Great location, okay price...BUT: We were celebrating a special event and stayed in a hot tub upgraded room. We got into the tub to relax only defined we were covered with yellowish-brown scum. I am not squeamish, but it was one of the most disgusting things I've seen in a hotel, particularly for the price. We took photos to show... More

This motel is a bit dated but very clean and the staff are wonderful! You can't beat it for location. We were in town for a High School reunion and it was so fun to see how the area has grown. Our room faced the beach and we slept with the patio door open so we could hear the seagulls.... More

The hotel is across the street from the river and allows you to be in the middle of all the action on the River Walk. The hotel was clean and priced at a good rate. We had a great view across the river and enjoyed our stay.

This location is lovely...the hotel itself shows some wear, but not enough to deter us from staying for the second time. I can forgive some of the little things. We loved the area, the walkways, shops, restaurants. The hotel is overpriced, but, hey, it's a resort area! We've stayed in worse for more! Had breakfast in the restaurant...excellent. Would stay...

The hotel while it could use a face lift was very nice. The location could not be beat. It was right in the heart of Historic Yorktown, right on Yorktown beach. I would definitely stay there again given the chance. The restaurant is great for breakfast but way over priced for dinner, so look for other options.

Stayed here recently - the good - great location and great views. The bad - imagine a 1950s motel with little updating and you have this place. It is not that that is bad it is just that the room rate should be $29.99 not $156. The motel was mostly clean, just a few hairs in the shower. Plenty of... More

This is an older hotel that could use some updates. The carpet in our room could definitely be replaced at this point in time. There is little to no storage space. The room was clean and we had plenty of towels. The elevator was like a sauna, almost unbearable in the afternoon. One night the safe in our room would... More

The view from the rooms is great and they have a little restaurant which serves a nice breakfast. While it isn't a new hitel we found... More

We stayed at this hotel upon recommendation from one of the staff members at the Victory Center. We had stayed in Williamsburg for two nights and wanted to stay a third night. However, there was no availability at any hotels in Williamsburg. We didn't know where we were going to stay so we were glad that this hotel was recommended... More

By far the rudest, meanest person on the planet. NO people skills or empathy in this poor excuse of a woman or human being. Refused to give me her boss' name or phone number. Flat out lied to me on the phone stating she took my reservation and told me about cancellation policy. When I told her who I talked... More
