Older motel, very quiet, very clean and exceptionally nice personnel. We stayed one night here on a short weekend drive. I had booked with information from Trip Advisor. It is as represented by most comments on here. Only $52 on a Saturday for two. The restaurant adjacent was good for breakfast. The desk lady said they had wi-fi but I... More

I came to this hotel because it had cheap rooms (40.00). So I didn't expect a lot, primarily since the reviews were not that great. They first tried to put me in a room by the highway (state) but I asked if there were any rooms at the same price further away. They allowed me to look at a number... More

Stayed in room 46. Room needed aired. Had a closed up old smell. TV didn't work. Air conditioner was loud. Bed sheets were very clean and new. Room carpeting was stained and rough looking. Bathroom was very clean. I've stayed in $200.00 rooms that didn't have as clean restroom. All in all.....quaint and the price is very affordable. The dining... More

After a long drive through Virginia, we stopped at this motel in the middle of nowhere. During the evening it looked a bit shabby from the outside so we were a bit sceptical. The lady at the front desk gave us a warm welcome so we took a room. The room was on the 2nd floor, and the space was... More

I've stayed here 3 times--2007, 2011 and Memorial Day weekend 2015. It's an old 1960ish motel and it looks it. BUT the bed was very comfortable, the TV worked and the shower worked. The tub was flaking some of the enamel but that didn't affect the shower. It has plenty of character and I would stay here again. I think... More

This motel is a disgusting run down filth hole.we are not prissy people. I am not sure what the other reviewers seen when they were here.this place is very old, thats not the issue. The sheets towels and bed spread are rags and probably 30 years old. They are ripped and worn out. The shower curtain was moldy. The air... More

I came through there around 9 at night and she gave me a choice of two rooms, one had a soft bed and the other had a bed that was a lot more comfortable. The tv was a round screen whirt a remote that would work the volume and up and down channels. The heater did not work to well... More

Although I never saw it advertised, they do have free wi-fi! The rooms are right out of the 50's, very dated, however it was clean and I had nice hot water! Room rates were about 55/ night. Many of the rooms have a little patio or balcony. I was happy with my choice! They still have old fashioned metal keys

Good place to stop since there really isn't much else in this town to stay in. Clean rooms and friendly country staff. The bed was comfy so that was the most important thing, needs a little updating. There is a restaurant right in front that has a little bit of everything on the menu.
