“Only if you need pet-friendly”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2011

This is an old, tired motel. Minimalist but adequate. As noted, pet friendly. Staff is indifferent, breakfast almost non-existant. Blankets very old and worn. But the place was clean. When we went into the room, our dog immediately found a gap at a corner of the baseboards that he found very, very interesting. What was in there? Don't want to know. Stuffed the hole with one of their towels. Better off stopping earlier, or going a little further.

I stayed at the ABV Inn in St. Clairsville with my crew (6-10 folks) for three stints of roughly 9 nights each.

The rooms were strangely variable, but clean. Most of the shower heads curved upwards, which is useful for those of us over 6 foot tall. All the rooms have mini fridges and most have microwaves. The TVs are the most up to date, but still functional. They have numerous internet routers providing strong signal in nearly all of the rooms. They do have HBO, but for some reason the channel has a really irritating "HUMMM" in the background.

The hotel is often filled with other contractors and workers, who often congregate after work sipping on beer. However, they were all curteous... including my own crew. On one end of the hotel the highway noise could bother some folks, though to me it was merely white noise.

The staff was extremely nice to us and helped continuously book my stay throughout my project. The housekeepy staff is diligent and keep the rooms in good order, despite the property being clearly aged in many cases.

This the place we like to stay at when we travel to Wheeling Island Casino. 5 miles from the casino it is less pricey than staying at the casino hotel. Nothing fancy but it is a nice clean room. Outdoor pool in the summer and close to local shopping a good selection of dining places.. We always enjoy our stay here.

when in this area I usually stay at the holiday inn but it seems lately alot the the holiday inns have jacked their prices out of this world....I decided that it was time to find a new place in this area ...when I first stopped here I was somewhat leary due to the fact I have found some low end motels that were downright nasty...I was highly impressed with this place ..large parking lot for semis to park..pizza hut next door...room was spacious, extra clean,good wireless service, bed was ok( not great but not bad) a/c worked ok room had a kitchenette,table stove fully stocked cabinets cookware everything including the kitchen sink! I was impressed with the whole place..there were construction workers and one other truckdriver hanging out talking and everybody was freindly and having a good time...gentleman at front desk was very freindly and helpful...all this for $50.00....this is almost a 1/3 cheaper than there neighbor up the street....dont let looks be decieving this place is great...I will be back the next time Im in the area....

This hotel was just plain nasty - front desk service was good though, but room was dirty, bug infestations, occupants hanging outside the rooms drinking beer, and to top it off, an "escort" services van dropped off some "workers" just as I was leaving. I would rather sleep in my car on the side of my road - at least then I know I wouldnt get bitten by bugs.

Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments and we are glad to hear you were happy with our front desk service. We do have a shuttle service for the power plant workers that stay with us yearly to help them save on transportation costs, this is not an escort service, but a way for us to help out our guests. We also provide a picnic area for people to enjoy during the summer months and occasionally people do drink beer out there, we are sorry if this was an issue for you. As far as the bug issue, we are an exterior corridor hotel and when doors get left open, flying bugs do get in and we apologize that this was a problem. We do have a pest company that comes once a month to take care of any issues we may have.

The only bad thing about this hotel was it was priced a little too high. We were in town for the Beast of the East baseball tournament and it was 288 for 3 nites. A little on the steep side for an average hotel. The rooms were okay, nothing fancy, the frig was nice to keep the gatorade cold. Had plenty of towels and such for the room. Other than the price, it was okay.

Thank you for leaving you input for other travelers to review. We are happy that you were pleased with your stay. The Beast of the East is a major event in the area and all hotels generally book up a year in advance. We are one of the lowest, if not the lowest price hotels in the area and we are sorry you were not happy with the rate. If you come back next year, please review all of the rates in the area and we are certain you will find that our rate is the best. Thanks again for taking the time to leave your comments.

My work often requires me to change locations with just a few day's notice, so when I got the word I needed to be in the Wheeling area ASAP, I turned to Trip Advisor. Not only did I need a safe place to stay, but needed to bring my two substantial dogs. I've been here for a week, and felt it was time to comment.

The positive customer comments are right on target. Although dated, the facility is very clean and well-maintained. My little kitchenette is just the right size. Not only do I have a desk, I have a little dining table and a love-seat. (Well, the dogs have the love-seat. I brought a throw blanket from home to keep the hair down.)

The room is surprisingly clean. It's not luxurious by any means, but very comfortable. Far better than you'd expect in this price range. Even the bed is comfy. (Not upscale, but not awful, either!)

The staff is courteous and helpful. I asked to have the thermostat for the heat/ac unit checked in my room, and the problem was addressed right away.

My neighbors on either side are oil and gas construction contractors, but have been very quiet and courteous. (Except they get up a lot earlier than I do and the rumble of their big diesel 4WDs is louder than any alarm clock!) If I am still here during warmer weather, I'll update my comments if there's any change.

And did I mention the value? You cannot beat the combination of low price and clean surroundings! I will stay here for the next several weeks without any regrets.
