This review is just for the room. I did not use the pool or restaurant. Pros: Location - Down the street from a shopping center with food and 15 minutes away from Skyline Drive. There is a gas station right beside the property and it is far enough away from the interstate that you cannot hear the noise. I am...

The staff was fantastic. The hotel had been decorated in a Halloween décor and well done. The room was very clean and comfortable. The business center was clean and in excellent condition. I will repeat it the staff was excellent and really made the stay comfortable. The breakfast had fresh fruit available.

Good place to begin trip in Blue Ridge Parkway (Skyline Drive) Room is large enough, quite and clean Hotel is located in a couple of miles from Front Royal so to select a diner you should use car. On the other hand this is advantage – absolutely quite. A strange situation with breakfast: surprisingly we knew that continental breakfast cost...

We were very tired as we drove into Front Royal, it was rainy and near dark so we grabbed the first hotel we spotted. What a lucky grab!

Non-smoking hotel that has outdoor designated smoking areas. Very clean, well kept, comfortable and very quiet hotel -- very impressive because it hosts events, such as weddings, (which there was one during our stay) and, for example, we were there for my husband's high school reunion RMA which hosted cocktail hour the last night in the ballroom. Ballroom and meeting...

We love to hike Shenandoah during all seasons of the year, this is our go to stay when spending a weekend in Front Royal and hiking in the park. It is clean, comfortable, the food is great even room service is very good. It is convenient to the northern park entrance and overlooks a beautiful new golf course.

I was impressed with this place. Not always am with Holiday Inn but this one had a lovely, characterful bar, decent pool and the location next to a golf course with views of the countryside was excellent. Was the first night of a week and a half trawl through Virginia and we thoroughly enjoyed it. No complaints

We used this property as our home base on a family trip to the Luray area. Although it was a bit of a trek to the caverns and river raft co. it was close to I-66 and a good old-fashioned drive-in movie (a real draw). Our suite had a bedroom separate from the living area and the children slept on...

We stayed at this Holiday Inn for 3 nights in a double queen room overlooking the golf course.
