We got this from Hotwire! We will never use hotwire again. This motel was nothing like what they described. But for $60 motel in middle of virginia should be better than what we got. The ENTIRE building smells of smoke. The halls reak or cigarette smell. The room/kitchen was small, dark and resonably clean. The bathroom looked well used. I... More

Bad smell in the hall way, outlets didn't work right, bare wires hanging from the smoke detector phone didn't work had bare wires sticking out. Housekeeping rude and ignorant. Desk clerk rude said she used my aarp discount but she didn't. Parking is terrible. Had fleas in the room.

This hotel is conveniently located. That, however, is the only plus. The rooms are filthy. Stained carpeting, unknown fluids spattered on the walls, mold, and just general filth is what you can expect in the rooms. The room we stayed in had an ac unit that worked when it wanted to, a mini fridge that leaked all over the floor,... More

We stayed here 3 nights for a softball tournament this weekend. The hotel was a good deal and the location was close to the highway and lots of restaurants. That being said, the room did have a musty smell (there is no ventilation fan in the bathroom which may contribute to this). The room was clean and comfortable. We had... More

This hotel looks a lot better in pictures. Though the lobby is nice, once you walk back to the hallway the whole atmosphere changes. The lighting is very dim. Most of the lamps throughout the hall are out. The entire hotel smells terrible. It's filthy. The final straw for me was when I came across a roach in my room.... More

I got this room through Hotwire. I normally have a good experience using them. However, this time I was horribly disappointed. The lobby seemed okay, but the room had the most disgusting odor, the hallways were filthy, the residents wandering around were frightening. As a solo female traveler of 64 years old, I did not feel safe. I called Hotwire... More

We booked this hotel through hotwire, it was supposed to have a free breakfast and exercise room. When we got there we learned there was neither. The lobby was beautiful but when we got to our room it was not as the pictures on the internet showed. They had no spread on the bed as shown in the pictures but... More

Not much to say about this hotel. It is old, seems old, low quality, low priced, but clean room and comfortable bed. It has been made into an extended stay. Not in a good part of town, directly behind a Hooter's. Parking is in an unlit area and I was not comfortable leaving anything in the car in case of... More

This place has a huge roach and insect problem. We made a reservation online on a Sunday evening for a Wednesday stay...the web site listed it as a Clarion Hotel....IT WASN'T !! The name changed, no new signage on the building, and we drove around for a half hour looking for a Clarion that no longer existed. The first room... More
