The hotel was clean, comfy and cozy and the staff were very cheerful and informative, just excellent. Located in a great spot. Enjoyed having so many restaurants within five minutes of the hotel. Huge Kmart across the street and Walmart not too far away. The only thing that was missing was the waffle maker. Got spoiled while I was in... More

The staff was the BEST we ever experienced, especially the Front Desk. The room carpet was either very old or very stained but was cleaned well. Any problems reported were handled except the jacuzzi by the pool which had non- working jets.

The room was good. It was clean. The hotel was convenient to everything we wanted to do in the area. Although there were lots of young children staying at the hotels, our room was always quiet. But, someone had open the doors at the indoor swimming pool, (not just one day but both days we tried to use it) and... More

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately the indoor heated pool does get very hot especially if there are a lot of people using it. Sometimes people open the doors to create a draft. Thank you for letting us know of the issue and we hope to see you in the future More

This hotel was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful about what to do and where to go. We stayed 2 nights and the only complaint was they need a bigger breakfast area. Our first morning we were a little late getting there and there was a long line and no where to sit. The 2nd morning we... More

Thank you for your review and yes we have a huge challenge during busy time with the amount of space we have for breakfast. We are currently building an outside patio area which should relieve some of the wait. Thank you again and come back and see us soon. More

The continental breakfast was outstanding. That saves a lot of money for the guests with kids in a busy tourist town. Plus the in door pool was very good. Great for a family in the evening or during bad weather. We are in our seventies so the breakfast was great for us also. And, we never heard a sound from... More

This was a great hotel that was very close to all of the Williamsburg sites that we wanted to visit. Our room was clean, fairly basic but nice. It rained one day of our visit and it was nice for the kids to be able spend the day in the indoor pool rather than in the rain at Busch Gardens.... More

We had a great experience at this hotel! Staff was friendly and very helpful. The rooms seemed updated recently and were nice and clean. The indoor pool was great, since it rained a few nights. My only small issue would be the continental breakfast. I was hoping they would change the menu daily, but they had the same food everyday.... More

Overall stay was pleasant. Staff was helpful and rooms were clean and comfortable. Only complaint was the breakfast was not very good and one morning there was no sitting available. I would stay here again.

This was a low budget trip. I had 3 teenagers I wanted to take to Bush Gardens and Water Country. Since we would not be spending much time in the room, all I really felt we needed was some big beds and an indoor pool. I went online and it seemed a King bed with a pull out couch was... More

The hotel was in a beatutiful location and kept well. The breakfast and parking was included and we got a 1 day free pass for Busch Garden Parking as well. A fabulous value. The pool and hot tub were clean and beds were comfortable. No problems with wi fi and staff was nice. I'd come back!
