Very clean. Separate Breakfast room with full continental breakfast. For families this is a great place. Our first night there we were tired from travel so we ate a Sal's Italian adjacent to the property. You should also know that this property is about one half mile from the Colonial Williamsburg Visitor Center were you buy tickets and your Colonial... More

I booked this through a supplier on Trivago. Do NOT trust suppliers like this for accurate information on the hotel. I had booked and paid for a King Non-smoking room only to find out upon check-in that they have no King beds. This was not the hotels fault. However, the room needed tending. When you walk in the sink looks... More

So long story short. When I checked into the hotel the front desk attendant (male, I'm a female with my husband and two boys in the car waiting) wanted me to 'check out my room' before I signed the paperwork. So he took me out the back of the lobby, through a hallway, to the back of the property, up... More

First off, I assume this hotel is owned by a different family. I say that, because, any other time I never have anything bad to say about this hotel. It's not that bad, but its always the little things that make a trip not so good. I will start off by saying that room 127 smells like cat urine. I... More

For the price, this is a great 2 star motel. Good location, spotless rooms, and friendly staff. The pool is tiny - really a plunge pool, however, it was spotless. The rooms are no-frills with old school floral spreads. Sink and mirror are outside of the tub/toilet area. Tubs had new enclosures. Fridges were cold. Skip the breakfast room except... More

Great Location for Colonial Williamsburg or Bush Gardens This motel is literally a half mile from the Colonial Williamsburg Information Center. On vacation time is valuable. This place is a real time saver as you are so close to everything. You can drive to the Information Center and start you tour. The Colonial Williamsburg buses leave every five minutes. Be... More

Not impressed by this hotel. It was just ok for one night: reasonably clean, the fan was loud, you can not adjust the air conditioner. It is just a button for cool or heat. The bathroom lock didn't work. The blankets didn't seem very clean. The mattress and pillows were not comfortable.

Easy to find, close to everything, spacious rooms, inexpensive, and very clean. The gentleman who checked us in even showed us the room before we signed anything to make sure it met with our approval - nice touch! I was pleasantly surprised that the carpet in our room was so clean that I was comfortable in bare feet. We will... More

I have stayed at many hotels the past couple years of my life and this is by far the worst one I have ever stayed at. It deserves well below one star. First, we check in and head around the back of the building, a creepy and dangerous looking area but sure lets be optimistic. We get into the room... More
