Because Beckley, WV, is about the mid-point of the drive from Knoxville to Pittsburgh, we have spent many nights in the Fairfield Inn there. The hotel is pet friendly, and we occasionally travel with our "grand dog". It has the typical amenities you expect from Fairfield (free WiFi, good cable TV selection, free breakfast, quiet comfortable rooms). Built about 30 years ago, the Fairfield Inn in Beckley was beginning to show its age--worn carpeting, torn wallpaper, stained shower/tubs, etc. However, the entire hotel is undergoing a remodeling that promises to not only correct those issues but also update all the rooms. Indeed, construction was underway when we stayed there in October and when we stayed at the nearby Courtyard last week. Hopefully construction should be complete when we return north in January.
