We ended up leaving and the owner was arguing with me to give me a refund, the rooms are in horrible condition and there were roaches all over the room and bugs in the bed. The place was infested and the owner doesn't seem to even care. Very poor condition and disgusting.

This is your basic, 60's style motel. It is convenient to I-95, but it needs a lot of TLC to make it a place you would want to stay for long. It was a good, one night, sleep and go kind of place. The staff was friendly and wanted the stay to be good. However, being an old property, and... More

Staff was friendly and hotel was very quiet. Also, new restaurant had very good food. Hotel stay was very reasonable.

During a return trip home from Florida with a friend, I found myself tiring and in need of a respite. Considering options, The Skippers Virginia Econo Lodge seemed to be a safe and reasonable bet as I had stayed there previously a number of years ago during jaunts to and fro from Florida. My expectations are modest as I realize... More

This is is the worst motel ever. We stayed there as we travel with our dog. They have alot of nerve charging $10.00 extra for a pet. My dog was by far cleaner than anything in the room. We slept with our clothes on. I had to clean the toilet before we could use it. WIFI was unusable.

Spent a night here while coming home on I-95. With a coupon available from any rest stop or travel plaza -- including the one on this exit -- I paid $43 grand total for two persons. Motel was right off the interstate, on the side opposite to the travel plaza that has a fast food restaurant. The latter was the... More

This used to be a really nice place to stay until they changed owners and franchises. Used to be an American Motel (franchise not nationality). it is one of the few places you can stay with your pet, but like others have stated, phone didn't work - had to go to front desk to get a replacement. Wasn't the cleanest... More

As per the title, the room was average, and the bed was OK, but what caught my attention in the lobby was some sort of odor. The odd smell seemed to be coming from an area behind the front desk... maybe the room behind that, but it permeated the lobby. Maybe not a problem at night, but when breakfast is... More

We booked two rooms and in both rooms we did not have a phone that functioned, or smoke alarms! We checked in late at night and we wanted new rooms, but we had to talk to an associate through a bulletproof glass window! Should have been a red flag! She did not speak english very well, but moved us to... More
