This property is definitely a cut or 2 above the "average" Holiday Inn, maybe because it's a relatively new property (opened 2008). The amenities, including a business suite good for printing out business/airline documents and a restaurant, are good to excellent, unexpected in this price range.
Their people were quite accommodating when I had to delay my arrival in Winchester by a day, owing to a late-season 4" snowfall that caused the cancellation of the event that we were supposed to attend. Even though my reservation was pre-paid, there was no issue about changing the arrival/departure dates.
The location, on US 522 (Front Royal Pike) just off the US 17/50/522 interchange with I-81, is very convenient to Shenandoah University and is not far at all from the historic sites of both downtown and the surrounding vicinity. A relatively short drive south brings one to the north entrance of Skyline Drive/Shenandoah National Park.
Overall, a good "base" from which to do many activities in the Shenandoah Valley.
