Nice older hotel, but well updated. The parking garage is a little tight, but that goes along with the theme.

A Gem Hidden in Downtown Morgantown WV
We were pleasantly suprised. This hotel was built in 2013 in the heart of downtown Morgantown WV. Check was smooth and efficient. The first thing we noticed upon entering our room was ZERO hint of tabacco smell. Always a plus. The room was clean and comfortable, if a bit sparse in the furniture department. The ONLY negative is thd room was on thd dark side. The lighting in the room was lacking. That combined with the dark grey tones in the room, made it a dark room. A couple of floor lamps in addition to the lighting already there would do wonders. On that note, the bathroom lighting was insufficient as well. Be that as it may, if we stay in Morgantown in the future this will be the first place we check for availability. ADD SOME ROOM LIGHTING.

1/5 Terrible

Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The TV was not working. I called the front desk for help. Someone came and couldn’t fix it. He said he would talk to the manager. He never came back. A bunch of white trash rented out the rooms around me and stayed up late drinking and screaming. I had to call the front desk twice to get them to do something. Horrible experience. Never again.
