Traveling to and from PA to Gatlinburg TN, we stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Harrisonburg. This is an excellent hotel with very comfortable beds.

At the last minute I had to book an overnight stay near James Madison University. I was very happy to find that the HI Express was available. It was clean, convenient and comfortable. They conveniently provided the usual toiletries. Bed was comfy. I had a desk to finish up some emails while watching tv. The staff was polite and friendly.

This Holiday Inn Express is well located to VA 81 and is within a few miles of a variety of restaurants. It is close to a number of fast food choices as well.
