“Good hotel with food / gas within walking distance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Stayed 1/5. Just off interstate and easy to find. Near gas station, convenience store and several fast food joints. Adequate well lit parking. Very personable desk clerk will check you in efficiently in large well appointed lobby. Exterior is very well maintained.

Rooms are large with all amenities. Beds are comfortable with crisp clean sheets and plenty of pillows. Carpets are unstained. Walls are clean and bright. Bathroom was above average. Shower has plenty of hot water and good water pressure.

Breakfast is typical of better Holiday Inns with hot food and fresh pastries. Good place to stay.

What a nice hotel. A good price, clean room, good restaurant. Check in staff was very friendly. I got upgraded to a massive room. Room was quite with no street noise. I would stay here again without question.

Wife and I spent the night there last night--very friendly and helpful front desk people--nice clean room with very comfortable bed--bathroom was clean and the room did not smell of air freshener spray which was a big plus to us. Breakfast was good and fresh and even the high chairs for the children were clean and not sticky and did not have dried food on them--high five on that one-I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family.

The hotel served it's purpose well. A good priced place to stay that had a pool for my nephew to swim that was close to family for a night stay. Requested an early check in, and when we arrived at noon the agent looked in the computer and told us a room was ready. Only encountered her and the check out agent, but both were very nice!

The room was nice and clean for the 5 of us. 2 double beds (little hard), pull out sofa (actually quite comfy!), plus three chairs. Plenty of seating which was nice. TV could be seen from couch, but would be better to be more in the middle of the room. Mini fridge (that had some drinks from previous people still in it), and microwave beside "living" area.

The pool area was great. Decent sized pool for a hotel, and a great hot tub. My nephew (as well as us) had a great time in it. Stocked with towels, enough chairs, and a restroom for convenience.

Breakfast was good. Cheese omelets, gravy and biscuits, sausage, bread, pancake maker (cakes were surprisingly good), juice, coffee, yogurt, cereal, milk and a few other things. The food was good, and perfect for our needs.

A few things right there. Italian restaurant across the street, as well as a Sheetz/Arby's right out front, and Mcdonalds down that road a 1/2 mile or so. There were a few other things around, but that's really all that I remember standing out to me.

If we are ever in need of a hotel in the area again, we'll surely stay here. Was a ittle annoyed by the drinks in the fridge as I wonder just how clean things are (if they can't even open the door to look in it), but we didn't really notice any other non clean areas (some peeling wallpaper, but nothing major). The pool, convenience, and friendliness makes this place a nice place to stay.

Our family stayed here as we have done in the past, while in transit to destination. It is convienetly located, with Arby's and a Sheetz adjacent. Check in was easy, room was very clean, shower had hot water at good pressure. Pool was clean and good temperature. Only issue was with hot tub. Water felt good but no jets due to missing control knob. The beds were comfortable, and AC/heater worked well, room was quiet. In the morning, breakfast was very good, as in the past. And the attendant was always on top of things.

In the future, we will stay here again, as we have no reason to go anywhere else.

This was a 2-day weekend stay. The staff was very helpful. The room was excellent (on the 2nd floor). Breakfast was very good with a wide selection. Quiet, clean and comfortable. We did not try the pool or fitness room.

Hotel is located in an area surrounded by retail locations. It is at the intersection of US Rt 522 and VA Rt 37 (A four lane divided highway that serves as a by-pass around Winchester). With that in mind, I can say that it is in a quiet atmosphere. Room 321.

Using online booking & a special rate, I was able to have a room for $75/day plus all of the usual fees & taxes. One thing that I have not experienced at any hotel is that they charge you the full price of the room (stayed 5 days) up front & advise you that if you must check out earlier than planned, it will take 7-10 days for you to receive your refund.

Hotel is clean in all areas. It has three floors, none of which have a “view.” The room is rectangular shaped with HVAC at one end of room & the bathroom at the other end. The bathroom has no heat! It is a comfortable room with all of your usual necessities. In- room movies give you a good selection, but they are expensive. An indoor pool is small & doesn’t open until 0900. It is inviting though. Exercise room is typical for a hotel this size. Several machines, a work-out bench and free-weights.

The breakfast area is your typical Holiday Inn Express eating area. Not much in the way of healthy eating, but sufficient for most people.

Staff are friendly & helpful.

Wireless & wired internet access available with daily access code. Code Changes once per week on Sundays. Service was acceptable most hours of the day. I’m just spoiled because I have such good speeds at home!

Stairwells clean. Stairwell doors slam shut. Slow draining shower/bathtub. More than adequate number of electrical recepticles

Downtown Winchester is easy to get to via several routes.
