This place is the bees knees. It's a time warp where the rooms have actual keys. Although dated, all furnishings are clean and comfortable. In fact, it's probably the cleanest hotel I've stayed in. The rooms are exceptionally large and had modern flat screen televisions with the local cable. Bathrooms were spotless with abundant hot water with good pressure. The... More

The rooms at the Koolwink may seem a bit dated but I think it's more in a classy sort of way. I've stayed there now three times over the past several years and on each occasion my room has been pristine. Also, I appreciate it when motel/hotel rooms I stay at have a bottle opener installed in the bathroom or... More

No rest at all!!!!This ,as sad I am to say would not be a place I would revisit.Even though the room was so clean, it was just too loud and uncomfortable to... More

We enjoyed our two-night stay at the Koolwink. This is a no-frills and inexpensive motel; however, our room was spacious, warm, and very clean. The beds were very comfortable too. Our room was up on the hill away from Route 50 (less noisy). There are no hair dryers in the rooms so be sure to bring your hair dryer, no... More

This is the cleanest place I have ever been to! The rooms are a wonderful mix of throw-back to the 60s, 70s, and 80s. The beds are comfy; great TV reception; mini fridge and microwave; great size room! Folks are all nice who work there! We stayed there for many weekends over a period of about 7 years while building... More

Spent 2 nights in mid October while attending a recreational retreat on Short Mountain hunting for the elusive squirrel. We had a successful hunt and a great stay at the Koolwink. The room was spotless. My hunting buds and I can't say enough about the Koolwink and we are already planning next year's trip. If you're looking for a place... More

Thanks Tripadvisor reviewers. We would never have stayed in a motel but the Tripadvisor reviews were excellent so we booked 2 nights for our trip on the Potomac Eagle Railway. Great location, and the motel is as described elsewhere - clean, well maintained and in good repair. The bathroom was spotlessly clean, and everywhere else was pretty good and clean.... More

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.
