“What a place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

This is an absolutely beautiful hotel! The bar/lounge made great drinks to taste and the food was delicious. Rooms were very nicely appointed and very clean. The staff was exceptional, professional, and very friendly. We loved spending the night here and will certainly stay again when in the area. It made for a very relaxing night while on a long motorcycle vacation!

Room Tip: I cannot believe there are any "bad" rooms in this place!

If not for priceline and paying $65 a night plus $6 a night for parking, I would have been upset. The rooms were outdated and dingy, the bathroom was not the cleanest. I let my 15 month old run around the room without socks, big mistake. Within ten minutes the soles of her feet were, black, I mean black. The carpets looked a little dingy but did not realize they were that dirty. I was not very impressed nor slightly impressed with the place. Had I paid full price for the room I would have been upset.

On the plus side the rooms were large.

The only complaint I have, is that I requested a fridge in the room at the time of my reservation and didn't get that carried out. Other than that, the staff was very friendly, housekeeping came by twice (which is awesome for the late crowd such as ourselves), and the front desk was very helpful. I'd recommend this hotel for anyone wanting to stay close to downtown Morgantown.

Decided to stay overnight in Morgantown while driving home from DC to Ohio. I Pricelined this hotel and got it for $65. After the Priceline fees it came to about $75. For that price, it was a very good deal. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. I did have to pay $6 for parking, but didn't find that unreasonable for a more upscale hotel. The only complaint I had was that the carpeting in the hallway (4th floor) was horribly stained. For the life of me, I don't see how they would not change this. It makes an otherwise hotel look much cheaper than it really is. If you are going to stay here, try to Priceline it. You don't have anything to lose...and possibly a lot to save.

I reviewed this hotel and gave it 5 stars after a stay in January. We were back in August and it is still the best in Morgantown. The staff is well trained, rooms are great, and they keep it spotless. On the other hand, you have to pay extra for a breakfast (10 dollars and it's worth it), and there is usually a charge for parking in the garage. If you want the freebies, stay at a chain motel. But if you are looking for a classy joint, Waterfront Place is it.

Room Tip: Rooms with a river view are slightly more. Call the hotel and ask about discounts.

Stayed here on the way back to NC after dropping our son off at college in PA. Mom needed a nice place to cry and this was it. She thanked me for picking such a nice hotel in an area where you would not expect to find one. Hotel staff was friendly and accomodating. The Regatta Grill was great and very reasonably priced for a hotel. The atmosphere was very upscale and the bartender (Rob?) was great. Loved the walk along the river, very safe with runners, cyclists and dog walkers. The gym had lots of great machines and barbells upto 50-60 lbs. My wife used the spa and enjoyed it.

We stayed on the concierge level and received free breakfast buffet coupons which made it worth it. Otherwise, nothing special. The beds are sleep number and it was our first time sleeping on one - we did not like it. Otherwise, the room was very large, clean and had nice furnishings. The view of the river and WVU was fantastic. The concierge coffee was cold but the lounge was nice.

Overall, it was a great stay and will stay there again.
