Great front desk service, Mattresses firm and new. Room very clean. Simple continental breakfast. A nice bungalow type setting so there is parking right outside your door. Solid so you can't hear noise from other rooms.

Lodging is okay, bit outdated but clean. Wanted a other more quiet room which was no problem. They have a connection with a Italian restaurant where you get 15% off. So far so good. 08:00 breakfast, nothing, nada. Coffee thee yoghurt and some dried out pastry. No bread. No jam. No eggs. The lady at the front desk: I don't... More

Little motel right in the middle of town, convenient to everything. Great stay for the wine festival. Room was large, but we encountered some ants in the bed and bathroom, which was a little disheartening. Room looked and smelled clean, however, and was stocked with the essentials. Breakfast only consisted of pastries and juice when we entered the breakfast room,... More

Lake Inn, an interesting motel alongside a major highway. We were in the Moneta, VA., area on business and ended up in this nice motel. I suspect the motel was of the 1950 vintage and was arranged in a large L shape configuration with the office near the highway. The front desk lady was very kind and helpful and when... More

Overall it served our purpose. TV was outdated but no big deal. My biggest complaint would be that the sound and noise travels through walls. Doors slam and you hear it. I would defiantly bring ear plugs or get a room in a quit location of the inn if possible. Room was clean, bed was comfortable , bathroom nice. If... More

This place is very outdated. They are centrally located. They are the only hotel in the area. Half the lights don't work. There are not enough plugs. The bathroom fan sounds like a jet plane and is horribly loud. Decorated very 90's. Parking lot is horrible.

This hotel served well for our purposes. It's an older hotel but it was clean and quiet. The beds were a little hard and there weren't blankets on the bed but just sheets and a bedspread. The staff was nice and responded to our needs. The food served in the restaurant behind the hotel was very good. It was a... More

Spent a night while visiting family at Smith Mt Lake. Simple accommodations that were clean and quiet enough. Obviously an older motel but owners take pride in it. Appears to be the best (and only?) in the area.

For only $55 (the lowest I have ever paid for a hotel room), it was very nice. Clean, quiet, simple. No complaints. A wonderful authentic Italian restaurant next door with children buffets for only $4. No wifi though. That was odd.
