We stopped at a Virginia rest area and got a coupon book containing a good discount for the Winchester Comforrt Inn, better even than the AAA discount since we were traveling on a Tuesday.
The hotel is right off the interstate ramp and has two 2-story wings. We were in the wing closest to the highway -- perhaps the coupon gets you the booby prize room because we could hear the tractor trailers non-stop throughout the night climbing the hill or braking down the ramp. There was also a train that came through every hour that insisted on blowing its horn.
Other than the noise, the room was comfortable with neutral styling and comfortable beds. There was plenty of room and the AC worked fine (though I'd have liked it to be even louder to drown out the highway). The room was nice and clean and the ice and vending machines worked fine.
The TV was a CRT model, but worked fine and all the stations came in great.
The bathrooms were above average. Large shower with bump-out curtain. The shower head gave plentiful hot water and I couldn't hear my neighbors' showers. The toilet worked fine, and the bathroom was overall very clean.
My kids tried to use the pool, but said the bottom had leaves and stuff in it so they refused to go in.
The breakfast was OK, though they only serve until 9 so you have to be an early riser.
If you are heading North, make sure to fill your tank with gas as the price 5 miles north jumps 20 cents a gallon as you enter West Virginia and then Maryland.
As I packed the car, I counted the trucks passing by. There was an 18-wheeler every 5 seconds. Very busy trucking spot.
The staff was friendly and if this motel were teleported a quarter mile away I might haved rated it much higher. But if I'm back in the area I'm staying elsewhere where I can sleep through the night.
