The Scholar Hotel- Morgantown, Morgantown
Very dissatisfied!!!
I booked this hotel based on the star rating & the pictures posted more than anything. The pictures show a very nice hotel. NOT AT ALL!!!! Non of the pictures are of this hotel, it is run by students which is not a problem but when you walk in it smells of saw dust & paint. There are non accommodations except for a small snack area. No kitchen at all, no place to even get ice. As we went to our room, there was bed linen on hallway floor which stayed there u till next morning. Then once in the room, toilet paper holder fell to the floor. We never had anyone check to see if we needed anything. Was very dissatisfied with this hotel. Totally misrepresented & definitely not worth $100 per night stay!!!!

Chestnut is great 👍
We stayed in Morgantown the night before a doctors appointment at Ruby. We have never stayed before, but this is my new favorite place to stay in Morgantown! The staff was nice and went out of their way to make sure we were happy. It’s located near food, stadium, hospital and places to go out.

Lobby was under heavy construction but otherwise the hotel was clean and my stay pleasant. I would certainly stay there again if I were to return to Morgantown.

Great spot but reservation was deceiving
My family and I booked this because of the location and while the hotel and staff, itself, was pleasant and clean the reservation I booked included breakfast and referenced the rooftop bar and restaurant onsite. However, when we arrived all were under construction, not available and the breakfast included, that I paid extra for, was a basket of prepackaged goodies and coffee available to all!

I really like The Chestnut and it's my go-to hotel in town. The ambiance is great and they're doing some upgrades and improvements which is awesome. My main complaint is having to pay for parking which is a fairly new policy. It's $5 per night. Based on their downtown location, I can understand charging for parking during peak times (game days, graduation, etc.), but not every day.
