Just a peaceful place to sleep. Nothing special. Room was clean, beds clean. Average priced. Many places to eat in the area. Motorcycle friendly. Located a few miles from the Skyline Parkway. Would stay again

First of all, I have to say that the staff members were extremely friendly, and the location, for our purposes was good. However, the room was extremely lacking in both charm and comfort (plus, the towel rack and toilet paper holder kept falling off the wall).. The desk clerk showed the room to me before checking me in, and I... More

He could have picked a little better place. When i first pulled up i thought he wad joking. It looked like nothing i would stay in. All in all its a good place to stay when they run out of rooms in the area. We stayed in the room on the side. The room was clean, bed was what i... More

Having arrived at Front Royal on the Saturday evening of Fall Festival we soon discovered that most places would be fully booked. Reluctantly a receptionist at a hotel suggested that whilst he was not recommending it as such, we would be sure to find availability at the Cool Harbor Motel. Having read the mostly negative reviews on Trip Advisor I... More

Do not stay here. We got a 'cheaper' rate on Hotwire which they equated this hotel with Super 8. At about $80.00 total for three of us it was no Super 8. As a previous reviewer said the stairs were certainly a death trap up to the second floor. Finally on the second floor, almost every room was listed as... More

Wanda, the front-desk person and manager, is awesome, and did everything in her power to make our stay pleasant, but the room was a dump and the place was an overall dump. The steps leading up to the second floor were rickety and in need of paint and repair, and there were cigarette butts everywhere. The room looked and smelled... More

I got stuck in Front Royal due to some vehicle problems, and stayed at this Motel. The staff and management treated everyone like they were family. They answered any questions about town and gave me suggestions where to go ear and sites to see. The rooms were some what dated but comfortable. The pool was good, the price is really... More

I stayed at Cool Harbor last weekend with my family when we had unexpectedly warm weather. It cannot compare with a new and corporate managed hotel in terms of amenities and overall "newness", as some of the furniture is a bit dated. But the attitude and friendliness of the owners, combined with the great price, and the small-town charm of... More

It really is hard to write a review for Cool Harbor Motel. We were cycling the Skyline Drive and would have preferred someplace closer to the Skyline, but those motels got horrible reviews and when we saw them, we were glad we didn't book a room in any of them. Getting to the Cool Harbor by bicycle was no picnic,... More
