“Exactly what you expect from a motel”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Staff was friendly and helpful, room was clean, all was fine. Convenient location just next to the toll gates and a few restaurants (also they have some discounts for nearby restaurants but I didn't try them).

This has got to be one of the grossest places I had ever stopped at. We were on our way home from Virginia Beach and it was getting pretty late so we decided to just stay overnight somewhere. First of all, I hate the way motels look and typically go to hotels that I am familiar with. I walked in with my husband to front desk and it just felt "dirty" in the foyer/eating area. We got our room, walked in and I felt scared, lol. Needs updated something terrible! Being the hotel inspector I am, I started looking over everything! We pulled back the bedding and there was little hair and specks of dirt all over the sheets!!!!! Very unclean! Went and told the attendant and she asked if we wanted to try another room...uh no thanks! She apologized and said, "Oh, I think someone just left that room." REALLY?!?!? and you didn't change the bedding?? Price is right for the motel if you dont mind sharing bedding with the last people who stayed. I would say, either go to the comfort Inn next door or sleep in your car!!!

This motel is very run down, in need of cosmetic renovation and better customer care. The room I stayed in had ugly striped carpeting, a pastel-colored upholstered couch and an ugly bedspread with a busy print that matched neither the carpet nor the couch. Having the couch was nice, one good quality among many bad. The TV was small, although many channels were available. The bathroom mirror was weird, a many-pane style that was hard to use, with ugly black and gold "marbling" on the sides. The thin blanket on the bed was stained, I'm guessing because this hotel is pet-friendly. Paid too much to stay at such an ugly place.

Room Tip: This motel is located directly off I-76. Convenient location, but not pretty.

My husband and I stayed here for one night along with 5 other couples. We were a part of 22 people who are bikers who came to visit Shanksville and the Flight 93 Memorial. The others stayed at a different hotel and I sure wish we did too. We are all professional people, not what most think about bikers. Well traveled and I am a full time nurse and part time travel agent.

This place is very run down, don't expect anything much. Less than your typical motel setting. Road into the motel is very difficult to find and full of pot holes...had to watch so we didn't get swallowed up in the holes while on the bike.

Check in was easy and the lady at the counter was polite and friendly but that was not enough to make up for the poor condition of this motel.

Got to our room 147 and it was dirty, dirty, dirty. Outside debris all over the carpet, leaves and chunks of dirt. The beds were very hard and the bedspreads were full of cigarette burn holes. There were chunks of unidentifiable black substance on top of both beds.

The vanity/sink is outside the bath area and the faucet handles were those glass starburst patterns and had mold between all the glass folds. There was a good 1/8 of an inch thick yellowish crud crusted on the faucet between the handles and the water spigot. They vanity had a large piece of the wood molding missing and the mirror surrounded by the old type mirror squares with the variegated gold throughout the mirror pane. The bath area is very small but the tub was clean. The top of the tub surround did have mold. The corners of the bath and vanity area looked like they had not been cleaned in a year.

The ironing board did not have a cover on it so if you wanted to use it you had to put a towel on the board to avoid ironing in the pattern of the holes in the metal ironing board. The iron did work well.

The fridge and the microwave worked well and both were clean. We checked the mattress out and did not see any sign of unwanted creatures but, alas, in the morning I had multiple itchy bites marks on both hands and arms, my face, forehead and neck. Unfortunately we did nothing about it until we got home and called them to report the bites. They thanked us and called us back later to report they found nothing in the room. These bites followed the typical pattern of bed bug bites and looked exactly like them. But, without seeing the bugs the hotel will not refund our money.

This is a pet friendly hotel and it showed on the carpet...very dirtily with large old black stains all over. Hummm, could the stains have been pet excrement stains? Who knows?

The continental breakfast was OK, offering coffee, donuts, bagels but in limited quantities.

The motel does have a nice pool, not very large but will do. Problem was pool closed at 9pm and we didn't get back until 10 to 9 so we couldn't use it.

One of the other couples in our group said their room was very dirty too and had large cobwebs hanging from the ceiling. Others in our group were satisfied with their rooms and had new carpet and decent bedspreads.

Last night we had a complication with a hotel booking meaning we had nowhere to go - we were meant to be way back on 70 before Washington to sleep that night but everywhere was booked so we kept driving. It got to 6am and we finally found this one. The owner generously gave us a discounted price since we weren't going to be in the room that long and let us stay till 2pm before checking out. We had been to other hotels and most were full but some wanted $90 and checkout at 11am! Rip off. So we really appreciated the generosity of this hotel a lot. We dealt with the owner and he was a nice man.

From the road this hotel looks really quaint and themed in the medieval kind of styling however on getting close up, it is a very tired little motel and the owners are aware of this and said they are planning on updating them in the near future.

Inside, it does have an old smell. The room went really dark tho when the curtains were pulled which blocked the daylight outside for us which was perfect. The decor fitted the theme and was tidy and clean. The carpet does need to be replaced, the sink plug thing didn't work, the shower was strong but had a squirt coming out sideways hitting the curtain. Once this is refreshed a bit it will be much better.

The sheets, linen and towels all looked a bit tired also and like they have seen better days.

Summary of Good points: It had a small fridge/freezer - which is fantastic. It had a microwave. Air conditioned. Great pressure on the shower. You can park right outside your room and unpack the car easily - none of this two storey nonsense! The bed was comfortable. It had a ledge along the wall which is such a great idea to put suitcases and other things so you don't have to bend as far down. Great location right by the turnpike on and off point. The room can go really dark. Free Internet!

Once refreshed this hotel will have a lot more potential. We are grateful for this hotel providing us a much needed place of rest in a busy season of booked out hotels.
