The pictures uploaded are a small glimpse of the uncleanliness of this hotel . We booked for two nights and left after the first ... It was terrible , the rooms were filthy. The building has so much potential , but unfortunately it has a long way to go.

My trip to ye olde Narrows for an NHS Class of 1964 51st Reunion was highlighted by my evening stay at this well-kept, family-owned hotel. My brother and I stayed there with our parents for six months in 1948 while our dad was setting up his medical practice after WWII in the vicinity. I vaguely remember the black and white...

We had a wonderful time staying at the MacArthur Inn. The history is fascinating. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The breakfast was tasty and was just what we needed to get the day started before our outdoor adventures kayaking on the New River and hiking up to Cascade Falls. The town is quaint and close to a lot...

The rooms were great. We took 4 young boys with us and the accommodations were perfect for us. They stayed in a room across the hall and we didn't hear a peep. We came in late Friday night and Allen was waiting for us with the rooms all set up. Breakfast the next morning was the perfect fuel we needed...

Had a function in Blacksburg, Va. & it was very convenient to stay in Narrows. Great area. Loved the history of MacArthur Inn. Great customer service. Don't recommend breakfast. Make sure room has bathroom, as some rooms use bathroom down the hall......not me!

We stayed here about 6 years ago while on a family reunion in the park on Wolf Creek. This was like a bed and breakfast and the rooms were roomy and old style bedrooms. The rooms were clean and the bath room had an old claw foot tub that my wife wanted to bring back home. The rates were reasonable...

very wonderfully restored in a country setting at the juncture of the wolf creek and new river and at the intersection of the Appalachian Trail and the Great Eastern trail. Meals in the evening were quite a surprise to the whole group and very nicely presented.

While the gentleman that answered the phone was pleasant and informative, he really stretched the truth. When we arrived the parking lot should have been our first clue as to the quality of the Inn. We went into our room and discovered bugs in the bathroom, a leaky toilet and shower. The ceiling above the bed was falling down, the...

Three of my sisters and their family gathered at the Inn for 3 nights for VT's graduation. Each of our rooms were different. One that was in desperate need of a bathroom update (shower not functioning, no electrical plugs), one that needed vacuuming at check in and one that was newly renovated and perfect. There was no room service, but...
