I'm surprised by the condition of my room. I stay at hotels quite often and never have issues. When I first arrived I washed my hands and took a clean towel off of the shelf in my bathroom. I got a blondish colored hair stuck to my hand. Gross. Then another fell into the sink. Yellow stains on my towels.... More

Hotel is clean and amenities are good. Close to everything there is to see and do in the area. Breakfast leaves a little to be desired and the hotel Wifi isn't the best. I recommend this hotel, as long as you don't set your expectations too high.

I booked this hotel with my credit card points at the last minute as a small getaway for me and my husband. It was fine for what it was. The room was clean. We did not eat breakfast as we enjoy the local places Williamsburg has to offer for breakfast. We didn't get a chance to use the pool, but... More

We liked the hot breakfast, but found the sausage to have more pepper than we would prefer, and the pancake eggs by their nature are mediocre at best. Would also like to see a waffle maker. We are light sleepers and the sound of the HVAC is often a problem for us at hotels. Our room (#234) was probably typical... More

Room was dank and damp, did not smell nice. Some debris on beds, carpet was dirty. Lighting was poor. Inadequate nightstand space. One of the two room keys did not function. Breakfast was kind of gross. Nothing was fresh, crisp, hot, etc. I would pay more to stay somewhere else that feels clean and fresh and offers a good breakfast.

Close to the highway and shopping center & restaurants. Yorktown close by. Very nice people & pretty rooms. Had a very pleasant stay. Trip advisor wants 200 characters...now that is crazy. You will like staying here.

My fiancée and I stayed here for vacation and to visit Colonial Williamsburg. First of all, it has a great location. You have to turn off on to a secondary road before you get Into the parking lot of the hotel. My only gripe is that they could've had a slightly more noticeable sign on the highway. Thankfully we were... More

Spent 2 nights. Prices were higher because of the holiday weekend; would not pay that price for this hotel for non-holidays. The rooms were a little outdated, and not the cleanest, and kind of dark. There was a dim light when you entered the door, above the fridge, microwave and coffee maker, and it was hard to see if you... More

The hotel was as expected, clean enough, comfortable enough. We went during the high season - so hotel was very full and the price was pretty high for what is essentially an upgraded motel. Breakfast not the most appetizing, but you get what you pay for!
