This is absolutely the worse place I have stayed in my 73 years on this fine earth. In placing my reservation, I was basing it on a 7.2 rating at the booking site. Everything was horrible, the lobby was filled with junk, the staff didn't know how to give us a receipt, the floors in the room were spongy, the carpet stained, the curtains so thin they were transparent, the bathroom was moldy, and dirty, we asked for a key so we could go out and they didn't have one, we told the staff that the shower drain was plugged, so he gave us a plunger. It was late when we got there and a fair distance to the next town or we would not have stayed. DO NOT STAY HERE, it is a dump. It should be condemned.
Stayed one night at the Mountaineer Motel over the 4th of July weekend! Ugh! Four adults, we had two rooms. They looked as if they had not been cleaned in a week or so. The ceiling tiles were stained, the bathrooms had cobwebs and was dirty. The carpets were lumpy and badly stained and gross. The furniture was very old, broken and not clean. There was a big gap around the door to the room. For some reason the beds had new looking clean linens and bed spreads...if not for that I would have slept in our truck. I get this is a country motel in a very small town...but I was not prepared for it to be that gross! Drive a little further to Davis or Thomas...don't stay here!!!!
This motel is like many old motels on Rt 55 that were built before Interstate 68 bypassed much of the traffic out of the area. The receptionist was very polite, but you have to call a phone number listed on the door after hours to get him to come to the office. The room was comfortable but the carpet was worn. The bed was comfortable but somewhat low to the floor. The bathtub was large. The room had a microwave and a refrigerator. The room does not have a thermostat, and it appears that the heating or cooling is set in the central office. The room remained very warm on a very cold night. The television internet was good, and the internet, while slow, was good for an isolated area.
Word of caution: The next morning we drove to Morgantown, WV, and we did not see a single hotel fifty miles west of this motel on Route 50. The nearest town of any size on Route 50 west of Mt Storm is Grafton, and it is at least on hour and a half away through some of the windiest road you will ever see through an isolated area known for severe winter weather. There are two hotels in Mt. Storm. If you are tired and need to stop to spend the night, you had better grab one of the hotels in Mt. Storm.
