Just off of the Appalachian Trail and ready for a shower and decent room. That is exactly what I received. That is also exactly how the rooms are priced basic and affordable. Front office staff was very welcoming and knowledgeable about what was available in the area. The hotel does cater to the hiking community in the form of discounts.... More

Haven's is perfectly fine for a night off of the trail. It's an older place, certainly not fancy, but the sheets were clean and the water was hot. I can overlook other things if those two criteria are met. When you figure that your $40 also gives you a ride to and from the AT it's a bargain. It's also... More

Hiked for about a week, rained most of the time, so we decided to take a night to dry out, do some laundry before heading back out. Called and spoke with Ron who was amazing, informative, helpful. He told us to call him when we reached the "Winding Stair Gap" trailhead and he would come pick us up free of... More

Free hiker shuttle, great rate, friendly staff, clean, wi-fi, many tv channels, guest laundry. It wasn't the Taj Mahal but for the price it is everything the through hiker is looking for. Close to many restaurants and the outfitter.

This place is run down, and old. Our room front door wouldn't shut all the way, there were two gaps in door, behind both double beds the foundation and flooring were apart about 4 to 6 inches. This place needs to be torn down before someone gets hurt. I couldn't sleep fearing the wall would fall in or something would... More

I stayed here while hiking the Appalachian Trail. As part of my stay, they shuttled me free of charge to and from the trail. For a budget motel, it wasn't horrible. The lady at the front desk was friendly and helpful. I took advantage of the on site laundry and Internet. My sheets were clean and the TV worked. However,... More

Overall, not bad for the price. Manager was friendly and attentive. Would have been nice to have a bathtub, but maybe other rooms have them. My room was right next to the road, and traffic noise was loud and constant. Biggest complaint was cleanliness of the room. Upon checkin found hairs on the pillow cases. No daily cleaning if you...

If my husband hadn't already occupied the room when my kids and I met up with him, we'd have never checked in. Yes, there is fuzzy mold in the shower. Ewww. The room felt dirty and I have used towels like they offer to wash my car at home. I agree with Mark N's comment...$50 for this? No way! (Water... More

Stopped in for a night while on a hiking trip. Rate was cheap, room was clean. everything worked in the room as it should (lights, TV, AC, fridge). Laundry Room was dark but functional. When the AC cycled off we could hear conversations in the next room, that was our only knock on the place.
