“Beware the Noise”
Reviewed August 3, 2011

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.

Room Tip: Stay away from the highway ramp

Decent room for the price, and very accommodating staff. Our location was very close to the stairwell, but the noise bothered only a bit. Biggest problem was the AC compressor kept switching off and on all night, making for very troubled sleep. Also the shower was very difficult to adjust. Room appeared to be very clean. Breakfast was fine, and when I headed back after hours for more coffee, the staff was very helpful. Parking was adequate. We did not try the outdoor pool, but definitely appreciated it.

We paid 89$ for our stay here. The staff was friendly, breakfast was included. The room was nice and clean. Definitely worth it for the price.

I have praised the Comfort Inn in North Winchester (Exit 317) before,
We visited there June 15 and 16 and found they have gotten even better.
They still have the same friendly manager and staff and the motel is still clean and quiet, but now all rooms have been refurbished. New beds, new furniture, remodled bathrooms and updated breakfast room. If you are traveling along I81, be sure to plan a stop at Exit 317 to see the improvements. You will be greeted with a smile and a lot of old fashioned courtesy.

We found the staff(Kerry,the manager and all three shifts) to be very accomodating,friendly,courteous and helpful.The breakfast area was clean,the attendant was cheerful and the food was good. The housekeeping staff kept our rooms clean(we stayed 4 nights).I had the occasion to be in the check-in area several times and I observed other guests getting the same friendly treatment. We have been going to Winchester for 15 years( the last 5 at this motel) and of all the 5 motels that we have stayed at.this one is the best !!! We are in our 70's so we appreciate all the little things that help make our stay a good one.We will be returning next year.

We've stayed at the Comfort Inn several times this year due to its proximity to a Summitpoint Raceway where we ride.
This hotel is pet-friendly, offers consistent and reliable service, and the price makes it hard to pass on.
If you find yourself in this area, I would highly recommend the Comfort Inn over the other bargain hotels in the area (we've stayed in a few and they were awful).

We had a dog with us and when some others charged up to $100 for a pet; Comfort Inn only charged $10. The bed was fabulous and the breakfast was better than most. This is an under rated hotel and a nice place.
