“Large Rooms, Close to Racetrack”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

The Inn at Charles Town is a creditable hotel adjacent to a horse racing track and gaming casino. The hotel is not affiliated with major chains. My room was larger than most I stay in, with a king size bed, large desk, comfy chair and foot stool and a small refrigerator (but not a microwave oven). A single cup coffeemaker is stationed in the bathroom with enough coffee to brew four cups of coffee. Unfortunately there is not enough sugar or creamer for more than two cups. A large walk-in shower takes the place of a bathtub. Toiletries were nice but not remarkable. A 40 inch flat screen TV is mounted on the wall facing the bed. The bed was extra comfy and well appointe d with linens and comforter. Wireless internet access is free and worked well. A continental breakfast is provided to all guests without cost. Housekeeping was most polite and efficient. My room had a pleasant view of the track. One could observe horses going through their morning workouts. In the evening you could see races, but not like one could as a visitor at the track. The workout room has basic cardio gear. The property was better than expected.

We had a 1 day trip for our 26 wedding anniversary and it was excellent. The place is very clean, staff is nice, secure building and our room had a great view of the racetrack! The breakfast buffet is very good and just an overall quality stay.

Room Tip: ask for a room that you can see the racetrack.

We enjoyed our stay at the INN this time better than the first, three years ago. The hotel and our room with two queen size beds was very clean . The staff at the desk was courteous and went that extra mile to be helpful. The hotel provided a breakfast buffett every morning from 6:30am until 10:00am, we arrived each day at 9:30am no crowds the buffett was good and plentiful. We liked the shuttle bus from the hotel to the casino every 15 minutes, verrry conventient. NO LUCK AT THE CASINO

Just spent a short but very relaxing time at the Inn at Charles Town, WV. It is beautiful, very clean, the staff is so nice, and the rooms are excellent! We were on the 4th floor and could see the track and casino from our room. Breakfast was delicious. We met some of our friends who are from Wisconsin. We highly recommend this hotel. And, the price was surprisingly low for such a fantastic hotel.

We spent one night at the Charles Town Inn on 7/22/12. Got there around 4:30 and immediately noticed that in that huge parking lot there are only 8 spaces for handicapped parking. It definitely needed to be twice that much. It was a long walk in from the car and it took my husband quite a while on crutches. The first impression inside the hotel was Wow. Very attractive. Check in went quickly. We had received a comp in the mail for our room for $39. Our room was a little larger then your normal Comfort Inn and had a 42" tv set although there were a number of channels just for sports and several channels that we wanted to look at but had no sound. The beds were quite comfortable, but for being queens they seemed short and narrow. It was very quiet in the room. No noise from upstairs (like in the Fairfield Inns!!!). Morning breakfast was lovely with eggs, pancakes, bacon, biscuits, fresh fruit, yogurts, cereals and pastries. There were no paper products only ceramic dishes and glasswear to use. Having a free newspaper was nice also. Overall, we loved the hotel and will return should we receive another comp like this one. $189 seems a bit steep.

This was our first stay at the Inn at Charles Town. We got a special promo rate by having a Club Hollywood card from the casino. Our check-in was quick and efficient at 3:45 PM. We also received a free food voucher for $40 which we used at the Epic Buffet. Their food is excellent. Our room was a deluxe king and was very comfy. We enjoyed the free shuttle bus service to the casino and racetrack. The distance was definitely walkable, however, the temperature was just too darn hot . . .100 degrees!!! That bus realy came in handy. Breakfast was your average comp breakfast, but it was tasty and plentiful. We did not have a problem finding a seat at breakfast around 8:30 AM. There were also plenty of tables outside on the patio, but again it was a little too warm for outside dining! We definitely will stay here again on another trip to the races.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor and had no problems.
