This was our only hope for a room late one night after 12 hours of driving. Lucky for us there was a room available. The owner was on the desk when we arrived and was very friendly and helpful...my new BFF. Turns out this was one of the nicest places we stayed. It is a retro, newly renovated, independent motel,...

So pristine! We stayed up on the hill and loved it. I'd stay there any time! Trip Advisor says I have to have more characters so I'm just typing to take up space until I hit their magic number of 200 c

I treated my parents to a ride on the Potomac Eagle Scenic Railroad and a night stay at the Koolwink. They got to enjoy the room, while we simply just visited it. It was super clean and felt like a step back in time. Dont let the retro furnishings fool you, everything was clean and comfortable and very well kept....

My wife and I stayed one night before going on train. Very nice clean room . It will take you back to the seventies but with flat screen tv, fridge and microwave. Reasonable rates and nice location just out of town. Will definitely be back. The owner was very friendly and helpful

We stayed at the Koolwink for one night last weekend for a wedding on Lake Ferndale, Springfield. We were so impressed with the property. The front yard is well kept and maintained with beautiful gardens and flower beds everywhere. The backyard is very serene with a small creek running along the building and a waterfall running down the creek. There...

Love this little home away from home. Been staying here for years. Very clean and inexpensive. Love the small town hospitality. My kids love it too. Rooms are very large and comfortable. I highly recommend it to travelers. Creek in back is very cool.

What a great place to stay. This was our third visit to Romney for the South Branch Bluegrass Festival. Our stay up on the hill was fabulous again. And the festival is one of the best going. Can't wait till next year.

The Koolwink is a great place to stay! Even though it was built in the 50s and 60s, everything is updated, but decorated with a retro style. Our room was clean and comfortable. We stayed in a room in the annex building, on top of the hill. This was nice, as it was away from the sound of the traffic...

The Koolwink Motel is modest, clean, comfortable, and low price motel in Romney WV. My wife and I would recommend it. You can pay considerably more and not get any better value. It is very convenient to the Potomac Eagle train. We strongly recommend reservations and the motel fills up during train riding season. Please ask for the rooms on...
