My family of five stayed here for two nights in a suite with 2 queen beds and a pullout sofa. The beds were very comfortable. The pullout sofa was another matter. The middle of the mattress was sunk in and you could feel springs everywhere. I mentioned it to the front desk clerk upon checking out, and he wished we had told them so they could have corrected the situation. He did knock a little off our bill.
One of our room keys never worked quite right, even after re-keying, and the second day, an employee happened to be walking by as we were trying it again. He said to try pulling UP on the door handle instead of pushing down, and lo and behold, it worked!
My husband and kids used the pool and hot tub. The pool was average size for a hotel but the hot tub was quite small. Still, they enjoyed it.
We did not eat in their restaurant because we wanted to try some of the local places. There are a lot!
The woman working at the front desk the evening we arrived was extremely helpful in planning our trip to Colonial Williamsburg, showing us the pamphlet with the current week's events, showing us on a map where the locals park, and other tips only a local would know.
One last thing that was a little strange... there were no towel bars in our room. There were two small double hooks. There is even a huge empty space on the wall over the toilet where you would expect to find towel bars, but nope, it was empty. So we had nowhere to hang anything up to dry once showers were taken and the bathing suits were draped over the shower curtain rod.
We stayed in room 407, and overall we were pleased with our stay. I probably would have rated it five stars except that a comfortable bed is my number one priority at a hotel.
