Nice stay

Conveniently located right on the river and next to some nice restaurants. Has a pool and hot tub which is also nice. You can easily walk to the main nightlife areas which is a plus. It is a pain that they make you pay to park there $6/night but overall a good place to stay.

This is a great place to stay; however, it's so large that you have to walk quite a distance to get from your room to the parking garage.

Never again

I love how everyone tries to church this place up like it's the gem of morgantown. Please try again. The parking situation is terrible. You have to pay to park in the hotel owned parking garage. And the I might a well parked in blue lot since I had to walk that far to get to my room. And don't bother trying to order food for delivery unless you want to walk all the way down to the lobby to meet with the delivery guy. I had just gotten a shower and was relaxing and got a call from the rude front desk clerk letting me know i had to come get it. When I asked about the security breach on why the young man wasn't allowed to my room he could not give me an explanation. I would recommend this hotel to no one.

Not Worth the High Price

I was very disappointed during my recent stay at the Waterfront Place Hotel. Considering the price, I was expecting a much better hotel. First, I was informed upon arrival that the hotel charges an additional $6/day for parking. This was not clearly specified when I booked my stay. The fee is unacceptable and I have stayed at hotels in major cities that include free parking. In addition, the parking garage is located a long walk away from the lobby/elevators. This was not a major problem for me but it could be an inconvenience for older/disabled customers. Second, the hotel is starting to look a little dated. The carpeting and furniture in my room were dirty and worn. Other areas of the hotel could also use updating. Third, the location is not that great. It is close to the downtown area but not necessarily within walking distance. And while it may be located in the "wharf district", this area basically consists of a couple of restaurants and a few other businesses. Finally, the hotel lacked minor amenities that many other hotels include (such as a mini-refrigerator in the room). On the positive side, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool area was very nice. I will be staying at the Hilton Garden Inn during my next visit to Morgantown. This hotel is newer than the Waterfront Place, is located in the Suncrest Towne Centre shopping area, and likely includes free parking.

the big pretender

A big hotel in the middle of Morgantown wants to be a resort -- but just isn't. It seems out of place. I am sure it is filled when there is a big WVU football game but otherwise the hotel seemed too big .....and sorta lonely. My biggest peeve was that I hate to have to leave my phone plugged in on the desk all night to charge, as opposed to being able to plug it in on the bedside table. Not enough outlets for me!!!

Great weekend get-a-way!

We had a beautiful room and in a GREAT location. We had never been there before and really had fun. Wonderful trail along the river, could walk everywhere! Would love to visit in the Summer and take our bikes for a nice ride! The pool, spa and guy was really nice. The people were friendly. We would definitely go back to stay... Thanks a million.

Girls night out

Extremely nice hotel. We came for a girls night out. We had a nice dinner at the Rat Pack Lounge. The food was excellent. The room was nice, beds were comfy. I think the only downfall was no fridge in the room! I'm not sure if this was an extra fee or if none of the rooms have a fridge but a fridge in the room would be perfect. I would stay here again.

Good for business travel

Good location, close to downtown businesses and university. Clean, comfortable room. Super friendly staff. Gym good but could use a little cleaning. Restaurant okay, but could use some healthier options.
