My partner and I stayed here on a recent trip to see Va Tech beat Nebraska (Go Hokies!). We weren't expecting a great deal of amenities, but there are a few basics that any hotel/motel should provide. The water pressure was virtually non-existent in the shower. And I don't mean that it was merely a light flow. Literally one stream of water came out of the shower head. It took nearly 5 minutes just to get wet! For $150 a night, I at least expected I could take a nice, hot shower, especially after driving 5 hours from DC.
We informed the front desk, and they assured us that this would be fixed. It was not fixed during the duration of our stay.
The room overall was decently sized, and the bed was moderately comfortable, no complaints there. What was problematic was the fact that the door to the room didn't close easily. You had to really pull it shut in order to make sure it was locked. It didn't leave us with a great sense of security since the rooms open up to the outside, motel-style. The TV was also purported to be new, but was just a CRT flat screen that was probably bought wholesale circa 1999. I wasn't expecting a HDTV necessarily, but I thought it was funny to upgrade equipment with tv's that pretty much obsolete.
The staff also really seemed to lack any knowledge about the surrounding area. We asked for dining recommendations, and the front desk had nothing to offer. The front desk was pretty dismissive at check out as well, when I informed them that the shower STILL wasn't fixed. Rather than "I am so sorry," it was just "OK, I'll let the manager know." You should also know that if you are stuck with a smoking room like we were, it smells, regardless of what they tell you.
I guess it's a seller's market during football season, and they can charge what the market bears. I was just let down by the experience. I wish I would have paid more to stay at a nicer hotel.
