“Nice place to stay for visiting the Shenandoah Valley”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

This is a great place to stay if you plan to visit the mountains of Virginia. It is close to Washington DC and Luray, VA. You are only a short drive to the Skyline Drive. This Hampton Inn is similar to most. However, the staff goes above and beyond to help. Our checking was very quick and the gentlemen even changed our room after he informed us that there would be smoking rooms on the floor that we were originally supposed to stay on He also provided a discount coupon for Luray Caverns after we mentioned that would be our destination the folling morning.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms that face the interstate and don't stay on the floors that have smoking rooms if tha...

This location is convenient to the North entrance of Shenandoah National Park. We stayed here for one night and then drove south through the park the next day. The rooms were nice and clean. The breakfast area was large and the food selection was great. We did not use the indoor pool, but it looked nice. The free wi-fi had a good signal and was easy to use. It was a good value for the location and everything included.

We like Hampton Inn and decided to stay here while on vacation for Skyline Drive and Luray Caverns. This hotel is at the north end of Front Royal and there's really nothing within walking distance other than a McDonald's and a gas station. So you'll need to get in the car to go anywhere. Also, there is no direct entrance to the hotel from the road, you need to turn in where you see the McDonald's. Another reviewer pointed this out and it was very helpful!

People also mentioned asking for a room facing the parking lot and not the highway due to traffic noise - I did this and while our room was quiet, we had an ugly view of the health club next door, which looks like a storage building. But if your room is further down, you'd have a nice view of a hill though, but we weren't so lucky. I would probably have preferred the highway side after all!

The hotel is decorated very modern - green walls and dark floors. The breakfast area was small but spacious enough and it was never full when we went. Breakfast was very nice - lots to choose from. I have to eat gluten-free and I was very pleased to find a fruit salad and yogurt so I was able to get something to eat each morning. Other offerings: oatmeal, grits, scrambled eggs, waffles, bagels, pastries, cereal, apple juice, orange juice.

Our room was clean and quiet, we had no issues with noise. Beds were comfortable, linens were clean. Curtains and shades were clean and blocked out the light. TV had very good reception and lots of channel choices. Internet was quite slow though, which was annoying when we were trying to quickly figure out directions on where we were going. We didn't see housekeeping at any point but noticed they didn't restock the cups in the bathroom one day, which was a minor annoyance.

The in-room coffee maker is located in the bathroom, which I found quite gross even though it looked clean... I don't know why this was done as there were extra outlets available at the desk.

We had a 2 queen non-smoking room, and the air unit by the window would blow onto the bed next to it, and if you were sitting at the desk. So if you have it on overnight you may want to pull the curtain over it a little to reduce the draft.

All-in-all it was a nice hotel, and considering the options in Front Royal (a LOT of motels), it's certainly worth it.

We stayed here the evening prior to traveling the Skyline Drive. The staff was very friendly upon check-in, and they had warm cookies by the office. The breakfast was great, the room was clean and large, and the bed was comfortable.

We stopped in to stay the night before traveling the Skyline Highway to see the fall color. The room was a king and was very clean and the service was great. The hotel is very close to the interstate and our room was on the highway side. With the air conditioner on I could. Not hear any traffic. The hotel is located close to restaurants and Walmart just about 1/2 mile away. I would stay again. I would rate it a five stars if it was not right next to the interstate. If I stay again I will get a room on the other side of the hotel away from the room just in case there is heavy truck traffic.

We have stayed here many times over the past few years and have had great experiences every time. However, since we were traveling during the peak time in October our usual room was unavailable. So, we decided to shop around for a better room. We looked into staying at a popular change down the road and were shocked when we learned that their prices were double to those of the Hampton's. We ended up staying in the king bed room with whirlpool tub and brought in a roll away. This worked for the few nights we were here but we like our usual room better. We are always satisfied after we leaving the Hampton and having a great hotel always helps our trip. The only complaint would be the mattresses are not that comfortable and we all woke up with sore backs. The Hampton Inn in Richmond, VA near the airport has the best mattresses ever. They are super pillowtop and so comfortable. I wish this Hampton would upgrade to those mattresses, it would help give us each a better nights sleep. The continental breakfast is filling and free, you can't beat that! We will always stay here when we come to front royal.

Room Tip: Ask for parking lot side, to avoid the highway noise at night.

We are Hilton Diamond Honors members who frequently stay at Hamptons and this is one of the finest Hanpton Inns we have experienced. Thestay got off to a good start with capable help at the front desk and we experienced no letdowns during the remainder of our stay. Would stay there any time it is convenient to our travel plans.
