We called late at night the night clerk asked where we were. Gave us very good directions how to get there. She was very nice and helpful. We were there to go on a railroad trip the next day. The room was good. Had all we needed for that night and the next morning. I told the owners the next... More

They were out of pillows, so I had to drive to a walmart and buy 2. The rooms are old and the beds are hard. The mattress actually had holes in it (not too sanitary). I asked to speak with the manager because I wanted the cost of the pillows deducted from my bill. The night time and daytime desk... More

We stayed here one weekend night during a trip to the Appalachian Mountains. We knew that it was an older place but only cared that it was clean. It was actually very clean in the room and office where breakfast was served, we didn't go to the pool. It had a refrigerator (very cold) and microwave as well in the... More

The staff was very friendly and the price was appropriate for the facility. The room was clean, but sure smelled like smoke for a non smoking room. Also in need of an update. The continental breakfast was poor, not very good coffee and cellophane wrapped pastries or bagels to toast. No coffee maker in the room either. There is an... More

I work out of town and sleep in a lot of hotel...this one wasn't to shabby. The little lady behind the counter was very nice and very accommodating due to no rooms being available she made one open for a few hrs of sleep. I would go back and stay there again. Thanks for the good stay. The only issue... More

Been in dozens just like this, but usually they were more expensive. Staff friendly and helpful with suggestions about someplace for dinner. Clean, quiet, pet friendly, adequate. No frills. Breakfast less than average; went to the McDonalds down the street. Interestingly, they offer a further discount for veterans. That gives them high marks. And yes, they do offer smoking rooms,...

I booked this place looking for a no frills motel to stay with my family of 3 while visiting friends in Elkins and touring the surrounding area. I am not a princess and I didn't expect too much. The room is clean and the beds are surprisingly comfortable (firm, which I like and decent pillows). It really ends there. The... More
