We stayed here for 3 nights while doing an arts/historical tour over MLK weekend. After reading some of the other reviews, I was a bit apprehensive. I have to travel on emergency response sometimes, and I have stayed in some real dumps. The price was the best I could find in Richmond for a decent chain. I don't really understand what all of the complaints are about. It was not perfect, the tub needed refinishing (not dirty, just old with a little rust), the carpet in the elevator needs to be replaced, they never cleaned the in-room coffee pot, and forgot to get us wash cloths one day. Other than that, I had no problems. I accidentally booked a smoking room on Travelocity, but did not smell smoke. Nor did I smell smoke in the hallways or on the elevator. I cannot stand tobacco smoke, and never detected any except on a couple of other smoker guests as they walked by. The breakfast is standard with waffle irons, fruit and other assorted carbo loaded items. They also had the sausage and eggs. Tea and coffee available at all times, and cookies at the front in the afternoon. Lots of people there had pets, but I only heard dogs barking one time. The walls are thin, but I was not kept awake by noise. The front desk staff were OK, nothing to write home about. Hat-on-backwards guy was pretty useless, and the middle aged Indian gentlemen was even less comprehensible than most, but again, I didn't expect much there. The location is just far enough away from I-95 that we didn't really hear any noise. Restaurant choices were pretty limited, mostly fast food and typical small town mexican and chinese. There is a city park that contains the ruins of a Civil War fort right behind the hotel, and Drewry Bluffs (part of Richmond National Battlefield Park) is just a couple of miles away. We had a fridge, microwave, and coffee pot in the room with a flat screen TV. For $58/night on a holiday weekend, you just can't beat it. This is comparable to the La Quinta in Virginia Beach, but the price was better here.
