We stayed here last weekend at the start of our short road-trip vacation.
The hotel has seen better days and could really do with some renovation. The rooms were comfortable and clean, but dated.
The staff were helpful and nice and kind of made up for the hotel's age and condition.
The A/C unit in the room was noisy and the (free) internet was painfully slow, almost unusable. Why give it free and have a poor speed/service? I'd rather pay and be able to use it. We were planning our trip and it took soooooo long to open even the nost basic of websites. Really annoying.
The (free) breakfast was actually pretty good, a nice choice of hot/cold food and a very hard-working staff member keeping it all together when it got busy.
My kids used the pool which is awkwardly located right next to the lobby/reception, but siad it was OK, could do with opening a little earlier (did not open until 9am I recall).
The location of the hotel is in the heart of Jamestown from what I could see, the area is a bit rundown. When we arrived there was a tailgate party going on in the parking lot (!), a bit redneck but harmless enough. There seemed like some kid of reunion or wedding party in or near the hotel which made it a bit noisy and also the walls are very thin and we could hear the people in the room next door as if they were sitting in ours.
The remote control did not work at all with the TV, which was a total pain, but there were a good selection of channels to keep the kids happy.
The plus point is that there is alot to do near to Jamestown, so this hotel is not a totally bad place to stay. I don't think we would stay here again when next in the area, definately try the Hampton Inn or Comfort Inn which are both about a 5-10 minute drive away, nearer the highway.
