Had some weekend activities in late February in Charleston, WVa., and was not going to be spending much time in a hotel room. Son and I just needed a place to bunk.
Knights Inn was great for us and at about $35 per night before taxes. Despite what has been said in the other reviews, I thought our room was clean, the beds were sizable and very comfortable.
In the room, there were what looked like a brand new 27-inch Sylvania television with a remote that worked and many channels, a new clock radio, and a new air conditioning/heating unit that worked great. There were no burned-out light bulbs, something I cannot say about some of the classier hotels I have visited. There was plenty of room for the two of us and the room included a table and two chairs.
There was free continental breakfast in the lobby. Well, actually doughnuts. But we were happy with them. There was also coffee and tea and orange and apple juice.
All of the staff we ran into during the weekend were friendly and I had a nice talk with one of the cleaning ladies about why we were visiting in Charleston -- a martial arts tournament. Also, I had called that Friday morning to alert them that we would be a late arrival and when we pulled in that evening, our check-in card was sitting out and ready to go.
Upon leaving, we filled up one of our coolers with ice so we had cold drinks for the five-hour trip home.
Now here is what I did not like: Although the shower was great, the bathroom with the shower and commode was quite cramped. The sink was outside of the bathroom, so each morning my son got to watch me shave. I would not want to put up with that for a week, but for a night or two I guess it was bearable.
The motel is in a busy area with lots of places to eat and with gas stations and stores. Since my teenage son and I were on a "road trip" without mom and sister, we decided to visit Hooters for the first time!
We will have our same activity in Charleston next February. And I would not hesitate to stay at the Knights Inn again.
