“Needs Some T.L.C.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

Recently spent the night at this hotel en route back to Canada.
The check in staff person " Dawn" was extremely helpful and cheery. This was a welcomed bonus, as when we booked the room via cell phone and in the car, the gentleman on the phone could hardly speak english and thus combined with traffic noise was frustrating. When in the hotel business, customer service is the # 1
priority when inquiring or booking a room.
The room was clean and had a fridge and microwave which worked well.
The rooms however are dated and could use some tender loving care. The bed was comfortable, however the sheets had that piley textured feel.
Very nice new AC unit. Unfortunately there was night time road work being done and the sound of the rollers and equipment made for a fitful sleep.

Room Tip: Perhaps call to see about the night road work.

As soon as I entered my room, the power was interrupted due to a storm. However, the desk clerk was very helpful to all guests.

furniture and beddings are a bit worn but very clean. comfortable bed and quite night though located roadside. Above average breakfast compared with others in the same price range. A good value!

Recommend to those who head to outdoor trips in WV, such as whitewater rafting.

This hotel is badly in need of renovations.
It appeared to be fairly clean and the staff was friendly and accommodating. All room furnishings are old and very dated.

Room Tip: All rooms face a busy highway and have just basic amenities. There is a coffee pot though. Contine...

We stayed here on our way to Pittsburgh. For location, it is right off of 19, so it is easy to get to. The bed was quite comfortable. The downside was that the room itself was a little drab. It seems they tried to do some remodeling and painting, the smell was still in the room, but it was not done well. They do have a decent breakfast considering it is a small breakfast area. They have a machine for pancakes, which were not half bad. Overall, reasonably priced.

Children loved continental breakfast complete with instant pancake machine that magically makes fresh pancakes at the press of a button. Also had yogurt, juice, coffee, cereal, and biscuits and gravy. Quite yummy. Very nice night desk clerk, and convenient location on main travel route.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2012

We liked it there a lot. The room had been updated, was super clean and had what we needed.

Just so you know.....The complimentary breakfast was not great so we ate in town at the Schony's. The room was not quiet...someone who was up till midnight and up again at five a.m. was next to us....who knew that would happen??. The carpet fresh was too strong but died down once the door was left open for awhile. WiFi was off and on all evening.

Overall...we would go back because of the clean room and good value.

Room Tip: Pick up a Coupon Book at the WELCOME CENTER, you can get a room for $52./ night with it. Ask for a...
