A very nice, comfortable and pleasant experience. We were returning from the OBX early to get away from the hurricane and wanted a place to relax. The free continental breakfast was very good. My daughter enjoyed the salt water indoor pool. Our room did have a light bulb out which was replaced immediately after we called. The power went out... More

Clean, comfortable, stylish rooms. Variety of pillows from soft to firm. Huge breakfast including: turkey and regular sausage, hot cinnamon buns and the rest. Rooms have Keruig coffee pots. Here is an example of how personable their service is: first night we pulled blankets off one of the beds and doubled up the other. The cleaning staff kept our preference... More

Stayed for 3 nights for a Busch Gardens vacation. We always stay in Holiday Inns, and this location met our needs, with 2 complaints, however: first, the pool was murky and smelled awful, so much that we did not use it after trying it out the first night. We asked the front desk if something was broken, but the guy... More

Awful!! Floor in hall outside pool always wet with no sign. I fell hard, my son fell 2xs. Asked for extra sheets for pullout couch and was told, "we don't have any". The toilet did not work well and the tub did not drain. The price was ridiculous for a crap experience. DO NOT stay here

We stayed her the beginning of the week, during the hottest period of time in Williamsburg. Temperatures were over 100 degrees. The hotel offered a cool and comfortable respite from the heat, and place to recharge, and relax. We stayed in a room with a single king-size bed. It was clean, and comfortable. Spacious enough, with a small couch to... More

Friendly staff and convenient location for our purpose. Close to Busch Gardens, Yorktown Battlefield, outlet malls, and Historic Williamsburg. The room had a VERY musty smell when we walked in - propped the window open for 30 min (thanks to the Gideons) and all was well. TV, fridge, plenty of outlets, and it was clean. WiFi worked well.

We found this modest hotel to be of decent value for the money, although there were some maintenance issues that inhibited our stay. We had to ask to switch rooms after the first night due to the air conditioning leaking and the carpet getting soaked. We told the front desk about it earlier in the afternoon and they sent someone... More
