My room was clean and comfortable but the bathroom did need an upgrade. Friendly staff, decent rate. Great location. Very comfortable, safe, not a bad choice. I did not try the breakfast or the attached restaurant so I cannot comment on that.

Old & smelly. Stains throughout the room. Felt damp & smelled like mildew. We got bit by bed bugs, found the bug & placed it in the tub for staff to see. Motel refunded our money for the incident. Close to 309, 78 & 22. Truckers' stop so there are many trucks parked at night.

Where do I start? Pros: four walls, a roof (not sure it is water tight), free parking, free wi-fi, 2 mirrors, hot and cold running water, ice bucket, surprisingly comfortable bed, and no dead body between the mattress and boxspring (bonus). So-whats (i.e., you get what you pay for): dated decoration in the room, cathode ray tube TV but it... More

I was looking for a hotel close to Appalachian trail and found this one. It has good rooms and serves nice breakfast. It is located close to the Appalachian trail. The place might not feel best for the luxury travelers. But for those traveling on budget, this would perfectly fit the bill.

The booking at this motel was arranged by another person. Otherwise, I would have left immediately and found a different place. The best thing about the place is the spaciousness of the rooms. The WiFi was not too bad. Everything else was very poor. Check in experience was very disconcerting, especially the charging of a security deposit of nearly the... More

Having been here several times in the past, we stopped here after a hard day of work and received nothing but aggravation. We pay cash as we are on the company's budget for all trips out of state.

Huge complex...282 rooms all in 1-story motel buildings. Some rooms/areas have been renovated. HUGE pool, actually goes to 12' deep. Course, water was a little cool..... I managed... More
