I decided on Thursday to take a quick roadtrip on Sunday and Monday of Columbus Day weekend to see the leaves and other sights of West Virginia. I found the Morning Glory Inn with a Google map search, called, and a quick chat with Rod ascertained that the (only) dog room was available Sunday night. He mentioned it had twin beds, so I invited a friend and off we went.
We enjoyed everything about our stay - stopped on the way in at Woody's BBQ Shack and picked up a rack of ribs and sides for a good price, got checked in, took a little stroll, then chowed down on a great meal. Our hosts were exactly the right balance between welcoming and unobtrusive - warm and informative, but not all over you like some are. The room was fine, good-sized and very comfortable, all the usual amenities and everything functional and as expected. A mini-fridge was provided in the room, along with a coffeemaker in the entryway just outside (this room shares an entrance door with the laundry room, with the added attraction of inside access to the kitchen, which has a microwave and a big refrigerator, both available to use as well.) We didn't use the TV, but there was one with info about satellite and DVDs to get from the main sitting room (which we also didn't really use, but it looked nice). We slept great, enjoyed the breakfast - a good continental with scrambled eggs to order that morning - and really enjoyed a nice long walk up the hill behind the inn. It's a gravel road, with a house here and there, and on our 3-mile+ walk on Monday morning we didn't see a single car or for that matter another person, just a couple of deer, a lot of birds and a few other critters here and there.
I'd recommend the Morning Glory Inn to anyone who wants a comfortable place to stay with all the basic amenities, for a good price.
