When we first pulled up, yellow construction tape blocked car access to the lobby, piles of old carpeting were stacked up outdoors, and a decaying restaurant next door obviously had been closed for a long time. But, going to the front desk, we confirmed that yes, the motel was open for business despite the ongoing renovation. Our first-floor room was very clean and adequate despite a garish decor (one wall bright red, another dark yellow, and just one cheap landscape print on the wall.) Two queen beds were both very comfortable, A-C worked well, and bathroom had an unexpected extra -- whirlpool bath. A few minor demerits -- TV remote malfunctioned and had to be reprogrammed, cigarette butts littered the sidewalk, card key failed on Day 2 and had to be reset, and soundproofing wasn't adequate to block out guitar-playing neighbors. On the plus side, the free hot breakfast was above average, and staff was very courteous and attentive. Housekeeping was excellent. Wifi worked fine, and the large circular table near the window was handy for spreading out paperwork. The driveway is off a side street from Route 11, and the motel is in the rear of a partly vacant office complex, so finding it the first time is a bit of a challenge. Lots of restaurants within a half-mile drive, and it's convenient to downtown, Colonial Heights, and the interstates. A good choice for the budget-minded who can live with deficient cosmetics. Once the renovation is complete, it may look a lot better. We may return in the fall.
