“Right off I 81 and a no frills hotel.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2013

I stayed here while driving an athletic group on a very tight budget for an overnighter. The room was very basic to the point that they had wall lighting that reminded me of the 1960's or '70's. Desk only had a can light in the ceiling for desk lighting. No lamps at all. There was no coffee pot in the room also. I was in a regular 2 double bed room. Coffee served in the morning along with an el cheapo breakfast. Glad I brought my organic flaxseed oatmeal.
The indoor pool is not really indoors. It is a separate greenhouse type dwelling over the pool and it was closed since it really is an outdoor pool.
Bus Parking is adequate for buses up to 35 feet. I was able to plug in the bus's block heater since it was a 12 degree windchill here in Bristol Va. and someone yanked out the cord during the night. Front desk was fine with me using their out door outdoor outlet.
I would only stay here if it was a matter of no room available anywhere else. Good plus that this is a Smoke Free Hotel and Pet friendly from what I understand.

Stayed in Room 119. Room and linens were clean. Furnishings pretty outdated (entire wall behind two double beds was mirrored). No lamps, lighting was overhead fluorescent panels. Room rate of $65 very reasonable, but $50 addt'l fee for pet outrageous. Nicer hotels charge $25 max. And, yes, breakfast was meager - mini muffins, white bread, juice, and coffee.

It's hard to find an entirely non-smoking hotel in Bristol, VA. That being said, let me mention that with all of the other choices available for smokers, we still had someone smoking in the room above us on our first night there. The odor wafted down into our room, and I had extreme difficulty breathing. On the second night, the place was nearly empty, and as a result, no smoke smell at all.
Of course the hotel cannot be responsible for the rudeness of the guests. I did mention the smell to one of the attendants, but it was obvious that no action was taken.
Our room was clean. Our view was of the mulch in the garden center adjacent to the hotel. But we were there primarily to sleep.
Breakfast was extremely disappointing. You could have a bagel or packaged oatmeal, but no fruit and I had to get an attendant to scare up some tea bags for tea. Let's just say that the breakfast was slim pickings.
We were told that we got a 10% discount at Perkins Pancake's which is also adjacent to the hotel. We never used it, but the restaurant is open 24 hours.
We were given a great room rate, but that was quickly offset by the $50.00 pet fee. We had one small dog with us. We felt lucky enough to find a Non-smoking room that permitted pets. However, there really isn't any place for the pet to relieve himself outside, as everything is stone or gravel. No green areas or trees around. So be warned.
