5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Clean rooms, very friendly employees, nice and clean pool. good breakfast especially the sausage gravy on the weekends. The rooms are nice and big. Everyone was so helpful in meeting our needs. The view from the top of the hill is beautiful.

Fair hotel. It's very old and needs updating. If keeping the old theme, make it a bed and breakfast motif.

My sister and I were driving from Nashville back to NYC, and we needed a quick place to get some sleep before continuing the drive. After picking up a hotel coupon book at the Virginia welcome center we found this place which turned out to be great. We arrived pretty late but the guy was very accomodating, and the room was nice and comfortable. The hotel is pretty old and has a real early 80's look to it, but it's actually kind of neat. It reminds me of hotels I stayed in as a kid, with the older furniture and lights, and old style tiles on the bathroom floor, etc. But the whole place is very clean which is most important, so I don't mind the older look to the place, I actually like the retro quality of it. And the hotel is set up nicely too, with a nice sized lobby, wide hallways, etc. My only complaint, and it's minor, is that the A/C unit had a musty smell to it. It probably has to be cleaned and the filter changed, but it was a minor issue. The hotel is well worth stopping into if you're on I81 and need a place to stay...

Haven't stayed at a Howard Johnson Inn in about 100 years but this place was really good, clean room, comfy bed, nice staff. Paid bargain of $72/night here versus the $129/night at Quality Inn next door where we had to stay upon returning to the area on drive home because HJI was sold out. The QI was so dirty and gross; however, staff was nice and breakfast ok. Also pet fee at HJI was $12/pet versus QI's $45. Next time, it will be HJI going AND returning.

Good front desk staff. Good price with coupon. Rooms are larger than most average hotels. Bathroom was very clean and nice. Beds were extremely comfortable. I have stayed at this hotel several times all very good experiences

An older hotel, but has been updated nicely. We stayed on the second floor and had a nice view of the mountains. The included breakfast was good and included waffles, eggs, biscuits and sausage gravy. They allow pets, a convenience for us. The bed was comfortable. My only complaint--I wanted to work on my computer and there was no outlet by the table. I had to work off the night stand. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a mountain view. They are on the even numbered side.
