I stayed here for 3 nights while I was in town to take the Virginia Bar Exam. The price was exceptionally cheap, which was the main reason I picked the place. The room was in bad shape - some of the paint was peeling and it had a funny smell. I wasn't terribly bothered by this because I had paid a dirt cheap rate. What did bother me, however, was that the staff seemed indifferent at best and unhelpfully rude at worst. For example, I asked the clerk checking me in to charge the room to a different credit card than the one I had used to make the reservation, but he refused, saying the computer wouldn't allow it. I refuse to believe that there's no way to change that; I'm guessing he just didn't want to do the work.
The hotel is right off I-81, and it seemed like it would be fine for people looking to crash for a night before continuing on in the morning. But it might not be the best place for people who are going to be in town for a few days.
