Howard Johnson Express Inn Staunton
Ranked #10 of 15 Hotels in Staunton
Reviewed 8 July 2014

This hotel stay was meant solely to get off the road for the evening after a long drive. For me it was a little too far from the highway. When I arrived there was plenty of parking, the lot and outside of building was very neat and clean. The lobby was clean and brightly lit and the desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. However once I entered the elevator things changed some. Although everything was clean, as soon as the elevator door opened I was attacked by some sort of bug. The amount of bugs increased unbelievably from the elevator to my room. These bugs were everywhere, flying around and on crawling on the ground. It was horrible. So bad that I was uber sensitive when I checked the room for cleanliness and my bags, hair and clothing for stragglers. The room itself was dated but extremely clean (thank god). I'm really not sure how to rate this hotel so I'm going middle of the road on it. The bugs were a real drag but the hotel itself and the staff were great.

We had a king sized bed that was super comfortable. The room was clean, the shower had good water pressure. Breakfast could have more variety, it was just cereal and bagels/muffins. Also in the exterior hallway there are a bunch of bugs, probably because of the light.

I booked a room at this hotel, a little weary of the fact that it was a motel and that it was a little dated. It turned out to be the perfect place for a one-night getaway. The family who owns it was very friendly and helpful, helping us check in a little early so we could get settled before going to the ASC's showing of Othello. It is the perfect walk from many restaurants and Blackfriars - straight down Central Ave. and then take a left. The rooms have recently been painted and the bedding has been updated -- I regret not taking a picture of the room. It was clean and comfortable. The bathrooms need a little updating, though. The shower and toilet both seem old; however, it seems like the entire place is slowly being renovated, so I have no doubt that they'll bring everything up-to-date sooner or later. Overall, it was perfect for a one-night stay with my boyfriend. Clean, comfortable, and the perfect walk away from Staunton's lovely downtown.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room on the front side of the building - the pool is on the back side and it...

First of all it's a 5-10 minute walk to the centre of Staunton with its great choice of restaurants/bars/cafes -that was my main reason for staying here rather than in one of the hotels beyond walking distance.

Rooms are a good size with everything you need. They are clean and nothing was broken/grubby.

The TV was a little fuzzy, the shower was OK but not the most powerful.

The price of the rooms reflects the age of the hotel so you get what you pay for.
