We stayed at the hotel for a few days while visiting nearby Mt. Airy and the Shelton Vineyards (about 1/2 mile from the property of the hotel). It was WONDERFUL.
Saying this is the best hotel I have stayed at is an understatement. The staff was incredibly friendly, the place was IMMACULATE, and everything was just perfect. The room was VERY big, more than enough space. They have a mini-fridge and microwave in the rooms, PPV ordering options, a comfortable couch for a seating area to eat / watch TV, a great workstation, and even tray tables to eat or read while you are in bed. Also offer in room video gaming for the kids.
Hotel is right next to the highway, but you never hear a sound. QUIET and great views on all the sides of the hotel - as we exchanged views with a couple across the hall and there side was great as well. VERY NICE indoor heated pool and a great office area near the lobby to print / fax / copy and use the internet. Everywhere in this hotel is clean.
The hotel won a Connie award, which is the highest honor that any of the Hampton chain hotels can get. It is on display in their lobby, across from the front desk, and makes a cool photo op too, LoL. When you stay, you will absolutely will see why they got it.
Their breakfast options were very, very good. They had cereals, oatmeals, bagels, danish, different fresh fruits, OJ, coffees, apple juice, milk, pastries, and they have these great full breakfasts that heat in minutes. They have over 8 different full breakfast options, and they rotate them each day. There are usually 4 different ones out each morning so you can pick, and have as many as you'd like. Breakfast burritos, omelettes, sausage muffins, pancakes, etc. Unbelievable breakfast for a hotel. Everyone there those mornings were raving about it.
They also offer grab n go pre-made breakfast bags, if you gotta take something and run out the front door. That I hadn't seen before, and was actually pretty handy idea.
They have a wine bar INSIDE the hotel where you can taste wines from the Shelton Vineyards. Very nice place and its open most evenings I believe (the wine bar, the winery closes at 5/6). The wines are indeed good. We purchased 3 bottles to take home.
We only contacted the front desk once when the toilet got clogged, manager sent someone up in less than 2 minutes, and by 5 mins. problem was taken care of. Very friendly worker as well.
There is a gas station that is about 75 yards from the hotel. They have a food place inside and a Dairy Queen too. I think they stay open until sometime in the evening.
There is a pizza place advertised in the hotel info. guide they leave in your room. We got food from them one night for a GREAT deal. 2 pizzas with 3 toppings each, breadsticks with sauce, a sub sandwich, choice of 3 kinds of wings, plus chips and a two liter of soda for $30. Delivered very quickly and the food was great. We put the rest in the fridge and finished it off throughout the next days.
We had left a do not disturb sign on our door each day, as we didn't need anything done. Each day when we'd get back, we'd find a note card signed by the maid saying that she had been by - and if we needed anything at all simply to call the desk and it would be done right away. Very courteous of the hotel to at least show that they are indeed caring of your needs.
Very close to Mt. Airy. Not big on Mt. Airy after visiting there (due to the people, not the sites), but if going there or to Dobson or anywhere - or just want a quiet place to go to with a VERY nice hotel stay, I suggest this place. They are also not far from the Bright-Leaf Drive-In. VERY old fashioned, but no frills drive-in that was a TON of fun. We had not been to a place like that ever and it was a great price (like $3) to watch the movies.
Overall, this is indeed the best of any hotel that we have ever stayed at.
