This is possibly one of the worst Best Western hotels you will visit. It looks tired from the outside but the inside is much worse. Our room had not been thoroughly cleaned in months- the dust was thick on all ledges, the wooden headboards were dirty and the coffee maker was covered in sticky/dirty finger marks. I cleaned the room... More

Hotel is in an ideal location near Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown. Staff were friendly and helpful. Hallway areas look a little run down but our room was very clean and that's what we cared about most. Complimentary breakfast was good with plenty of variety. The breakfast area was a bit small and cramped with not enough room for every... More

We only stayed for two nights, so we were not at the hotel very much. The rooms were very clean,especially the bathroom. I would recommended leaving more towels, I guess we could have called down for more. They put these large very nice vanities in the bathrooms, but it is very hard for nearsighted people to put their make up... More

We had a very nice stay at the hotel. The check-in was easy and efficient. Service was good. We asked for extra towels and they were delivered promptly. We enjoyed the complimentary breakfasts. The food was very good and there was sufficient variety. The hotel was clean but could use a little updating (new carpeting). We used the pool and... More

I stayed there for one night to do some shopping. The hotel is real nice. It is only a little over 5 minutes from the Premium Outlets in Williamsburg. the room was nice with everything that I needed. Like a coffee pot, microwave and a mini refrig. The only thing that the room did not have is a welcome book... More

The beds were comfy and clean although the linens weren't in the best condition. There was debris and a toilet paper roll sticking out from under the bathroom vanity so I'm sure the room wasn't cleaned properly. I heard the staff arguing with guests on the phone 3 times when I was at the counter waiting for something. That's a... More

Room facilities were good enough - including microwave, good sized fridge and coffee making facilities. However this was let down by a reception staff that were below average and a breakfast room that was woefully inadequate for the number of guests meaning that there was a scrum in the morning - Denny's is close by - and was better than...

Good amenities and service. We enjoyed our stay. Nice hot breakfast! This hotel is very family friendly. They also provide discounted prices to area attractions. They were very accommodating. The room was nice. Pool area was great as well.

From the staff, room, breakfast, pool, everything was great. Extended my trip by 2 days since so much to do in area and the hotel was a welcome place to unwind and relax. All the staff was friendly and accommodating. The room was comfortable and inviting.
