Reviewed 9 July 2014

We had a tiring drive and longed for a great bed and clean hotel for the night. We got both. The staff was courteous. The bathroom was very small requiring closing the door to be able to get to the toilet. Although not overly important to us, our room on the second floor looked out onto a wall about 10 feet from the window, blocking the view of anything else. So ask about the view if you are closterphobic. There is a Houlihan restaurant attached, making lunch and dinner convenient, with consolidated billings.

We booked this hotel just for an easy place to stay overnight before hiking in Shenandoah National Park, but it was much nicer than we expected. The hotel was quite new and in pristine condition. We had a handicapped-accessible room on the 4th (of 5) floor, which was really nice because it was extra-wide and made the room seem almost like a suite. But the best part is that the hotel sits on the edge of a golf course and has 180-degree views of beautiful quiet countryside from the sun deck. After a long soak in the indoor hot tub, I sat outside on the deck and watched the sunset. It was an absolutely perfect summer evening. The next morning I got up early and enjoyed a cup of coffee and my newspaper while marveling at the beautiful view. It was really lovely, and I would consider coming out here again just for the peace and quiet before hiking!

We didn't eat at the onsite restaurant but had a quiet drink at the bar later - service was nonexistent and it took forever to pay the bill. But we did enjoy a terrific dinner at Element in Front Royal - a fantastic restaurant that was also a nice surprise. We'll be back to this area soon!

Room Tip: You could ask for a view over the golf course, but even the rooms on the sides have nice views. High...

This Holiday Inn did everything you would expect a good Hotel to do and while there was nothing particularly outstanding, there wasn't anything wrong either... and isn't that a good thing? We had driven 461 miles that day and so we were pleased to be well accomodated.

The location of this Hotel is perfect if you are going to travel the Skyline drive, as we did the next day.

I booked this at the last minute and didn't know what to expect. My experiences with Holiday Inn have not always been stellar. However, we were very happy with the accommodations, the staff was very friendly and efficient, the room clean. Since we we only stayed one night and got there later in the day after having visited some of our favorite vineyards in the area, we weren't able to take advantage of the on-site pool or the golf course adjacent to the property. Also would like to make time to explore the town Front Royal. We will be back.

We were only there one night but after a thirteen hour drive, it was paradise. The room was wonderful, clean, comfortable bed, great shower. Loved the fitness room. The hotel connected was a an added plus. Close to Shenandoah National Park.
