A perfect no frills place to sleep. Ask for a room facing the river and wake up to birds singing and fantastic scenery. Room smells smokey. Water fluctuates in temp. No frills. Three steps to the parking space. Free wifi. For the price I could stay two nights for the price of one. For my tastes ... Wifi ... Easy in n out ... Very quiet ... Incredible nature views ... Great sleep ... This is a perfect place to stay and a bargain to boot.

On the lower end of our typical hotel choices (which are pretty low end :)), but it was a great value! It was a hotel with NO frills, but was clean, convenient, and cheap. It's a 10-15 min drive from downtown Charleston, where we had dinner. I probably wouldn't stay at this hotel alone or as a vacation base, but it was fine for our purposes.

My husband and I spent 2 nights in this motel on our stay in Charleston. The premises were well maintained, the staff very friendly, the room very clean, only the matress was very hard. The only downfall was that a family with kids stayed next door and the kids were screaming and banging in that room until 2:00am in the morning and were awake and screaming again by 7:00am in front of our door. But this is more the parents responsibility and not the motel. Otherwise the river view was very pretty and we experienced also a thunderstorm with dollar size hail coming out of nowhere. All in all it was a adventures stay. For staying only a couple nights, I refer this motel to everyone with a low budget.

Room Tip: Take a room with the river view. Also make sure you don't have a family with more than one kid n...

My husband and I stayed here on our visit to Charleston last weekend. Very impressed with the cleanliness, quietness and comfort of our room and bath, not to mention the view of the Kanawha River. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room price was very, very attractive and appreciated. Liked it so much, we've made reservations to stay here in September when we travel back from South Carolina for a family reunion. So, the Inn may not have all of the amenities like your high dollar lodgings, but who cares???? It's safe, comfortable and clean. Biscuits and pizza are within a stone's throw. Thanks, Budget Host Inn of Charleston WV.

We staying in two Budget Host Inns on our trip to Myrtle Beach (there and back), both were chosen because of reviews on Tripadvisor. I've got to say, I was so impressed by the value of both properties. For stopovers, especially with an infant, all you want is something clean and affordable and this is what you will get. Immaculate rooms. The Charleston property also has a nice view of the river and mountains. The owner of Charleston BHI wasn't as friendly as his peer down in Wytheville, but still obviously cares about his business and maintaining his property for his customers. The only thing I would say that was a minor inconvenience, would be the big production it is to get to the main strip where all the restaurants and gas stations are, at least according to Google maps.

Room Tip: The river view is nice.
