Two-night, Sat & Sun inexpensive stay while working at the Homestead in Hot Springs, VA (25 miles north on VA-202). Front Desk Manager, Brenda, was SO professional and nice. She's moving next door to Manage the new Taco Bell. Convenient to have bar and restaurant on property, but weekend b'fast and dinner buffets could use a re-freshening. Although clean, the... More

We stayed here for one night on our way home from vacation. The hotel looks nice enough from the outside. The desk staff was friendly and helpful. Upon arrival we were told that there was a DJ that would be playing until 2 am so she put us in a room at the other end of the hotel. You could... More

$5.00 cover charge to use the motel bar after paying over $100. for the night. Parking lot trashed by bar patrons. Smoking allowed, ashtrays furnished. Music so loud you can hear it in the parking lot. Not a place to take a family or enjoy a quite evening. Very limited breaksfast choices.

Most hotels provide a free hot breakfast bar with eggs, meat, cereal and fruit. I like a little of all four items to keep my digestive tract fine-tuned during the long days of motorcycle riding. This facility took breakfast orders and charged for a second breakfast if you desired fruit or cereal with the eggs. I was not impressed and... More

On a recent motorcycle trip we chose this motel for an overnite stay. Reception was great. Rooms were up to standard and a full complimentary breakfast was offered in the morning. But, the best surprise was that it looked like rain so the manager offered me a cover for my motorcycle. No charge !!! . Just return it in the... More

Stayed two nights to attend graduation in nearby town. This would be an above average accommodation, but for the loud hotel bar band/patrons. Awoke at 2:00 am the first night to yelling, motorcycles revving engines & other loud noises that went on for an hour. Found broken glass & blood trail near our car in the morning. Next night could... More

The front desk staff was pleasant and tried to be accommodating, but this place really was a dump. The outdoor breezeways between the rooms were filthy dirty and dusty, as was the hard to access elevator. The pool cover was off and the swimming pool was a lovely shade of dark, algae green. The rooms had seen far better days... More
