“Great Hotel, Great Price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

It had been a long day riding and we were extremely tired. The Holiday Inn Express was a welcomed stop. The front desk staff was very helpful, the weather was rainy and they allowed us to park our motorcycles under the cover and they said they would keep an eye on them through the night.

We checked in, had a couple beers in the bar area to unwind. They had cheap happy hour specials going on, After a couple drinks we headed back to the room. We found the room spotless and very comfortable. When we checked out in the morning we were considering having breakfast there but only had coffee ... I found a Waffle House down the road and I love WH breakfast, we don't have any where I live so when I get a chance we go. I am sure the rest at the Holiday Inn would have been just as good as the rest of our experience!

We usually stay at the Holiday Inn in Front Royal but because we were late in making reservations during the height of the leaf peeping season, we ended up in Stephens City. We had an excellent room -- it was very nice and restful. Our breakfast was good although the only quibble I had was no non-sugar sweeteners (the night before -- there was plenty for our tea so it must have been the morning rush).

It was very crowded but there was no problem checking in, getting around, getting breakfast and checking out.

The staff are this Hotel, from the front desk (Verunice and Chris) to the Housekeepers, they all made me feel like family in the mist of "Sandy". The Breakfast was wonderful. The hotel was very clean. I will go back there.

The room was nice, in great chape, spacious and comfortable. It was clean as well. The front desk girl was neither particularly friendly nor very efficient. The assigned room did not match my reservation request, she also did not offer any upgrade options - for a platinum level PC membership. I needed to print my boarding passes for the flight next day, so I went down to use the "business center". The computer and the screen appear decades old, extremly slow and above all the internet connection wasn't working at all! I reported the problem to an older man who joined the young girl at the front desk. He was trying to solve the problem by calling their provider, but was not successful. In the end I used my ipad to check-in for my flight, then emailed the boarding passes to the front desk where they printed them for me. When they invested a lot of money into (a very nice) remodelling of the rooms, they could have spared a few more bucks for a new computer.

In the past 6 years, I have gone to this area as a retreat from my everyday woes. I discovered the hotel, years ago, quite by accident. I have stayed there about 20 times. The hotel is clean, the employees are very helpful & courteous, and the manager, Robert Nicoletti, is SUPERB. All of his employees love him! The south side of the hotel has a good view of the countryside & mountains. This is the HOT side! Might want to stay on the north side in the heat of summer. The breakfast is adequate. There are two restaurants within walking distance that have GREAT food: Roma Italian & Butcher Block Buffet. Check them out! Wi-Fi is very good & there is a desk top computer with printer in the lobby. 24 hour coffee!

Room Tip: All rooms are about the same. Suites have more furniture, but are not worth the extra cost

The hotel was easy to get to and located in a good spot. It was very clean and the breakfest was very good and the rooms were excellent.It was a very good bang for the buck . There were a lot of good places to eat within walking distance. There were also several Gas stations close buy to fuel up for the trip. My pick for a place to eat was Roma's great.

This is the best Holiday Inn Express in which I have stayed. The staff makes you feel at home and welcome. The hotel is clean and has a great location. I would definitely stay there again if in that area.
