So far so good, I love the breakfast, they have a lot of stuff, very quite and so far so good. If you traveling with your dog make sure you have a crate otherwise you will not get housekeeper service. For the price is not bad...The pool is not bad either. Recommended. Ten minutes from Bush Garden and Water Country USA....

La Quinta is the best deal for traveling with pets, because they stay free! That said, I probably wouldn't stay here if I didn't have the dogs with me. Although the room had a refrigerator and microwave, there was no place to eat, really, except in bed. There weren't many healthy options at breakfast except the fruit salad and instant oatmeal. If you like white biscuits and pork sausage gravy, you're in luck. Fortunately, there's a Trader Joe's in Williamsburg, so you can pick up some organic bran muffins. :-)

There is an on-site restaurant, but we didn't eat there because they did not seem to have any healthy options, either.

I've stayed here before with family. This is the second time we've had problems with check-in. Because we were traveling as family, the clerk tried to check us into adjacent rooms. The first room had huge gash in the wall, and the second room had not been cleaned. The clerk did put us in other rooms; however, when our other family members checked in, they were also assigned to a room that was occupied. In the end our rooms were close to each other’s, but it was a hassle running back and forth to the front desk. Once the musical chairs with the rooms were resolved, we were mostly satisfied with their cleanliness and comfort. However, if you happen to be one of the unfortunate guests with a room facing the breakfast and game room, expect to hear noise from the pool and game area. During my stay, some guests decided to have a late night shuffle board tournament. Luckily, they quit before I called the front desk at 11 pm.

Room Tip: At check-in ask where your room is located in relation to the breakfast/game room.

Because of the price, I was expecting the usual La Quinta quality I have become accustomed to. I only use La Quinta when traveling with my dog. This hotel is an embarrassment to the brand. The building is old, the exterior is bleak. There is only a small patch of grass to walk your furry friends between the parking lot and an even creepier motel next door. The inside is not much better. There is only 1 elevator to service many rooms and the down button didn't work. The pool area is circa 1986. The breakfast pickings are slim, ever heard of bagels? The rooms are a joke for the price you pay. They are just old. There are not modern upgrades like flatscreen tvs or nice blanket or duvets. The bedspreads are just gross, there really should be health codes about those.
The one redeeming quality this place does have is their staff. All the staff members have been very friendly and helpful. That's made this stay durable.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have windows to the outside world, if that's important to you. Ask first.

The staff at the hotel were so nice and extremely helpful. We even took our dog with us and it was nice to be able to take her with us and not have to board her. My family and I will defiantly stay here again.

I enjoyed my three days here and it didn't cost an arm and a leg. Dog friendly like all LaQuinta's with plenty of room to walk your dog. They had bags too though they ran out. Decent breakfast. Rooms were well maintained. People were friendly and helpful. It's about 12 minutes from Colonial Williamsburg, within 30 minutes of both Jamestown and Yorktown. Minor issues with leaking faucets. I'll definitely stay here again if I'm in the area!
