Stayed here while at a conference. Knowing the age of the facility and that it's not Colonial Williamsburg's top tier property, I expected decent accommodations but nothing more.
The grounds were well-kept and surprisingly quiet & peaceful. Colonial Williamsburg was a short and pleasant walk away. The visitor center was right there and buses were available there but I always walked.
The room was dated in size and layout but clean and comfortable. Electricity was out for over 24 hours during our stay but the staff worked hard to keep things going. Thank goodness the window on our third floor room opened to relieve the stuffiness of no AC. I wish I had known, however, that the TV was plugged into the one receiver that was on the generator. Not so much for the TV (though weather reports would have been interesting) but for the light.
Breakfast was large and thorough. The outdoor eating area was more peaceful than the dining area inside. Only on the weekend did the crowd of families make the breakfast area resemble an Orlando hotel.
The conference facilities were surprisingly nice! Overlooking a small waterfall and very peaceful. When the electricity went out, the staff bent over backwards to accommodate us---even transporting the group in vans to the Williamsburg Lodge (which had electricity) for our dinner and the events the next day.
The pool was nice and large though there is little shade.
I did not eat at the restaurant that is nearby (Huzzah?).
