“Decent place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2012

This is not a modern hotel, but very clean and under good maintenance, the staff were friendly and willing to help. All details show that the hotel was trying its best to leave customers warm staying experience. Really enjoy the small town touch.

Older property is well maintained, but by today's standards is cramped and very basic, think Motel 6: no hairdryer or in room coffee. Tiny bathroom is clean but curtain smells of mildew. Price is double what I would expect in any other town. The "restaurant" in the parking lot is a tiny pizza place. We enjoyed snacks and drinks at the River Rock Grille and family fun center. We stayed here as the choices along the Blue Ridge Parkway are limited and after a day driving in rain and fog, we were too worn out to continue. It is a pet free property but somehow I acquired a tick in an area that is covered by clothes during outdoor activities; activities which of course had not been enjoyed, as it was raining for two days prior to arrival. Staff is friendly and helpful, they of course, had no suggestions or recourse regarding reported tick acquisition. I would recommend this motel but with reservations regarding price and the mysterious tick.

This motel is very decent and you'll be thankful you chose it over others in the area. I've stayed there numerous times while hiking in the area. It's clean, the staff is always friendly.I've had consistently good experiences here. There's a restaurant right out the front door and other amenities. The area is safe. I've never had a problem with noise at night or unsavory guests. I think the staff works hard to maintain a nice environment.

The rooms are small and you shouldn't expect frills, but it's a great place as a stop over. They have a larger suite or two with separate rooms if you're going as a group or family. Great value!

Room Tip: As far away from the road as possible.

Very pleased with our recent stay at Alleghany Inn. While it is an older facility, it is very well maintained. The exterior was very neat, well lit, with convenient and ample parking. The room was clean and comfortable. Despite the small bathroom, everything was in good working order and clean.
There is a very good restaurant in walking distance - actually in front of the parking lot. We had breakfast there and it was delicious and reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the area.

The staff at the Alleghany Inn were very helpful and pleasant. The Inn is on the older side and does not have many of the newer amenities. No iron, no coffee and no blow dryer but it did have a microwave and fridge. The rooms were very clean and on the spacious side. They are helped by the fact that there are no other inns around. I would stay there again.

Room Tip: I would choose a room upstairs. They are quieter.

I have been by the Alleghany Inn many times on my travels through Sparta. I have just always opted to stay in Galax, VA or Hillsville, VA. This hotel isn't anything fancy but it is clean, has great Internet reception, the room had a couch, microwave and refrigerator in it as well. It was cold when I was there in October so I didn't get to sit outside and enjoy the mountian evening.
I liked the hotel and felt it was worth the money. I will stay here again.. Only suggestions would be to upgrade the bathroom lighting, needs to be brighter and to eventually get newer furniture.

Room Tip: If you do not liek climbing stairs you better get a ground floor room. I don't care one way or...

Will plan to stay the next time on the parkway. Everything was clean and the room smelled fresh. Staff is very accommodating and friendly. A pleasant stay with a very reasonable rate.
