My husband and I spent 3 nights in the Marlinton Motor Inn. The first night, it was -13 outside, and the power went out for 3 hours. The second night was fine. The morning we checked out, there was no water in the hotel because the main line to the hotel had frozen.
The room itself was nice, clean, roomy. Not well lit. The internet connection was fine.
We had the room with the jacuzzi, and the jacuzzi was nice (when there was water and power).
The cord to the phone was broken and the phone kept disconnecting during phone calls. The long distance rate was very high. There was no cell phone reception and since we had to check on our child, we had to use it.
The jacuzzi wouldn't drain unless you held the plug. That actually turned out to be a good thing since we then used that water to flush the toilet with when the water was out.
The ladies at the front desk were nice, but not helpful. They didn't have any information as to when the water/power would be on, and didn't seem to even call anyone to ask. They didn't offer bottled water to the rooms, but did go get water for the restaurant.
The restaurant was okay for breakfast, but I'd avoid it for dinner. It was slow, and not very good food. When we were there for breakfast, there was one waitress, who was new, and very overwhemeled. She was nice, and apologetic, but SLOW!
All in all, I've give the place a solid C-. I'd stay again if I couldn't find anywhere else.
