Stayed here after checking out of a comfort inn down the on bypass, needed Internet access. They had better wifi. The hotel was nice inside, clean, warm feeling. Room was spacious and nice. LCD tv. Great shower. Coffee and teas all day. Staff nice. The breakfast was very good, lots of choice. Bacon, warm scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, yogurt, waffles, bread, choices, oatmeal, cereal, and even fruit salad that was an added touch. If you want to spend the 110. 00, it is worth it. Great start for the day, we went to busch gardens. I would return.

It was very hot and the pool hit the spot. The staff was very friendly, I got the last room of the night. The breakfast was the highlight. "Crispy Cream" donuts (a first for my kids). The other parts of the breakfast we good too.

Ann and her staff made a bad situation (power outage for almost a full day) tolerable. They offered money back and/or putting us up elsewhere but we decided after a long day at Busch gardens to stick with them for the night. Glad we did, breakfast was on time and tasty. Would stay there again

Booked room for 4 days in August 2013 for our annual Bush Gardens vacation. When we checked in the room we found trash under the air conditioning unit. We over looked this as we were tired. The next day our kids were getting showers and removed a towel from the rack only to find the towel full of hair. The hair actually went well with the hair in the tub. My wife went down to the front desk and complained. The front desk clerk was great in finding us another room.

We've stayed at a couple of Country Inn and Suites and this was definitely the worst one we've stayed at. On a good note, the breakfast was good and the coffee was hot...

I booked this hotel to get points on my Club Carlson account and because I found a good rate on Tripadvisor.
The good--- Staff is VERY friendly and helpful. Breakfast is included and was plentiful, enough choices. Excellent location to parks and Colonial Williamsburg. We did not hear a peep from any other guests. Loved the cookies and fresh fruit, though sometimes when we stopped in there weren't any. Shower had ok pressure, but drainage was slow. Free wi-fi.

The other-- Kind of a tight lobby area, and breakfast area seemed very tight as well. The individual room A/C is a little loud. Pillows were terrible, flat and shapeless and beds were bouncy. Decor was dated and tired in our Queen room.

I misunderstood that there was a difference between "Queen room" and "Queen suite" and was disappointed when when we had only 2 queen beds and no pull out sofa, and no fridge. I asked if there was a "Queen suite" available, but at $100 more per night it would have been more than double the rate we got on the queen room and was not worth it for our 3 night stay.

The 3 night stay was fine but I will probably investigate other Carlson properties before I stay at this one again. Or perhaps even splurge for more spacious accommodations once updates are complete.

Room Tip: We were the very last room on the third floor, good for quiet, but the wi-fi seemed a little sketchy...

Good
Rooms were spacious
Front desk was very friendly
Great location within 5 minutes to Busch Gardens and other attractions
Free breakfast is very good with plenty to choose from.
outdoor pool is average

Bad
Room was a little outdated with tiny amounts of mold on the bathroom tile and wall paper.
train across the street can be a little loud in the morning.

Summary
Great hotel for the price (paid less then $100 night) and perfect for a short stay if you are doing Busch Gardens.

This is our first time at this hotel - very nice hotel, clean room, friendly front desk. We did ask for the frig and will pay $5 per day; there is also a microwave. AC very noisy. Previous posters have stated a problem with the curtains - behind the sheer curtains there is a white blackout curtain which you need to close, then close the sheers - no problem with sunlight in am. Package rec'd at check in was very organized - list of close by restaurants with addresses; list of main attractions with directions - all very clear. Our only problem is the children running through the halls and up and down the elevators until 10:30pm two nights in a row. And problem with pillows - nothing to them; they flatten as soon as you lay your head on them.
