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.

Stayed here for a softball game, I thought it was very nice. Contact the office if you're going to check in past 10pm because that's when they close, they can make arrangements for your key. The rooms were large for only $57, front and back doors! Pretty balcony. Nice little country restaurant called the Fireside Cafe with a little craft... More

Good stop when motorcycling through WV on a budget. In can be busy on the weekends during summer season so you may want to make a reservation during peak travel times. Family style eating / breakfast right next door.

We found this motel after traveling for awhile and not finding any town to stay in. It turned out to be a reminder of the motels we stayed in growing up in the 60's. Nothing fancy but clean and priced right. The management was extremely helpful and friendly. Very easy to get right back on the main road to get... More

My wife and I happened across Thompson's while doing some leaf-peeping in the WV mountains. We arrived at 8:30 at night, dog tired. The lady in the office was very pleasant when I checked in. I asked if there was a microwave in the room, since we had brought along a cooler of frozen dinners to eat. She said no,... More

The Thompson Hotel, is a good stay for the money, it's in a very pretty setting, the room was clean other than the carpet, but to be fair, many trout fisherman stay there & do not remove their waders before going in, but the rest of the room was clean. We loved sitting on the veranda. There is a excellent... More

This is the best motel in this small, hid-away nice town. NOTHING fancy, but reasonable price ($49-$59 off season), all 1st floor, large rooms. Generally very clean, especially the bathroom, but the room carpet needs GOOD cleaning / replacement, as does the chair cushions. The beds are clean, but much to hard for us. Front desk service is "functional" but... More

I knew I was in trouble when I walked into my room and there was a refrigerator-size dehumidifier running at full speed. It ran on high all night! The room reeked of mold and mildew. The rug was absolutely filthy, slept with my shoes on. Not even an entry mat or rug to wipe your feet on when you enter... More

I stayed here with my wife and my sister and brother-in-law while we attended the Highland Maple Festival. Located one county to the north, the route we took to Monterey led us past a pancake breakfast and two maple sugar farms Negatives: The towels provided were rough, the rooms' utility faceplates and switches could use a thorough cleaning and the...

We were looking for an inexpensive place to stay while visiting Spruce Knob and the Mountain Institute to do some star imaging. This motel was conveniently located about 30 minutes from those locations. Although the motel is old, the room was clean, and the carpet freshly vacumed. Check-in was smooth, the desk staff courteous. There were no towel racks in... More
