This motel was convenient to us, as we crossed the James River Bridge after 9pm and wanted to rest for the night before continuing our trip to Portsmouth the next morning. Check-in was pleasant, friendly young lady anxious to please, put us in ground floor, close to entrance as requested.
Room was clean, fresh, the usual toiletries and better-than-usual bath towels. Only complaint I have is, NO HAIR DRYER in the room. Next morning, I asked the morning lady at the front desk about borrowing one for my wife, she rolled her eyes back, blurted out, "That'll be a $5 deposit." I travel on a credit card so all the cash I had was $2 bills that I keep for tips. I offered this woman three $2 bills to hold as deposit, and she refused - said $5 - nothing else. How do you reason with a belligerent woman who cannot figure simple math? My wife left without a bath.
Continental breakfast was minimal as any I have seen, even for Econo Lodge.
I will probably try somewhere else next time. I like to keep my wife satisfied.
