Management was nice enough, but it ended that night. In our room, a huge spider was on the wall between beds when we went to bed. Another huge one in the bathroom the next morning, plus ants in the bathroom also. When I sat on the edge of the bed to tie my shoes the next morning, there was a... More

It's may be not something to WOW about. But pretty clean, Hotel staffs are very friendly and helpful. Not far away from highway and useful shops & restaurants are within walking distance. Massanutten Water park only 15 to 20 minutes drive. Got a very good deal. It's more that what we should got for that price!
