dirty, bathroom hotel

Posted Oct 16, 2017
the staff were nice. the room was comfortable. the bathrooms especially the bathtubs were filthy with a couple bugs and spiders. for $115 a night, it should be spotless. the staff was not available at check in and do not give u access to the inside of the hotel during your stay. they accidently locked the door and i didnt know if i was going to get to my room or not. i didnt know if i was going to be able to check in or not due to staff not being there.

If Grandma lived by the railroad tracks...

Posted Aug 9, 2017 on Hotels
This is a been there done that experience. The trains passing by was the most interesting part of this stay. It was the best part, but it was also the worst part. 30 to 40 trains go by (at least once an hour), 24 hours a day. During the day it was fun watching the trains, they pass by the hotel as far away as the 2 lane road. It is loud! The engines were load, the wheels squeaked &squealed. Wave to the engineers and get tooted at! In the middle of the night, when they pass by you WILL hear it &wonder if you are going to get hit! It's still fun, until you get tired of woken up. But it was a great experience! The hotel itself was featured on national TV shows for its uniqueness. The owners put a lot of work into restoring it. It has a lot of charm. Most of the bedrooms are very charming. If you liked staying at Grandma;s as a kid & miss it, this will bring back memories, exactly like it was 40 years ago... untouched! Don't come here if you are used to the comforts of the Hilton. The place was renovated by the owners several years but it could use some revamping. The bathrooms were very old and need of updating. For breakfast, grab a dusty box of cereal. Garden area is quaint but the weeds are winning. The hottub... eww, very dirty, don;t even think about it.

Unique place along the Coal Heritage Rd.

Posted Jun 29, 2015
Pros: The building is historic, the interior is interesting with a large art collection.
Location: The inn is located right by Hwy 52 and a few minutes from the Hatfield-McCoy ATV trails. There are historic coal mining towns to visit along the way.
Very friendly and helpful owner, room was comfortable.

Sounds like a tongue in cheek review but it's true

Posted Jul 27, 2012
I hate to disparage people who seem to be trying but the proprietors of this B&B are inept and a bit odd at best -- scary at worst. A half hour before arriving at the inn, we were stopped by the local police. A brake light was out but I think curiosity about the out-of-state plates was his main concern. He warned me away from this inn saying he wouldn't have his family stay there. Hmmm? As the skies darkened and we drove the winding roads of McDowell County searching for signs, I become increasingly unnerved. Made it there and survived the night. Awoke to no breakfast, no coffee, and no sign that the proprietors were still on this side of the living or the law. I threw the room keys on the table and left fast. Later, got a message on our home phone apologizing but their excuse made no sense--power outage in their part of the inn. I'm pretty tolerant and pretty well-travelled. This inn is overpriced and suitable only for visitors researching characters for a twilight-zone type short story.
