“Great roadside place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014 via mobile

Stayed in one of the cabins twice. Friendly owner gave late check in discount the first time staying there. Stayed last year for a couple of nights in a pet friendly cabin which was very clean and cozy with fireplace and partial kitchen. Continental breakfast and free wifi. Next to gas station, grocery store, and excellent pizza. Price very reasonable and would definitely stay again.

Stayed October 2013, travelled with friends

Planned a couple of days over recent holiday weekend to meet friends so only needed one bed and shower. We booked several months in advance through Central Reservations, rate decent. Our room was clean, older, but gave a rustic feel. A/C worked well in this room. On ground floor in the back building by the river. Parking was tight as the first night every room was full. Second night no problem. Breakfast bar, just cereal, juice, and pastries. No frills. But, I would stay there again.

It's an old motel, all worn wood, but a nice location by the river. You can get rooms that are just a grassy area away from the river's edge. Gas Station right next door on one side, with a grocery store and hardware store beside that. On the other side is a Pizza restaurant with outdoor seating (quite a small place). The Virginian allows pets and they do have cabins. Note: there is no one to check you in after 9 p.m. Breakfast is enough to tide you over until you have lunch - bagels, doughnuts, yogurt, juice, cereal and milk, coffee, etc. We felt quite safe and secure here. The owner is extremely friendly and nice. Would definitely stay here again. Next time I would get a room upstairs (2 stories) as we had a downstairs room and you could really hear the person upstairs....so I guess it's minimal soundproofing there. You cannot walk into the town of Winthrop from this motel. It's about a 5 minute drive. Apparently they do close for the winter and re-open in April/May.

I needed a room late in the day, without a reservation and the Virginian was cute. So I pulled in and called the manager. He walked down to give me a key. The room was rustic -- the furniture and air conditioner were older, but it added to the frontier feel of the experience. It was clean, the setting was beautiful, right on the water, and I felt safe and well rested the next morning. It's not the Hilton Garden Inn, but for a family on adventure, it's a great, relatively inexpensive option.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river. Lovely.

We stayed in one of the cabins, and while at first glance the place is cute, overall not worth the cost! Bedding and towels were clean but rest of the room was not. Kitchen had only one glass and it was dirty, kitchen sink and bathroom were far from clean. A/C unit barely worked, we had to pull the mattress off of the full bed in the little bedroom and put it on the floor in the main room to be able to sleep at all because it was so hot. Staff was very friendly, but seemed overwhelmed. Breakfast was VERY misleading and pastries were not fresh. Donuts offered were like Hostess Donettes, little chocolate covered things! For a hundred bucks a night, we expected better accommodations!!

We reserved with central reservations online, which was convenient and efficient. A late check in was provided and our questions answered promptly.

This property is large and dark at night- finding the office took some time, but not a big deal.

Parking is something of a free for all but easy enough.

Our room was on the top floor and facing the river. The walls are paper thin, our neighbours were noisy, but I am extremely fortunate that we were not underneath them! I cannot imagine how noisy that would be!

The room isn't fancy, but it is cedar and really warm and cozy. The ceilings are vaulted, it's a good size and the beds were comfy. A/C worked well. The TV could use upgrading, it's a tube tv. The room was very clean.

The shower head is very low! I'm 5'9 and I had to duck to wash my hair. The floor creaked in the tub, very loud. There were quite a few soft spots in the floor.

We did not have the breakfast, so I cannot comment on that.

Overall it was a good value- if I return to Winthrop I would stay there again.

The Virginian was a good value for the money. It is a clean place to sleep and you get a bit of breakfast for your money. One caution I would add is that the "weekday" included breakfast is very limited (a few sugary cereals and poptarts - I had to ask for milk). The owner informed us that the weekend breakfast was "full" (included more items). This was not clear on the website - it seems a little unfair that the same price is charged regardless. However, I would likely stay again.
