Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CathyAlexa Very comfortable
Although brief, we checked in late and checked out very early, we enjoyed our stay. The room was nice, too bad we didn't have the opportunity to use the whirlpool bath! Breakfast was delicious and we were on the go so we grabbed a few items on the way out.
If there was one thing that was not so good, but it only affected us while walking to our room, the hallways smelled badly of cigarette smoke. However, our room did not.
We had a very pleasant stay, thanks.

Excellent staff. Very clean hotel. My only issue is that it was very busy and I had to take a smoking room. My clothes still stunk 3 days later. I wish hotels would insist smokers do so outside. Smokers stink and destroy the ambience of a room. Other than that it is a great hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Giovanni39 Reservation Foul Up
We booked a King Suite with whirlpool tub well in advance. When we checked in I even said, "This is a King suite, right" and was given some kind of a reply that didn't really say yes or no, but I didn't think too much about it.
When we got to the room it seemed like it was a standard King room with a fridge, not what I have been accustomed to after many years of staying at Holiday Inns. I kept thinking that this really wasn't what we booked so I got out the confirmation and after supper went to the front desk and handed it the clerk and questioned our room.
He finally told me that they over booked the suites and had to give us a different room. At that point they reduced the charge of the room.
The breakfast area was very small to the right of entrance next to the registration desk. Not well planned.
This is NOT what i am accustomed to at H. I.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NYMarkG As Usual, A Great Night!
I was traveling with friends, and we arrived at the hotel very late. After 1 AM. The overnight clerk at the front desk was BEYOND friendly, professional, and accommodating. The hotel was very clean, and the room and amenities were up to date. Breakfast was plentiful, and had many different choices. If I am ever traveling through the area, this will be my hotel of choice. Thanks again for a great experience!

Experience was mostly what I've come to expect from Holiday Inn Express. I'm a big fan of the free breakfast as it saves a meal eating out. The beds weren't as comfortable as most and the pool was out of order, but other than that I was not disappointed.

We have stayed at this motel several times. This last time I had my grandchildren with me and they loved the breakfast food. My grandson had pancakes and sausage and my granddaughter loved the cinnamon rolls. We have never had a problem while staying here. Everyone has always been friendly and helpful. We will definitely be staying here again in the future.

I had booked a room with King size bed, sofabed and whirlpool in the bathroom. The room was clean, bathroom was clean and whirlpool worked fine. Overall it was a very comfortable and relaxing stay. The free breakfast was also very nice with lots of choices. Highly recommend staying at this place.

My wife and daughter stayed here both ways on a trip from Atlanta to New Hampshire. The hotel was very convenient right off the Interstate. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly and welcoming. They especially want to thank two of the housekeeping ladies -- Brooke and Victoria -- who went above and beyond. My wife was distressed when she was unable to start her car in the morning and they offered their assistance and even gave her a jump. You can't get better service than that! Thanks!

Excellent place to stay with great food within walking distance (some of the best Italian food we have ever had). Upon check-in the manager (I believe he was the owner also) made us feel very welcome and let us put our motorcycles right out front so the desk clerk could keep an eye on them all night.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DJMN Bad experience in Executive Suite
I stayed in the so-called executive suite which includes a refrigerator, microwave, and jacuzzi tub. The refrigerator didn't work and when I called the front desk the guy seemed to know what the problem was without even coming to look at it, which makes me believe he knew it was broken before our stay. Our food almost spoiled before I realized it. Also, the jacuzzi tub plug leaked and the water was draining the whole time my wife tried to use it. The bathroom sink plug also did not seal. During the breakfast the next morning the waffle maker was out of order. Some of the food ran out and it took almost 10 minutes for the service person to refill the eggs. The guy working at night was pretty friendly. The woman working in the morning never smiled, was not friendly, and seemed indifferent when I told her I made a list of things that were wrong in the room. I just left the piece of paper on the front counter with the list of items. There was no offer to discount our room rate even though the amenities I paid for were not adequate and they knew the fridge was broken before I stayed there. I will not stay at this place ever again and will encourage others to stay away! By the way, we stayed at the Holiday Inn in Front Royal the following three nights and the experience was totally different. I encourage others to stay there instead if you insist on staying at a Holiday Inn.

I travel quite often and have stayed in many hotels. By far, this is the best Holiday Inn Express that I have stayed in over my business travels.
First of all, the staff, either Kandice, Chris, Alexis or James when you check in treat you like a special person and make you very welcome. They are friendly and go above and beyond to meet all of your requests no matter how large or small.
The room I stayed in was kept immaculately clean and very quiet. The Housekeeper, Shannon did an incredible job of keeping it clean during my stay.
I traveled with quite a few other business colleagues and we were able to gather in the lobby, sit back, enjoy a few drinks (we brought in from the store) and chat just like we were at home. We never felt like we were pestering the front desk or being inconvenient.
The day of checkout, I was met by the manager, Robert who greeted me by name. He specifically asked me about my stay and I told him it was fantastic as always.
Whenever I am in Winchester/Strasburg area, I make it a point to stay at this hotel. They do a fabulous job and I have recommended to other professionals at my home office in Michigan that they stay there as well.

We were very happy with the hotel overall and especially the front desk welcome. However, despite having booked well in advance, and having a preference for upstairs room away from elevator, we were given Room 100 which is right next to the housekeeping area and access to all the ground floor rooms. As a result my partner had a very bad night's sleep with noises as well as a badly fitting door that let a lot of light into the room. The front desk explained the hotel was fully booked that night but we had booked about 4 weeks in advance.

From check-in to even after check-out we had a great experience.... We were upgraded when we arrived and decided to stay another night and they were able to keep us in the same room.... After we checked out and were on our way to Mansfield, PA we got a call from them to let us know that we left our Kindle behind.... They were able to send it via mail and we received it today.... THANK YOU HIE WINCHESTER SOUTH, STEPHENS CITY.... You are the best!!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JoetheRockGuy Not Extraordinary, but Very Good
We stayed here because we were vending the next day at a Wine festival in Front Royal, VA. Usually we stay at the Holiday Inn Blue Ridge Shadows in Front Royal, but they were booked full because of multiple weddings. This was close and relatively inexpensive.
The room was clean and quiet. The bed was comfy. Nothing extraordinary. We got in late, so we really didn't have much 'room time' before going to sleep.
The next morning, the shower was FANTASTIC. (I wish we had one like it at our house.) The coffee at the breakfast buffet was hot and better than some fancy coffee places. There was a good assortment of everything (but it was 6:30 am when we rolled out) The lady who takes care of the breakfast buffet area is very VERY nice, and a true asset to this hotel. The front desk staff is very courteous and pleasant, and we were greeted with treats when we arrived.
I'd recommend this to anyone who wants a clean room, comfortable bed, and some good hot coffee in the morning.

We have stayed at this location before, and it is a convenient point to stop during our travels. Excellent location close to interstate, yet quiet. Ample parking, close to excellent local restaurants. Staff responded to our questions quickly, and provided excellent service. Whirlpool room was amazing, large and spacious, and worth a little extra that we paid. We will be back!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MakM Reservation made Days in Advance
Had reservation made days in advance, but when we went to check in at a little after 5 pm, the room had not been prepared and had some wait time before able to check in.
Understand cleaning staff was under staffed on that particular day.
Employees on staff were very kind and tried to make us as comfortable as possible while we waited. We had been on the road for 8 plus hours and were quite tired.
