The hotel could move the smoking pot away from the front door of room.??????? I walked around the hotel area and that seemed to be the only one. Right outside our door by the ice and pop machine. I had asked for a non smoking room, via hotel .com. It was apparent that is where the smokers gather. Thank goodness it was raining and limited the gatherings. […] All in all it is what it is. A Budget Hotel. I would recommend it for a short stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My accommodations were very nice … I was very satisfied.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed here 3 years ago and it wasn't a good experience. It was much improved this time. The room was really clean, the staff was helpful, we were very happy. Not a 5 star hotel, but a great value for the money. The pet fee was only $10, a bargain. We will be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good Price, Clean Rooms but a little run-down"
My non-smoking room smelled heavily of smoke but the desk manager quickly offered to put me in another room. There seemed to be a lot of people outside smoking, and a lot of butts on the worn outdoor carpets. The abandoned restaurant in the the parking lot was also a minus to the overall feel of the place. But the price was very good and only two minutes […] from West Virginia University. The manager was very helpful and friendly, the lobby and rooms were clean and the free breakfast was quite adequate. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to Mylan Park"
Staff was very friendly. Area available for bikers to wash their rides before and after Mountainfest. Refrigerator and microwave in the room as well. Quality of bath towels wasn't the best and A/C unit stuggled to cool the room even when set in the mid-60's. Fortunately, the bed was close to the unit. Plan to stay there again next year for Mountain […] fest. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good hotel close to WVU campus"
This hotel was perfect for our stay. We were visiting my niece at WVU and it was very close to campus. There some restaurants and stores within walking distance. All in all, a great value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The rooms were fine. The exterior carpet was very dirty. We had requested a ground floor room and close to the party we were traveling with. We were on the second floor and oposite side of the hotel. At check in I was told - Sorry, that's all we have. It made it very difficult as we were traveling with a dog and steps are hard for myself to to use.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The first thing I noticed was how terrible the room smelled. It was supposed to be a smoke free facility but the smell of cigarettes was nauseating. The wifi didn't work and the beds were some of the most uncomfortable I've ever slept on.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Needs some updating"
The hotel needs some maintenance as it was a little run down. The room was clean, no issues with that. Staff was pleasant at check in and check out. It was very noisy outside of our room. There were a lot of truck drivers and construction workers staying there who were up very early, starting their trucks between 4-5am right outside of my room. This […] noise was constant for most of the morning. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Seems like a shelter for displaced people. A lot of folks hanging out on the balcony smoking. Didn't feel overly safe and the room is tired,needs some maintenance.The bed sagged in the middle but it did seem clean and the staff was friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Very nice staff, nice clean room. We would definitely stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fine for short stay"
Using hotels.com made check in/out very quick and easy. The staff was courteous and the room appeared to be in good condition. It was free of smells or any other adverse status. The continental breakfast was limited but no complaints considering it was free.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A fine place to stay"
We chose this hotel because of its easy access to the highway. We found everything about this site to be just right for us. The room was spotless and the bed was one of the most comfortable we have ever had. The staff was very nice and helpful. We would not hesitate to stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Superior Customer Service"
The room was nice and clean. We got upgraded bc their last king bed room had a broken sink, so they gave us the jacuzzi suite. Every person who worked the front desk went above and beyond to help us - absolutely incredible customer service! I will definitely stay here again if I need a room in Morgantown!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient to WVU Coliseum"
It was clean and comfortable and in a convenient location. Beds were comfortable with clean bedding. Well worth the price we paid. Only cons were the usual knuckleheads who decided to convene a gabfest right outside our room till 3:30 in the morning. And while there is free WiFi, I kept getting kicked off every three minutes or so.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Only thing disappointed in was the breakfast. Would have liked some yogurt and fruit options. Also waffles appeared to be frozen/defrosted Eggo waffles.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Affordable and convenient"
Hotel was very affordable for a one night stay... Very convenient for the location in reference to the area and shopping were we doing. Hard to get in and out of the parking lot during rush hour, the only draw back... Many good resturants located close by...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"get by with one night"
My room smelled like sewage or something similar maybe moldyGenuine Expedia guest review
Only problem was that we were given a room that had a thin connecting door to the room next door so we could hear everything they were saying. The hotel was full so we couldn't switch rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is an excellent budget motel. My only complaints were the WIFI was not working in my area, and the shower hot water was lukewarm. The sink hot water was hot but not the shower.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed one night here and would stay again. Hotel staff was very kind, room was great for one night. Hotel is a little on the older side, but all in all it was a pleasant experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was really comfortable. The bathroom had plenty of space to move around in. The free continental breakfast was fantastic. I would definitely stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Way better than the other budget hotels in Morgantown. Not fancy, needs some minor maintenance, but overall a clean, quiet and comfortable stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location; friendly staff. Only complaint was that the place was packed (It was a WVU football weekend) - there must have been 3 - 4 cars per room - and parking was scarce. Our room was in back of hotel and Saturday night we had to park in front by the Shoney's. No biggie just annoying.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Stayed there till they kicked us out for graduation."
07/07/14 Justin F Smyrna, Georgia, United States
Was working up the road so was convienant. Prices for room are ridiculous even at a corporate rate. The room service was ok @ best typical Indian ran hotel. Continental breakfast was so so. The guy who works nights at the desk needs ppl skills.
"You can do better"
07/02/14 cflavoured Toronto, Canada
I spent one night here while driving down to South Carolina from Toronto. I've stayed at quite a few hotels and motels of various quality and this was probably the worst/saddest place I've ever been to. For the price, I guess you can't expect much but surely there's better options nearby. The best part about this place as that it was close to the highway, which made it easy to get in and out of Morgantown as fast as humanly possible.
"Wasn't great but an okay place to crash"
06/30/14 JoeMc59 Normal, Illinois
When I reserved the room I was told that if I wanted to cancel I would have to call 24 hours in advance, which seems inordinately long. My first impression of the place is that it looks rather run down. Parking lot has some bumps and there's an out-of-business restaurant out front. Front desk was quick and friendly enough. The room smelled a little musty at first but within a few minutes I hardly noticed it again, and otherwise was clean and well furnished. Some noise filtered in from outside, not enough to keep me awake. I had trouble arranging the curtains in a way that passersby couldn't see around the edges and was uncomfortable being undressed in the room. Breakfast was just a few things like muffins and cereal. I'm on the fence about whether I'd stay there again if I were in the area.
"Non-smoking room smells like cigarette smoke"
06/15/14 12Karen31 Martinsville, Virginia
When we arrived the desk clerk was missing and I had to wait for 15 minutes. The place is very noisy late at night and early in the morning, so don't plan on getting any sleep. My biggest complaint is that the "non-smoking room" smelled/stunk like a cigarette smoker's paradise! The the bedding and carpet had cigarette burns. The room stunk and I didn't feel that the room was clean. My luggage now stinks like cigarette smoke!The breakfast was better than nothing.
"It works in a pinch....."
06/05/14 taterhed Stephens City
This hotel is a basic 'stay and go' hotel. On this particular occasion, the hotel was housing lots of contract workers on long term reservations. Unfortunately, some of the long-term guests did not get the word that check-out was required over the weekend. What a mess. This was not necessarily the fault of the staff or hotel. Just the way it is. The hotel is pet friendly and does have some rooms which smell of smoke. I'm sure many hotels in the area have the same problem--it's not just this one. This is a drive-up style hotel with parking immediately outside the front door of the room. This is not my favorite style of hotel/motel, but it is what it is. If you're a light sleeper, this type of hotel/motel is not for you. The rate was low, the staff did their best with a tough situation. I stayed here because of the pet-friendly policy. If you can afford it, I would recommend staying at a 3 star or better hotel in the area--if possible. Under the category of "you get what you pay for," this hotel was cheap, available and pet friendly. Staff was helpful, food was available. Easily accessible from ground floor.
"meets basic needs"
05/30/14 Rainelle T Eaton, Ohio
I read the reviews on this place beforehand as it was halfway stopping point on map on our way home.I was trying to save money; I guess $75 is now a cheaper price for a room these days. I made a reservation enroute as we got in late. The parking lot was kinda depressing; an old vacant Shoney's next door and noisey traffic on road in front. Office entrance had nice well maintained flowers in pots. The office was clean..girl at desk was not friendly when I checked in. Did not smile or offer any conversation. Next morning however, there was a young man on duty that was very nice and made up for her lack of attention. The room was very clean; bed comfortable and shower worked fine. No frills, but again...clean. Next morning we had a cereal and bagel and decent coffee before leaving. Maybe I have watched too many episodes of "Hotel Impossible" but it would be nice (and inexpensive) to put up some local art work (it is a college town) or photos of the local history to add some interest in the lobby. My husband also wondered why only one small table with 2 chairs for guests and would have liked to have had a waffle, but no sugar free syrup available for diabetics.
"Clean and Friendly"

The price was right. Bed wasn't too bad. Plenty of pillows. The staff very friendly. Basic breakfast. The rooms could use some updating, but it serviced its purpose. Just needed a clean place to sleep and shower.
"Avoid this place if you can."
05/05/14 Kari H Oakville, Canada
My wife and I, and our two adult children stopped at this Econo Lodge on our way from Florida back to Canada. I booked 2 rooms in advance based on reviews on Tripadvisor. Those favorable reviews must have been written by owners or employees because this place is a dump. Yes, it did appear that there had been some attempt to renovate but some things like damaged furniture must have been skipped, and additional damage done since the renovation. In one room the clothes rack near the vanity had been torn off the wall, and in the other, the bathroom door knob had punched a large hole in the wall. The carpeting on the outdoor walkways was extremely filthy and covered in numerous stains. In places there was more stained area than non-stained areas. It looked like the kind of place you should check for bed bugs and when I tried to inspect the mattress I found it had one of those covers design to stop them. The pillows also had them as well. My son checked a website where people report bed bug problems and this place had apparently had a serious problem a few years earlier.We didn't find any ourselves. And then there were the other guests standing and walking about the premises. They would be best described as sketchy. We didn't feel safe for the few hours we spent there. In the morning we found the breakfast area was a tiny little corner of the lobby and had only one table and one chair, so we left and had to stop to get something to eat elsewhere. My family and I have traveled a lot all over America and stayed in many reasonably priced hotels/motels over the years. I would say this is probably the third worst we'd ever seen. I would have left immediately upon seeing it but I had guaranteed the reservation with a credit card and it was too late to cancel by the time we arrived. Tripadvisor had let us down for the first time and I felt the need to warn others.

we had been driving about 10 hours and were looking for a place to stay. We saw the hotel sign at the exit and went to the econo lodge. I asked my wife if she wanted to check a room as the curtain was open but she was tired and hungry and said just book it. Once inside she wished we could have cancelled. The room smelled of javex (a good thing) the ceiling was peeling and the shower in the bathroom had ceiling flakes in the tub. They offer a breakfast but we just got up packed and left- marking it on a map as a location to avoid.
