I reserved 2 rooms through the hotel website several weeks before arrival. We arrived at 7:15pm and were informed that they were about to give our rooms away in 15 minutes. They tried to call us but they had the wrong number. We checked in and put our stuff in our rooms. There was nothing in our reservation about losing... More

For the price, this hotel was clean. It's an older hotel - no frills but we were just passing through. The restaurant next door, The Anchor, has very good pizza and is friendly. No breakfast included. But there is a refrigerator in the room and a microwave. Pretty good for $55. It was very difficult to get to, however. My... More

Basic motel room. Just off the interstate but not noisy. Very clean room. Comfortable bed. Room had refrigerator and microwave. Staff very friendly. Our room looked out onto the Kanawha River. Good value for the money.

This motel was one of the better motels I have ever been to. Our room was spacious and we had a big comfortable king bed. The bathroom was modern and very clean. The wifi was extremely fast and we had a beautiful view of the river. I would be very likely to go back.

I usually stay in luxury hotels, but ended up here late one night when no other hotel in Charleston WV offered a smoking room. Skeptical because of the low rate, I was amazed by what you get for it. An old one story motel, with updated rooms, off a quiet I-64 exit (#96, Bell), the rooms on the back of... More

We were passing through and needed an economical place to stay. This was $55 a night plus tax. For a clean room with a microwave, refrigerator, and plenty of hot water, it was a bargain. We had a room on the side facing the river and enjoyed the view as the sun was setting. The room was quiet enough, although... More

We spent one night here recently while traveling to our destination. It was a great value and the room was large and clean. We spent a few dollars more to have a room on the river side and spent a little time enjoying the view before venturing next door for a pizza and drinks. Rooms on this side may be... More

I was traveling cross country (on business) from Colorado to Virginia then up the east coast to Boston, long trip. This was by far THE BEST hotel and best bang for your buck throughout my trip. It's in the very lovely town of Charleston, WV. It's easy access to the highway and town and everywhere else. The best part is... More

We have stayed here three times over the past three years. It started out okay but the last two years it's gone down hill. This past time will be the last time. If it weren't for the restaurant next door (the Anchor) I'm not sure this place would have any business. Outdated and uncomfortable. The beds are rock hard and... More

The motel was clean and kept well. All in all I am pleased with the way my visit went. Not the most friendly service but did their job and was helpful if needed. If I am ever in the area again and need a cheap place to stay I would stay here again.
