My husband and I journeyed from Baltimore to Charles Town for a family wedding for a 2 night stay. Since I work at a B&B in Baltimore, my eyes are trained to notice EVERY small detail. I was pleasantly surprised by our room. It was a non-smoking room on the lower level of the older section on the motel. The room, with a king bed, smelled clean and fresh and was very spacious with a nice sitting area. The bathroom was also quite roomy and provided me with lots of counter space for hair products, make up, etc.
Upon check-in we were handed breakfast coupons for the complimentary breakfast buffet, which we only ate on Saturday morning. It was underwhelming, but decent enough if you want to grab a quick bowl of cereal. We did not eat any meals at the Rib Room.
The motel lounge offered a great happy hour. $2 Rum and Cokes were a great way to start out the night before heading to the casino. My husband also entered the Karaoke contest, which was a fun time! We also met many friendly people who were also just looking to relax and have a nice time.
We would definitely return. We love how close the motel is located to the Casino and that they offer a free shuttle bus which runs every 15 minutes (we did not use).
