213 South Holliday Street, Strasburg, VA 22657
We had booked two double rooms [we are a family of four with two teenagers], 1 night, for a total of $166.60, which I think is very good value for the money.
On October 18th, 2012, we drove from our home outside Philadelphia down to Strasburg in Virginia, and made the mistake to go through Baltimore and Washington DC which was completely jammed with traffic. The trip should have taken about 4 hours, if we’d follow the roads that MapQuest pointed out, but it took about 7hours instead, so we couldn’t try their dinner menu. Anyway we just wanted to get a good night sleep before continuing the next day up in the Appalachian Mountains on the Skyline Drive through the Shenandoah National Park, watching trees in all shades of colors from green to red. That was really gorgeous!
The experience of this hotel was amazing and we would have spent many more nights here if we’d known beforehand what a nice hotel it was. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly and very helpful. The hotel offers very nice and clean rooms with comfortable beds. We came down to the bar a little late [after they had closed it] that evening but they “opened” it just for us and we could sit down with the owner for a little chat while sipping a glass of wine, which made us feel at home. The next morning we had a great breakfast [buffet or a la carte], before driving into the mountains.
Thank You! We will come back!

THE SHENANDOAH NATIONAL PARK AREA. Strasburg is just about 7 miles from the starting point [Front Royal is the actual name of the little village were the “Skyline Drive” starts] of The Shenandoah Valley which is both a geographic valley and cultural region of western Virginia and West Virginia in the United States. The valley is bounded to the east by the Blue Ridge Mountains, to the west by the eastern front of the Ridge-and-Valley Appalachians. The cultural region covers a larger area that includes all of the valley plus the Virginia highlands to the west, and the Roanoke Valley to the south.
Our last stop in the south was in the town Roanoke, before we went back up again to Philadelphia via highway 81 north, which is a very easy, fast and convenient road.
The word Shenandoah is of unknown Native American origin. The most popular, romanticized belief is that the name comes from a Native American expression for "Beautiful Daughter of the Stars", which I think is very appropriate since it’s a real star among parks.
