The Grayson Inn is just about the only place to stay in Grayson County, now that the Davis-Bourne Inn has closed. :(

We had 4 rooms booked. All of them were relatively clean and quiet, if a little dated, and the beds were comfortable. However, when we arrived, the windows in two of the rooms were open and in one of the other rooms the window was unlocked. Being on the first floor, that didn't make us feel too secure. (So if you get a first floor room, check your window locks!) The other room had a strong smell of cigarette smoke.

Our big complaint was lack of breakfast, given the cost of the room. Of course, being the only place to stay, they don't have to give you breakfast, do they?

On the upside, the front desk staff was pleasant and efficient. We got a good recommendation for a place to eat dinner & breakfast.

Foremost, this hotel isn't worth the $65 they charge a night. I've stayed in nicer for less and gotten free breakfast. One of the least comfortable beds I've slept in. Although this hotel is in a quite location, the walls are thin, letting you hear everything going on in the next room.

Stayed one night at the Grayson Inn. Rates are reasonable but $25.00 for a pet is a little expensive. The place we stayed the night before only charged $10.00. The room and bathroom was clean. The sheets were a bit thin and the carpet should be replaced. It had several stains and burnt places in it. The staff was very nice. I thought we would at least get a continental breakfast but nothing. My husband made coffee in the room but no tea bags for me.

We were climbing Mt. Rogers in Grayson State Park and there are not a lot of handy hotels around, so we stayed at the Grayson Inn & Suites. It's a typical economy hotel with tube TV, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, but $75 is too much. We were advised upon arrival that breakfast had been discontinued. We were given keys that didn't work. We were directed to a pizza place for dinner that was just plain bad (not that there are a lot of options in Independence). We were the only car in the parking lot when we turned in (but there were 7 in the morning when we left). This suggests they could have spread their guests around, but...

Nooo, couldn't do that. And, of course, at midnight our neighbor starts blasting his TV. I went to the office, but it's closed 11pm to 7am. I attempted to call TV dude, but the phone face was BLANK with no instructions how to make a call. I took a chance and dialed the room number but got somebody random and woke them up (oops, sorry). I banged on the wall and TV dude reduced his volume by 1/2 but given the paper-thin walls that was only partially helpful.

The capper was the next morning. I asked if I could make a photocopy. "Sure, my colleague will be with you in a while once she's settled in." Um, not like there was a long line of guests, breakfast to look after or, in fact, anything else going on. His colleague emerged and said "Sure, we can make a copy, that'll be $2 for the first page and $.50 per page after that." HUH??

No doubt we were a bit unlucky with all of this, but be forewarned.

We stay regularly at Grayson Inn. Rooms are always very clean with reasonable rates. We especially enjoy taking our two dogs there. Staff is always courteous and accommodating.
Nice to have wireless internet and cable tv.

Room Tip: Centrally located to New River and New River Trail, Appalachian Trail, and Grayson Highlands. Beau...

The staff are very friendly. The hotel rooms are spacious and have refridgerators and microwaves. Also free internet access. Very clean and comfortable. Prices are reasonable! We've stayed here several times while visiting friends and the hotel is always consistent!

Room Tip: If you ask for a room facing the back you get a view of a green hill and trees.
