The Turf Rodeway Inn & Suites has been serving Jefferson County and the Charles Town area since the early 1950's. Owned and operated by the Marcus Family, loyalty and customer satisfaction has carried on throughout the years and generations. Founding couple, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Marcus, opened the Southern Motel, the first modern amenity-equipped Motel in Jefferson County, on March 1, 1952.
Located across the street from the present day Turf Rodeway Inn & Suites, the Southern Motel was sold in the mid 1950's upon the opening of the Turf Diner in 1955 followed by the opening of the Turf Motel a few years later. Structural changes have occurred throughout the years, but the family-oriented structure upon which the Turf was founded, still thrives under it's current owner, Ron Marcus. Fire destroyed the restaurant and office area on November 16, 2000, lending to the creation of the newly opened section with expanded office area and complete new hotel style amenities.
