“Good, inexpensive place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

Stayed here one night while driving the Blue Ridge Parkway. A little ways into town, but not too bad of a drive. I will echo the previous comment about GPS not finding the exact location, but a little common sense is all you need. The only thing keeping this from being a 5 star review is that both the blanket on the bed and the spare in the closet were both covered in hair-either weren't washed properly, or housekeeping is doing some major shedding. The front desk was very friendly when I asked for an extra blanket, but provided a much smaller one that didn't cover the bed.

I would still recommend this hotel, but would advise anyone staying here to check the blankets and sheets carefullly before climbing into bed.

Stayed in10 hotels whilst on holiday from UK. The front desk receptionist, Curtis, was one of the nicest staff members we met on our travels. Welcoming, friendly and helpful. Hotel was reasonably priced and clean. Booked for 1 night but following day, booked in for an additional night.

Stayed September 2012, traveled solo

Curtis,the front desk staff member was very friendly and helpful. She was a joy to see at the front desk. Ralph,the shuttle bus driver was friendly,and a excellent host. These two people were very professional. They made a bad day good. Bonnie-front desk staff was a pill to swallow. I received a call from her,regarding my room. She informed me that I did not need a room for 5 people and was changing my room. She informed me that the room I had booked was not the syste rate and she needed the rooms. I informed her that the rate on line for these rooms was for the syste rate. I had no problem exchanging the rooms if needed;however Bonnie did not approach the situation in a professional manner. Hotel need to change the menu for breakfast and update the room decor. Hotel was clean.

Ralph, shuttle bus driver was an excellent host; friendly, professional and fun. Curtis-front desk staff member was extremely hepful and pleasant, was a joy to have at the front desk. Bonnie-front desk staff person-initially was rude to my co-worker-rooms had been booked on line and she told my co-worker that we did not need them and they were not at the state rate. We booked the initial rooms on line at the state rate; however, did not have a problem with exchanging them if they were needed by a larger party; however Bonnie did not approach the situation in a professional manner. Hotel needs to be upgraded in terms of room decor; however, was clean.

This extended stay hotel has potential, but needs to get with the times. No wi-fi. Really??? Decor is a somewhat tired burgundy, forest green, floral and plaid sprinkled with the inevitable child-in-straw-bonnet-in-flowery-field prints. Ask for room on opposite side from interstate -- the windows aren't all that soundproofed. I did appreciate the room layout, with functional kitchen, table big enough to work at or have a small meeting, separate living area and bedroom. They really need to update, though.

Nice place to stay but poor customer service. Full kitchen, nice seating area. We arrived around midnight because of a late flight so couldn't get up for the breakfast. Would of been nice if breakfast was served a little longer.

The employees were not very helpful or nice. When we checked in the clerk was very abrupt. I walked up and gave the clerk my name and his response was "one". One what? One night? One person?

The next morning a new clerk was not very helpful. We asked about a ride to the airport. After we called a cab we walked out and found out that they have a van that said "Airport Shuttle" on the side. They never told us that;
