I was surprised that Tripadvisor placed this motel in the Bed & Breakfast section; it is really misleading; it is really just a 1* motel. It does provide some simple breakfast at the so-called breakfast room, but they has no kitchen, just bought from supermarket, I guess, and very few people eating there. The lobby and front desk was so... More

The Captain John Smith lnn is magnificent and I have never experienced such incredible service before. It was so nice that it was hard to drag myself away from the hotel to go to see the historical sites. The room was large and most importantly, very clean. It is also within walking distance to many places to eat. I will... More

We are so thankful that we did not let the negative reviews posted about this hotel keep us from staying there. It was wonderful! The room was clean, bright and very comfortable, the service was friendly and helpful, and the complimentary breakfast was delicious. A great place to stay for a great price!

My two cousins and their families along with mine chose Williamsburg for our vacation this year. After driving from Chicago in 3 vehicles with 6 kids for 13 hours we finally made it there. Only to find out there was a power outage. The hotel we originally were scheduled to stay at, The Country Hearth Inn and Suites was blacked... More

Place is dirty and old. We checked in and out in minutes. I booked through travelodge.com and they refuse to refund. It cost me $200 but I was not going to let my wife and kids sleep here. It's apparent this place is not kept.

The picture is very nice, but the stay was worse than horrible, the train is right behind the hotel. The manager on duty was rude and informed us he did'nt care about public relations, we were quoted one price charged another than when we checked out he informed us his clerk made an error and we would need to pay...

We stay at his motel for 1 night every year on our way to the OBX. It is definitely not a fabulous place and there is a train that runs by. I would request a room towards the front of the motel where it is a bit quieter. A bunch of the rooms have been remodeled, but that ones that... More
