I stayed here for an extended period of time when I visited and I loved it. I love that it sat back a little bit from the college. It was clean, the two staff members were nice, it was great. You get what you pay for definitely. The best part of the room was it offered a microwave. I will...

I stayed in room 9. Usually motels aren't considered that nice, at least I wasn't expecting anything that nice but it was really awesome here. It is kinda old fashioned, but in a good way. The room included 2 double beds, a mini fridge, a microwave, air conditioning, and a good amount of outlsets. There is a shower and sink...

Low price with dingy and small room. Small bath as well. Plenty of hot water but would not stay here again. Fairly quiet with enclosed front hallway which had strong cigarette smell. On busy road but quiet.

Mr. Frugal...sorry you felt our motel was dingy. We are an older motel and cannot make our rooms any bigger. We try to make up for that by working on keeping them clean and quiet. We try to keep the rooms a nice color and new tv's. We will look and see if there is anything else we can do...

We stayed here during the annual shamrock shuffle. We wanted a location right in town and didn't want to spend a lot since we just needed a place to sleep. This is a small family owned motel. The owner was awesome and friendly. Can't beat the price at 45.00 per night! 😂 Our room was very clean, the bed was...

Located more or less in the middle of Frostburg, this motel is a little unusual. It's basically an old motel with a new front put on, about 6 or 8 feet in front of the old motel. Creates a corridor, which you enter, then walk a few feet down the corridor, to your door. The newer front quiets the sounds...

I was in the market for a cheap place to stay when I drove up to take my fiancee' on the train ride and tour the C&O Canal museum. It was your normal budget motel, situated behind a bar and smelling only slightly of weed. We weren't particularly impressed, and we had a sneaking suspicion the room hadn't been seriously...
