Nice, but had some issues
Overall our stay was fair to good. We only stayed for one night. The hotel changed their name to The Scholar, which just happened the day before we checked in and there was no notification of the name change. Our room was comfortable and everything was new. But there were some hiccups. Our door knob kept getting stuck and wouldn’t open. They did move us to another room, which was larger with two queen beds. The parking garage isn’t that great, actually this is probably my deterant for not staying here again. Only one way into the hotel/parking garage... which it’s the same way out as in. So you have to be careful going up the ramp that another car isn’t coming down. NO elevator from the garage to the hotel. If you park first then you’ll have to carry your luggage or bags down a narrow staircase. In my reservations it said free breakfast... well there was nothing when my daughter and I went down in the morning before leaving for WVU orientation. The Starbucks wasn’t operational and there was no breakfast. I understand it’s under new management, but you should of had everything together before opening to business!!!! I could already see moulding coming apart, the tile in the bathroom around the tub was already uneven and some tiles looked untouched by the grout. The overflow drain in the tub was an exposed pipe that was dirty inside. Not sure why it was left like that. The bed was comfy and it was clean, but I’ve already cancelled a future booking in the fall.

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.

Unexpected gem
I was a little nervous when I saw the outside but the room was big. The beds were extremely comfortable. I've never complimented hotel towels before but their towels were the best! Check in and check out was a breeze. Everyone was friendly and acconodating.
