This is an older Best Western that sits off the main drag, and as a result, it is quiet and restful. There is easy access to I95 and there are 2 good restaurants within walking distance, and many nearby by car. Rooms tend to be dark, but they are clean, neat, and comfortable. Breakfast is god. Staff is uniformly helpful...

We spent two nights here on a post-Christmas trip to Richmond and it was perfect for our needs. The room was much bigger than comparably priced hotels, neat and clean, comfortable and super quiet. The hotel has a castle-like feel, which was really fun! The breakfast was ample and filling, and a great value. Excellent service from the staff.

We and another couple drove from several hours away to look at an antique car. We needed a quick place to stay for the night, and have been pleased with BW+ hotels in the past. The guest rooms were a little dated, and the bathrooms have a weird configuration (a countertop beside the commode and across from the shower -...

Penny was so kind and provided us a fantastic breakfast, which was hands down the best complimentary breakfast we have ever had. Justin was friendly and personable during checkout, having us leave with a laugh and a smile. Excellent staff and service. Thanks Best Western.
