“Should NOT be recommended by AAA”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012 via mobile

A McDonald's cup holding open a window was our first clue. The TV cable pulled out of the wall and hanging there was the next. The final straw was wiping down behind the toilet and ending with a black rag.

From stained towels to showers in a tub full of water (whether you wanted it or not), this motel should be avoided. It's obvious many people call this motel their home sweet home (satellite tv dishes and Christmas trees).

We didn't notice any drug or prostitution activity (then again we weren't seeking it out) as mentioned in the last review, but the security of the building was still not fixed, even after complained about over a month ago. LEAVE THE EXTERIOR DOORS SHUT AND LOCKED!

The location of the hotel was prime and I have to say, besides the toilet grime and the old fixtures, they do their best to keep it clean.

We won't return again but it will be a relief to see this place either close or change hands. It's clear the management at this establishment does not care.

I was given a room that had just been disenfected and had a sickenly strong odor of chemicals. I had to change rooms and was given a room on the 3rd floor. Elevator was gross and so were the hallways. Second room had no smell of chemicals but was not very clean..

I was very disappointed with this Super 8 Motel. Previous stays at other Super 8 Motels were very satisfactory. This motel was run down, bedspreads were stained with cigarette holes, the maid service was spotty, the lighting was dim, I had to request tissues, towels were not replaced, breakfast was a joke, and the only positive was the low price. The breakfast was almost non-existent, I had to ask for sweetener for my coffee, the orange juice was watered down and tasted like dishwater. One of the light fixtures in the room was broken, and the large bureau mirror was unsecured to wall and posed a very dangerous situation as it very easily could have fallen over. In this case, "we got what we paid for". I would not recommend this motel, and I would gladly pay more to stay somewhere else when I next visit Williamsburg. I am tempted to ask for my money back!!!
