My husband & I are from Pilot, VA. Last week we had traveled to Floyd to watch some races & w/out our GPS got turned around & ended up at the bottom of a mountain in Roanoke, completely the opposite direction we needed to go. We drove & happened upon a Waffle House for breakfast & were told the hotel next door was a decent one. We were so tired & went next door to the hotel. A lovely young lady greeted us at 3 a.m. and after hearing our story of wrong direction told us she was sure we would be very comfortable there. We inquired about cleanliness and safety. She told us the housekeeping staff had been there for many years & the rooms were kept in top shape. She showed us the signs showing they have 24 hour survelleance cameras & said there was rarely ever trouble there & they were family owned in business since the 50's!!!!! She told us there would be a light continental bfkst starting at 6 am. She gave us shampoo, razors, toothepaste& even a comb for the two hairs on my husbands head ;). We were only missing a toothbrush...not so bad. She offered us the wife password which we didn't need but were pleased to see how updated they were with wifi & many cable channels & free hbo. We had a wonderful rest, very comfy beds and pillows, fresh clean smelling room and everything we needed. Next time we are lost in Roanoke we know where to go. Thank you to the nice lady on night shift and Colony House for making us feel safe and comfortable.
