If you want a dry place to sleep, stay here. If you want hot water without waiting for 5 minutes, and WiFi that works, this isn't the place to stay. Smallest room we've ever seen in a motel, door appeared to have been assaulted and a coat rack that interfered with getting into the hard bed. Enough already.

Went to Harrisonburg for a long day event so decided to stay over. We checked the bed in our room the usual way by lifting the mattress on its edge and pushed it to the floor. We found some dead and live critters (larval stage) on the dust cover over the box spring. They gave us another room, same problem....

My husband and I stopped here at 2am to catch a couple hours of sleep on the way to PA. We weren't looking for anything fancy, just a clean bed. We checked into our room and had a laugh a the very poorly executed "renovations". Wall paper was peeling off. Knock down texture in the bathroom was also peeling. The...

Ok - the bathroom was absolutely disgusting. BUT ... the beds were great, the wifi for free and the hairdryer & breakfast perfect! We were greeted super friendly and the motel is safe and central and allowed for easy access to the highway and restaurants. The price is fine and what is offers is on the better side of what's...

Management was nice enough, but it ended that night. In our room, a huge spider was on the wall between beds when we went to bed. Another huge one in the bathroom the next morning, plus ants in the bathroom also. When I sat on the edge of the bed to tie my shoes the next morning, there was a...

It's may be not something to WOW about. But pretty clean, Hotel staffs are very friendly and helpful. Not far away from highway and useful shops & restaurants are within walking distance. Massanutten Water park only 15 to 20 minutes drive. Got a very good deal. It's more that what we should got for that price!

The room was disgusting. The toilet didn't work. There were stains all over the floor, the walls, the ceiling was stained and there was a huge crack in it. We asked for a roll away bed because there was no way I would let my grandchild sleep on the floor and he said that would be $50. Most hotels charge...
