We were driving from CT to Richmond and did not want to deal with an 8 hour drive, so we shortened our trip. I wanted to avoid DC area but get past it so we had less than a 2 hour drive remaining in the morning to Richmond. I booked this hotel only about 5 days before we left, and only intended to stay one night and not do much. So basically two beds and breakfast were all we needed.
The rooms were fairly basic (not as nice as the Hampton Inn, Richmond south that we stayed the following night), but I paid 5000 points and $70 so I was fine with it.
I was much more impressed with the breakfast, which went beyond the basic free breakfast one usually gets: they had yummy cinnamon buns, omelettes (not custom made, but still good), sausage patties, good-looking biscuits with white gravy available, fruit, waffles, yogurt, etc. I didn't actually eat the yummy buns but would have liked to!
The hotel is right off the highway and avoids the metro DC area entirely so I would stay there again (and eat more breakfast!)
