stonewall jackson hotel-totally overrated.
Posted Oct 17, 2016
For a handsome 5 star price one would expect a really fine place:
The receptionist looked at me and treated me like a prisoner when I realized my ID was not on my person when checking in. Yes, it meant I had to go outside and locate my drivers license but she was actually rude. This weekend we were riding bicycles for the Shenandoah Fall Festival (a wonderful 800 plus cyclists from all about near and fall) and I joked and explained that my ID was in my biking shirt--she looked at me, as I said, in an incredibly disrespectful way. Nor was she was not aware of this huge event in happening in Staunton.....I thought receptionists are supposed to be aware of the local community and its happenings!
The pool and Jacuzzi are in the basement and the place looks like a poor city school gym.
The room was tiny and clean but the bathroom a bit outdated.
But the worst is: the room was facing a wall 5-10 feet away and there was a big noisy machine below and all night long the unit (perhaps an air conditioning unit?) was going on and off and it made a harsh sound and the bed vibrated with its sound-a very subtle vibration. And the pillows were as hard as rocks. I almost went to our car in the middle of the night to get a feather pillow! No sleep this night!
Our friends were all staying in tents and I wish we had not wasted money staying in this hotel. It was my birthday; and so it was supposed to be a special. Never again.
One great attribute: centrally located.
