As always when I stay here, the room is clean, the bed is comfortable and the property is well maintained. Did not use the pool but the free continental breakfast was a plus - coffee, juice,milk,water,donuts, yogurt, pastries, cereal, granola bars. The view of Purgatory Mountain is beautiful. No frills but a great place to stay. Friendly staff. Unfortunately the...

I was completely impressed by the quality of this inn. I have driven by it dozens of times going up and down 81 and always thought about staying there. We stayed in room 7, which is pet friendly. The room was large and spacious with high ceilings. It was was in impeccable shape, you could tell this place is maintained...

This hotel has been owned by the same family for a few generations. The views from the room were beautiful! The salt water pool was perfect and well maintained. Yes, the bathroom is small. But the young man at the front desk was friendly and attentive. And David was very helpful setting up our kayaking trip! The beams in the...

Very clean and recently remodeled. Quite and friendly. It sits off the interstate far enough you dont here the noise from it. We would stay there again. The rooms are very large. It looks like a 60s hotel outside and all modern on the inside. Great comfy beds.

I had seen this motel on the hill as I traveled up and down the Shenandoah Valley for years but never stopped. I talked my wife into taking a chance on what looked like a throwback to the roadside motels of the 50s and 60s. She consented to try it for one night. We ended up staying for four days....

My family and I stayed at this inn overnight and slept comfortably. It is a very clean hotel that has gone through some remodeling. The lady at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Also, the view is just breathtaking! However, the only place to eat is at Burger King. You'll have to drive about 20 miles either way...

Stay here a about twice a year for 1 night on my drive from the gulf coast to new england. Very friendly and the people who work there remember me every time. Super close to the interstate. Very clean rooms with a microwave and a mini fridge. Great view.

I'm sorry to hear about your experience here at the Inn and would be more than willing to refund your stay if you like. I would also like to know which member of our staff did not assist you? If you could e-mail me that information privately it would be much appreciated. We have been working hard to continually increase...
