This was a basic motel. No frills, but was clean. The beds however were horrible. The mattresses need replaced asap. That is what kept it from being a four star. If you are looking for a place to stay that is inexpensive and clean, this is it. Just beware the beds aren't the best. Another weird thing was when we... More

Looks very quant and inviting from the road and the office...Smoke free rooms smelled horrible. We stayed with 2 other couples all of our rooms stunk, they do not have the a/c units on so that maybe some of the issue. Passing through on our motorcycle trip and my pj's stunk from the room/ bedding it was horrible. Bathroom was... More

Stopped across the street and inquired about cost and availability. $65 for a huge King room, friendly fellow at the front desk. Quiet area, and close to just about everything in town, centrally located. The place is older than some, but for one night stay, on the cheap, it works for me.

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

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
