“A Nice Place to Stay! However!”
Reviewed August 23, 2014

The motel is very clean and seemingly looks newer then it is. The location is terrific! The historic area pretty much just around the corner not far away at all. The air conditioner was very quiet in our room. The hotel staff was very courtesy and friendly. The only two things we would like to mention to those of you considering your stay at this motel is that the continental breakfast wasn't all that good as is usually the case at most hotels. This hotel features egg patties, waffles and the usual things you find like cereal, raisin bread, juice, etc. The other thing is that you can only enter the hotel from the front or around the back from the center off of the parking lot. If your room is on the end you cannot re-enter, but you can exit. Thought that was a little unusual. Anyway, overall we had a nice stay. The price is good to. I would recommend staying here, but just take into account the two things I've mentioned.

Room Tip: Get a room near to the front of the hotel, but not near the end. There's only an exit at the en...

Dear readthis2,

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We are sorry to hear that you were not pleased with our breakfast menu. We are always seeking input that will enhance the guest experience. We would love to know what else you were looking for that we didn't have. We do serve yogurt and kettle style oatmeal with toppings. We do have a total of 3 different entrances around the building and 2 additional that only allow for exits only. We are sorry that there was not one that was more convenient to your room that you could re-enter in at. We do appreciate your feedback and helping us to be a better hotel for our future guests. Thank you for your business and we hope to see you again soon.

Just stayed at this hotel two days ago with my husband and two kids and boy was I pleased!!! This hotel was recently renovated and very modern! The staff was very nice and we were very comfortable in our room. I just thought the comforters could be a little thicker. The bathroom was a tight squeeze but it wasn't a problem for us. The hotel was close to the outlets, Bush Gardens and Water Country. I will say that because breakfast ended early......9/930 I never made it so we ate out both mornings. My daughter enjoyed the pool which was clean and well kept! Overall great hotel to stay at when visiting Williamsburg! Can't wait to go back.

Have been staying at this location for over 35 years and seen its change......
for the best hotel ever in this location. From a friendly southern charmer
to an even better hotel which is more modern, still with its great staff
and friendly helpfulness. Always accommodating, beautiful updated rooms,
great mattresses and pillows after a long ride are a dream. Even though they no
longer have a front porch, I would love it if they could bring back some rocking chairs.
In the evenings we would sit out in front and watch the cars go by. And when its quite
the deer..... We love the quiet, peaceful, family environment at this hotel. It has grown
in size but kept it originality to the word hospitality...

Room Tip: rooms on the south side are quieter, and book 2+ weeks ahead for better rates

Dear REGINA A,

Thank you for your kind words and your loyalty. We appreciate your business! We are pleased to hear that you enjoy the new surroundings. The rocking chairs from the old hotel was missed by many but replaced with the new comfy soft seating in the lobby that has soothing music playing 24 hours daily.

The hotel is in a great location. Very close to Williamsburg. It has just been totally remodeled and the room and bathroom were beautiful. The shower actually has decent water pressure. I would highly recommend a stay at this hotel!!

This hotel was renovated last year and is very clean. We have season passes at Busch Gardens/Water Country and we've stayed here twice on our weekend visits and have our upcoming weekend visits already booked here. The rooms have a small frig and a microwave which come in handy. The beds are comfortable and rooms are decent size.

The breakfast that they provide is decent They do have the same food every day but there is some variety there. We had no issues with getting ice from the ice machines. We did not use the pool so I cannot comment on it.

It was a bit noisy late at night on our last stay. A number of people came in late and someone was pounding down the door across from us around midnight. The ice machines are also pretty noisy, so try to get a room away from them.
