“Great Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

It's close-by to a putt-putt course and right off of Richmond Road. The staff were helpful and the room was very nice. My only complaint is the breakfast and how it fills up too quickly (plus not enough room).

This was a new hotel that was very nice and relatively inexpensive. The breakfast was excellent. The internet was good. The location was close enough to CW to get there in a short time but you do need to drive and park there.

This hotel gives a good bed, good room and a good breakfast and that is about it. Some of the decor could use updating and the washing maching and internet were broken when we stayed. Beds are a little firm. Great location - close to all historic areas.

The breakfast buffet was terrible! Few choices, including very dry, tough sausage patties. One of the least appetizing we've seen. However, the worst thing at the buffet was the roach that ran under the table. Ick!!! We just got up and left quietly. Didn't want to gross out the other guests!

I choose this hotel based on comparative price; seemed the best price for a decent place to stay. Was in Williamsburg for an overnight visit to see my college student son. Hotel staff was very friendly, room was clean and comfortable. Location convenient. Only downside I would report was the TV reception was poor on many channels, which probably wouldn't have mattered if it wasn't a March Madness weekend.

Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff was friendly, quick check-in and check-out. Quiet rooms and the common areas were well-kept. Decent breakfast. Minutes from Colonial Williamsburg. Shopping and restaurants nearby. Reasonably priced and would definitely stay here again.
