The Best Western in Doswell shares its parking lot with Paramount Park Kings Dominion. We did walk across the parking lots to the admission gates and into the park.
The Best Western could be a great location, especially at the $200. a night room + taxes I paid but it isn't. If you visit during the daylight hours you see one perception and after nightfall a very different one. They have some nice amenities for a family to enjoy: a pool, tennis court, volley ball, ping pong, a playground, a small (for kids) mini golf round, Denny's and an UNOs but at night you fear for your safety due to the number of wild, unruly unsupervised youth running in gangs throughout the complex. They were very intimidating. The final straw for us was when two young girls (13 & 14) approached my family and asked if they could take cover with us for a few minutes so these thugs would would leave them alone. It was not clear if these thugs were locals or hotel guests.
The place seriously needs visable security . They owe that to their paying guests and it wasn't there, for $200 a night we should feel that we are relatively safe.
Also, I paid cash and although I requested it, I was never given a receipt.
We would never go back.
