Motel 6 Roanoke
Ranked #25 of 40 Hotels in Roanoke
Reviewed August 14, 2012

As my wife so eloquently put it, it was "the most motel-ish Hampton Inn we have ever stayed in". And we've stayed in quite a few.

Pulling in to this one's parking lot you are immediately struck by the worn out, used-to-be look of the place. But checking in was pleasant enough with the lobby and the breakfast area kept to the standards of the best Hampton Inns.

The room location was ground level with an outside entrance allowing us to park directly in front of our room being ideal so not to have to tote up stairs the massive amount of luggage my wife packed. (Just kidding honey)

Stepping into the room, though, things began to drift downhill. A damp, moldy odor lingered as the air conditioner pumped a full force arctic wind throughout the room. The carpet had an edge of dampness to it as if it was cleaned just minutes before our arrival.

The room itself was very spacious with a large clean, well cared for bathroom including both a tub shower and a stand up shower. The king size bed was firm and spacious. Unfortunately you could hear the highway traffic roaring during the night, but I was so tired it didn't bother me that much.

Breakfast the next morning was very good being handled by a nice upbeat staff and the motel is within mere minutes of downtown. But the bottom line is I would rather be further away from downtown in a nicer place... but if every nice place in town was sold out I guess I would stay there again.

Maybe....

As a Hilton Diamonds member, I have become quite accustomed to the policies of the Hampton Inn as htis is the primary brand I stay at regularly for business. This hotel is by no means is up to the Hampton Inn standards. The staff is VERY rude, both on the phone and when I arrived in person. The hotel is outdated, the sheets are disgustingly used and I felt as if I were staying at a Motel 6 in Harlem. Absolutely horrible, normally I would ask for the 100% guarantee, so that I would not have to pay a dime... However I decided to save myself the aggravation of speaking to the utterly wretched staff on the phone again, as a simple request for more towels resulted in opposition, attitude, and unprofessionalism. I would rather sleep in my economy rental next time in the middle of the airport runway then step foot on this property and give them another dime. My advice to anyone who may be considering staying here: STEER CLEAR LIKE IT'S THE PLAGUE

We broke up an eight hour road trip from Washington D.C. to South Carolina by pulling off the highway and staying at this motel.

What We Liked:
--It is conveniently located right off the highway.
--The room was very large and there were two showers and two sink areas.
--Free breakfast.
--The folks behind the desk and in the breakfast area were very helpful and friendly.

What We Didn't Like:
--The sheets were pretty worn.
--You may get a a non-smoking room, but there were a few smokers smoking on the walkway outside their rooms. Because it is a motel, our room was exposed to this and our room smelled like cigarette smoke.

Overall, I recommend this Hampton Inn because it was clean, convenient, and it was a good deal.

I ended up staying at this hotel because my flight was cancelled and my ride from Blacksburg, VA had already left. The hotel was clean and the people were nice enough but there was nothing special about it. Most hotels I've stayed at have some little POP or something that makes them unique but this hotel was pretty blah. I just needed a bed for one night though so it worked.

This property is a bit older with exterior entrances to rooms, but the premises are well maintained. The room was clean and bedding was up to current Hampton standards. We were looking for something convenient to the Blue Ridge Parkway ... not sure this really fit that bill, but the maps and guides related to the BRP are not the most informative. The stay was fine and breakfast was up to, if not perhaps better than, typical Hampton standards.

Room Tip: Be aware that all rooms have exterior entrances. Close to lobby seems better to me than something o...

This Hampton Inn is right by Highway 81 and close to several restaurants. The room was spacious and very well appointed. We only stayed one night but I would have been happy if I had stayed longer. The staff was very friendly and courteous, the breakfast is in a very attractive lobby and had lots to choose from. The nightly rate with CAA/AAA discount was $89.99 plus tax. If you consider the cost of breakfast in a restaurant and factor this into the price, this was quite reasonable. Not only did we have breakfast in the lobby, but they gave us two bags of food to take with us on the drive. The highway side has the view - we were on the other side, which was very quiet. They also have an exercise room and guest laundry facilities.
