Unless you are an AT Hiker who is 1. Completely exhausted and can sleep through constant noise 2. Have a sleeping bag/liner you can sleep in on top of the bed 3. Don't mind sharing the property with "parolee," bumpkin residents and 4. Non allergic to smoke, mold, fungus, vermin, etc. then don't stay here.
Apparently this property is under new management and has hired someone to enact repairs however, by now they could have actually cleaned the rooms and sheets and commenced greatly needed small changes to make this place habitable. Unless they do a complete renovation of all rooms, the grounds, and kick out the long term Pabst Blue Ribbon guzzling, pit bull parolee, derelict residents then this place will never be habitable.
-The sheets on both of our double beds were stained with blood spots and the floor was filthy. We slept on top of our beds in sleeping bag liners
-The wooden frame for my bed was broke in half so the mattress sagged as if I was sleeping in a bean bag chair
-A previous resident had left food in the mini fridge and the room cleaner apparently unplugged the fridge so we had to clear out smelly rotting food
-Despite being a non-smoking room, the room clearly reeked of smoke
-Constant noise from other guests throughout the night. We were awoken and frightened with a large bang in the middle of the night which we believe was caused by one of the colorful long term residents drunkenly running into (or being thrown into) our door
-The office staff were polite and helpful
-We were unintentionally entertained by one of the local residents - there are many who live here - who regaled us with tales of his multiple felony arrests and general shenanigans. My favorite line "I used to love that Raspberry Vodka but I found I was allergic to it. Kept waking up in silver bracelets" (referring to handcuffs). Wow.
Left me scratching my head:
-The lobby offers a tanning salon. Not sure where to go with this one....
Try the Plaza if you must stay in Pearisburg. The previously only other choice, the Rendezvous Hotel, burnt down several months ago while Mr. Felony was living there (yes, we heard that story as well).
