“A great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014

We enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Express "Harrisonburg"
The check in was so quick, (less than two minutes....not kidding you) the room was spotless clean, everything is in working order, the kids enjoyed the swimming pool and we enjoyed the Jacuzzi, towels were provided in both swimming pool area and Gym., enjoyed the good breakfast that was always stocked up well at all times.....kids enjoyed the Pancake machine, staff were friendly, parking was ample, quiet rooms when sleeping, and very comfortable bedding and pillows
The hotel is so close to Hwy 81, and close to many restaurants, Cracker Barrel was a walking distance from the hotel
I would recommend this place to anyone that is visiting the Harrisonburg area
We also enjoyed the two indoor Farmers Markets in the hotel vicinity (Shenandoah Heritage Market) and (The Shops at Dayton Farmers Market), that makes the hotel location so ideal for visitors
I write many reviews for the hotels that we stay at on our trips, and I always could find one thing or another that I don't like about a place, but this hotel was so well managed, and well kept, I find nothing but good things to say about it.....thumbs up to the hotel management, and to Holiday Inn Express as a whole

We stayed at this HIE on our way to visit the Grand Cavern Caves. The employees were nice and the free breakfast was good. The hotel could use a little bit of touch ups but overall was fine. The price was very good. There is a truck stop next door which our room was next to, but it actually didn't make too much noise. The hotel is close to the University and plenty of places to eat. Would stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the truck stop

I am a tour operator and brought a bus load of people here to spend the night on our way to Monticello and Williamsburg. Working with the hotel sales/management staff was a breeze. We arrived much later than I had thought and everything was just there waiting for our arrival. Clean, comfortable and affordable.(Even though there were home sporting events going on)

Very nice hotel. Better than average wifi. Good breakfast with hot stuff and many other yummy options. Good HD tv with lots of channels including NFL channel. The only downsides are no walkable restaurants but plenty available by car. Also, this hotel has my pet peave of no bedside electrical outlets readily available. Other than that, nice quiet hotel. Would recommend.

We stayed for one night so that we could enjoy a football game at JMU and not rush back to Northern VA that night. My kids enjoyed the indoor pool, I loved the convenience of the bus service to campus for the game, and my husband liked the hotel's proximity to Cracker Barrel. Also, the staff were friendly and helpful and offered us a military discount with ID! It made our stay very reasonable. This was my first stay at a Holiday Inn Express and I will definitely consider choosing them in the future.

Stayed here for one night. Room was pretty clean, tv kept cutting out though and a few lights didn't work. The bed was so comfortable it was hard to get up in the morning. Free breakfast and wifi are a plus too. Would stay here again when I am in the area.

This hotel sits a couple of miles out of town at Exit 243 (just off of I-81). There is a full-service Holiday Inn located in the middle of all of the shopping and closer to the university. So make sure that you know what you are signing up for. We stayed here for Family Weekend (Football game). It was plenty convenient to JMU. They did have a game shuttle, but we drove and it was not really an issue. The staff was friendly. The hotel was a standard Holiday Inn Express. The breakfast has options, but isn’t spectacular. They have a pancake “printer” that makes a nice pancake. I can’t speak for the whole hotel, but the water pressure on the second floor was awesome. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms on either end will be quieter (i.e. 202 and 201). Water pressure on the second floor was exce...
