“Awesome stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2011

I would definately recommend this hotel. I have stayed here 4 times, once for business the rest for pleasure. The staff are very accomodating and friendly. Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Concierage services are exceptional. Whenever I visit Morgantown - this is where I will always stay. Very affordable for what you get.

This hotel is a really great deal in a neat location.

We stayed for a reasonable rate and the room was so cozy with great linens. The room service was delicious.

The service and staff were terrific.. they could not have tried harder to accomodate us and answer questions we had about the area.
They park your car and keep in garage overnight for just 5$... they also shuttled us to town and back for free. this was such a bonus...

we would for sure stay here again.. it was just so easy.

I stayed in room 324 while traveling through WV. Room is in need of renovation. Section of ceiling in bathroom has exposed drywall and no paint. The tub fuacet is loose and pulls out of the wall. Flat screen tv but signal poor/ non digital? No fridge in room-just an empty cabinet. Room faces road and is noisy. Size of room is good just poorly maintained. If you get this room ask for another!

Hotel lobby and restuarants are nice but room is average. Self-parking is across the street. It is not covered from the hotel to the parking area. They offer valet. Olivierie's resturant has good Italian food and is reasonable priced. Walkway along river is currently closed. It is all ripped apart when I was their.

Room Tip: Don't stay in room 324

I have stayed at the Waterfront Place Hotel five times since it first opened. I have noticed that the rooms have progressively gone down hill. Paint peeling from the ceiling in the bathroom, the faucet for the tub pulls out two inches from the wall when you turn on the shower, carpet stained, in essence general wear and tear. No fridge in empty cabinet. Previous stays at this hotel the fridge was in the room but this time I was told by front desk that they could deliver a small fridge to the room but there is a $10 a night charge. Classy place. At the pool you will notice that the panelling on the ceiling, which were a neat way to cover the sanitation pipes when the hotel was new, are stained dark brown, broken and or missing. You can guess what caused the brown staining. The hotel is in need of a clean up!!

The hotel is located approx. five minutes off the highway. There are good restuarants within walking distance of the hotel. Follow the path (currently ripped up) that runs along the river towards town. Self parking for the hotels is a short walk outside.

This is a three star hotel that used to be a four star hotel.

WaterfrontGM, General Manager at Waterfront Place Hotel, responded to this review, April 19, 2011
Although we sincerely appreciate your feedback on your stay with us, I do find it interesting that you state you have stayed here five times and the rooms have gone down hill. We did a guest room renovation during 2010 that included new window treatments, ergonomic work desk and chairs, new 42 inch plasma HDTV's with credenza's and new bedding package. We are stated to put in new carpet in all guest rooms within the next year although we put new carpet in all guest corridors as well during our renovation last year. Additionally, the panels above the pool are there to provide sound proofing for the pool area as well as protect the piping from corosion due to the pool chemicals. The panels are actually being replaced next week during Easter week as we have to shut down the pool. Again, we appreciate your feedback but do have some concerns about the way in which you present our hotel as we have invested a great deal of money and time renovation our place over the past year.

The Waterfront Place Hotel was a surprising find on Expedia. The hotel sits near the river and is easily accessed by a main thoroughfare. The hotel itself was immaculate with amazing beds. Parking is free and people can walk up and down the river. A restaurant and lounge can be found on the lobby floor along with a small gift shop. The front office staff were very helpful and polite.

The hotel had a nice, cozy sized pool with a side whirlpool for relaxing. Towels and plenty of chairs were found around the pool. Definitely a nice place to hang out or just read.

The area of Morgantown includes the downtown city area, West Virginia University, the medical campus, shopping malls, and numerous restaurants. The downtown area has many eccentric small shops and restaurants.

Overall the hotel great with amazing beds, free wifi, a nice pool, and a good location.

Stayed Waterfront Place for about six weeks doing nearby business, Mondays thru Fridays. Also came back to stay for the AllGood Festival.

I have traveled and stayed long-term in hotels on six continents.

In terms of what I like: clean, friendly, efficient, I give it top marks.

Prices are okay all-around.

It's clean, spacious, and riverwalk is great for after-work exercise.

Nice staff treats you well from door-to-door -- but doesn't get up in your grill too much. Valets are nice college kids hustling for a buck.

The ladies behind the bars are pleasant and good sports fans. They know the local teams. I got to know them almost like neighbors at my local bar. I even saw WVU hoops coach Bob Huggins, my fave, in the lounge, which is my favorite WV hangout.

If only Amber would have come back to DC with me, it would have been perfect.

All Good!
