The rooms are clean, and nice. The free breakfast is hosted by a sweet lady. You have access to a gym across the way. The is a Waffle House next door and a gas station. It is the best place to stay in Abingdon at state rate.

Got stuck in a snow storm. The hotel is old, but clean. Had a house keeper walk in without knocking, my wife just had surgery and was changing her bandages while i was at the car. The hotel is nice but the lack of privacy hurts. Im not sure if i would stay again.

We loved our stay here. It was very clean and comfortable but more than that it was nicely decorated for Christmas and our room was warm and inviting from the soft colors to the framed pictures on the wall of local scenery. Everyone was friendly, from the cleaning lady to the hotel desk clerk. Yes, they allow pets and charge...

After staying here several times over the last few months, I can honestly say we have never been disappointed. The facility is an older building that shares a parking lot with another hotel and fast food restaurant at a busy intersection. Though the setting is less than ideal, this small property is clean, quiet and comfortable. We found the staff...

Nice place, good location but I was charged $35.00 per night for a 7 pound Chihuahua. In my experience the additional pet fee is usually per stay, not per night. I won't be staying here again. There are too many other hotels in the area that are pet friendly.

We take a lot of road trips with our two young daughters and our dog and stay in a lot of hotels.
