Great location and restful stop on drive to FLA from Canada. Easy to find right off highway. Kid friendly with great pool. Little ones get a chance to burn energy after day in car. This has been our stop evertime we head south.

Beds worst I ever slept on, still suffering from back aches after 4 days home. Breakfast cold, eggs tasteless, turkey sausage not fit to eat. On a plus side staff at front desk were very helpful. I would not recommend this place to any traveler. Down hill from last years stay.

Stayed here with my best friend after another hotel only had smoking rooms left (gross). I'm a pretty big fan of Holiday Inn Express, but this one had a few oddities. Pros: I loved the high ceilings and everything was nice and clean with attentive room cleanings and nice staff. The hot breakfast was also nice. Cons: the bathrooms lights...

Very nice hotel. Comfortable beds. Clean rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. Nice clean pool area. Breakfast was good. This was just one stop on our way and I wish our second hotel had been as nice. I would stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel for a weekend ski trip and we got pretty much what was advertised. This isn't a Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton, nor did we expect that. Rachel, the front desk clerk was so very helpful and accommodating. The hot breakfast really helped us get maximum time on the mountains and saved us money, so that...

Clean, comfortable and affordable. Right of I-81 and convient to the city and the University. Numerous restaurants in all price ranges. If you like to "Antique" this is a great place to start ... Many are located on Route 11 ... Get the antique shopping guide.

Dear Johnthetraveler, We greatly appreciate your review of our hotel and the surrounding area! We couldn't agree more about this area being a wonderful place to "Antique".

We were traveling to eastern Pennsylvania for the holidays and stopped in Harrisonburg along the way. Our experience with this location was excellent! We arrived in the early morning hours and were checked in promptly by a very courteous young lady, and after checking in we enjoyed fresh coffee and a wonderful nights rest! Highly recommend this hotel!
