The staff was friendly, but the room itself was not in good condition. The bed covers had multiple stains and there was also a blood stain on the curtains. Old, dirty. Needs new bed covers, curtains, and updates!

We picked this hotel (unfamiliar with Richmond) because it was close to the museums. What a difference a mile can make! The hotel was "on the other side of the tracks" unfortunately, and when we tried to park the car near our room, we saw several men, women and children around a covered awning, eating and drinking beer in the...

The group asked if they could have events in the parking lot prior to their arrival date and I told them they could not do that, but they still did it anyway without our... More

If I had to visit Richmond again, I might stay here. But I'd probably upgrade to another chain. This was another chain and it's supposedly now renovated, but it doesn't look like the renovations are finished. The restaurant closed August 1 and no on told our group about that, which made it not great for finding breakfast. Pool is tiny... More

I am a Richmond native. I just wanted to lay up on the outskirts of the city. The room was immaculate. The service impeccable and the location was perfect. Nacho Mama is a nice little quaint spot right in the hotel which cut down on travel.
