New River Inn
Ranked #4 of 4 Hotels in Oak Hill
Reviewed 16 June 2009

Wow! Cant believe the reviews posted here, they must be old or were made by competitors. This place was fantastic! Its now a Comfort Inn and they have completely upgraded the entire building. It looks new both outside and inside.

After days of staying in dumps in Georgia and North Carolina on our road trip north, we were headed to Fayeteville to visit the New River Gorge. It was late in the day and everyone was ready for a hotel room. We stopped at a HI just south of here, it was old and dated and the parking lot was empty. We went in and were told the rooms were $110 per night. I said no way but the desk clerk wouldn’t give us a better rate, so frugal me headed back to give the bad news to the rest of the gang in the van. They were mad, but I calmed them and suggested we go to the next exit and see what was there, figured we could always come back to the dump.

We drove a few minutes north to Oak Hill and saw a Comfort Inn on the west side of the highway. I went inside and was surprised at how clean and cozy the lobby was. I asked the price and was surprised that it was cheaper than the last dump we stopped at. I then asked to see the room (tip: always ask to see a room, at least they wont give you the key to their worst room). We went up and were shocked!!!! This was the cleanest room we had found on our entire trip north from South Florida. We went back to the desk clerk and grabbed two rooms on the third floor, carried our bags up and and headed down the street for dinner at the Chinese Buffet. The food was good, the price right and the selection extensive. When we got back to the room we found a surprise……………… down comforters and big soft pillows hidden under the covers!!!
We had the best nights sleep of our trip. No loud drunks roaming the hall. This Comfort Inn was well managed and clean and no smell of smoke, musty carpet or the usual cheap hotel odors.

But the best surprise was hidden until the next morning at their little free breakfast room,,,,,,,, biscuits and gravy…….it tasted better than most I have had a Cracker Barrel.
If you don’t stay here while visiting the New Gorge or Fayeteville, you got hosed!

My family stays at this hotel several times a year. It is convenient when visiting relatives and one of the more reasonable rates in the area, and has been since it was a Super 8 a few years ago. The breakfast is basic, but you can make the most of it since it is included in the modest price. The rooms are utilitarian, but this isn't a five-star establishment. My biggest complaint is that the wired internet service hasn't worked in any of the rooms we've stayed in in the past year, and despite complaining about it to the manager, nothing has been fixed, and the only excuse offered up is that it will be fixed when they convert over to a Comfort Inn sometime in the future. two thumbs down on the management addressing an advertised, and expected, feature of the rooms.

Room smells like cigarette smoke. Walls are paper thin, you can hear TV and conversation in adjoining rooms. The front desk would not answer the phone. Not enough towels in room, no drinking glasses. The hotel was very dirty and the breakfast bar was a bunch of frozen food you had to heat in the microwave. The rooms are overpriced for what you receive. I expect this type of service and room from the lowgrade budget hotels.
