Great value for weekend stay

A great value for visit to Staunton with my wife to see Shakespeare play, tour the town, and enjoy surrounding area. Clean, comfortable no frills room like we remembered from staying at Howard Johnson's back in the 70's. Easy walk to town and to Gypsy Hill Park. Convenient continental breakfast, and friendly management and staff. Manager gave us great tour of wonderful vegetable garden... an unexpected bonus to our stay.

visiting relatives

Our stay was very nice. Rooms were exceptional clean and had plenty of space. We visited family relatives. I am originally from Staunton so getting around was easy and the hotel provided a home like atmosphere. Well done to all the staff. Have used this hotel several times and intend to still use in the future when I visit Staunton.

Good room for a low price

It's a basic inn. It doesn't claim to be anything fancy, and it isn't. Still, the room is clean and comfortable enough. If you're looking for a place to spend the night while en route to somewhere else, this isn't a bad choice.

Overall the hotel provided what I expected considering the cost. Although quite outdated, the room was adequate and clean. The included breakfast was very simple -- breads and cereal. Would consider staying again.

Clean, simple and inexpensive

Booked it late on Parents weekend at JMU. Not much of a choice left by then. This hotel would not have been on top of our list but we had a nice experience there. The room was clean, the bed comfortable. The bathroom could do with a redo but again for the price, we were quite satisfied. Breakfast is complimentary even though it was mostly breads and cereals. Great value overall and its location close to downtown Staunton makes it convenient to walk to Main St while being still less than 10 min from 81.

GREAT DEAL!

This hotel is within walking distance of restaurants and the American Shakespeare Theater. For the money, you cannot beat it! It is a fraction of the price of others, and, although not fancy, it has everything we needed, and MORE! I would stay again and would recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy Staunton on a budget without sacrificing!

Entertainment tip: Long walk from hotel

If you want to do the Shakespeare Theater on a budget, buy the cheapest seats and move after intermission. This is not a big secret, but is a great deal! Be sure to arrive early (30 min before showtime) for great entertainment!
