To let everyone know who is looking at the area hotels, this hotel and the New River Inn on Fayette Landings are the same hotel. The city changed the road name with the new interchange.
This was not our first choice for area lodging, but seeing we got such a late start to planning this vacation we were unable to get the premium lodging on ACE Adventure Center property. Since we were in Oak Hill, WV 6 years ago, the rafting scene has changed dramatically. Where ACE had been in competition with several other companies at that time, the economy has forced several rafting companies to sell their names and assets to two remaining companies: Class IV and ACE. This consolidation has placed a squeeze on the premium climate controlled lodging at these places. Therefore, we chose this establishment to stay in.
There is nothing to make this property to stand out from any other hotel in the area, although others staying here stated that one of the area indoor pools had so much chlorine in it, just entering the pool area burned one's eyes and lungs. The rooms were of adequate size and clean. We were able to get a hot shower at any time, no matter how full the hotel was. However, we can not state positively the friendliness of the desk staff. We made no crazy requests and were met with a "humph" from the front desk for the internet username and password. If that is so much a bother, put it in the room. With this economy, one might think a person would want to make sure they kept a job they had.
As for noise, thankfully it was not the weekend so there were no parties or boistrous people near us. We asked for and got a room on the third floor near an exit on the back side of the property. It was a little disconcerting as we brought our luggage to our room and feeling and hearing the hall floor creak and groan the entire way.
As for the internet, I swear they had scheduled outages or sent software to my wireless that would turn it off. I also had software conflicts that I did not have before staying there, or since I left the establishment.
The breakfast area was small, but efficiently run. The employee kept cleaning the tables and making sure that everything remained stocked. They also had two flavors of Belgian waffles each day, along with hard boiled eggs, sausage gravy and other items. If you leave hungry, you are way to picky. As for the other meals of the day, there are many other dining options close by in the strip mall: El Rio Grande mexican, Subway, Shoney's and an Asian buffet that the local like.
Bottom line; would I stay here again? Yes, if I could not get a premium place to stay on the rafting company's property.
