Ahoskie's Tomahawk Motel, an institution on Rt. 13 for years along with the old Tomahawk Restaurant, has recently made a management change with the goal being excellent service. The 50 room inn is owned by Mr. Braxton Smith, a North Carolina native who has years of business and personal relationships in Ahoskie.. The mid-century building has been maintained in excellent shape, is receiving new paint, vending and ice machines, breakfast coffee in the lobby and friendly , helpful staff to compliment. They are one of the few lodging facilities aroung to have their laundry on-site. Their view is "You are not our customer, you are our guest."
