While visiting with a large group, our friend's hotel room was given access to by the staff to someone else. He arrived back to find his room ransacked, his belongings had all been strewn across the room, his food had been eaten and there was drug paraphernalia and residue on the bed. As bad as all that was, the hotel... More

Room was decent but the pool is not what you might expect it was dirty and small. The room smelled unpleasant when you first enter. But overall it was an ok stay. The front desk personnel was friendly and pleasant. You get what you pay for and for the price it was satisfactory.....

We chose this motel due to its proximity to downtown Richmond. The staff at the front desk was friendly and efficient. However, when we entered to elevator to head up to our room, we were met with some very unpleasant, unidentifiable odors. A similar distasteful odor followed us down the hallway to our room. While it looked nice at first... More

Woke up to ants all over the place! Was so gross. Had to wash out our bags and everything in it before getting out as fast as we could. When we told the front desk about them she didn't seem alarmed and didn't offer any apologies. Will never stay here again. Not sure why there are any good reviews on... More

Keep driving and find another hotel. I got in late and was really tired. I was trying to get on the internet as they advertise free wifi. Couldn't get online for more than a minute at a time. Then I noticed things moving on the desk I was sitting at. Ants! Just what I need to deal with. Front office... More

This hotel is very easy to find. It is right off the exit. We found it very comfortable. The rooms were good size and very clean. The beds were comfortable and the sheets were soft. Much better then your average hotel. The towels were even much better then most hotels. When we were getting settled in, we were able to... More

Internet service took several minutes to come on, and disappeared when I was away from the computer for 5 minutes. In the morning the Internet wasn't even available for hours. I had a 1st floor room in the C building, which I had requested to be near the laundry. (Washers and dryers were fairly clean and worked. Housekeeping kindly brought... More

Spent the last week of June staying here. As far as the hotel goes I guess it worked for what we wanted but it was a kinda strange place. The elevator stunk bad! There is no lock on the outside doors to the hallway to the rooms. No security at all. It says you have to swipe your key but... More

We had a long drive from FL and every place we usually stay was booked. There were Clarion/Quality Inn signs, so we weren't sure which it was. The room smelled of cigarette smoke and was dark. The refrigerator was missing, so my husband went to the ice machine to get ice to keep our insulin cold, and the machine was... More

Stayed here for a night during a basketball tournament (the tournament had some deal with the hotel for $59/night) I was a little leery of staying here after talking with someone who had stayed the previous night, but was pleasantly surprised that everything was pretty good overall. No issues with the room, staff was friendly and helpful, check-in was fast.... More
