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

As other reviewers have said this place is a blast from the past. It is mid century modern flavor and everything is in pristine condition. You think it must have been just sealed up for about 50 years. Rooms are spacious and have the usual microwave, frige, and coffee pot. They offer a DVD player and selected movies if you... More

I felt like we were at the opening of the Koolwink in the 1950's...an early motel, well-maintained and clean from day one. This is a national treasure in my humble opinion and I hope it never changes (though some new over-stuffed mattresses might make us a little more comfy on the next visit!). More modern amenities include WIFI and cell... More

Koolwink will be a memorable place for me. The nostalgic feeling of the 70's that never left was so awesome. Rooms were extremely clean, staffing was unbelievable nice. This will be the place I stay at again when visiting my family in Romeney. The one and only downfall I had was the mattress was a little to hard for my... More

The Koolwink is by far the most memorable place to stay in Romney. As soon as you pull up to the main office, you will feel like you have traveled a few decades back in time. The owner is extremely friendly, and loves to strike up a casual chit chat while you check in. There is a very small, but... More

My husband and I have driven past this place several times visiting friends, and thought we'd call in and see if they had a room for the weekend. It's so cute! It's like that 70's show meets Mary Tyler Moore. My only complaint was one of the beds sloped funny. It's a great place to stay on a stop over.... More

Nice spacious clean rooms, decor is very 1970's to the point where you have to laugh, Right in Romney WV... found these rooms to be a rather nice, comfortable place to stay. I believe this is 1of only 2 hotels in romney.
