayed here twice enroute to the OBX of North Carolina, first night of the trip, and last night of the trip. First stay was in room 16, which was very clean and comfortable, but with an ill-fitting door that required slamming in order to close. The bathroom was especially nice for an old-style motel, with updated hardware and even had... More

I called the Budget Host Inn in Charleston, WV to make sure if I made a reservation online my daughter and friend could stay there that night. They were travelling and needed to rest and give their car a rest. I wanted to pay for the stay with my credit card, and when I asked the Indian sounding man if... More

I stayed here because of the low price and fairly decent reviews. Big mistake. There were ants all over the room and even on my pillow. There was a gap under the window with no carpeting which might be where they were coming from. Even though there were four of us in a double room, there were only two sets... More

I was pleasantly surprised at every turn about this little motel. Pete was very nice and so helpful! And the motel office had such a wonderful fragrance! My room faced the river which eliminated most traffic sounds. They have a lovely little porch that overlooks the river where you can sit and meditate. The room was very clean and the... More

Average priced and very small motel. Location somewhat outside of Charleston, but close to I 77 and overlooks a river. No frills, room was small and could use an update, but it was very clean. Great place for a one night stay.

Very friendly and nice staff. It was a wonderful price for the room, and had a beautiful look over the river. It was a good distance away from Charleston, and the room was clean and had everything we needed. We would stay again!
