My boyfriend and I took a weekend trip to Roanoke, and as we always enjoy supporting local businesses when possible, this was a perfect fit for our budget and our style. Still owned by the same family, let me tell you...the price is right! The rooms are large (built in the 50's), and quiet (rumor has it the owners also built the entire property out of cinder block), and the "mid century modern" look makes you feel like you've stepped back in time when life was simpler. The location is a straight shot in under 10 minutes to drive downtown or to Granlin Village (or a $8 cab ride if you prefer). Downtown Roanoke if you're just hanging out isn't exactly THE place to stay. When we stay in certain cities, downtown hotels are where its at, but for the hiking and biking we did in Roanoke (and spread out "cool parts" of town), this is a great location. The amenities are bare-boned (bring your own shampoos and lotions), but for the price, this is clean, safe, and friendly. Ed at the front desk helped me out the first night by offering to call a cab if needed AND printed a map to downtown if we chose to drive. On the second night, I asked for a couple extra pillows (yes, theirs are a bit..."flat"). He arrived at our door with FIVE pillows for us to stack...what a guy! Trust me, for the $60 or under you can pay a night here...you would NOT want to stay anywhere else!
