“Nice, clean, vintage motel to stay in on historic National Road”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

My husband and I stayed at Twin Pines Motel in June 2012. The motel is on the historic National Road. We were traveling late at night and other places were full; we found this place only by using Garmin for a suggestion of nearby motels. We like 'historic' motels and honestly, it was the only place in a reasonable price range that still had rooms. A nice older lady greeted us there, I have a feeling this is a family business. There is a house on the premises (the office) and I am sure the family lives there. Since we are interested in historic roads and sites along them, we asked about the history of the motel. She said it was built after World War II by a man who got out of the Navy, and her family bought it later. She even gave us two postcards of the motel that were probably printed in the 50s. I think that is when this place was in its prime. It was called Twin Pines because two huge tall pine trees used to be in front of the motel (they had old photographs on the wall in the office). This place was built before the Interstate so many a traveler along the National Road has stayed here. The room was very clean, comfortable, very firm bed and soft pillows. Our room was very small; the one queen bed took up most of the room, and there was only room for a small nightstand, chair and a dresser that the TV sat on. The TV was an older model but got a terrific picture and they got many TV channels. There are no toiletries except towels and soap. The A/C worked fine. Blanket on bed was rough, not soft, but that was OK. You could tell, though, that the rooms have been remodeled. It was nicely painted, new tile and looked very nice and modern inside. There is a pool outside as well and an ice machine.

This place could be really cute if it were fixed up. The doors to the rooms are in badly need of paint and the parking lot was really torn up, looks like it has not been paved for many years. The outside could use a little paint too. The inside carpet could use a good cleaning, a few spots here and there. I am being a little generous with four stars here, but the price was reasonable (about $58 a night) and it was very clean and we slept well. That's all one can ask for. We think it is more fun to stay in 'vintage' motels, gives you a little sense of history, and the lady was nice and told us some history and we got vintage postcards. So, four stars it is!

Very little amenities, but they have just gotten internet service you can use via wifi from a personal device/laptop.

Other than that, no microwave provided and coming in the rooms not permitted otherwise. May or may not have mini fridge for use, but is close to freeway and to town. Parking lot needs work.
