Bought two nights off groupon for less than 60.00 a night so was a little nervous going into it. Room was clean, shower was hot. Plenty of towels and when we came back second night the room was cleaned very well and smelled great! Centrally located to almost everything. Plenty of restaurants and stores in area. Overall a great quick... More

My best friend and I have stayed at this location several times and they are so great at trying to get us the room number that we request....we also enjoy their hot tub - the temperature is just right and the free breakfast is always a welcome addition

Thank you for your review and we do truly apologize for the difficulties you faced during your stay. We did inspect the room with a company and no activity at all was found.

Made reservations for 1:00 PM over 2 months in advance. Got there and they wouldn't have room clean until 3. Came back at 3, and the rooms still weren't clean. They gave me keys to 2 different rooms that were still being cleaned.

Good Morning Sir, We are deeply sorry that we were not able to honor your request of a 1:00pm early check-in. Sundays are our high check out days in which in some and most cases we will not have rooms available until 3:00pm. I also would like to apologize about the first room that you went to not being ready.... More

This is a really nice hotel and well located. I used it as a home base to visit Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown. It is clean, quiet and the beds are comfortable. You will get a good nights sleep. I did have a problem with check in. I asked for a quiet room and they had reserved one at the back... More

We only were here one night and didn't really have time to enjoy some of the amenities. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They recommended a very good restaurant when we asked.

The rooms were nice and clean. We thoroughly enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub as well as the hot breakfast and coffee in the lobby. The hotel sold us discount tickets to Busch Gardens which were a real savings (bring cash). If you have children the hotel is very close to Dairy Queen, Golden Corral and Cracker Barrel so... More

Don't miss this hotel. The location is great, but what made our stay great was the personal service we received. What to do on a rainy day, no problem. Where to go for a walk-in clinic at night, again, no problem. Try to find driving directions even when you don't have an address, they found it.
