We checked in. Went to the room and checked out. There were bugs in the room. Spiders, stink bugs and 2 others I couldn't determine. Dog food on the floor. Food in the refrigerator. The furniture was outdated. Stains on the furniture and cigarette burns on the floor. No coffee pot. We tried to give this place a try but... More

I stayed here for two nights in July. It is very conveniently located near the highway and took me less than 15 min to Roanoke, where I took the bar exam. The family who run the motel are very nice and sweet. Yes, the place is old and needs renovation. However, it is clean and quiet, and extremely affordable. I... More

There were mixed reviews for this property and this is an older motel that needs some updating. Our room was clean and there was a good private grassy area to walk our dogs. The bathroom counter and sink area was updated with granite and the shower had a curved shower rod giving more room and the bathroom had a double... More

My wife and I stayed at this motel from Sep. 6-8 for two nights as we were in town for the Ohio State-Virginia Tech game. Unfortunately, everything else nearby was booked. When we arrived Sunday night, the woman who worked the front desk was friendly, and on the outside the motel was in good condition. And then we entered. I... More

Me and my family come here all the time whenever we need a room. The staff is really helpful and friendly! We live in Canada, and normally go to Florida a lot to visit the rest of my family, so this nice little motel comes right in the middle of the way. The price is reasonable, and the location is...

I had a long trip from Texas to New York and stopped here for the night. If you're someone like me who gets sucked into paying less, you get what you pay for, and pay dearly, which is a sleepless night with sheets that don't feel like they've been cleaned since the 90s, and the most disgusting bathroom that a...

Stopped at this place very late at night after 12 hours driving. Talked to the man at the desk; got a reasonable rate. Non-smoking room smelled like cigarettes and the carpets were disgusting. A/C smelled moldy and refrigerator was barely cooler than the room. Too tired to worry about that so I had a drink and crashed out. Was awakened... More

Could not beat the price for a place to stop on a long drive. The rooms where clean and had space to move around. Right off the highway with easy access back on. The host was very kind and eager to assist. They had my paperwork ready and all I had to do was sign and get my key, which... More

We got there around 11pm... I had to ask to change rooms, pillow cases smells sweat, carpets was stained and the AC smelled bad when we turned on. Guy was friendly, he gave us another room, but, I had to ask for fresh pillow cases, the were smelly too. A clean room is everything we ask...
