If you are heading south on Interstate 77 thru WVa and need to stop for the night, this is a pretty decent option. (I think it is like exit 145...only one for Ripley.) Now this is ONLY if you are heading south and have gone past exit 170. At Parkersburg/170 there is a Fairfield by Marriott Inn and Suites that is about $20 a night cheaper and FAR superior. But again if you missed it and need to stop, Ripley is OK and certainly better than your options for the next hour and a half. Downtown Charleston, WV is your next option and that is a REALLY bad option (Embassy Suites downtown but only if you must.) and after that it is Beckley till you have an option. If you are heading north on 77 skip Charleston and blow past Ripley if you can make it to the above mentioned in Parkersburg.
As for the Holiday Inn....pretty much the same as the rest.. Newer (maybe 5-8 years old) property with a lot of tile (snow covered boots) to the point it is a little hose it out sterile. But breakfast is standard and it is clean. The weak part was the room (About $150-160) w tax. This was the lowest of the Hol Inn Exps we have stayed at. Talk about industrial low budget. The walls and ceilings were popcorn sprayed (sprayed w plaster compound and points knocked down) and all the same color. No door on the closet space (two short wall dividers and a bar). Unwrapped cups. Half @$$ tile job and finish thru out. This place will need a room reno in half the time of others. Worst part were the beds. Foam mattresses that had amnesia after a life of huge travelers had removed the ability to ever pop back into shape. Bring a rope ladder to get out of the coffin pit.
So OK if you have to stop and better than rest to south but try to plan around for the Fairfield at exit 170 and be happier for it.
