As AT thru hikers, we've stayed in a lot of places on the trail. This place is at the bottom of our list. For 72$ it costs more than some B&Bs off the trail and it's still a mile from town, so not that convenient. The bathroom was scary, mold on the ceiling, felt like the shower was trying to... More

Mom & daughter stayed here delivering A.T. hiker back to trail. It was the most convenient motel to Hog Camp Gap on the A.T. We stayed in Room 37. On the good side, there were 2 beds reasonably comfortable, a frig (which we used), a microwave (which we didn't have need of), a tv (not the easiest remote to use... More

I checked in after 22:00 and got a king bed the sheets just covered the mattress, but that was fine with me cause the bed was comfortable enough. It was past the main part of town and quiet, there was a coffee maker in the room along with a microfridge. The a\c was cool and the shower was hot and... More

There was no internet, even though the manager insisted there was. My girls couldn't do their homework because there was o connection. It was a big room, but so old and crummy. There was a strange salt like substance on my daughter's pillow. No hot water and mold in the fridge. Look for a better option if you need a... More

we pulled off the highway in Buena Vista and found two drive-up motels -- the Buena Vista looked a bit better than the other one so we tried it. At first I thought we were out of luck because at 6 PM the office was closed. However, to the right of the office door was a note and a corded... More

Motel clerk was very friendly. However, toilet was dirty and I had to clean it. Beds were clean and comfortable. Rooms need updating. Only gave two towels for three people. I went to office and asked for one and was told would have to bring it to my room. Never showed up with the towel. You get what you pay... More

We checked in after a long day on the road from Ohio. We get into the room and the smell about knocks you over. I had to use my body spray to make the room somewhat tolerable. There was a dirty wash cloth on the bathroom floor, Moldy bathroom tiles, dead bugs on the sink, ceiling tiles cracked and bowing.... More

This is an OK place to stay while traveling. I used it twice this trip. Once on the way down and once on the way back for a motorcycle trip I had another real destination further away. It is inexpensive and it is close to the Blue Ridge Parkway. I have used on-line bookings or have just stopped in. There... More

As I've said more than once; independent lodgings have, for at least the last couple decades, the options of joining a chain, becoming a home-like charming place, or being just plain cheap. I've stayed at places that have made each of these choices, and this one has taken option three. Stayed here one night in order to get an early... More

I was on a motorcycle trip from Florida riding the Blue Ridge Pkwy. It was getting late in the afternoon, the GPS showed two motels in Buena vista, Virginia, the Budget in was a joke, it should be condemned, I didn't stay there. I rode just down the street to the second motel in town, the Buena Vista motel. I... More
