I stayed 2 weeks and found that it was renovated, owners and housekeeping (Kathy) were very friendly and the place was very tidy and well kept and clean. There was HBO on the tv. There was no microwave but there was a fridge. I paid a little under $700 including tax for a 2 week stay. That's more than I... More

Stayed here on the way through Charleston. Clean. Quiet. Comfortable bed. Refrigerator. Checked in about 11pm. No problems. No worries. Internet was adequate and free. I don't know what else you could possibly ask for at this price! I will stay here again the next time through!

Made just a quick stop here. Clean and nicely kept hotel with a great cost factor. Would stay again. We booked online, but were told that in the future we should call first because their system isn't integrated with online booking, however they did find us a room.

Nothing overly wrong with this budget motel, except that it's pretty outdated. I paid $49 for this room on a Saturday night, so I wasn't expecting anything more than a bed, tv, and full bathroom. And that's about all you get, lol. There is a mini fridge - that was a very nice and welcoming surprise. Other reviewers mentioned noise... More

This is a clean, safe, motel situated on the Kanawha River. It is easily accessed from the nearby highways. The rooms are clean, the beds reasonably comfortable, and the AC works fine. Like most motels with outside opening doors, the rooms can be a little musty. Here the rooms smelled OK. We have stayed here many times and is is... More

To be fair to this motel - my review is based on features common to motels in all price points. As with all budget lodging - the building was old and furnishings/decor dated. The office personnel were a little too laid back and not overly friendly in the way you expect from a front desk, but this is common in... More

Spent our honeymoon here in 1992. Came back to visit in 2014. It's not royal class, but it's very clean and comfortable, and the owners are very nice people! You won't be disappointed if you stay here

I see a lot of people saying they rented a room here for $55, well for some reason, the price has gone up to $74 (with the AAA discount), and let me tell you, it is definitely NOT worth the $74. I'll make a few lists so that it's easier to take in: Pros: Mini fridge... Cons: Hair everywhere! Long... More

I rated a 4 but everything was great. It was very clean and comfortable . No problems at all. I would give a 5 if breakfast were offered. There are many restaurants nearby. Easy to find. Beautiful view of the river.

We booked this room for a cheap family weekend getaway. At $55.00 a night with my AAA discount I wasn't expecting much. However I was very surprised to find that the room looked freshly updated. The cleaning was absolutely immaculate. The room had a small refrigerator and the twin beds were comfortable. We had a room on the back of... More
