“Basic rooms, chaotic lackluster breakfast, good value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

The room was basic but acceptable. Double beds were small but comfortable. Bathroom was ample and housekeeping did a great job. One day we even returned to find towels made into swans on the bed. The pool could have been more clear but was fairly clean. The free breakfast selection needs to be revamped. Biscuits and gravy were saltier than the Dead Sea. Muffins and pastries were drier than a pile of dead leaves. The only eggs offered were hard boiled. But let me properly describe the free breakfast experience at this location. Remember the scene in Jurassic Park when the cow is lowered into the Velociraptor pen, squeels and carnage can be heard, and then the destroyed harness is pulled out? Ok, now you are familiar with the breakfast experience at the Quality Inn on Bypass Road in Williamsburg. It's just like that. While I would stay there again, I will forgo the free breakfast and let the animals enjoy it instead.

Kind of a dump but a good price, if you're just needing a night near Colonial Williamsburg, it's ok. If your hotel stay is part of your vacation experience, spend a bit more and go elsewhere..there are plenty of options.

The hotel is a great location to Historic Williamsburg, it is a short drive away. The hotel room is clean but dated. The sheets and towels were new. The breakfast is basic w/waffles, it was fine for our family. For the price, you can't beat it!

Room Tip: The rooms were very quiet, we didn't hear anything!

For $65 a night during 4th of july in a tourist area, well you can't beat that! Nothing fancy, but a great price-i saw a leaking window, ice machines broken X2, some wall paper needing repair, and some molding missing from the elevator--but again 65$ per night, a good value.

The motel was nice - comfortable, safe, and quiet. However, I could not get on Wi-Fi. The only Wi-Fi available was evidently from the Comfort Inn next store. The signal strength for it was too weak to get on Wi-Fi.

The only reason I gave this hotel 1 dot (Terrible) is because there was not an option to give negative dots (Disgraceful).

Here's what happened. Our first night we had to call the front desk 4 times because the adjoining room was having a party. They called up to room the first 3 times but on the fourth time they said they did everything they could. The party was going strong until about 3am. The next morning with little sleep we made our way to Colonial Williamsburg. After a full day of walking around, we arrived back to the hotel around 5. We were told that our neighbors had left. We were starting to feel better about the experience until we walked up to our room. When we got there we saw the that the top door lock had been keeping our door open all day since the cleaning crew finished. I flipped out! I asked when they cleaned and the front desk said before noon. Our door had been open for more than 5 hours. Luckily nothing had been stolen. After hours of complaining, the only thing they were willing to do was give us a free night stay at a later date. Not going to happen!

The front desk was not helpful and had no idea what they were doing. They looked like deer in the headlights when I was talking to them. They reluctantly called the manager, who was not onsite, after I started to raise my voice in the crowded lobby.

The entire hotel was dirt and very old. The bathroom door looked like it was going to fall off the hinge. I did not feel safe at any time. We did however see a few kids cleaning the pool on multiple occasions because of strange items floating in the water.

I am a normal guy with a normal wife. If you read this and still decide to stay there, 1. you are dumb 2. you are making a huge mistake 3. you are going to regret it. For the sake of your vacation, please stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: Worse hotel I've every stayed in!!!
