we have stayed here on and off for 10 or more years This was our worst visit. Other visits were fine. Bugs: On check in, the bedside light did not work, cord was unplugged, while looking for the cord plug I found an empty red bull can behind the bedside table along with about 10 dead bug bodies. We then... More

I unfortunately stayed at this hotel for two nights. The beds were lop sides, room carpet filthy, and NO HOT WATER. The front desk during the day was unhelpful and rude. She shrugged off the issue of no hot water. When checking in, the first floor hallways had bad odour of cigarette smoke. There are many hotels 5-10 minutes into... More

Always a nice clean room, friendly staff. Just coffee. Nice and quiet. I would be lost if I could not stay here. Nowhere else in a 20 mile radius I would stay. Make sure you have a GPS that works if you arecoming at night,it can be difficult to find. Up on a hill.

Very nice place to stay. Clean and comfortable rooms. We have stayed here twice and there has never been many people staying here. But we are always put around the same spot, the top of the stairs. Which would be ok if the walls were not paper thin and the people were actually spread out instead of all right together.... More

The room was spacious and clean and we were generally happy with the accommodations. We were not, however, able to access the internet while there. It seemed that this had been an intermittent problem for folks for a while. They did knock off $5 from my bill when requested to discount my rate due to wifi problems. We stayed on... More

Nice room, very clean, comfortable bed, quiet AC, thin walls (there was quite a bit of noise in the corridor), no breakfast. Considering that there was no breakfast, I thought it may have been a bit overpriced.

Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful in this tiny town in the middle of the beautiful mountains. The room and hotel are nice and clean, nothing fancy but comfortable. Microwave and fridge, television was dated but worked just fine and they had a lot of channels available. Bathroom and floor was very clean and the water was very good.... More

Three bicycle riders and I came for the NC Mountains to the Coast bike ride that started in Sparta, NC. This was the closest hotel that had vacant rooms (about 10 miles away). There were a number of bicycle riders here the night we stayed. The lobby and rooms were absolutely clean. The parking lot looked like it had recently... More
