The hotel is clean, has a heated pool, good breakfast in the morning with eggs, bacon, yogurt, waffles etc. There's a fitness room, laundry facilities, vending and ice. The beds were comfortable and each had 4 pillows!! Minor issues like not perfectly painted, rust in certain places. If your looking for RESORT type quality look somewhere else. We are already...

Located downtown this hotel has nice rooms in close walking distance to Riverwalk. Price was fair. Construction in progress so some noise during day. Staff gave us rooms streetside but did not get into room until late afternoon. Check in is ridiculous at 4 PM. Parking is $20 per day.

This hotel is great for families with children. The hotel indoor pool is much bigger than your average hotel pool, and the breakfast was fantastic. The decor in the main areas of the hotel is updated and decorated nicely. The bedrooms are clean and good enough.

Stayed here for the night with my son for his bday. Took advantage of a Groupon. The room was clean and the staff were helpful. It was as quiet as any typical hotel would be. Standard continental breakfast. Nice pool and hot tub (although the jets weren't working). No complaints, close to the outlets.

It's been a few years since we stayed at this location. There appears to have been come improvements. The rooms were nicely maintained. The staff was friendly. The free breakfast was generally fine and varied. We only experienced one time when the breakfast area had too many people, but otherwise the traffic there was fine. The location is terrific, the...

Grout between the tiles was very discolored, mold? Beds were extremely comfortable. Staff was great. Pool was overly chlorinated. Close to shopping, Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens. Got hotel room as package with Busch Gardens.

Front Desk Staff were very pleasant, caring, and eager to please us. I mentioned very loud neighbors and without asking she moved us to a room with no neighbors. Room #2 was clean and quiet, needed Desk Staff attention (plug in heater that housekeeping unplugged when vacuuming) but then was cozy warm and we got good rest. Bathroom was small...

This hotel is within 3 minutes of Colonial Williamsburg's Visitor Center. The rooms were nice, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was good, but the breakfast area was designed poorly and way too small. The staff was friendly for our entire stay. We will definitely be back.

It's a great location in Williamsburg. It's close to all the destinations you would like to visit. You're greeted with a smile and a staff that is nothing less than an A plus. If you're looking for a place to take care of you and enjoy your stay in Williamsburg this is the place
