Yes, the rooms are big and yes, it is a convenient stop between DC and Florida. That said, we won't stay here again. The room alarm clock was set to go off very loudly at 5:30am and so I was rudely awakened by a woman's voice sayign "good morning campers" and continuing to gice the breakfast menu. When she had finished, i thought i might be sble top go back to sleep, but the news picked up where she left off. By the time I got up and pulled the plug on then lock - across the room, I was fully awake and it was not even 6 am. Whe I reported this to the woman at the desk, instead of sympathizing, she decided to blame me. "You should have checked it." When I said I'd never had to check the alarm clock before and maybe the cleaning crew could do so, she decided to blame them by saying that they may have set it to gomoff when they we dusting. A simple "what a horrible way to start the day," would have acknowledged that it was a grim way to wake up without blaming anyone for a situation that no one could remedy.
Cleanliness, as others have noted, was a problem. The woman in the breakfast room wiped off a table, put the rag in the sink, and then pulled a bunch of plastic spoons out of a drawer and started arranging them to put in a container - grabbing both handles and bowls of the spoons all without washing her hands. The coffee cups were jammed so tightly together that one had to grab both the base and the top (where you drink) to pull them apart.
Amenities expected in a motel in this chain were not there: no notepad or pen, no bathroom
supplies except soap. Pillows were small and the blanket very thin. We will look for a better place to stay on our next trip on 95.

On our way to Florida, we decided to stay at this hotel again because we enjoyed it when we stopped in June. The hotel clerks are very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is convenient and the rooms are very clean. The swimming pool was heated and the breakfast is very good. We'll certainly stop here again.

Great place for stopping between Port Canaveral, Fl and Richmond, Va. Large rooms, friendly staff, nice heated pool and great continental breakfast in the morning. See you again soon. Lots of restaurants to choose from at this exit.

We have stopped here many times over the years. We like the renovations, the fact that you park right in front of your room, good breakfast and relatively clean. That was until recently. Everything was clean until I walked into the bathroom and noticed a very sticky floor. I didn't dare walk into the bathroom without shoes! That was not all, the toilet had NOT been cleaned in a while!!!

We are not sure if we want to stay there again and we are very disappointed because we really like the restaurant across the parking lot.

Room Tip: We prefer the smaller building on the left, because it is the newer building. But make sure you chec...

Good place for stopover after a long drive. Parking is just outside your door. Rooms are clean, quiet and beds are comfortable. Internet was kinda slow. Breakfast had a good variety of choices. Price of the room was a lot more than the other surrounding hotels but it's location is big plus considering that it is very much accessible to I-95.

We stayed for a night on the way from NY to Florida. Great stopover the rooms are all located on,ground level and your parking is just outside your door. Rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. We didn't stay for breakfast so I am not able to comment.
We will definitely keep this place on our list of stopovers, very convenient.
