After reading reviews from other travelers, I had low expectations but booked anyway because of the convenience to Colonial Williamsburg. Our one bedroom suite, while far from the lobby, was roomy, tastefully decorated and clean. The mattress was firm--I really appreciated that. I did not see any of the maintenance issues cited by other travelers--I thought this place was very nice. The continental breakfast had many choices, including some cold protein items (yogurt & hard boiled eggs). Our room was very quiet and the exterior areas nicely landscaped. The location is next to the visitors center where you can pick up a free shuttle to Colonial Williamsburg. We were thrilled to learn that with our hotel stay we got free passes for all three of us to Williamsburg for our entire visit--this was a huge plus as a 1 day ticket cost $34 each for adults. I think this was a special during March however. We got a very good off-season price making this hotel a superior value for what we paid. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel, even if paying quite a bit more during the busy season.
