The rooms have really old furniture, the A/C and heat work ok but not great, prices are more reasonable than the other local motel. The motel is right along RT 50 so the noise from trucks and other vehicles is bothersome. If you want a somewhat comfortable and lower priced motel this is the place.

Enjoyed another wonderful visit to the Koolwink last weekend, it makes me wish I had more reasons to visit this part of WV, but staying here is such an escape, I'd come here without one. I'm pleased to report that this treasure is as klean, kool, and wonderful as before. It just gets better with repeat visits. Nicely nestled into... More

I read the reviews before booking and I agree that Koolwink Motel is very retro, clean and quiet. Our room was in the back on the top level and was large and the park at your door was so convenient. There was a balcony with chairs to relax outside.

This is a classic motel but don't let the age fool you it is the cleanest place i think I've stayed and I'm the top level on all the chains hotels. Every single thing worked and was supplied. Perfect access to the room for elderly or handicapped folks.

My wife and I just returned from a "romantic" long weekend in West Virginia. With no particular destination in mind, I chose the Koolwink based on the recommendation of a travel blogger. We couldn't have wished for a better experience! I knew the place was supposed to be "retro" and had seen photos online, but nothing prepared me for the... More

Having stayed at many motels over the years the Koolwink is by far the cleanest one I have ever found. The owner and staff are very nice and very helpful. In fact everyone that we met in Romney were as nice as can be. And the South Branch Bluegrass Festival is one of the best we have been to. I... More

I had driven past the Koolwink many times before I got the opportunity to stay there. It was worth waiting for! The decor harkens back to the 1960s, but my room also had WiFi, a flat screen TV, and cable. The room and bathroom were among the cleanest that I've ever seen. Plus, the room rate was less than $75... More

I cannot say enough about this hotel. Wonderful staff, charming rooms and nice area. If you are a " germaphobe", like me, then you will be AMAZED by the cleanliness of this hotel. The sheets are even pressed! We have been patrons of the KOOLWINk for 8 years and have loved our stay, everytime.

Seldome do I give 5 stars. BUT This the most well maintained motel I've ever stayed in. The beds were comfortable. Could use a couple more pillows per bed. The shower was hot. The decor was amazing. Quiet location but only a short drive to town and the railroad. Good price too. And the front desk guy was efficient and... More
