Friendly and accommodating staff. Rooms were clean, but could benefit from a little decor update. Front desk honored my request to be in the back, on the end and away from the noise. Parking lot well lit and free!

Greeted by friendly staff, this hotel is perfect for staying one night while travelling. It's kind of uninspiring, and mostly due to the location (on a turnpike). They've tried to make it more homely with planting etcetera which is great. They have a pool as well as a small gym with a few machines. The overall impression is that this... More

The room was clean and the staff were friendly. We were in the back building which did not have an elevator. This was not an issue for us. Only down was the internet was spotty. I would definitely stay at this Best Western again though.

We were recently in the area for a lacrosse tournament. The hotel is in a great location for being able to get to the fields, and a short distance from the Short Pump shopping area. The room was spacious and very clean. My daughter and I had one of the best night sleeps. The mattress were perfect. We had a... More

They have a sign out on the main road but there's a car "pool" wash that hides the building and the area look like a dump till you turn into the driveway then you're looking at Williamsburg Governor's palace type buildings!

Great hotel with clean big rooms and comfy beds. I was only there a short overnight for a business trip with my husband but the breakfast was perfect too. The hotel was very interesting looking on the outside as well.

Over night stop on the way north. Such a cool hotel! My kids loved staying in a "Castle"! Rooms were clean and breakfast was excellent. I do wish they served bacon. This a non-smoking facility. Thumbs up for that! It's a bit hard to find the entrance and is located behind the Car Pool car wash. Look for that and... More
