“Nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

While this is a very nice hotel, their restaurant is nothing to brag about. The restaurant breakfast menu was rather limited (one type of bagel, one type of muffin) and that was a turn-off, especially when you are in a 'pay' place. The hotels that offer free morning breakfasts have a much better choice. The limited so-so menu was a turn-off. They should dump the restaurant. Rooms very good though. Suggest you eat elsewhere if you stay there. Food likely better at the nearby Costco.

This hotel is in a good location. A lot of shopping near by( TJ Maxx, Gabriel Bros, Target. Walmart, Super Kmart, Apple Blossom Mall) a lot of fast food kind of places- KFC, Taco Bell, McDonalds.... If you were traveling with a baseball or soccer team? This is a good spot. Many food choices for kids. The conservatory is right around the corner, downtown Winchester is about 10 min away, but I think it's way better to be here . This hotel is perfect. VERY clean and modern. Good bathroom, good bed. I am very picky when it comes to hotels. I get grossed out easily. I promise- this hotel is good. The food here is good as well- and it's very inexpensive! I for sure would stay here again.

I went on Priceline and booked this hotel for a trip that we were making to Pa.. When I saw the hotel's name, I was supprised to see that it was the number one hotel in the Winchester, Va. area. The booking came with a $20.00 credit towards a made to order breakfast. That made the cost of the room a GREAT deal!!!!

The hotel is fairly new and is well located right off of I-81. It has won awards from Holiday Inn management for being one of the top hotels in their chain.

The lobby was warm and inviting with a fire going in the fireplace. Check In was quick and the clerk was polite and anxious to help.

The rooms were typical of the Holiday Inn chain. Our room was very comfortable and very clean.

There are many restaurants in the immediate area. All in all, for location, comfort and price, this hotel ticked all of the boxes. If you are travelling through, I would recommend this hotel with no reservations.

Very comfortable, clean and quiet. Very convenient to I 81 . Check in was so easy and the desk clerk was very friendly and helpful. On location is a restaurant for dinner and breakfast, didn't eat dinner here because the prices were too high and very limited vegetarian menu.

One of the best Holiday Inns, we usually stay at Hampton of Fairfield Inns.
Though I booked ahead I found a coupon in one of those travel books you see at rest stops. Desk clerk was not thrilled to give discount since I was not a walk-in. But when I suggested I'd cancel and then "walk in" she gave in!
Had dinner and a glass of wine at the restaurant that was convenient after a long drive. The restaurant lights a bit too bright, hurts the atmosphere.
Rooms were very spacious and clean.

Spent a short stay for business, and was very happy with get me here. The room was clean and comfortable, with satellite TV providing plenty of options, and in room Internet with quite passable speed. The staff was warm and friendly, willing to accommodate and assist at every opportunity. We were even able to preorder breakfast the night before, even as a to go option, in order to get to morning meetings faster.

The only drawback is that the area around the hotel is a bit lacking. Within walking distance there are very limited dining options, and the hotel is located on a major traffic route.

All in all, though, if you have to go to Winchester, this hotel is an excellent economical option.
