What place are you staying and what was the address you were given?

Here are general directions going from Detroit to Beckley, WV, to Garden City but depending on day and time of arrival, you may want to use an "non-US-501 Route": http://goo.gl/maps/xzrTf

Beckley, WV is about the middle going the I-77 route. I have stayed at the Holiday Inn in Beckley several times and it is a nice hotel. If you go here, just wake early for breakfast, they are not the fastest in the morning. ihg.com/holidayinn/…hoteldetail

On our last two trips down to the MB area we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on University Parkway in Winston-Salem, NC. It may seem like it's beyond the halfway point, but the drive between Michigan and Winston-Salem is all expressway and much of the drive between W-S and MB is not, so it kind of feels like the halfway point anyway, if that makes sense. This hotel is very, very nice and downtown W-S is just a few miles down the street and has a nice ambiance with outdoor dining for dinner if you arrive early enough in the evening. This is always our stopping point now because it is so nice.

Beckley is about 8 hours or so from Detroit...and 7 or so on to the beach. Lots of hotels right off the exit. Holiday Inn, Hampton Inn, Country Inn and Suites, Days Inn, Courtyard, Fairfield...and others. Plus lots of resturants. SIt-down chains and local, and fast food.

Have a good trip!
