“Great Stay with Dog”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2012

This motel appears new. Our room had a king bed and a partially separated seating area with couch, microwave, small fridge, table with 2 chairs, great bathroom and room for our dog crate. The motel was exceptionally clean and seemed new. The bed was comfortable and the sheets didn't come undone. Halls and room entrances are indoors. There was room to eat, feed the dog and just relax. We are allergic to the perfumed cleaners and sprays used to make motel rooms seem "fresh" and we requested these not be used. This is the first motel that truly honored this request and the room was clean without perfume.

It is not located next to the interstate, but there is a Krogers supermarket next door and room to walk and run the dog. The free breakfast included egg and cheese "fold-overs", bacon, waffles, yogurt, etc.

This motel is excellent and made for a great overnight stop on our trip from Atlanta to NJ. My wife is very picky and had no negative comments - very unusual. We highly recommend this motel, which also has a pool and exercise room. Price was right, too.

I stay here each time I visited Roanoke. The service and value is undiminished. Rooms are spacious and clean with updated appointments. Plenty of recharging plug-ins! Wi- fi is great. Shower and bed very good. The location works well for my business needs but is a short drive from Roanoke. There is a small shopping center adjacent to the property. It has a Kroger and a Szechewan Restaurant. The staff has always been friendly and helpful and my rooms clean and comfortable. That's all I need.

We had a very nice stay while down south for a fall trip. The leaves wern't in full color yet. The breakfast was fabulous Spice flavored Belgin Waffles. Really smelled good,and tasted good too! Eggs & sausage and the regular items too. Really nice.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2011

We stayed at this hotel over the Labor Day weekend. We were in town to attend a 50th Wedding Anniversary party in Roanoke along with three other family groups. All four rooms had something wrong with them from no lights in the bathroom to air conditioning not working. When we reported the problems to the front desk, we were told that, "We don't have maintenance support over the weekend." No apologies, no offers to move us to different rooms. Tough luck for us.
All of the comments about inept, rude, uncaring staff members are right on! I have traveled extensively for many years for work and stayed in thousands of hotels and have never even come close to the poor, mean-spirited treatment we all received here. One evening, after the anniversary party, we were all tired and decided to get a few pizzas and meet in the common area where breakfast is served. As we visited and talked amongst ourselves, we were approached by the person manning the desk (There is never more than one and good luck trying to find them when you need them!) and told that we would be charged a $150 cleaning fee for using four of the tables to eat our pizza. We were told that the District Manager was at her home watching us on a webcam and had called the desk and instructed the rep to tell us that. We asked to speak with the DM and, to her credit, she actually came to the hotel. When we spoke with her she claimed to have no knowledge of what the desk agent was talking about. She did say that sports teams stay there a lot and leave pretty big messes so they sometimes do charge a cleaning fee. We are not a baseball team. Our group consisted of 2 Grandparents, 5 parents, and 4 kids. Quite a wild group isn't it?
When we explained the problems we were experiencing, the DM, Gabby, apologized and offered us a 50% discount on our rooms. She then advised that the discounts had been entered into the system and that we were "all set" for checkout in the morning. Of course, when we went to checkout, we were charged full price. The morning desk agent, Mike, advised that the information was in the system, but it had not been "finalized" and he could not give us the discount. Mike said that we should just checkout, paying the full price, and they would fix it later in the day, after we left, when the Desk Manager showed up. Not feeling very confident, I asked him to please call the Desk Manager as we would like the matter resolved before we left the hotel. Apparently Mike felt I was being unreasonable and called his manager, Amanda, who came to the hotel and began to verbally berate me and other members of my family. We had never even seen this woman before! I've never seen anyone act like that in my life. If she's not on meds, she probably should be!
At that point Amanda told us that she would be giving us a 15% discount, not a 50% discount. I guess 15% is what you get when there are no lights in your bathroom and you have to carry a lamp from the desk into the bathroom so you can shave and shower.
I could go on and on, but you get the idea by now. Honestly, heed the warnings on tripadvisor.com! Worst staff ever, the hot tub didn't work, all of the equipment in the fitness room was broken, and the pool looked like it hadn't been cleaned in weeks.
There is a very nice Hampton Inn right across the street. That's where we'll stay next time!

We checked in on the Memorial Day weekend, because the hotel had a nice pool and hot tub per the photos. Upon checkin, were told the pool and Hot tub were not open until the Memorial Day Weekend, (what?). We were advised that the pumps had to be checked and pool needed to be inspected but they were delayed by the inspectors, excuse after excuse.

In the morning I asked for some hot water out of the coffee machine, well that was broken. Finally, went to print a one page document from the business office, there was no ink in the printer and staff said they had to order it and didn't have any or know where it was. Also wouldn't print the doc from my flash drive due to the possibility of a virus (you would think the hotel had an antivirus program on their computer system).

Room was ok, but they placed us on the lower level, and the hotel was quiet with few cars in the lot, thought that was weird. Being a diamond elite of choice hotels for two years and giving all of our business to Choice Hotels (we stay approximately 50 - 70 nights per year), certainly did not feel this place was worthy of being a Choice Hotel.

I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times now and every time is very satisfying. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious. The hotel has a great view of the mountains from the lobby and if you get a room on the back side of the hotel you get that same view from your window. It's great to wake up to in the morning.

Accidentally left some clothes in the closet. Called a few hours later to have someone pick them up. Got a call back that my hangers were there, but not my clothes. Beds had been stripped but room not cleaned. After many calls I was offered a free stay the next time I was in town. Declined the offer - think it's obvious what happened to the clothes.
