We stayed at the Howard Johnson in Staunton after touring the Skyline drive, Blue Ridge mountains etc of Virginia.
OK, so it's not a top quality motel. The breakfasts are not brilliant.
However, the swimming pool is great, the staff are kind and considerate. The room was cleaned every day. The free trolly bus stop is just nearby if you want a tour of the town complete with comentary.
The rooms are cheap, just $58. But the outstanding thing about the place is the position. It is safe. There is a huge car park (free). It is within easy walking distance of town, in fact it is in town and there are plenty of good restaurants and variety from Italian to a highly rated Indian. It is a mini gourmet town. There is the Copy Shakespearian theatre. A copy Anne Hathaway cottage. A cinema and lots of little museums and businesses. It is within easy driving distance of many other locations, as it was originaly a major rail head terminus, before the Americans fell in love with the car. The town is small town America but with decent architecture and a nice comfortable welcoming feel about it. We ended staying five days before struggling on to the despertion and extremes of Washington,( which we instantly regretted. )
