“Second Stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

This was the second time at the Turf Motel. For the money, The Turf is a good choice. The king smoking room is large and roomy with micro-frig, coffee maker, and usual toiletries. 32" regular television, table and desk. Nothing fancy but very clean. My biggest complaint is that the bed mattress is extremely hard, I don't mean firm...it is hard, and I found it to be uncomfortable. Motel is quiet, safe and staff are extremely nice. Breakfast is free, limited buffet style, but very good with enough variety to satisfy everyone. Location to casino is excellent, and across the street from fast food restaurants. Would I stay again, yes I will. Compared to the cost, location and amenities, even with the hard bed, The Turf is still the best value for the money in Charles Town in my opinion!

Room Tip: There is a newer section to the motel .

My sister and I just got home this morning from an overnight trip to casino. We stayed in the Turf motel and loved it! We stayed in the older section attached to the office/restaurant. It was on the 2nd floor. We had a small balcony on the back. The room was a junior suite with 2 double beds. It was very spacious! There would be plenty of room for a family! It had a newer large mini fridge, and a microwave. The bathroom had a regular size tub that had a whirlpool/jacuzzi in it. There was a heat lamp in there too that you could turn on to heat the bathroom. The room was extremely clean! It was a smoking room (we are non-smokers) and there was no odor in room! We were each given a coupon for the (free) breakfast buffet which was great also.. it had eggs, bacon(that was really good), sausage, biscuits,french toast, fresh fruit, cereal , coffee and orange juice.. We had a quick check in and quick check out. If you are going to casino, a quick left out of parking lot and there is the driveway into the casino.. just a second away. I will go back if we are in the area again.

Decent price, good location, clean rooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We loved the ribs at the Rib Room for dinner but the buffet breakfast was below average. We stayed in the section of the hotel across the parking lot from the lobby. The rooms are dated and the 'motel smell' was a little overwhelming. Otherwise, it fit the bill.

We stayed here because staying at the Hotel on the grounds of the Casino was twice as much. The Rooms were dated but clean, the beds were comfortable and the staff friendly. Its a quick walk to the Racetrack.

The Breakfast is typical hotplate fare nothing to write home about.

To be honest this is really a 3.5 star place, a good place for the value and the amount of time you actually spend in the room.

Room Tip: Choose one of the rooms inside the building.

Check in was fast and friendly. The rooms are nothing fancy, but they are clean. Our room was right under a stairwell, which wasn't the quietest of places, but it served it's purpose. This is a good value when compared to the other hotels that are close to the casino. The shuttle service was great. The free breakfast wasn't spectacular....but it was FREE. The pulled bbq sandwichesat the RIb Room are very tasty.

I called the Turf Motel for a quote for a Bachelorette Party I was planning and talked to Mr. Duane Marcus who set us up with a special party room that was big enough to fit our whole party for all our in hotel games and hanging out. We got a second, smaller apartment to accommodate everyone's sleeping arrangements. Both rooms were clean and spacious and exceeded our expectations. The motel was right down the road from the casino and there was a free 24 hour shuttle to take us to and from without trouble

Mr. Marcus also set our party up with welcome cocktails, $10 in chips for the casino and a coupon for a delicious breakfast the next morning. He also arranged a tubing trip with River Riders for us and included that in our room fee to save us time and trouble.

All the staff was very helpful and we will definitely be staying at the Turf for any of our return trips!

We took we thought was a deal on two bedroom apartment. It was musty smelling and while labeled non-smoking, smelled smokey. The curtains were yellowed and needed to be cleaned. The a/c unit was in the living room and there were no vents in the two bedrooms so it got very hot at night. The 2nd room was so small we had to keep our suitcases in the living room. The motel claimed to be sold out and would not move us to another room. Will never make this mistake again. We had a lamp that didn't work and they didn't come to provide a new bulb. The free breakfast was mediocre at best. We were given a room in the older side though but buyer beware!
Good available parking and they do run a shuttle however.

Room Tip: Not sure about the newer side but jdo not accept a room in the bricked building, which is the older...
