“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

GPS is not correct for finding. The pool area is beautiful. We had 2 rooms. Both were small. The toilet/shower were in a small room comparable to what you might enjoy in a travel trailer. The fan/air-conditioner unit is an antique that was about like sleeping with a small cement mixer. The a/c unit in one room was leaking condensate badly and the carpeting was wet with evidence that this is a long-standing problem. The included breakfast is somewhat more lean than most with only one mandatory waffle maker, only bagged pastries. Would stay elsewhere when in the Cumberland area again.

Hotel a bit hard to find using a GPS that put us about 1/2 mile away and in front of a much lower ranking facility. HOWEVER once the lady on the phone corrected the directions all was well. Lobby, Pool, Exercise Facility, on site Resturant all the goodies one expects. Breakfast about average for the typical "included" fare. Rooms a bit out dated but quite adequate and comfortable but the shower / tub arrangement was strange. The "tub" was about a foot deep and the drain did not have a stopper but hey a hand towel solved that. The location, LaVale,Md was convenient to the TRAIN EXCURSION station and less expensive than the ones in Cumberland proper. Absolutely would return if in the area.

Our room was very clean and comfortable and close to all amenities and downtown. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It was great to have a nice lounge onsite to wind down at after a busy day. We always stay here when visiting Cumberland.

My wife and I spent a night here having driven down from Paradise, Pa. We arrived in Cumberland, rode the Mountain Thunder scenic rail trip to Frostburg, strolled and shopped a little, then went on to the motel. The grounds are an oasis of shrubbery and planted beds of flowers. The property is a snap to find, but once you are settled in, you feel as though you are a million miles from any hustle or bustle. Our room was located at the lower end of the property, which only added emphasis to the feeling of seclusion. A short walk takes one to the other end of the motel, where there is a homey lounge and restaurant. We sat and relaxed on the outdoor deck with very reasonably priced before dinner drinks, encountering several local folks who were extremely cordial, and a fountain of lore surrounding the prosperous little town. We thought we had pretty much done Cumberland, but how wrong we were. We will definitely be back sometime to fill in the blanks, and wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else.

Having stayed here a number of times over the years, I agree with folks who say the common areas need an upgrade. But I have found the rooms to be clean and pleasant with comfortable beds -- especially given the reasonable prices. The free breakfast is a nice benefit though better coffee would be a plus.

Great location in the mountains of Western Maryland near Cumberland. Good value for the money and a pleasant place to stay. Close to several places to eat and places to shop. Easy access on and off the interstate.

Stayed here as mid point from my house to Morgantown while attending WV football game. Wish I brought my swim trunks as the pool is fantastic. Good location and Henny's next door is a great place for lunch or dinner.
