We booked this motel for the location and the fact that it was "non-smoking" in the main building. We arrived at about 4pm. The room was sweltering hot and smelled like an ash tray. We told Margaret, she gave us a spray which was worse. We turned the air conditioning on a left for 3 hours. Got back, room still... More

Just wanted to update my review. I really liked it the first time we stayed there, the 2nd wasn't quite as pleasant. For one thing, when they assigned rooms, they neglected the part where I requested a pet-friendly room. When we arrived in the early evening, there was one woman at the front desk and a fairly long line. When... More

We came to the area to look for homes and needed a place to stay at a reasonable rate. The Lake Inn fits the bill. The room was clean, well maintained and had the basics including a mimi-fridge for those that might stay longer. The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were a bit to hard, but let's face it,...

We stayed at The Lake Inn at Hardy Va to have a place to sleep while visiting family in Huddleston at Smith Mtn Lake. The motel room was very well decorated and very clean. We appreciated that our room was tidied with clean towels and the bed made when we returned that evening. All the motel assistants were very cordial... More

Research trip. Safe place. Clean, comfortable, easy access and no bugs. Dated, but new bedding!!!! Very nice stuff. No hassles. Basic breakfast. Slept very soundly. Staff was terrific---referred us to a fabulous Italian restaurant. Wifi was a little glitchy, but the fact that it was saved us one huge mistake. Staff fixed the problem and apologized all over the place.

My husband and I went to the Martinsville race and stayed at this hotel. The track is about an hour from the hotel. The staff was very nice and the hotel was clean. The continental breakfast included doughnuts bread bagels and yogurt. Nothing to get excited or upset about. It was enough to get our day started. They also have... More

Decent could be better attention to detail in the bath. But overall good value. Very nice people in the office. One of 3 hotels in the area. Makes no difference off season. We came in March the others were lake front but 50% higher price. Not worth the up charge for me as I am not fishing, have no need... More

Great front desk service, Mattresses firm and new. Room very clean. Simple continental breakfast. A nice bungalow type setting so there is parking right outside your door. Solid so you can't hear noise from other rooms.

Lodging is okay, bit outdated but clean. Wanted a other more quiet room which was no problem. They have a connection with a Italian restaurant where you get 15% off. So far so good. 08:00 breakfast, nothing, nada. Coffee thee yoghurt and some dried out pastry. No bread. No jam. No eggs. The lady at the front desk: I don't... More
