The room we stayed in was not clean. The first room they gave us was occupied. Our next door neighbor was smoking pot and let's just say we weren't happy. The csrpet in our room was so dirty we kept our shoes on. I used clorox wipes before I touched anything. Think twice before you stay here!

The staff was friendly when checking in. After that it all went downhill... The bedding was clean, but the carpets were not, we didn't have a phone in our room, the bathroom was questionable and there were dead bugs in the corner behind the chair! Luckily it was a quick stay, just to get us through the night and we... More

We read the reviews. Our room was very nice and clean. Sign in was simple and fast. Very personable clerk. Can't beat the price . Our room was very comfortable and had a good mattress. Will definately stay there again. There was a set of train tracks a bit away but it really was no big deal. You could travel... More

As We were checking in, someone was cancelling their reservation because they refused to stay here. We should have taken the warning. The rooms are very outdated and only mostly clean. But, it seems as though people live in this hotel, and these residents are not polite. The residents seem to live at the pool when not in their rooms,... More

This is the 2nd hotel that I have stayed in Virginia. They must be growing roaches, just for the hotel. Checked in mid-day, we had a great view of the small pool. But the first thing we see when we walk in the room are roaches crawling on the wall. This is an old building that need upgrading and lots... More

Wasn't the best, but you know that going in if its just a cheap place to rest your head when you're on the road. Rooms are definitely very old and used to allow smoking. Also didn't feel very secure with the big glass window and what appeared to be a plywood panel serving as the front wall.

Some of the rooms have very nice couches in them - ask for one. The rooms facing the pool and on the top floor are nice. Once, we enjoyed the two-room suite which was only about $20 more a night! The pool is very nice, too. Call the office if you have a problem with the room, they'll have maintenance... More
