"Great for a weekend get-away"
Clean, nice pool, friendly staff, good location. "guest room" where continental breakfast is served is very dingy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay!"
The room had been recently updated, new carpeting and bathroom tile. It was very spacious with lots of dresser and counter area. We did not use the outside pool but, it was clean. The outside looks dated but a gem on the inside. We would stay at this hotel in the future.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cleanest motel I have ever been at"
I was utterly surprise to step into a very clean hotel. Love the toilet message that said "Sanitze for your protection". You don't even see this at the Hilton!! Staff was friendly. A bit hard to locate, but one can not pass this hotel by because it is the CLEANEST ROOM EVER!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cheap hotel for a family"
The room is one of the smallest I have ever had so far. There is a door between me and my neighbor. I could not watch TV in my room and I could not talk to my spouse with normal voice in the room either, because I was afraid of affecting others' rest. The free breakfast starts at 7:00 am, it is too late for most travelers. The neighborhood is not safe […] enough, I saw some wired people walking on the streets around the hotel and they all looked like drug addicted. On the internet people say that this hotel is pretty clean, I don't agree with them completely. I was sorry but that was what I felt. The price of the hotel is great, and the location of it is nice too. It is a good choice for people who visit Washington D.C. By staying in this hotel you will save lots of money and it is just one hour driving to Washington DC. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Oldie but goodie!"
The motel obviously has some age on it, but we found it to be very clean and inviting. The pool was cool & refreshing, and I loved the Koi pond!! The room was a bit on the small side and could've used an updated TV, but again, the room was EXTREMELY clean and quite comfortable. If I could recommend any improvement, it would be to make the entire hotel […] smoke free (although our room was smoke free, the room next door wasn't and the smoke was very strong in the hallway).

"close to family"
Very impressed for not being a franchise hotel, which means they do it because they want to, not because they have to. Very rare to find.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cool Harbor Motel - one night staty"
The room was clean, the staff was friendly, the price was right.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not to bad. Everything was clean. A lot of construction workers and such stay there during the week. Coffee pot in every room but if you want an alarm clock you'll have to ask the front desk. I don't know why. But most importantly, it was clean and worth the nightly rate.Genuine Expedia guest review
Was very impressed with our overnight night stay. Staff was very friendly when checking in very late at night the room and hotel were very cozy. And the best part was the cost was Reasonable!! The only thing i could see neg. about the hotel was the sheets didnt fit the bed , kept slipping off the edges, but hey dealt with that just fine! :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Cool Harbor Motel was perfectly situated in Front Royal. Good food around the corner, clean room, GREAT outdoor pool, friendly staff, ample parking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We came to Front Royal to just get away and have some "Us" time. The hotel was great. It is an older hotel but it was very clean and the staff was very friendly. We enjoyed our weekend very much!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the entry into the National Park"
The staff was very friendly, hotel was clean. If I were to go back to this town again I would stay there again,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fine for the money"
The hotel was clean and it was in an okay location to start out on Skyline Drive. Nothing fancy, so for one night it did the job.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Goiod spot to work from day hiking the App. Trail. Great for keeping supplies to make sandwiches for lunchGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was very helpful and considerate; rooms were large and clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"convenient to travel destination"
very nice like the small homey atmosphereGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very friendly staff and comfortable, quiet stay. Will stay here again :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean hotel, close to skyline drive"
We only stayed one night as the hotel is conveniently located near the start of Skyline drive. It's a good hotel for the money, with clean rooms, friendly staff, and easy to find. It is a little bit outside the center of Front Royal, which seems to be a very nice town!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"clean but sketchy"
Wow. Ever see the movie "Deliverance"? A little too much in common with this. Lowlifes at the pool, knocking on doors at all hours of the night (hookers? Drugs?) noisy. Place was nice inside, kept up well. Lukewarm shower, staff nice. TV remote wouldn't work, they programmed it worked for 5 minutes, read a book instead. Spend a few more $$$, it keeps […] the riff raff away. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel would be great for a group with a large guest/breakfast lounge, an undercover patio for smokers and an interior lounge with computer access. The hosts were very obliging and the room was very clean and spacious with a separate robe and kitchen.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
STAY WAS OK Good location: gateway to the skyline driveGenuine Expedia guest review
"A great deal for the money"
This is an older hotel but the owners have made every effort to add all the amenities needed for a pleasant stay. The room was lovely and clean. AC was superb. Breakfast was included! All in all a great deal.....Genuine Expedia guest review
"Enjoyed our overnight stay."
Very pleasant experience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location convenient to shops, food & attractions"
The people were very friendly and helpful. Tha room was clean, comfortable & the rates were excellant. I would recommend the Cool Harbor to my friends & family in the future. I hope to stay there again when the pool is open.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"cool harber motel"
handy to the main drag thru town only minutes in either direction for amenities . thanks to reading other comments arrived prepared with my own sheets as theirs do not fit well and come off to easily as this visit was in off season didn't have much noise to contend with was able to relax which is what we were there for. good for the budget mindedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very quaint. Only problem we had was the sheet did not stay on bed while sleeping because of the plastic mattress cover (which is a bonus when you think of germs). Room was cozy with double windows and a nice view. Location was reminiscent of the past when the town was beginning due to the caverns in the area. Also easy access and centrally located […] as far as convenience for activities. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Locally Owned Accomodations"
My husband had to take a field trip for his job & there didn't seem to be that many hotels in the area, especially that fit into his expense budget. At Cool Harbor Motel, we got a fair rate booking online. Thank goodness for internet reviews because we chose this over a franchise since it was said to be clean & had a nice staff, which was true. In fact, […] the ladies in the office were so caring, they fussed at my husband for worrying me because he forgot to call when he got into town :) The free breakfast is just Continental style, but my husband said there was a good food selection, so he enjoyed the meal & slept well the night before. He said it's not fancy but clean & comfortable, so he'd definitely stay there again & recommend to others. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
basically you get what you pay for. The room was nice with refrig, TV, microwave, coffee maker and coffee and hair dryer. My major complaints were: -hairs on the sheets and pillow cases of the bed, -a shower head that I could not turn to face my head, -the tub wouldn't drain the first day -they have a phone in the room that says it is good for free […] local calls. I spent 5 minutes trying to get it to work before calling the front office and they tell me their phones have been disconnected and no longer are able to make local calls. I'd consider staying there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
the bed was half a step above a board of plywood. very uncomfortable. we left in the middle of the night to drive home because we weren't able to get to sleep. As a result we missed out on their unadvertised continental breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"would like to return in warmer weather"

"Cool Harbor Motel"
I found that Cool Harbor Motel was very clean and well kept. I have been in house keeping in hotel/motel business and this motel is kept wery clean and tidy I was impressed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good Location but "Cheap" Room"
I picked this hotel based on its location near the national park and reviews at hotels.com. I was very disappointed. When I say the room was "cheap", I'm commenting on the quality, not the price. Sheets did not fit the bed. Mattress and pillows were funky. Because no outlet near sink, had to clean teeth in tub, which smelled. Sink was clogged. No alarm […] clock. No iron. Room smelled chemically, so had to keep window open. I would not stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, clean nothing fancy"
and don't count on the continental breakfast, it was all gone except 1 slice of bread and some old mini donuts, fortunately the front desk had given us a great local diner we had dinner at the night before, so we went there for breakfast. I would stay again, it was cozy. The porches are nice, maybe some rockers or chair at each room to watch the sun […] set. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice but a few details overlooked"
Toilet was very old style only about 1 ft off the floor. Toilet seat actually fell off due to being old and bad design. Must have been reported many times. half inch gap around some parts of door allowing any noise to come in. Extremely sparse Cont. breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"the motel Cool Harbor in Front Royal VA"
Everything at the motel was very nice and clean, the staff was helpful. The only thing I can complain about is the continental breakfast could have been much better, and the tv had very limited number of channels, most of which were sports channels. Overall all, we were satisfied with everything elseGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice building outside"
I did NOT get the room I reserved. I reserved a queen size bed in a deluxe room. When I arrived they wanted to give me a room with 2 single beds. If I wanted 2 single beds, I would have reserved that type of room. I did get a room with a queen size bed. It was so small that the bathroom washbasin was outside next to the micro wave. If someone was at […] the washbasin the rest of the bath was NOT acessable. This room would have made a great storage closet. And yes, it was very loud, you could hear everything.

"Cool Harbor Motel - close to Skyline Drive"
This is an older motel, but well-maintained and very decent for the price. It is only a couple of miles from the entrance to Skyline Drive in the beautiful Shenandoah National Park.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Okay for the price"
Though certainly not fancy, the rooms were comfortable and the staff friendly and helpful. No Kleenex is provided and you have to request an alarm clock from the front desk if your room does not have one. Doors use old style keys not reader cards and they only have a regular lock and dead bolt. No partial opening security lock/stop. On our first night, […] we checked in and went out to dinner. We had left the light on in the room and the window open. When we returned the light was off and the window closed. We found out that the front desk attendant had made the rounds and saw the window open and the light on and closed the window and turned off the light. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We were on our way from Washington to the Blue Ridge Mountains. It´s a nice and quiet place, the room was o.k. for one night. The breakfast room was a bit old fashioned and neglectet, but the breakfast was good. The people were friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Clean, but noisy. Neighbors were talking all night long and we could hear everything. Mattress was fine, but had a plastic cover on it. Haven't slept on one since summer camp. Sweaty and unpleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cool Harbor Motel in Front Royal, VA"
This was a very nice place to stay. Our room was clean and the staff were very nice. An older place, but updated. Close to places to eat. Would stay the again,Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cool Harbor Motel"
My husband and I chose Cool Harbor Hotel due to its proximity to Luray Caverns and the fact that it has a pool (specifically!). We also like to support independently owned hotels. Disappointments: -Unaware to us, the pool is padlocked until noon. We were never told this and had our suits and sunblock on. We would have never stayed here if we would […] have known this. Also you will have to request towels at the front desk if you decide to go in the pool. The hotel only provides one set of towels per person voluntarily. -It seems the motel doesn't want one to use their facilities (due to upkeep?). There IS a basketball hoop, volleyball net and grill. That is fantastic! However, we were never told this and it isn't posted anywhere... so we didn't find out until shortly before we were leaving. We had already had the fixings for a grill! Another negative is there are rules that are plastered everywhere. "If anyone is SUSPECTED of underage drinking, we will call the police." And here are some paraphrased rules: "No noise after 10." "No food or drink in the pool." The rules make sense, but with the rules posted everywhere it makes it feel more like a prison! Overall, the hotel is very clean and very well maintained, but we didn't feel welcome. We will stay at another motel when we are in the area again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Cool Harbor Motel in Front Royal Va. Excellent"
I stayed there for 2 nights recently and had a wonderful experience. Rooms were very nice and very clean. Staff was great and very helpful with whatever we needed. The pool was very nice. I was very happy and would highly recommend Cool Harbor to anyone staying in the area. I will definetly stay here on my next visit to Front Royal, Va.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok for its price range"
We booked 2 rooms. The room were clean. One room had a slightly less maintained bath. we just needed a room to spend the night in between our travel, so no issues in that regard. Nothing fancy, but value for money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
There was actual chewed gum stuck to the top of our head board and we needed to clean the microwave before using it. The beds are extremely hard and having hip and back problems were extremely uncomfortable. I awoke in pain extreme pain multiple times through out the night. Don't expect much from the continental breakfast as it is less than desirable. […] There was some unlabled cereal in a plastic container, some mini bagels, chocolate covered mini hostess style donuts, coffee, milk and juice. Pool didn't open until noon which was a bummer for the kids when it was 100 out. However, the staff was friendly and helpful. The overall cleanliness was good and the grounds well maintained. Would recommend for a quick one night stay not for long visit. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great little hidden hotel"
I'm always weary about motels but I was pleasantly surprised! The rooms were updated and cute. The staff were very nice. We just had to blast the AC when we got in the room because they didn't have it running for us. MUCH better than a super 8 or other motel chains!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
