This is a locally owned motel. It was clean, had a/c, comfy beds and a small fridge WITH a freezer (which we appreciate as we travel with a cooler with cold packs). Pets are welcome. No frills. Soap is provided. Bring your own shampoo and hairdryer. No coffee. The owner, John, is humorous. We enjoyed him!

John was so very helpful and courteous !! Treated my daughter and I VERY well ! Stopped in during the heat wave and he made sure the a/c was on for us before we got in! He will even pick you up from the trailhead if you need a ride! Can’t beat the price ! Everything we needed, no frills, just a simple older motel! Thanks for all your help John!! Dakota F

Last month I was moving from Baltimore to Saint Louis and stopped in Frostburg, three hours into my drive. After a stretching my legs, I returned to my car only to find it was completely dead. Flash forward to a tow to Red Ridge Auto Repair and crying in front of my new favorite mechanic, I walked across the street to Charlie’s. John, the owner, kindly listened to my plight and settled me into a room. The room was clean, very quiet, and had a World Champion air conditioner. John was so flexible about my check out, “you’ve got enough on your mind with your car breaking down, just let me know when you can” I think were his exact words. If you find yourself in a similar situation or just happen to be visiting the charming town of Frostburg, I highly recommend Charlie’s for a good night sleep and a very very kind owner!

My cousins and I stayed here when we were doing family history. John the owner was very nice and the room was clean. There were 3 of us, but we were only left 2 towels. We ate and had a drink at the connected bar. This was no frills, but was good. The waitress was really good and spent time talking to us.

Old motel with smallish rooms. Near Frostburg State University. Restaurant is on site. Close to other restaurants. Privately owned, but with low rates. This reminds me of the motels we stayed at when I was a child. Several miles off the interstate. Quiet.

This was a perfect place for us to stay overnight on our way to Harper's Ferry, WV. The rates was great, staff friendly and the room quiet and clean. That's all we needed to be happy! If you are looking for upscale-then this is not the place for you!

This is an interesting motel, u-shaped with a lively bar at one end. Also atypical in that there is an entrance into a hallway so that the motel room door is interior. The room is clean and comfortable, the mattress firm and provides a good night's sleep. Plenty of hot water too. Great price and value. John, the owner (who bought it from Charlie 35 years ago) has a great sense of humor and was very easygoing. Room has a microwave and refrigerator/freezer but no coffee maker. No breakfast, pool, or fitness center. Just a good, quiet night's sleep for a good value.

Charlie's is a gem. Room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Price was a bargain compared to the mega-hotel chain offerings in the area. Staff super friendly, which is in keeping with the people who live in Allegany County, Maryland, If you are looking for no-frills lodgings that will not dent your budget, Charlie's is for you. I will definitely be staying here on my next trip to western Maryland

Check in was very easy and the gentleman was friendly. Make sure you ask for the Code 14 top secret wifi password, it's worth it. Room was small but we knew that in advance. A/C, Microwave, fridge, freezer, TV, and everything worked great. Overall very clean room. We did spend some time at the built on bar and the folks were very friendly, beers were cold and inexpensive, and where can you play pool for 50 cents a game. The mattresses and pillows were way above average for your typical American country motel which was a pleasant surprise, and it's nice to wake up refreshed. There were folks grilling in the parking lot and enjoying some adult beverages when we arrived but it was dead quiet at night.
