“Nice Experience at the Holiday Inn”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Updated, clean, comfortable hotel close to the business site I visited. Restful bed, nice bathroom. Abby at the front desk was helpful and friendly. Starbucks and other good eateries were close by. I would choose this hotel again.

Thanks to all of you at the Front Royal Holiday Inn for your contributions to a very successful Vendor Fair. Everyone felt well taken care of and enjoyed the beautiful accommodations.
Please extend a warm and heartfelt thank you to all of the staff who worked with our group. They did an excellent job.

Hannah and Abby handled our last minute changes with ease. Mary, Lucy, Becky and their group pay awesome attention to the details.
Thomas, Shannon, and the entire Houlihan group were just unbelievable. Many in attendance commented on how they handled
our large crowd better than any place they’d ever been served.

I am glad we chose your group to pull off our event. Every one of you made it special, and we look forward to working with you in the future.
I don’t have emails for everyone, so please pass on our appreciation to those that I can’t reach.

Sincerely,

Excellent stay. Clearly new, updated, and better than the other place around looked.

The restaurant is Houlihan's, but is locally run and is better than the average chain, and they go out of their way to do well. Food was remarkably good even ate there three days. given the limited selections in this area, you won't do better, I'm fairly sure.

Another nice touch--their little snack/convenience shop next to the front desk had prices that were similar to a 7-11 or similar store, not the usual ripoff prices seen in hotels.

hikingfamilyphilly,

I appreciate your review of your recent stay. Your review really validates our efforts here at the hotel as you mention many of the things we pride ourselves on the most. The made-from-scratch food in Houlihans, the affordable prices in our lobby store, our clean, new appearance of the hotel are all items that we take great pride in and we feel great to know that you noticed. Thank you very much for choosing our property and we hope to have you back soon.

Safe travels,

My wife and I decided to stay at this hotel for a night as a small get away. On first entering the hotel, the lobby was expansive, clean and inviting. They had tables setup in there and actually had a family playing cards. There was also a fire going to make it very homey.

The staff was very friendly on check-in and made sure we had everything we needed.

The room was very clean and comfortable. The linens were fresh and the bathroom immaculate. Some of the rooms even have a gorgeous view of the golf course.

There is also a Houlihan's restaurant attached to the hotel that offered good food and a full bar for a decent price.

Overall, a very nice place to stay that is set in the northern part of the Shenandoah Mountains. Highly recommended if you are in that area.

This is our 3rd stay at this hotel and, as before, it was wonderful. The room is clean and quiet. We had a view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and it was beautiful. I really like staying at this hotel. We ate at the restaurant and the food was great. If you are in this area, I recommend this hotel. They don't serve a "free" breakfast, but I am ok with that since most of the "free" breakfasts are gross.

Room Tip: A room at the front gives you a better view.

kkitt,

Thank you for your most recent stay, of the many stays, at our hotel. I especially appreciate your comments regarding the beautiful views form the hotel, especially the southern facing views of the mountains and the golf course. A lot of time and effort went into picking the perfect location for the hotel in order to give our guests the best possible views of the Blue Ridge. I am going to share your comments with our entire staff, including the restaurant staff, so that they will know that our repeat guests love what we are doing and so their strong guest service efforts may be validated. Be sure to let us know if there is anything we can do for you to better your stay experience. We are here to serve you. Thank you.

We stayed here for one night on our college road trip through the southern states. We were given a beautiful room with 2 queen beds and a gorgeous view of the golf course. Pool was warm and spa clean and worked well. We dined at Houlihans which adjoins the hotel. Very good food and reasonably priced. Two of us forgot our toothbrushes but the lovely person at the front desk remedied this. Hotel is brand new, rooms and baths very spacious. Highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Request a quiet room with a view and if possible the management will oblige.
