I stayed at the Armory Quarters with my husband and our dog for our anniversary weekend in late June 2013. We wanted to spend time at Harpers Ferry National Park and this seemed like a great option as it is only a 5 minute drive from the park. Our rate was $150 per night + tax which was reasonable given the location and pet-friendliness.
Now to the negatives - there was a lot of dust and debris (dead bugs) under the bed - my dog started to sniff as soon as we got into the room and I made the mistake of looking under there - wish I hadn't! We arrived late in the day, had a pleasant dinner at the Canal House Cafe and then made our way back to our room. It was dark at this point and not one lamp or lighting fixture was working! It was a rough first night trying to maneuver in the dark. We were able to plug in a lamp the next morning but it would have been nice to come into a property prepared room. Final comment - be prepared to BYO toiletries such as soap, shampoo, etc. I was told that the accommodations did not include breakfast but I've never heard of a place beyond a campground not having basic bars of soap and mini shampoo bottles!
