OK for the money
Posted Oct 6, 2015
Staff were fine; typical of most any stay at a less-expensive place. The building that housed the rooms had a lobby that was very antiquated and stunk like high heaven from cigarette smoke, possibly from workers smoking near the door or in the lobby, plus dirty carpets that smelled like body odor; almost overwhelming. My room was comfortable and the bed just hard enough for me to get some sleep, but I prefer a slightly harder bed. My non-smoking room had some odor as if someone had smoked in it in years past- which I detest, or smoke getting into the room from smokers elsewhere. I wish hotels and motels would ban smoking, period. If you smoke, have the courtesy to take your nasty, life-threatening habit elsewhere (outside). A great hamburger place on the lot with good staff and great food, including milkshakes; other fast food places just up the road. Warrenton is in a lovely area of northern Virginia with lots of Civil War history around it, including the Battlefield of Brandy Station (cavalry fight), Cedar Mountain (infantry fight), and the smaller cavalry battles of Aldie, Middleburg, Paris, etc.- first movements of the Gettysburg campaign. The little Mosby museum in Middleburg is very nice and all the little towns throughout that area are gorgeous little time capsules. Even prettier than the lovely Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
