My sister and I were travelling and we desperately needed to find a place to stay for the night, as we were exhausted. We called the Howard Johnson's in Beckley, WV, as we were sitting in the parking lot. We wanted to see if they had the type of room we needed: smoking, two beds, first floor. We were told that they did, made the reservation and paid ($93.00 w/AAA discount). We go in to get our room key and are told that there are no rooms on the first floor, but they have one on the second floor and there is no elevator. No thanks. We left and stayed at the Hampton.

Howard Johnson's did call me back and I am going to receive a refund, but this was very stressful when you are looking for a place to stay at 10:00p and you've been on the road for nine hours.

In April of 2013 we were traveling back from Myrtle Beach and got stuck in a flash snowstorm. We had a room booked in Charleston, but we knew we wouldn't make it. So we ended up getting one at Howard Johnson in Beckley. It's not the most fancy room you will ever see, but it served it's purpose for the night. A lot better looking than I pictured it to be.

Room Tip: Not bad for a quick stopover, restaurants are plentiful around the hotel.

Nothing fancy but our room was clean. We paid $71 (before taxes) with AARP Card. The breakfast offered wasn't much (toast, Cornflakes, Fruit loops, bagels and orange or apple juice). Staff were friendly. We just wanted a clean room with shower and hot coffee; this hotel was fine for our purposes.

The one thing I can say about this stay that was nice was the night clerks. They were both super friendly and was the only thing about this visit that was great. I would rate the service as excellent, but we had the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door and we got woken up at 9:30 in the morning to her opening the door to come in, "I come back later" she yells as she closes the door. Cigarette burns on the comforter, in our non smoking room. As other people have reviewed, the second floor is super hot from the dryer up there, and the whole hallway stinks of cigarettes. Old coffee grounds/water in the coffee maker, ring in the bottom of it. Holes in the wall from where towel racks used to be, leaving no where to hang them except on the door knob. Mold/rust on the ring in the tub. Some weird gross looking hand print on the headboard, I don't want to know what kind of substance was on their hand to leave a hand print that looked like that... but just GROSS. I wish the service made up for this lack of cleanliness, but it just doesn't. Shell out some more dollars and stay at one of the 5 surrounding hotels.

Room Tip: Choose a different hotel.

Just got back from the HOJO Beckley. Check In was great. We got the room off Hotwire and the staff took really great care of us. No problems with getting a room like requested. The hotel is just off the Interstate and with in walking distance of several restaurants. We choose Outback.
No elevator, but no problem. All rooms interior entrance. Breakfast wasn't anything to talk about. Cereal, toast, bagels. It was the first time I've had to get milk out of an actual milk carton and "share". Usually It's in a canister, but the milk was in a gallon jug, in the fridge. Weird. Hotel was clean as far as I was concerned. I've stayed in way better for less and worse for more. I got a comfortable nights rest and wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Room Tip: Get ground floor, no elevator. Don't expect much for breakfast.
