The Old Clark Inn was perfect for us. We were in the area hiking the Greenbrier River Trail from Cass to Marlinton. Checked reviews on TA and OCI looked like a good match. The Innkeepers, Nelson and Andrea, were helpful on the several phone calls made to them to ask questions. They offer quite a few room and pricing options; are very good listeners and suggested appropriate options to meet our needs. If you are traveling with a group, they have a budget priced 3rd floor that might work for you. We took a 2nd floor room with single and full size beds and private bath for about $65+. The room was spotless, beds comfortable, nice linens, plush towels, clawfoot tub/shower combo, 13" TV w/ remote. Continental breakfast included fresh fruit, cereals, bagels, english muffin, oatmeal, good selection of teas, coffee, etc. A guest refrigerator is located in the comfortable dining area for personal food items. Nice living room area and wonderful front porch with several comfortable rockers. Andrea showed us around the Inn and to our room, very professional and friendly. Both are familiar with the area and can answer most questions or put you in the right direction. They know about area hiking and biking trails, scenic roads for motorcycling, and other activities. On a shuttle ride back to our car, Nelson told us the OCI was originally built in the 1920's as a hotel, then owned and operated by the Clark's for many years and he and Andrea have been the innkeepers for 9 years. They seem to be hard working people that know their business and enjoy doing it. This is not the type of Inn on a hill overlooking green pastures; it's a true small town Inn. The Greenbrier River Trail is a block from the OCI, and directly across the street is a commercial business with large fenced area, certainly not scenic but not a problem. Their website accurately depicts the property but you get much more, it's a great overall value and I'll return when in the area.
