“review (of course! what else?)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Adequate, but far from excellent. The breakfast was chintzy: margarine, but no butter; watery orange juice, with no flavor or substance; cheap syrup for the prematurely-thawed waffles. The whole ,place could stand updating and repairing, as with the parking lot.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

This is a great alternative to the pricey Stonewall Jackson Hotel in downtown Staunton. HoJo Express is only .3 mile from the downtown restaurants, shops, the Blackfriar Playhouse, etc. And you can't beat the price. We paid $53 for a very nice, large, clean room with king sized bed, microwave, and refrigerator. When we asked the desk clerk what was for breakfast (included in the price), he said "carbs." And he was right. But there was good coffee, apples and bananas along with the usual waffles, cereal, breads and juice. All in all, a very good deal if you are touring downtown Staunton or going to the Blackfriar playhouse. It's even on the free trolley line!!.

Very convenient to the free trolley that takes you around the town. Room was quiet and clean. This was our first trip to Staunton and wish we had more time to see more of the town. Price was right Would stay there again. This was a random pick and turned out well for us.
