No frills, but clean - someone else said - good description. We stayed one friday night while meeting friends who were staying at the KOA a just a minute away. Very convenient to river riders, the outfitter we used to go tubing on the shenandoah river the next morning.
However there are two things a hotel MUST DO well, and you will get a poor rating from us if you don't do them well. Offer a good nights sleep, and have a clean and functional bathroom experience. These are the only two things that a guest will absolutely require, and use. On these two, this property failed for us.
We were given a room on the "first" floor - which is below the lobby level. The hallway is long, with hotel rooms on one side, and conference rooms on the other. I have never seen hotel and conference rooms intermixed this way (30 years of business travel). We decided not to raise the issue, because it was Friday night, and we didn't expect there to be an early conference or heavy traffic saturday morning. Wrong! A conference started at the room directly across the hall from us at 5:30AM ON SATURDAY MORNING. Nice big booming voice on the speaker. We gave up trying to sleep in. A more minor issue, the bathroom fixtures were very dated, and the shower heads were old and clogged from hard water, making for very low water pressure.
When we checked out, we politely suggested they might want to not book rooms across from conferences, especially when the conference begins early on a weekend. We didn't ask for a discount or our money back - just a suggestion. They acted as if they didn't care, and just gave us a mumbled apology. We still don't know why they booked us in that room the hotel wasn't anywhere near full (we checked in about 10pm, the parking lot only had a few cars).
If your staying here, remember to ask for a room that is not mixed with conference rooms!
