Our room was very clean and neat. The staff was very helpful and courteous. Charlot, in the kitchen was wonderful... This was the best hotel we stayed at during our one mounts stay in Richmond, VA. And we stayed at four other hotels...

The rooms are large, clean, and comfortable. Even the TV is upscale. Best of all (for me), the wireless speed: a) works and b) is fast! Staff are exceptionally helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was not outstanding but more than adequate (I mean, really, who cares?). I'll be staying here every time I'm in Richmond from now on.

This hotel rates 9.5 out of 10. Almost everything was excellent, including the room cleanliness, the staff service, the breakfast, the general condition of the interiors. Only a couple slight negatives: the exterior looks a little old, and as some rooms allow smoking, there are guests hanging around smoking outside some entrances. Highly recommend this hotel if you are staying... More

Beautiful motel in an interesting setting. Lots of brick trim and architecture make it visually interesting. We ended up in a handicapper room (3rd floor, with an elevator) and it was exceedingly spacious! Anyone traveling with a wheel chair would not have a problem with this room. Very clean, comfy, firm beds. Air conditioner in room worked very well. Breakfast... More

Quiet property, friendly staff, easy check-in, plentiful parking. Clean and comfortable room, soft bed/pillows, nice cable selection and standard amenities. Morning breakfast included an assortment of cereals, fruit, bagels/muffins, waffles and the like. Pool was open and clean. Great choice and value for a short stay - we would definitely return.

After staying here a year ago, I decided to return again the next time I needed a hotel in Richmond. Tylette and the rest of the hotel staff were very courteous and accommodating. As last year, the bed was comfortable, the breakfast great, and the customer service amazing. If I come to Richmond again, I'll definitely stay here.
