Clean, Quiet and Affordable
Nov 02, 2013 by: Sophia R from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
We needed, a clean, quiet, affordable, and comfortable place close to the interstate. Thanks for meeting all our criteria. The front desk staff was inviting and very helpful. We will definitely come back on our return trip.
At least warm and out of the rain

My friend and I were riding the C&O towpath from Cumberland to Hancock so I booked this Inn for the night since it looked close to the towpath. The main house and office area was OK, but the rooms were typical one story roadside motel - lower class. At least they had a garden hose behind the house to clean some of the mud off my bike and shoes. The bathrooms were minimal with a shower head that barely sprayed, but the water was hot. Once we figured out how to get some heat into the room we were OK. The beds are hard and uncomfortable. I gathered up the stinkbugs in the room and threw them outside. It was a long trek into the town to find a restaurant and it was raining so we ate at the roadside inn across the highway.The WiFi didn't work well but I had a strong ATT signal. The breakfast (included in low price) was awful. I would highly recommend going across the road to the diner to get breakfast. I will stay at the Super 8 next time. I guess you get what you pay for....
I would not go again

The owners were nice people, but i think the place needs some extra care, the place was to old for my standards even though we did not pay that much. The next time I think I will look for a more expensive place in Hancock.

The rooms were dark and had an overpowering mildew smell. We should have had a clue when there were no other cars in the parking lot and the main house was dirty and had lots of mildew on the outside. The proprietor was very nice but that couldn't make the difference. We refused to stay there. I certainly can't recommend this.

I have no problem staying in roadside motels for a spur of the moment need to stay the night somewhere but I do expect the room to be clean. This place is anything but. While it could have the potential to be a cute retro type motel with the knotty pine paneling in the rooms, etc. the second we walked into our room we were overcome with a moldy smell and dead bugs laying on the carpet. I refused to stay and so did our friends who we were with that had a room in the big house on the second floor. Same thing, smelled like mold the second you opened the door. The women at the desk were nice enough about giving us a refund since we had just checked in. But I am still waiting on the refund to show up in my account. It is sad enough that these roadside motels are being driven out by chain hotels, etc. But if the owners took pride in their little motel, kept prices down word would get out and they would be sold out every weekend. Sadly this place doesn't care at all about their property and it shows.
