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.

My wife and I stayed here for two nights while visiting the Spencer Black Walnut Festival. The room caw large, clean and very quiet, despite being in close proximity to the interstate. There is a nicely maintained indoor pool and spa as well as a well equipped gym. Breakfast was included in the price and included fresh pancakes, scrambled eggs, outstanding cinnamon rolls and biscuits and wonderful sausage gravy. Will definitely stay here again if given the opportunity.

My wife and I stayed here on our way home from Myrtle Beach. It was very clean, comfortable and easy access to and from I-77. The breakfast was fast, sufficient and nice to have. It would be nice if there were a few more restaurant choices within walking distance. The last thing i feel like doing after an 8+ hour drive is having to get back in the vehicle to find someplace to eat, but otherwise, a great place.

We stayed in a queen suite room for 2 nights. The room was very large with 2 queen beds, 1 sofa sleeper, a small sink and refrigerator. The cup boards were stocked with paper products and drinking cups, we also had a microwave. The lobby area had a large room where a breakfast buffet was served. It included, assorted juices, yogurt, scrambled eggs, biscuits, sausage gravey, hot cinnamon buns, assorted cereals, mild, coffee, tea. The pool and hot tub were a hit with the kids and teenages. It was a very good experience and I would highly recommend staying here if you are in Ripley Wv.

Room Tip: The queen suite sleeps up to 6 people comfortably

We spent one night at this hotel on the way from upstate SC to Akron OH. We arrived around 10pm and were able to check in quickly and get to our room. We had a 2 queen suite for my wife, 2 boys and myself. There was plenty of room and it was very clean and comfortable. We got a great nights sleep thanks to how quiet the hotel was. Breakfast was good with the automatic pancake maker providing some entertainment. We checked out early so did not get to try any of the other amenities.

Room Tip: The hotel is away from any busy roads so noise should not be a factor for any room.
