    Good place to stay in Blackwater, staff were very friendly and helpful, food at the restaurant was really great too. Optional packed lunches were very convenient as was the free breakfast. There was a little bit of noise at night from the train line occasionally, and one night the restaurant kitchen closed earlier than advertised, but other than that it was good.

    This was purely a fishing trip this year. Stayed last year and had a chance to look around the town. Coal museum’s good, but little else of interest. Love the Motel.
