This hotel is in a great location for people who want to walk to the Colonial area and not spend a lot. The rooms were clean but small. The bathroom was tiny but updated. The bed was not the greatest if you like a firm mattress and the tv was small (but a flat screen). For the convenience of being... More

Check in was quick and easy. Got to the room after a short hunt for the elevator in the back of the building. The room was very outdated; maybe trying to keep the historic williamsburg feeling going. The hotel business area was poorly kept. Hotel restaurant pretty much turned us away because they were too busy to get to us... More

Though the price was right, the location was excellent, and the beds were comfortable, the hotel needs a lot of attention. The wallpaper was peeling, the tub was stained, grout was mildewed. The area outside the pool (tiled "breezeway" with lounge chairs) was absolutely filthy, with dirt, cigarette butts, and debris.

This is a basic hotel. Everything in my room seemed clean and the front desk people were nice. Soundproofing between rooms is not good. People next door had a loud argument and while I could not hear the words I could hear the voices. The heater / ac is very loud! It is a weird layout and hard to find... More

Stayed over a long weekend to visit Busch gardens with my husband and three kids. The hotel was ok; the rooms are showing their age and are in need of either a deep clean or an upgrade. The staff was pretty ambivalent to any requests or inquiries; one day after coming back from the park, we found that housekeeping had... More

Thank you for your comments. I will find out who said that we did not have breakfast - it is served from 8-11 daily. On next visit please let front desk know that train bothered you and we will happily place you in the front of the building. Thanks for the comments and I will address. Neal More

When we checked in they mistakenly had us down for a "pet friendly" room, but I'm allergic to cats, so they gave us a different room. It went downhill from there. It reeked of stale cigarette smoke, contrary to what I did request, and notwithstanding a "no smoking" sign placed in the room. The entire lock to the safe was... More

Came here for a quick weekend getaway with the family. Pool was large but dirty. Dead bugs and food pieces everywhere. Hot tub was not hot, same temp as pool and it felt as though there was a film over your skin when you got out of pool. Room was clean but old. Website I bought room from states free... More

Last minute trip to Williamsburg on Easter weekend and wanted to avoid paying elevated prices so booked this hotel. Great location, can walk to Colonial Williamsburg area if you are in average shape. Room was generally clean and bed was surprisingly comfortable. Bathroom was small (very small) and outdated. We did kill a roach in bathroom but otherwise no problems.... More
