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

Was pleased with our stay. Manager and staff was super friendly and professional. Restaurants were a couple feet away and tasty. Breakfast was included and they even had Krispy Creme donuts. Rooms were clean and a nice size. We had two rooms with a connecting door for our teenagers room.

It was a nice clean hotel with a good size room! The shower and bath is a nice size for two and the bed was comfy after a long day at busch gardens. Check in was super easy and the staff was friendly. I will definitely stay here again in the future.

Let me begin by saying we are normally Hampton Inn customers, but decided to take a long weekend trip to Busch Gardens during their Hall-o-Scream. Looking for a very inexpensive place to stay, we decided to give this Econo Lodge a try based on the positive reviews indicating how clean the hotel was. And, I have to say, the reviews... More

We stayed here overnight on our way to NC. The room was very clean. I would recommend staying at this hotel. Check in and check out was very quick. The staff was very nice. We even had a couch with a flip out bed for our kids. Overall, this was a good place for an overnight stay.

This family-owned motel is super clean and close to everything, right down to the sparkling pool. Everything had a fresh coat of paint, and there wasn't a speck of mold or litter anywhere. We could not have asked for a nicer staff or a better place to stay for the price. The value is terrific!
