Staff were friendly. But infrastructure and cleanliness of the motel were bad. Carpet and oven were dirty in our room. We tried to call the front desk but i think there was a problem in connection. We planned for three days but then we changed our mind and stayed in another motel for rest of the days. Overall we are...

It was a very quick trip for me. I was in hurry and i want a room for refreshment. So I searched and found cheapest one for it. But i did mistake. Staff was very good and helpful.But heater was not working and hand towels were dirty.

They really do need a new marketing plan - one that includes bragging about all of the wildlife they provide at no cost. It was only the dreariness of a hurricane that drove me from this place. The owners are both wonderful, and accommodating. They made you feel as though you were a guest in their home. It was a...

We had a lovely stay despite the heat and the rain. The owners are very helpful and nice. It was a clean room right on the river. They have an inground pool that a family was enjoying when we returned from dinner.

Stayed one night, which was enough. While the rooms were clean and inexpensive, you can find MUCH better lodging in Tappahannock! The rooms are extremely small. The beds were hard as a rock, and the bathrooms looked like something from a 1950's college dorm. Small, no counter space, tile floor/walls, and a stand-up shower only. Towels were like sandpaper. Only...

My daughter and sisters and I visited Tappahannock for a graduation and stayed at this family-owned and run motel. The staff was very friendly and the room was clean and very comfortable. Our room was in the back of the motel close to the pool and away from the main street so it was quiet. The pool was really nice...

Drove down from the DC/NOVA area and made a last-minute booking on Memorial Day weekend. We fully expected the worst, but were totally surprised to find that our room was spacious, very clean and very comfortable. The people staying next to us told us they had been coming to this motel every year for the past 15 years (great fishing...

We were in town to visit family. Older motel but very clean. They are in the process of renovating some rooms. Front desk staff were very welcoming and nice. Spacious room, very clean, and quiet. Close to restaurants, shopping, and the river.

When I pulled into the parking lot I became suspicious. When you see people leaning on the walls of the building drinking their 40's (oz of beer). Or when you check in the reservations is behind bullet proof glass. The most up settling was that the smell of the room nearly knocked me over. Had to go out a buy...

Spent the extra money for the river view room. so worth it!! The rooms are off by themselves, so there is plenty of piece and quiet. I was traveling with my boyfriend and service dog and the owner made us feel at home. Was treated better here than at other hotels I have stayed at with her. Thank you for...

“Best to request a room at the rear of the property. Larger rooms and away from traffic noise. Also, great parking for anyone towing a boat. Rooms are a bit "dated" but everything was very clean. Don't expect fine bath towels and you need to ask for new towels each day if you need them. The owners are very accommodating. The pool is well maintained. I will come back again.”
