1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

This motel is relatively shabby, rooms are old, paint peeling in bathroom, dingy carpets etc. We stayed in room 128 the night of the cold front and the heater unit did not keep the room very warm at all (however it was 9 degrees outside). $50/night seems relatively normal these days for a lower end place with these kinds of issues. Rooms seemed clean enough and the place has a good location.
The inexcusable event was finding a live bedbug on the bed in the morning. Upon presenting it to the front desk they acted clueless but did work with Orbitz to immediately refund my money. I would be wary of staying here until the hotel issues a statement confirming they've fully exterminated and taken care of the issue. There is no reason a full size adult live bedbug should be hanging out in the daytime like that unless there's a major issue in these rooms. Just crossing my fingers that we haven't picked up hitchhikers for the rest of our trip.

Old building with great view of Roanoke Valley. Clean and comfortable with small bathroom. Better attention to a lot of small things needed like appearance of grounds and better coffee.
