Overall, the hotel was fine. At the time the reservation was made, the hotel said breakfast was included. We were told there is no breakfast due to renovations. The hotel also did not offer a discount for this. So that was disappointing. The location was great for the Clay Center and right off the Interstate. Downtown was right there and... More

This isn't the Taj Mahal, but its quite a decent hotel for the money. We stayed for four nights at the end of October and were pleasantly surprised by its convenience and accessibility. All the best restaurants and bars are within easy walking distance, and its only a short drive across the bridge into the beautiful West Virginia wilderness. The... More

My assistant and I traveled to Charleston, WV to photograph a wedding and booked in advance based on the images online. We got there very late at night and most of the hotels in the immediate vicinity had no vacancies. As we went through the lobby, we were informed that they were renovating which was fairly obvious, and the clerk... More

The location is great and easy to get to. Parking was sufficient and well lit. The second floor rooms were clean and comfortable. Jim and Dorinda, front desk staff and housekeeping were very accommodating and easy to work with and exceptionally pleasant. The renovations made it difficult to enjoy our stay. Though they tried to keep down the dust, it... More

It took all of 90 seconds in the room for me to turn around, go back downstairs and demand a refund. And this was around 9:30-10pm after my husband and I, and our two very young children had spent the entire day in the car driving, if that tells you anything -- it was truly that bad and this was...

I was driving through Charleston and this was the only hotel that had rooms left. I got in very late and I'm pretty sure they sold out as well. As I was checking in the was another couple begging for a room as there was nothing else available in town. So to actually have had a room, I'm very thankful.... More

Although renovations are being made, this hotel was a very relaxing environment. Friendly staff, clean rooms, and a relaxing outdoor seasonal pool. I was told by maintenence staff that when the hotel was first built that there was a ballroom in the basement and that part of the renovations is to restore that ballroom. 😍 I will definitely be visiting...

Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Are renovating but only in the lobby. Bring a roll of paper towels because they don't have hand towels. Continental breakfast was next door at the Motel 6. It was good. Would stay again!

Our stay saw renovations in progress,which meant paint fumes and no Continental breakfast. The elevators are VERY small,but the room was clean,roomy and excellent. WiFi fast and easy to connect to I'd return and hope the renovations improve it even more.
