Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BJB48 Resturant was excellent, check in experience rather slow.
All in all a good place to stay- a bit pricey and no breakfast. Property and rooms were very nice. Hooligans Resturant was very good, one of the best in recent memory for a chain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hogheaven10 Stay with Someone You Know!!
Very nice stay at this Holiday Inn.
We were on a bike ride(Harley) to the Blue Ridge Mountains and decided to stay at this Holiday Inn, Front Royal, VA.
The hotel is clean and very new. The golf course on the grounds is beautiful and has a very nice paved path for golf carts but since we do not golf we woke up the mornings and took a nice walk!!!
Houllihans is the restaurant in the Holiday Inn and staff and food were very good!!
The staff at the Holiday Inn were very friendly and helpful with local directions and giving us suggestions on places to see and eat at.
Our room was very comfortable and clean. Air conditioner worked great!! Cleaning staff in the morning did a nice job straightening up or mess from the night before!
The staff at Holiday Inn let us park our motorcycles near the front door entrance roof area which made us all feel better and secure for our bikes.
Overall I highly recommend this hotel. Our group price was very reasonable and the hotel is run well. Will recommend and looking forward to coming back.

During a road trip through Virginia we booked a one night stay here to start our journey through Shenandoah National Park. After a long drive it was so nice to find this hotel so clean, comfortable, and beautiful. The view was tremendous and the golf course was right outside. The staff was very pleasant as well. The Houlihans downstairs was not only convenient for dinner AND even breakfast, it was delicious. Highly recommend!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GMGLofVA2013 Great Service
I'm glad we made the right turn instead of the left turn coming off of the exit ramp. The location was very simple to find, as well as a very clean, and maintain property, having a golf course to the area adjacent to the property I figured that the rates would be very far out of my reach, boy was I surprised, $3.00 more than the place down the road at the exit ramp, and without a doubt I believe the right choice was made. The staff was very courteous and well manner, as well as very informed about the area and its surroundings. The rooms were very clean, no odors what so ever. We left the next morning before the breakfast started. If I'm back in the Front Royal area I know exactly where that I'm staying at no doubt about it. I've travel extensively the last two and half years with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, a fraternal organization and have stay at all types and kinds of hotels and motels but this is the best experience that I have had by far. My hats off to the staff for my stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kathy259 Another great stay!
This is our third stay at this property and again - we were treated like family. Staff is awesome, very accommodating. Rooms are clean. Pool was immaculate. We were able to enjoy the beautiful view of the golf course on the patio and enjoyed a lovely dinner and breakfast at Houlihans. Kids under 12 eat for free! We'll be back again on 7/20 to celebrate an 81st birthday!

as far as we're concerned. Before making a reservation I checked all of the hotels in the area - and as I mentioned to the Manager on duty, this hotel seemed to be a little better than the second best - Holiday Inn in Winchester... He told us that they were pretty much matched - but I had my "aha" moment when he told us their Holiday Inn rankings! (Not much difference, I agree - and obviously both very good!)
We felt very welcome and even though we were only staying for one night on our roundabout journey through Virginia, we were given a lovely suite overlooking the beautiful golf course.
The one low(er) point was the attached restaurant. Staff were not too interested in serving us when we came in and we could not determine who our wait staff was - since either no one or a totally different server came to the table when we they pleased. One of the staff was extremely loud - and seemed to believe that she was in her family room instead of working in a restaurant. The bellowing should have been left at home.
All in all, I recommend this hotel but I'd suggest that if you can, find another place to eat - unless you'd like to whoop and hollar too.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DJMN Awesome Stay!
We stayed here for three nights during June 2013. The property seems fairly new and is very clean. The lobby is great and we were greeted by the 5 different front desk people in a very friendly manner every time. The guy who checked us in acknowledged our IGH membership and offered a complimentary bottle of water and snacks on a hot day which was appreciated! We purchased several things in the convenience area during our stay and every encounter was friendly and with a smile. I golfed 9 holes on the course next door - nice little casual course. We never used the pool or exercise room but both looked nice and clean. Friendly housekeeping as well. It's connected to a Houlihan's and we love their food so that was a good convenient option. I highly recommend staying at this Holiday Inn! The only thing that wasn't perfect, which isn't really a complaint, is that we bought some wine at a local vineyard and the front desk did not have a corkscrew, nor did they sell one in the convenience store. When I brought the bottle to the bartender in Houlihan's, she grabbed the corkscrew on her way to see me, knowing exactly what I needed. She gets that a lot and we both agreed they could make a killing selling corkscrews in the convenience area next to the front desk. :-)

This hotel is modern and immaculate. A Houlihans is attached, which was great as I was touring by motorcycle and will not drink and ride. A fantastic base or stopping off point for Skyline Drive and the Blue Ridge.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by londononno Good try
Visit started badly as we were not given any special acknowledgement of being members and were shown to a room that appeared to be occupied by someone else.. Staff did rectify this immediately and we were given a very good room with a view but turned out to overlook the noisy AC units. Food at the restaurant was good .Great car parking. East access to the golf but way out of town. I would give the hotel another try if in town.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JeffE Comfortable but noisy AC unit
Hotel is very nice with recent upgrades. The room AC unit fan was permanently set to high so whenever it came on we could hardly hear each other and were constantly turning the TV up and down. It also woke us both up when it came on. Would have been nice to have a slower speed setting on the wall control. Very nice hotel otherwise.

My family stayed @ the Front Royal Blue Ridge Shadows Holiday Inn in May 2013 for a wedding we were attending nearby. The rooms were newly renovated and nicely done. What really stood out at this property was the staff - every person we interacted with was polite & helpful. It really made for a wonderful stay! There's a Houlihan's restaurant attached, which is convenient for meals. And there's a mall 5 minutes down the road, incl. Starbucks. All our needs were met here.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sdv53 Has potential
Although the property is nice, there were some issues. The bathroom sink was stopped up. There was a plastic cup with liquid in it, in the ice bucket. When we arrived the desk clerk was involved in a private conversation with friend or family and I had to wait several minutes to be noticed. The hotel desk person also seemed annoyed when we asked for a blanket for the pullout sofa. We were a little disappointed in our stay.

For the third time I have stayed in this hotel and have been significantly impressed. Across the board, they have been top notch. Affordability, friendliness, cleanliness, ect. The restaurant/ bar is fantastic (an extra treat!). All 3 times I've stayed I have been most impressed with how darn comfortable the beds/ bedding are! I full intend on staying here again in the future, and would recommend it to anyone!

We stayed at the Holiday Inn in Front Royal for our son's wedding. The entire wedding party and both families stayed there as well. They were very accommodating for our needs. The rooms were very comfortable. It was a bit pricey, but there are not many options in Front Royal. We liked the suites because there was room to gather and the hotel lobby was very spacious and also gave us room to gather before and after events.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Don1812 Great Suite Room
My wife and I frequently travel with my 71 year old mother-in-law. We try to book a suite whenever possible so that we have room to relax outside of the sleeping area. The suite sitting area also allows my wife and I to stay up should my mother-in-law decide to call it an early night. The hotel has the best suite of any Holiday Inn we have experienced. It was roomy and comfortable. The beds were also comfortable and the staff when needed was great. The restaurant at the hotel also served up tasty food at reasonable prices. We really enjoyed our stay.

My wife and I spend the weekend at the Holiday Inn to relax and celebrate our 29th anniversary. The hotel was great, our room was perfect with a excellent view of the golf course and the staff was fantastic, very friendly. It was raining when we arrived so we had dinner in the Houlihans restaurant attached to the hotel and had a wonderful meal. The next day we went for a drive to see the bueatiful mountain area and spend some time at the 11th Annual Red Bud Tree Festival in Browntown which was about 20 minutes south of the hotel, south of Front Royal.
All in all a great weekend at a great hotel.

My sisters and I take a "Sister's Vacation" every year and decided to tour the Caverns in Virginia. We were more than pleased with the hotel! Our room was super clean and very nice. The whole hotel looked well kept and everything was great! The staff was very courteous and helpful...very welcoming and friendly! We all recommend dining at the hotel's lounge, the food was great and the staff was excellent!! I wish I knew what fragrance they filtered throughout the building, it was very pleasant and refreshing!! Loved the whole experience!!!

It's where I stay when in Front Royal, VA visiting the campus of Christendom College.
Everything is just perfect for my needs with the exception of the internet speed. On two separate stays, I experienced extremely slow WiFi speed (from 1 to 2 Mbps!). I brought this to the management's attention the first time, and they had the wifi vendor look into it, but there was no improvement.
The staff are wonderfully friendly and helpful. The hotel is quiet. Everything was clean. I had zero other problems besides the slow internet.
