We had a lovely stay despite the heat and the rain. The owners are very helpful and nice. It was a clean room right on the river. They have an inground pool that a family was enjoying when we returned from dinner.

Stayed one night, which was enough. While the rooms were clean and inexpensive, you can find MUCH better lodging in Tappahannock! The rooms are extremely small. The beds were hard as a rock, and the bathrooms looked like something from a 1950's college dorm. Small, no counter space, tile floor/walls, and a stand-up shower only. Towels were like sandpaper.

My daughter and sisters and I visited Tappahannock for a graduation and stayed at this family-owned and run motel. The staff was very friendly and the room was clean and very comfortable. Our room was in the back of the motel close to the pool and away from the main street so it was quiet. The pool was really nice... More

Drove down from the DC/NOVA area and made a last-minute booking on Memorial Day weekend. We fully expected the worst, but were totally surprised to find that our room was spacious, very clean and very comfortable. The people staying next to us told us they had been coming to this motel every year for the past 15 years (great fishing... More

We were in town to visit family. Older motel but very clean. They are in the process of renovating some rooms. Front desk staff were very welcoming and nice. Spacious room, very clean, and quiet. Close to restaurants, shopping, and the river.

When I pulled into the parking lot I became suspicious. When you see people leaning on the walls of the building drinking their 40's (oz of beer). Or when you check in the reservations is behind bullet proof glass. The most up settling was that the smell of the room nearly knocked me over. Had to go out a buy... More

Spent the extra money for the river view room. so worth it!! The rooms are off by themselves, so there is plenty of piece and quiet. I was traveling with my boyfriend and service dog and the owner made us feel at home. Was treated better here than at other hotels I have stayed at with her. Thank you for... More

The motel was a small roadside motel so we weren't sure what to expect. But, we were pleasantly surprised on how clean and cozy the room was. We were able to park right in front of our door which was very nice. The beds were comfortable and the room was a nice size. And, the gentleman who checked us in... More

Not sure who wrote the other reviews but my overnight stay was not comfortable. The rooms are indeed dated which is fine but the corners have dirt and bugs piled up in them the light shades have very questionable smears no blankets on the beds and the bedspread was dirty and stained but the sheets were clean. The carpet is... More

This is the 2nd time I have stayed here...both during major holidays. Rooms are clean and property well kept for a small motel. Quiet and safe. Owners are very nice and accommodating. We had (and requested) one of the larger rooms to the back which had two double beds, full bath (not just a shower stall) and small table with... More
