This hotel is located in downtown Front Royal, VA which provides for a great spot if being in the center of town matters. We ended up staying here because the price was $90 a night so we figured it would be a decent hotel for that price.
The hotel is very dated inside and old smelling. The lobby looks decent clean-wise and the hotel itself was not looking too bad on the outside.
The rooms are decent size, as we had one with 2 double beds. The bathroom is tiny and nothing fancy. The room itself was not filthy, but it needed a little going-over in the bathroom and was NOT a room to take your shoes off in. There was a huge beetle in the washrorom that scurried away from me when I went close to him.
The mattresses were completely covered in thick plastic cases which is a sign that they either had bedbugs or are accustomed to having them. I dont know. I took the chance, as I did not see any evidence of dead bugs, skins, blood spots etc and hoped to heck that this was for preventative reasons. Disgusting though. We did not end up with bed bugs at all..whew.
The breakfast was not much but great for a cup of juice, coffee or some cereal.
What turned me off the most was that for a 12 hour use (on the road traveling) this was so expensive and so completely uninviting. I would never stay there again unless my car blew up and I could not sleep in it.
It would be best not to stay there unless you are really desperate for a room or want to take a chance on catching something.
I would not recommend children to stay in this hotel but just weary travelers in dire need.
