“BRING BACK THE OLD MANAGERS!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

This was my second stay at the Morgantown motel and It was less than pleasurable!
The lovely young couple managing last year are gone and it has been taken over by a non English speaking couple who you DO NOT WANT TO HAVE TO TRY TO SPEAK TO!

-Good luck getting the new foreign managers to answer the doorbell OR speaking any English.
-They were RUDE!
-The rooms had bugs.
-Must be new housekeepers because the rooms were less than clean and the bed had HAIR in it.
-Guests looked like they were all on drugs. (Very scary!)

They need to burn this place to the ground and start over...in a new location.

Room Tip: stay somewhere else

We booked the Morgantown Hotel based on good reviews. After arriving at 11pm we rang the bell and there wasn't any answer after several tries. We had no choice but to go somewhere else. The next morning my husband went to the motel to make sure we weren't charged and let them know what happened. They said they know that the bell is not working and need to fix it. We would not be charged we were told as we hadn't even stayed. Well our Mastercard bill and you guessed it, we were charged. I called and they were frustrated that the mistake was made and promised we'd be refunded. After 3 months, nothing. So we've spoken in person and on the phone. I'll now try e-mailing them. If you won't be there before 8pm, don't book in advance.

It was affordable and met our need for a place not far off our route. A decent shelter from the snow. I would have liked a rug or something as it was impossible to keep the floor clean (gross when going to the very basic bathroom -think gas station like, at night). I know it is cheap, and I would recommend it for a brief stay, staying it was the most "Spartan" room I have had for that price and I have traveled a bit.

We stopped overnight on our way to Florida. We were looking for a clean room that was moderately priced. This fit the bill. The room had been renovated, except the bathroom floor sloped. The front desk was extremely friendly and helpful, even late at night. The only drawback for us was it is located in town, not near the interstate.

I stayed here looking for a quiet nights rest without getting taken to the bank. If you can get past the appearence the rooms are quite comfortable. Mine had a king size bed,microwave,fridge and cable. This is truley the best value in morgantown at 54.88 w/tax. Front desk had great customer service and was very pleasant to deal with. Rooms are currently getting facelifts.

I stayed here for over 9 months during the Longview project ( 2010 - 2011 ). It cost $200 a week.

At the time, the owners didn't seem to care too much about the property.
The room I was in, was alright, though the toilet didn't flush correctly.

- Bad Things about the place -
During the winter time, the parking lot was never plowed / shoveled, and I ended up getting stuck a LOT.
I had to buy a space heater, due to the in room heater not working very well.
The room was showing it's age.
Located at a very dangerous intersection.

- Good things about the place -
Very close to everything in Morgantown.
Kept clean.
Always hot water.
The older lady who worked the front was very friendly .
Good view of the river from the back.

Over all it wasn't a bad place to stay, and it was cheap for the area.
