“Unusual but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

I wasn't sure what to expect from this Best Western, because their properties can be so different. This one seemed to be an older hotel remodeled and updated. It consists of two brick buildings that look very "Colonial".
The King "suite" was spacious but had a small bathroom. It was the old style with the sink inside the bathroom. Worked fine for guys, but might not work as well with ladies. The room had a microwave and refrigerator.
The breakfast was a step up from the usual Continental breakfast. We had scrambled eggs and sausage gravy one morning, and eggs and sausage the next. The rest of the bar included the usual waffle-maker, cereal, bagels, yogurt, fruit, etc. The service at the breakfast was very good. The ladies seemed to take pride in their work.
I would recommend it to anyone staying overnight or for a weekend.

Very average Best Western fare although the outdoor pool was a bonus during the heat wave. I must congratulate the hotel management on agreeing to change our room when we found that the one allocated had been used by a NOT PERMITTED smoker! the hotel is supposed to be non smoking and a previous guest had violated the rules much to the despair of the owner.

I was not sure about this hotel being that it is a Best Western, I have had some bad experiences with Best Westerns in the past, but this hotel was very nice and clean. The staff was nice and the free breakfast was nice, for being free. I have no complaints and would stay here again. It's not a new hotel,a little dated, but I thought it was very quaint. The bed was new and there were plenty of pillows. The price is very good for what you get.

We arrived in Richmond, Va on May 22nd unannounced and were extended a room after 10:00 pm with a very fair nightly rate. The hotel was nice and clean with very large rooms. The only issue that need addressing is that the TV was small in size and difficult to enjoy as far as it sat away from the beds, but outside of that, all else was a thumbs up.

This was one of the cleanest motels I have stayed in. Everyday my room was well cared for. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I would recommend it to anyone traveling in the Richmond area.

We stayed for 3 nights while my dad was in the VA Hospital having surgery. I can't say enough about the friendliness and the helpfullness of the staff. From the breakfast lady to the housekeeping and front desk. We will be back soon to the area and will definately stay here again!!

Room Tip: Don't pass this gem up!!

I had a glitch in the reservation process and called the Customer Service Division. The next day i was called by the manager who apologized and offered to have me stay with them at a reduced rate if i was willing. His genuine concern and offer was accepted and I booked a night which turned out to be a very pleasant experience. I will definitely rebook when I am in the area as the accommodations were excellent from the complimentary breakfast to the friendly staff.

Room Tip: The Jacuzzi room is worth the extra cost if it is available!
