Headed to West Virginia

Kayakman and I will be riding to and around WV for a week, leaving on Sat morning on our Wees.

Any recommendations for good little places to eat or reasonably priced motels?
We prefer small motels in quiet locations, not some huge thing beside a busy highway but sometimes they're hard to find. Clean and a good bed is all we need.

If your near the Holly River State Park I have to recommend Rella's Cafe, it's a trailer on side of the mountain run by some older ladies. Not much to look at but the food is good.

It's on hwy 20 just south of the 20/3 split. N38 37.403 W80 23.324

The Boyer Sation motel is pretty nice (good location) N38 29.809 W79 47.684

I've got to run now but I have more good WV routes stored as Mapsource files if you're interested.

Thanks for the tips! That's just the kind of places we like to go.

Leaving early tomorrow morning. If anyone sees two black Wees on the road in WV next week, one with Ontario plates and one with Michigan plates, that will be us. Give us the big V wave or stop and say hello.

Might make it down to VA too as the BIL lives there. Headed down thru MI and Ohio and probably do a big loop to pass thru PA and NY on the way home.
Darn those Great Lakes...just get in our way every time. Someone needs to start up a ferry in there somewhere.
