We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. I will pass the kind words along to the staff. We hope to see you again soon!
What a great hotel! The Western Front is an awesome boutique hotel in the mountains of Virginia. A great location for hiking, boating, and ATVing. Also, an hour from Bristol, Kingsport and several state parks. The staff is pleasant and very helpful. The hotel is VERY dog friendly and we saw several families with dogs during our stay. The rooms are big but also comfortable.
A few tips - our room was very bright after sunrise - so if you are light sensitive, you may want to bring a sleep mask. The hotel is also an old building so the walls and floors are thin - so you do hear noises from other rooms but the nights we were there, it was quiet.
The rooms do have large refrigerators but NO microwave or coffee machines. I do understand you can request a Keurig for your room.
When we were there (November 2020), the onsite restaurant was closed due to COVID-19 - which is a shame since it received great reviews. The hotel owned bakery (across the street) is also closed. Within walking distance is a BBQ spot, pizza spot, and a microbrewery.
Overall, we highly recommend.
Thank you for taking the time to complete an online review for us. We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay. OUr staff takes pride in everything we do here, and we are so glad that it shows!
I stayed here with my three sons in a king suite to spend the weekend in Saint Paul and ATV on the Spearhead Trail. The hotel is in a historic building and is charming. Everything is decorated with thought and creativity. The king suite was plenty big for the four of us. Two in the king bed. Two in the pull-out couch. We had two large screen TVs for the boys to watch football in the morning before we headed out. We rented our Razor from the hotel and the staff had everything we needed, including throwing in a sheet to keep our bag from getting muddy. The Spearhead trail is a blast, and we spent all day sliding through mud and climbing rocky hills. We ate dinner at the brewery across the street and it was delicious. We spent the evening in our cozy hotel room watching scary Halloween movies. I can’t recommend this place enough for a family fun adventure!
We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. It sounds like you and your family had quite an adventure! I am so pleased to hear that you got to enjoy all the perks that our charming little town has to offer. We can't wait to see you and your family again!
We traveled to Saint Paul to see the fall colors. Thoroughly impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel, the friendliness of the staff and the size of the rooms. We were very comfortable there. While there is not a whole lot to do in Saint Paul itself, it was well situated to explore the area. There are not many food choices right in town. We ate at the Sugar Hill Brewery for dinner the first night and liked it so much we we ate there for the entire stay. Unfortunately, they don't serve breakfast. The hotel provides yogurt, fruit and granola bars etc which was enough for us. Would definitely stay again!
We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us! Fall is my absolute favorite time of year, I hope you got to enjoy all the beautiful colors that Virginia has to offer. We hope to see you again soon!
We stayed here on the first night of a long motorcycle trip. The staff was super friendly and helpful and the room was HUGE. 2 queen beds and a set of bunk beds in another room. The hotel is in an old apartment building and they have done an excellent job on the renovation.
The outdoor area has a fire pit, stage for music and plenty of room to just be outside. There are also patios on the second floor with tables for another place to relax. The game room has a pool table and dartboard, and gives you an indoor place to hang out if needed.
The front desk has off-road maps for the area available, and the hotel also rents 4-passenger side-by-sides. SW Virginia is a great place to ride motorcycles both on and offroad!
COVID has had some effect on the business as well as the town - the onsite restaurant has closed, but they are working on getting another restaurant to move in to the space. The coffee shop across the street has closed as well, but there is a brewery/restaurant just around the corner and a BBQ place right across the street.
I will definitely be back, and am planning a group gathering at the hotel sometime in the future.
WOW! Thank you for the great review! We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. I am thrilled to hear that you will be panning a group gathering, we would love to help you in anyway plan your trip.
The hotel is built around the "refurbished" items theme, and for the most part its pretty nice, head board of the bed was an old door, that kind of stuff... now, saying that... the mattress must have been too because it was very uncomfortable and lumpy, like someone slept on both sides for years and left it sagging with a lump down the middle and the mattress did not fit the box string it was on.. the bathroom door would not close unless you put your shoulder or foot into it.. only one of the windows was able to open the curtains, using a chain the you had to pull down to roll up the shade, felt like it was going to break with the amount of pulling you had to do to get it to work.. there was an alarm clock that would not keep time if you payed it.. there was suppose to be a breakfast in a bucket of bag or whatever since COVID eliminated real breakfasts.. was informed once we checked in that there was no breakfast at all now.. they rented UTV's for an arm and a leg that we opted out once we found out the prices, 10 minutes down the road we got them for half that price..
And the worst of it all?? The floors creaked so bad that you would think someone was in the room walking around your bed, you heard every person in the hotel walking around there rooms, the hallways, too and from there bathrooms.. horrible night time noise.. so, all in all it was a horrible stay.
Thank you for taking the time to compete an online review for us. I am sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We strive to make each and every guest enjoy their time at the property. COVID has changed many things as we all now, however we do offer a grab and go breakfast at the front desk each day. Our ATVs are leased from POLARIS and they set the pricing and supply us with new machines each year. We hope that you will come stay with us again in the future, and give us another opportunity to WOW you!
