“Absolutely Amazing Hotel and wonderful customer service!”
Reviewed March 19, 2011

We were in Front Royal on a small weekend roadtrip for our anniversary. I called ahead to make reservations after researching hotels on Tripadvisor. The reviews do not do this place any justice. Its truly the best hotel stay I have had so far in traveling. I will reccomend this hotel and this area to others. If you visit this location be sure to join the Priority Member Club and also visit Houlihans that adjoins the hotel.

We spent one night here. It was an excellent stopover but is a good distance out of the town and you need a car to get there. The is an attached golf course so there were lots of golfers staying. We were given a huge room and dinner in the evening was good. Free wi-fi was very useful.

I was on the road and needed a one night stay to crash en route on a trip. I looked up hotels in about a 20 mile radius on TA and this one stuck out. The reviews are spot on - this hotel is beautiful and clean, the service was great and the rate was one of the best in the area. It provided just the respite I needed to finish my journey. Would definitely stay there again.

I stayed in a suite (w/ 2 Queen beds) over Thanksgiving 2010. The hotel looked grand from a distance, sitting next to the golf course and the inside, including the lobby, was new, and nicely-decorated. Check-in was a breeze and the staff were attentive and friendly. Our 5th floor suite was spacious and accommodated 3 adults in our group, with room to spare. The bedroom overlooked the golf course, and the living room couch was a fullsize pullout bed. The bathroom was clean, new, and well-stocked with toiletries, with a walk-in shower. There were 2 flatscreen TVs in the suite (one in the bedroom, one in the living room) and a microwave oven and fridge were provided. The hotel had a gym (4 exercise machines in good condition) and a lap pool on the lower levels which were put to good use. There was also a business center with computers and printer in the lobby. If there were any complaints, it was the lack of free breakfast, but Holiday Inn allowed us to purchase a $20 voucher for breakfast at the attached Houlihan's restaurant for $10 (we paid the difference if we spent over $20). Overall, this was among the best hotels I've stayed for travel.

I booked this room less than a week before our stay. I was actually surprised there was a room available because it is near Skyline Drive and it was peak foliage. We needed a handicapped room and when we arrived (12:30) it was ready and we were allowed to check in. We had a king-sized bed and it was extremely comfortable; large bathroom and perfect for a handicapped person. It was extremely clean. The people at the front desk were extremely helpful and very knowledgeable about restaurants and places to go in the area. Because our stay was to see the foliage on Skyline Drive, the price was obviously higher but it did include a full breakfast for two mornings which was excellent. The location was a little further from Skyline Drive than I thought but that was really not a negative. The hotel is only two years old. There is an exercise room with a treadmill and some bikes and also an indoor pool and jacuzzi. There is a patio that overlooks a golf course and the mountains. All in all it was a wonderful place to stay.

sro54,
Thank you for visiting Front Royal to see the Fall Foliage. Did you get a chance to experience any non-foliage related activities that Front Royal offers? Wine sampling at Fox Meadow Winery or a walk through Main Street, perhaps? We look forward to having you back as a guest next time you are in town!

We were in town for a wedding and chose this hotel because of it's close proximity to Shenandoah Golf & Country Club. The room was clean and modern with a view of the golf course. The staff was friendly and seemed to enjoy their jobs. I frequently rely on Trip Advisor for accurate reviews of hotels and resorts...once again, I was pleased with my choice.
