Glen Allen, Virginia
Reviewed 30 September 2015

I travel to several AKC Agility Competitions & Training/Seminars around the country. I was lucky to locate this mountain gem that was pet friendly, safe area to walk late at night with my pets and did not overcharge for their stay. The breakfast buffet was the old fashioned kind that I truly enjoyed. My room was very clean, up-to-date and...

Avoid this hotel on Thursdays through the weekend if a premium on quietness and restfulness is placed. In this manner, an individual will be shielded from onsite bar room noise and obnoxious, boisterous, intoxicated football crowd during the football season.

This hotel was one of the very few hotels in southern Virginia that accepted pets so we booked with them, only staying 1 night. The staff and hotel seemed pretty nice. The room rate and free breakfast were good. Our room was NOT great. No carpet on the floor, not particularly clean and it reeked of cigarette smoke.

This was by far disgusting. After a 3 hour drive we get to our room to find blood spots on the comforter and BOOGERS on the sheets! We stayed in a double bed suite because all the king suites were full, so we had another bed to sleep in. They offer a "free continental" breakfast that is not even worth...

The room needed to be vacuumed, the sink was backed up, the tub was very old cast iron and needed updated. The rooms need to be updated; very tired looking. The beds were fine and the sheets were clean. The staff was warm and friendly. Internet was good but breakfast had canned fruit and no whole grains. Offered grits, gravy,...

Room was at rear of motel, but had to park in front after I went out. Room was clean and air conditioning was was working. The room had cable TV and Wi-Fi. Motel operated a bar for local patrons and had 2 uniformed security guards stationed outside. There was a short line, but it did not appear worth any cover...

The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was surprisingly good, but this hotel still falls short of my expectations for a Best Western. The first room we were checked into had filthy floors. They were laminate hard wood, and clearly they hadn't been cleaned after the last guests. We were given a new room which was cleaner, but it...
