The staff was very friendly and the hotel was very clean and spacious. It is conveniently located across the street from the University of West Virginia football stadium and the hospital. The breakfast was excellent - hot food: waffles, pancakes, eggs, sausages, sausage gravy, buiscuts, muffins, juice, fruits, coffee, etc... your eyes will be bigger than your tummy. If you say during the week, they have evening social with food for the guests. I only stayed over the weekend, and there weren't anything going on the weekend. The guests were all very friendly even though I did encounter a couple of "not-so-friendly" or "strange" guests. Overall, it was a great hotel.
It is a very nice hotel for one that allows dogs over 25 lbs to stay there. The pet fee was $75 per stay. Most hotel charges a $20 per "night" fee. It's depending on how long you are staying, the fee can be pretty good comparing to other hotels. Although I don't understand why the pet fee is so high and is non-refundable considering all my dog left behind was some fur. I have seen some kids that can really spill and mess up the carpet and they get to stay for free??? I don't get that. Anyway, while I was there, there were several other people with dogs. it is definitely a petfriendly hotel. It has small areas where the dogs can walk around.
