“very poor condition”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2014 via mobile

Shower ceiling fall into bathtub blocking the drain. Room smelled. Very small room with no closet, hitting the hangers as you get out of bed. Room was dirty. Light switches were very dirty, not cleaned in years. Hair left on bathroom floor from previous guest. Desk people were very nice and competent. Exterior sign stated recently renovated. They missed the room we used. WI-FI was very weak in the room. The price was ok for an Econo Lodge, if the ceiling was not falling and the light switches were cleaned. They may have given us a "newly renovated" room and gotten a better review. ******************************************************************** Will stay away from other Econo Lodges because of this experience.

We were pleasantly surprised by the nice clean room we received for the price. The TV, Fridg, Micro, etc. All seems to be new. Also the carpet. It is still an old motel but it's obvious that someone is trying to make it comfortable. The Breakfast was adequate. The service fast and friendly. I would definitely stay here again. Also the location is nice, lots of restaurants.

Room Tip: Our parking spot was under the stairs. Try to avoid this so you can load/unload easier.

Been there a couple of times and liked it very much. Will go back again. Was on my way back to Canada, traveling from Georgia. Hotel was nice and very affordable. Liked the surroundings also, nice town, quiet and friendly.

The location was convenient, I thought I would give it a try as it was inexpensive. It was not bad for the price. The downside, I had a king size bed but two very small flat pillows so nothing to lean up against when trying to sit up in bed and use laptop. There was one small window but it was so filthy that you couldn't see out of it. It might have been a film on the inside that can only be fixed by replacing the window. There were a lot of people sitting outside their room on the balcony drinking beer so it was a bit loud also.

The hotel is conveniently located off the interstate and offers affordable accommodations, but leaves some to be desired. The bathroom was not very clean - lots of stray hairs - and the bed was very uncomfortable. The continental breakfast did not provide many options. The lock on the door was also broken.

No security lock on door and this is a motel. Contractor motel. Water spots on ceiling and visible patch work. Rock hard pillows. Hard mattress. Mattress pad that bunches up. Mold in bath tub in and around mat, which looked like it had not been moved in ages. Exterior need some attention. Pool was clean though. For the price there are other choices in the area that are better for an overnight stay while on the road.

Location is very convenient; near several eateries, the mall, grocery and gas. Price was very low. The clerk at check in (David) was friendly and talkative. He offered an updated interior room, which was fine. I originally wanted an exterior room for fresh-air and mountain view purposes, but was informed that these rooms were very old and not nice. The interior room was okay, but there was no view and it was depressing; we had to hold down the flusher to get the toilet to flush and there were several black hairs in the bathtub. Otherwise clean; microwave and fridge worked great and TV was updated and new with many channels. Wi-fi was strong and outstanding. Pool was nice, but cold. Breakfast was a few processed baked goods and bran cereal, so we went out. Okay for a one-night stop, but probably won't stay again as there are many updated hotels nearby.

Room Tip: Ask for an updated room; even though they are not fantastic, I can only imagine how bad the other ro...

My apology for less favorable impression of our hotel left on you during your brief visit with us. The fact is all our rooms recently upgraded and well appointed. It is just the matter of preference for our guests weather they like interior or exterior corridor building.

I'm glad that you liked our location and amenities like free WIFI.

Hope that you will consider staying with us again whenever you are visiting Shenandoah Valley.
