I was so excited about staying at Hotel Roanoke because I had heard such good things. I was a little disappointed. The room was exceptionally small and mediocre at best. I realize this is a old hotel but felt a facelift for our room was definitely needed. I also was not overwhlemed by the cleaniness. We made reservations early and paid top dollar for a not so top dollar room. The room was no where close to the description that friends had given. I understand that you can request an upgrade for a nicer room but was not aware of that at the time. So if your choice is to stay there be sure to inquire but as for me, I will most likely not be staying there again. However, the Sunday Brunch did help to improve my attitude. It is wonderful.
