“It's called budget for a reason.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

The rooms were fine for as old as the motel is. No bugs, I looked. The A/C worked well, even if loud for those not used to window units. The beds were comfortable and looked fairly new. This is not for those who are expecting the amenities of higher priced hotels at a cheap price. The rooms do not come with all the freebies the expensive chains give. I don't smoke, but had to stay in a smoking room as that was all that was available and it wasn't bad. The owner even offered air freshener if needed. No free breakfast, again, you get what you pay for. But the Pink Cadillac restaurant is in the same parking lot and it's good and inexpensive.

Room Tip: The wifi works best near the main office. I didn't have a problem at all with it.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

We booked this hotel online. We were traveling through and had no idea what we were getting into. This was a zero star experience in our book however, I had to put at least one star to post this comment this review. We did not feel the rooms were that clean. It looked like the faucets had not been cleaned since the last visitor. There was a very large spider crawling across the bathroom floor. We are headed to find a chiropractor after sleeping in that bed with that pillow. I have a shoulder that I cannot move and I am in pain. The price is not that cheap. Dinner at the pink Cadillac OMG don't ever go there. We will not bother to stop here again.

This was my first trip to the Natural Bridge, I found this motel, and checked the reviews on Tripadvisors. It's a small motel, but for the price you can't beat it. It's close to the Natural Bridge, and Lexington, and to some other attractions. The room is small and outdated, but it was very clean and the bed was so comfortable! It's not fancy, so if your looking for fancy, this is not for you. However, if your looking for a clean, cheap room, this is your place. It's right next to the Pink Cadillac Diner, which has awesome home cooked food for cheap. The staff was very friendly! I can't wait to go back.

We stayed here with our 91 year old aunt on her first trip to the USA. Staff were helpful, pleasant and accommodating. We used it as a stopover when travelling on Bkue ridge parkway. Good value. Generally unfair feedback from people who want to pay little and expect a lot. Our room was clean. It may he a bit dated like some customers. We would stay here again.

I've read all the reviews but still decided to stay here because it was cheap and very close to the Natural Bridge. Upon arriving we saw its remote but Walmart is only 10 mins away in Lexington and there's a cute good smelling diner right next door. My husband went in and asked to see the room the owner gladly have him the key and we inspected the room. Other than a few stains on the bathroom wall and being out of date it's perfectly fine. If you need up to date walls, bathroom and flat screen tv to stay in a hotel go elsewhere. If you want a comfy bed, a clean smelling room and just a nice simple place for a good price don't go anywhere else! And, trust me I've traveled all over being military wife and I've been to some seriously rundown places and when you see this place you judge it but it is clean and its cozy! All you need for a simple night or couple nights sleep.
