“Not worth the cheap price”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2011

This hotel was falling to pieces everywhere. The outside railings and walkways were in such disrepair that we were waiting for it to fall through. The room was pretty typical for a Super 8. But, traveler be warned---there is a train track at the back of the hotel that comes by and blows the horn about every hour of the night!! The morning coffee was very stale and undrinkable.

By the looks of the outside of this Super 8, I was already worried. When we entered the room it was hot, humid, and smelled like feet. I have never wanted a bottle of Febreeze so bad in my life. TV remote broken. The bedding is old and horrid. The Pool was surrounded by cigarette butts and glass. Fun for the whole family.... NOT!!

The front office staff is very nice, that's the only positive thing I have to say about this hotel. The property is in desperate need of repair. The stairs are rusting, leaning and uneven. Holes are visible from where all the rust ate through. The place smells of moth balls. The bed is hard and the sheets and towels are very, very thin and used. Almost want to go buy my own towels and not use theirs. The train tracks are right behind the property and the train passes by periodically (the conductor makes sure to let everyone know he's coming!). To add to the noise of the hotel, the bikers that live here are very loud (so are their Harleys), early in the morning. I know you get what you pay for but I didn't realize the dollar was worth soooo little! Save yourself, stay somewhere else.

Although the staff here are pleasant, the rooms are antiquated and dirty. One of the beds in the room had stained sheets full of hair and the other was barely any better. Neither the bathtub nor the sink drained. When we called down to the desk to ask for help with the clogged drain, a young man came up with a plunger and still couldn't fix the issue. Bathroom was dirty and the floors were really just gross. We intended to stay for two nights and barely made it through one. The only positive thing I can say about is that there are worse motels in Williamsburg, but I couldn't get out fast enough and would never stay here again.

Check in for two nights was prompt and was done by a friendly staff member, Location was ok other than the train tracks behind the hotel, if train noise is a problem for you, stay either in the middle or front towards the road. The pool was closed which is no problem for me. I was given a King smoking room, upon entering I found the room clean with no bad smells. The only problem I saw was stains in the tub from maybe an old tub mat. I would have no problems what so ever staying here again

We ended up checking in late as we were travelling after a 5 hour drive from home. The place was a complete dump. The sheets were used and THIN, the room was covered in dust as it had not been used. One set of sheet in one bed was dirty adn we had to use the other bed. TV was older than I am (25 years old!) and it was not very clean at all. I would not recommend this to anyone! Pay another 25 bucks and get something much better!
