“Clean and Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We wanted a weekend away with our dogs and this place was perfect. It was clean and affordable, especially with three dogs, and Tina was great. We would definitely go back! Thanks for making dog travel so worry free.

We came down to go white water rafting at Precision Rafting. This Motel is within walking distance to it and cost was around $80. some main things i look for are clean sheets, pillows, beds, floors and towels. It provided all these things. For the cost it is a nice place to stay. I would stay here again overnight.

We called the Yough Valley Motel in desperate need of a clean place to sleep after a local home we had rented turned out to be filthy. Tina was sympathetic to our situation and told us to come right over and they would take care of us. She graciously allowed us to view the rooms to put our minds at ease knowing the rooms would be clean for the kids. Tina provided a ton of information on things to do and economical places to find a good meal. Her kindness toward us lightened our mood and ensured we had a wonderful time. If you are looking for a clean, comfortable and economical place to stay with a kind, friendly and generous owner, this is the place for you. We don't encounter these things enough these days. Thank you Tina, we will definitely be back!

Hello Heather, I'm so glad I was able to help save your vacation. I always try to treat people the way I'd like to be treated, funny I was raised that way. It's always so nice to have someone appreciate the effort and then help spread the word. Thank you and I hope to see you soon. Tina

We were to attend a family reunion in the area, and could not find local accomodations that was "Pet" friendly so that my Daughter's dog could stay with us. My Daughter happened across the "Yough Valley Motel" and we made a reservation. The price was economical. We had clean, quiet, comfortable accomodations and the dog was also welcome and happy. We came in from 17 hours on the road and the people in the town were so nice and assisted us in getting a meal and some well needed rest before the reunion the next day. We highly recommend this location for your next vacation stop.

we loved the porch and the room was clean enough.no bugs.best part was we could have our dog.was the only reason we stayed.lots of privacy.like the feel of the night.however; bed was crappola hard .and shower was out of hand concerning temperature control. people are nice but they wonder why kayakers only use freindsville as a take out for the river and they eat and motel elswhere? well here is why; Freindsville and motels like this one are older and less classy looking as well as the bed and shower. food? scared to eat it.that is; if they are awake and working at 6 or 7 am. frendsville sleeps in...freindsville needs to realize that kayakers and mountain bikers sleep on $3000 memory foam beds, and have showers with consistant temperature and flow. like us from chicagoland we have the best food in the world.so excellence is not an option with us. we reject and avoid the mediocrote and poverty of Freindsville. deep creek on the other hand is excellent. freindsville needs hospitality and prosperity lessons from deep creek.i do feel sorry for friendsville.they are nice. but they are stuck as i know this motel cant aforrd 20 grand worth of new beds and plumbing.never the less freinds villes potential customers have money which means freindsville needs to up its standards to attract business.,,after all my dog eli checked into nemicolin pet resort and as treated like a king for $25.....

Room Tip: book somewhere in deep creek or 7 springs well in advance...

When we were looking for a place to stay for our weekend trip to Western, MD, we noticed that many places don't allow dogs, and those that do were pricey. This one was different. They welcomed us with our dogs, and was within our price range. The rooms were clean, and had everything we needed. Plus, after a long day of driving and hiking in the area, it was nice to be able to walk to the Sugar Shack to grab a bite to eat.
