Front desk service was excellent. Only downside is that rooms don't have a mini fridge or microwave.

Booked here as I was in town for a friend's wedding, didn't want to spend a lot of money, and wanted to be within walking distance of downtown. The hotel was everything I needed and it fit the budget.

The room was pretty clean, though there were some hairs in the bathroom floor. The staff was very friendly, and everything worked as it should (though the coffee pot was pretty slow). I found the bed to be surprisingly comfortable.

There is a pool, though I did not use it. I did sample the continental breakfast, which is fairly small, but it's complimentary and will do the trick to get you up and out the door with something in your belly.

Altogether if ever in Staunton, Va., again, I will certainly look to this hotel. It's fairly no-frills, and it's not a place in which you'll want to hang out, but Staunton has too much to see and do for you to stay in your hotel room anyway.

Location convenient to downtown but not from where we needed to be.
Overall value was fair to services rendered, but breakfast choices were very limited.

We stayed two nights and have no complaints. The staff made us feel welcome. It has a very nice pool. The breakfast was cereal, juice and small bagels-- nothing special. They should consider decorating the breakfast rooms. The room was clean.

Room Tip: Get a room on the 3rd or 4th floor for a good view.

What you pay for is what you get. Expect to hear any and all activity outside, including doors shutting, luggage rolling, etc. very loud water system. Ie. you know when other rooms flush the toilet. We did not use pool but it looked clean. Breakfast room felt very grungy. Room relatively clean. Other options sold out for us so we were happy to have this option but wouldn't otherwise go back.

Stayed two nights and found the accommodations very comfortable. Room was clean and well kept. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They had no problem with me leaving my car in their parking lot after I checked out so that I could walk downtown for a few hours. Room rates were competitive and I got a nice discount with my AARP card. I didn't try the pool but it looked well maintained. The daily breakfast selections included with the price of the room were about par for the course; the dining area was spotless. I plan on coming back to the area to conduct more genealogical research and will probably stay here again.

stayed based on glowing reviews at another website - bad idea. Then, they did not publish my negative review, hmmm... Hotel very old & worn overall, elevator was jerky. Late (10pm-ish) arrival, but only saw one guest and the front desk guy. The place felt spooky empty - like I was about to be on an unsolved-crime tv show. I wedged a chair under the door handle to sleep. Next am early, I saw many strange looking characters wandering around the vicinity. Stay elsewhere!

Room Tip: there are none - go somewhere else!
