Dual hotel opens for business in Teays Valley

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Long-term and short-term visitors to the greater Kanawha Valley area now have an additional choice of where to stay.

Community leaders gathered with the owners of a new Sleep Inn & MainStay Suites, a dual hotel in Teays Valley, for a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday along with tours to commemorate the opening.

Angela Harding and her husband Kelsey welcomed all on Tuesday morning including sample breakfast and room tours. She said having a dual hotel opens many options.

“The shorter-term stay traveler has the option of s more simpler room. Your traveler or person who needs to come int the area, maybe they are moving or their company has them here for a couple of weeks. That way they have a little bit more space.”

The Sleep Inn style rooms offer the amenities that short-term guests need while the MainStay Suites caters to extended-stay guests, according to a release. Harding says it is the only extended-stay hotel from Charleston to Huntington.

The extended-stay rooms offer a kitchen area that includes a microwave, large refrigerator, dishwasher, and a cooktop.

The hotel is located off Exit 39 in Putnam County, close to the Home Depot in Teays Valley.
