“Nice view, good value.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

This motel is a good choice. You get a free breakfast buffet. It is pet friendly with a minimal charge. Some of the lights didn't work but we worked around that minor problem. The shower could be treacherous for older folks as there is virtually nothing to grab hold of to steady yourself. No major problem with cleanliness; bed was adequately comfortable.

Quite simply, the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Just about everything in the room was broken or falling apart. Obviously the ownership is trying to nurse every penny out of the place. Unfortunately I happen to be there the same time as VA Tech graduation so the room cost me $120 which made me sick when I saw and smelled the room. However there was a really bad storm that night so i couldn't leave. Strangely though, the bed was comfortable. As for the rest of the room:
-Table broken
-Lampshade melted
-Safe broken
-Sink falling off wall
-No chair for desk
-1990's TV
-Mold on ceiling
Phone didn't work

Stayed in room 331 on May 15, 2014

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel.

Room wasn't super clean. Sheets and towels had hair on them prior to use. Breakfast was average, large space but nothing special-not allowed to take food back to your room either.

Great value for the price. Close to the highway, but secluded from the noise. All equiptment was in working order except for the phone, and who uses a landline these days. Breakfast was excellent variety, but slightly confusing in the layout.
