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.

The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. This property is a well maintained family run establishment. Our experience was nothing but positive from reservation to checkout. They have the added advantage of being the most reasonably priced. We would highly recommend if looking for accommodations in this area.

A colleague and I stayed here for a few nights whilst we were working in the area and we loved it! This isn't a 1950s themed motel - it just hasn't changed in fifty years. And I mean in a good way! For any fan of retro vintage this motel is a real treat. Fabulous decor aside, the rooms were... More

In beautiful Romney WV the Koolwink Motel is a real throwback to the age of fantastic, well run family motels. Everything was positive. The booking process, the gentleman at the front desk, the advice on local attractions and especially the size and cleanliness of the room. My wife, who is very picky about the cleanliness of hotel rooms was blown... More

My wife and I stayed the Koolwink Motel based on reviews by my fellow TripAdvisor Contributors. Well, it is all you said it was, and most enjoyable. Nothing fancy, but simple can sometimes be better. Nice stream running behind the motel, just to add a little extra atmosphere, no extra charge. The room price is extremely hard to beat. The... More
