“Clean, safe, but outdated room interior and expensive pet fee.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

Stayed in Room 119. Room and linens were clean. Furnishings pretty outdated (entire wall behind two double beds was mirrored). No lamps, lighting was overhead fluorescent panels. Room rate of $65 very reasonable, but $50 addt'l fee for pet outrageous. Nicer hotels charge $25 max. And, yes, breakfast was meager - mini muffins, white bread, juice, and coffee.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

It's hard to find an entirely non-smoking hotel in Bristol, VA. That being said, let me mention that with all of the other choices available for smokers, we still had someone smoking in the room above us on our first night there. The odor wafted down into our room, and I had extreme difficulty breathing. On the second night, the place was nearly empty, and as a result, no smoke smell at all.
Of course the hotel cannot be responsible for the rudeness of the guests. I did mention the smell to one of the attendants, but it was obvious that no action was taken.
Our room was clean. Our view was of the mulch in the garden center adjacent to the hotel. But we were there primarily to sleep.
Breakfast was extremely disappointing. You could have a bagel or packaged oatmeal, but no fruit and I had to get an attendant to scare up some tea bags for tea. Let's just say that the breakfast was slim pickings.
We were told that we got a 10% discount at Perkins Pancake's which is also adjacent to the hotel. We never used it, but the restaurant is open 24 hours.
We were given a great room rate, but that was quickly offset by the $50.00 pet fee. We had one small dog with us. We felt lucky enough to find a Non-smoking room that permitted pets. However, there really isn't any place for the pet to relieve himself outside, as everything is stone or gravel. No green areas or trees around. So be warned.
