My experience at the Tallyho might have been skewed by the reviews I read here beforehand. I was prepared for something off putting to happen and it never came to be. Upon checking-in I inspected the room way more than I normally would during a hotel stay and everything was fine. Clean sheets, clean bathroom, clean sink, etc. There was some Ben and Jerry's in the fridge from the person before me, the room smelled like a smoking room, and one of the lamps wasn't plugged in. Not a big deal. I had a King bed and the room had a large couch in it as well. If you are looking for a 5 Star hotel this isn't it but if you have reasonable expectations the Tallyho is great. The Canaan Valley is incredibly beautiful and we had a great trip snow-shoeing near Black Water Falls. I will be returning in a few months and would stay here again without thinking twice. Also, they have killer buckwheat pancakes and delicious fresh cut french fries at Rose's diner next door.
