I checked in to this motel yesterday (after never having stayed here before) and from the moment I went to check in until now, I can tell you that I am NOT AT ALL satisfied with anything to do with this place! But more specifically, the way that I'm being treated by who I'm guessing is the manager/owner. She is just plain RUDE & idk how she's made it this long running a motel!! Because she damn sure doesn't give a crap about customer satisfaction. Upon checking in, she told me & my 4 children that we would have to wait 10 minutes before going into the room because she had to make the beds & also made a comment about us not messing up her room. Not long after we were in the room and trying to get settled, my 3 year old was messing with the phone and i finally unplugged it just in case he was dialing the front desk or another room somehow. 2 minutes later, she's banging at our door so I opened it and she seemed all pissed off and told me to unplug the phone because my son called 4 times (somehow lol). Mind you, I've barely been able to understand the lady since I got here... Last night around 9pm i was outside smoking and the kids were also out there with me looking at the ducks in the little pond out front ( not screaming and acting out of control or anything. Just outside)... She came out of her little office and told me that my kids need to be inside going to bed right now because there's other people here!! Who the hell does she think she is?! I just said that they were about to go to bed & that was that... Since we got here, the air conditioner in the room has barely worked & it was like 81 degrees and sunny yesterday and the same today so we've been VERY uncomfortable to say the least!! The AC was on full blast on the coldest setting, along with my fan that I have to have on at night to be able to sleep. So, when we got up this morning at 6am before the sun even came out and it was pretty chilly outside... on top of the AC on the coldest setting turned all the way up & my fan on full blast all night. So I decided to turn the heat on low while I was getting the kids ready for school But made sure I turned off the unit itself before we left for the day. Got back today around 4 PM and the key wasn't working so I went to the front desk and let the lady know & she fixed it, handed it back to me and then proceeded to say something about a trash can but I didn't know exactly what she was trying to tell me so I was like huh? I dont know what you mean... She said "oh my God... I will show you come here!" And went over to a room with their door open that i guess she was cleaning, grabbed the trashcan & said "you need to put bag in trashcan before you put trash in it! Don't put trash in can if there's no bag! I'm not clean your room. You clean it". I tried to explain to her that I took the bag of trash out last night and I didn't have another bag to put in the can & it wasn't like I put anything liquid in the trashcan or anything nasty...it was literally just trash. I get in the room to see that she put fresh towels in the bathroom but didn't take the ones off the floor. Put a bag in 1 trashcan but no bag in the other. The beds were not made, the floor was not swept (even tho I did that last night as well)... But before I went back to the room I asked about the air conditioning because it was hot as crap in the room once again And to ask if there was anything she could do like maybe switch us rooms or have someone come try to fix it.. she said "no, no switch room! No one ever complain to me about AC! Then came into our room and said the heat was on, that why it not working! Then slaps her head like "duhh!" And I tried to explain to her that the unit itself was off but it was on the heat setting cuz It was chilly this morning And told her that I would turn the AC on full blast and it would still be extremely hot in there 2 hours later and It's now 3 and a half hours later and you can't even tell the AC is on... Thankfully my other 3 children are with their dad tonight but my oldest is here with me and he has asthma. Not okay!

4/20/2023......My family is from the area and I've stayed there in the past so I was familiar with the location and hotel...or at least I thought I was. I paid a flat 85 for a 1 night stay . I arrived around midnight paid, got the room key to rm 129 and I called the desk and was told I could not be refunded If I left. This was the worst room on the face of earth.I can't begin to elaborate on the dirt & filth I saw, & was stunned by the bed only having a box spring on top a metal box for a bed. & the holes all around as If they were for small creatures to travel through, the bathroomwas disgusting beyond measure, in everyway. I would reccomend you stay in your car or truck before staying there. They literally should be shut down without exception. Even If the room Is free please rum as fast as you can.

This hotel had no phones in the rooms. The room that I had was next to the sewer. I asked for a non-smoking room so when I got there and opened up the door it smelled like smoke. It was not handicapped accessible like I was told it would be.

Clean , just a basic place to sleep. Can get coffee, treats, gas right across the road at a convenience store. Close to historical sites. Owners were friendly. Free WiFi . Price could be a little cheaper since they offer no breakfast items.

Other than a B&B, this motel was the only option in Montross. It is older and very dated. We had three rooms, which were all very dark due to the walls and ceilings being dark colored paneling. My room was clean, but the bathroom floor, while clean, was crack up and needed to be replaced, as did the fixtures. It is obvious that the owner is making strides updating this property including flat screen TVs, and new doors and locks. The owner was very friendly and helpful at check-in and also when I checked out the next morning. If I had to, I would stay at this property again, but if another option was convenient, possibly a chain hotel, I would probably go with the other option.

We stayed at this motel for one night because we were doing something locally, and this was the only lodging that was nearby. I'm sure it must be hard work to be an independent motel owner. The owners apparently live in an apartment that is part of the hotel, and they were very pleasant and nice from the little interaction we had with them. The room that we were in was probably typical of the motel, and it was literally something that's right out of the 60's. The rooms were small, and they were very dark due to the wood paneling that's on every wall. The ceiling was also a dark wood paneling. The beds were just fine, but they didn't have any blankets on them. They just had a sheet and a bedspread. Bedspreads are notorious for being very dirty as they are rarely laundered - though I suppose you could say that same thing about blankets as they are heavy, though not has heavy as bedspreads. The sinks in the vanity area worked fine, but they too were old. But given the age of the place, the room seemed to be clean enough, though the dim lighting made it somewhat difficult to see. The room had a modern refrigerator and a microwave, and they worked just fine. The phone in our room didn't work, but we had cell phones. The bolt on the door locking mechanism worked, but the secondary latch above it was broken. We ended up wedging a chair underneath the door handle to ensure that no one could bust through the door, or that housekeeping wouldn't inadvertently come in using a master card key. The hand soap felt like plastic, but the bath soap was fine. There was a small tear-packet of shampoo, which we didn't use since we brought our own shampoo. The towels were thin and rough, though clean. We also brought our own towels too just in case. There was free Wi-Fi that worked well. The pictures I'm posting kind of speak for themselves. This is a bare-bones place, and works in a pinch given that there are no other options around.

This motel was very nice, we only stayed one night after an oyster festival, but it was great. It is not a 4 star hotel, it is an older establishment, but it was very comfortable and clean and the management was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are entered from the outside and they have adirondack chairs outside for the guests use. We were with a group of 5 and we sat outside on a beautiful night and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves…….like going back in time! Sometimes that is a good thing :)

This is an old, very basic, budget roadside motel and you get what you pay for. The furniture is old but the room was large and clean and the wifi was great. The only real complaint I had was the very strong odor of disinfectant or cleaning product of some kind. Budget motels are our standard fare, but if you are used to upscale, this isn't for you. Otherwise, it's fine.

Montross is a very small town and accommodations are rare, so I am very grateful for this motel. My father and grandmother stayed here when I graduated from high school in 1972, so it's been here for quite a while. The location is great, my grandson and I walked "uptown" to the drug store, and Food Lion, the Dairy Freeze, and the skating rink are all within walking distance. The beds were very comfortable, the heating unit worked great. Our room was clean, linens were clean. The website stated the room had a hair dryer but we couldn't find one. I'm sure if we had asked there would have been one available. They do have Gideons' Bibles in the nightstand, which I always look for. We were grateful for the coffee maker, and the ice machine was just outside our door, as was a soda machine. The staff were very friendly. We forgot our key one day when we went out and when I went to the office to request to be let in, they smiled and handed me our key without me even having to ask so they do notice who you are.....and if you've left your key inside your room.
