I would not recommend this hotel! We are not extremely picky, but this hotel was dated and smelled very musty. The bed was not comfortable. We would not return as it was definitely not worth the price.

Last year I gave a terrible rating to this hotel primarily due to poor management and service. This year I took my group back there after finding out is was under new ownership and management. The current team gets it right! Very pleased how they treated me and all of my group. Hotel is a bit old and dated but... More

I work for a big company and live in hotels half the year. I am accustomed to occasional issues at hotels but this place was just bad. We had reservations and showed up early. Didn't really expect to check in but sometimes it happens. We were told "sometime between 3 &4 we may be able to check in." So at... More

We were there during a local disaster and there were many work crews staying at the hotel. They seemed a little overwhelmed and some of the rooms were not ready, but the staff was working hard to accommodate their patrons. Nice outdoor pool and restaurants were close. Beds were not the most comfortable, but the room was clean.

First there was a bed bug disclaimer with the check in paperwork. The room had trash in it from a previous guest. There was hair in the sink and on the shower curtain. My electric door lock was broken so every time I needed to get in the room I had to get a hotel employee to let me in... More

My family and I were arriving late on our trip to Virginia, and needed a place to stay before we met our hosts. We had tried a disastrous stay at the Relax Inn in Lewisburg WV, and needed a new place very quickly. This hotel definitely did it. We arrived at the lobby late. I described our situation and the...

This hotel was awful. The only good thing I can say is the people working there were nice. I felt terrible for the poor girl working in the restaurant. Oh, and there is no carpet so you don't have to worry about smelly old, dirty carpet. The room we had was musty--bad. Smelled almost like sewage. Luckily I travel w/Clorox... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in late March as part of a business trip. Friendly owner and staff took excellent care of our needs. Nice room. Did not hear any noise from the bar that other travelers had mentioned. Excellent food.

only bright spot was check-in. The staff was friendly and efficient, but other than that the place is in need of repair and better management. Toilet valves leaked and thus the toilet tank continually filled throughout the night. About every 15 minutes you would hear the LOUD filling of the tank. The restaurant...don't even go there. Never used my breakfast... More
