It was the worst hotel we have ever stayed at. A family of four. The kids didn't even want to lay in the bed or use the bathroom. The room and bathroom were beyond disgusting. For $113 you expect better. This was worse than a Super8, we have never stayed there, but know they don't have the best reputation.It wasn't... More

I thought we would try this hotel based on the good reviews I had read about. We booked three night and left after the first. We really tried to like it, but the cons kept piling up. Pros: Clean, good location, modern showerhead. Cons: Small, uncomfortable beds. Floor creaked and moved underfoot in two places in our room. Tiny bathroom.... More

Stayed for one night; located in Colonial Williamsburg. Nice location and an overall nice place to stay. The staff was friendly and the facilities clean. The pool was a nice evening treat; it was open until 10:00 -- although later is always nicer. The internet service here was excellent. Plenty of nearby places to visit and eat. Highly recommended.

The hotel itself was fine. I was more impressed with the helpfulness of the staff. We didn't eat the breakfasts or use the pool due to time. It was clean and the wifi was fast. The provided a map of the area that was very helpful.

The room was well furnished and clean, no negatives at all. Quiet at night on a weekday in late June.

This hotel was fine for a short stay for the weekend. It was pretty clean and enough room. The pool is small but warm and clean. The only problem we encountered was with the plumbing.

We have always stayed downtown off of bypass road. The steady traffic was annoying at times. This hotel is away from that and closer to the theme parks. The rooms were a little outdated.

My wife and I travel to Williamsburg, VA three to four times a year. We spent part of our honeymoon there and have returned many, many times over the last 48 years, so I think we can say we have a real feel for the area.

I stayed here twice, in October and April. The motel is located on Parkway Drive near Second Street. It's not within walking distance of the Williamsburg attractions, but within a short drive. Maybe 5 minutes to colonial Williamsburg, and Busch Gardens and Water Country are about 10-15 minutes away. The owners were friendly and helpful. The first time I stayed... More

We stayed for a mini-spring break. We were exceptionally impressed by this location. The room we stayed in was so clean. The carpeting looked like new, the bathroom was so well maintained with fresh-looking tile on walls and floor. The mini-kitchen in the efficiency functioned well during our family's stay and made the visit with kids much more affordable! This... More
