As my daughter and I were just driving past on our way home from Florida, we booked this hotel online, just for its location. Its a very basic hotel, old. Its at the very south end of the town, but there's not much to Summersville. There are a couple of restauants, some basic shopping, but at least there was a... More

Not a Holiday Inn Express by any means, but a nice place at a reasonable price, with all the usual things, including a large room with a COUCH to sit on while watching TV. Dairy Queen next door for quick snacks.

We stayed 1 night here as we wanted to check out the New River Gorge Bridge & area on our way home from a long road trip. It aint' the Plaza, that's for sure, but for a rack rate of about $70, what do you expect? It was clean enough and comfy enough for a night. Service friendly and efficient.... More

Recently spent the night at this hotel en route back to Canada. The check in staff person " Dawn" was extremely helpful and cheery. This was a welcomed bonus, as when we booked the room via cell phone and in the car, the gentleman on the phone could hardly speak english and thus combined with traffic noise was frustrating.

As soon as I entered my room, the power was interrupted due to a storm. However, the desk clerk was very helpful to all guests.

furniture and beddings are a bit worn but very clean. comfortable bed and quite night though located roadside. Above average breakfast compared with others in the same price range. A good value! Recommend to those who head to outdoor trips in WV, such as whitewater rafting.

This hotel is badly in need of renovations. It appeared to be fairly clean and the staff was friendly and accommodating. All room furnishings are old and very dated.

We stayed here on our way to Pittsburgh. For location, it is right off of 19, so it is easy to get to. The bed was quite comfortable. The downside was that the room itself was a little drab. It seems they tried to do some remodeling and painting, the smell was still in the room, but it was not... More

Children loved continental breakfast complete with instant pancake machine that magically makes fresh pancakes at the press of a button. Also had yogurt, juice, coffee, cereal, and biscuits and gravy. Quite yummy. Very nice night desk clerk, and convenient location on main travel route.

We liked it there a lot. The room had been updated, was super clean and had what we needed. Just so you know.....The complimentary breakfast was not great so we ate in town at the Schony's. The room was not quiet...someone who was up till midnight and up again at five a.m. was next to us....who knew that would happen??.... More
