Pineapple Inn and Housing Center
Reviewed June 7, 2010

I was afraid of staying at the Pineapple Inn after reading the review on Trip Advisor, however other friends had stayed at the hotel and said it was fine. So I stayed with my two friends for 3 nights. The hotel is not new, and we knew this, so we were happy to find that they had clean linens, comfortable beds, complimentary wireless internet access and also a microwave & refrigerator in the room. When we checked in we were given the on-call phone number in case we needed anything after the front desk closed. The hotel is not fancy, but it was clean and very convenient to other locations. Give this hotel a chance if you are looking for inexpensive, and not fancy.

Rooms are terrible. Raggy old stain linen and blankets. Dirty carpet and floors. Room had not been vaccum. Had a bad odor. Bed had a smaller bed box spring than mattress. Bath tub was stop up, water would not go down. Could not sleep in the bed. Sit on one side and the bed tilted over. Wash cloths and towels were old and very hard. Left red spots on my body. It was after 10:00 PM and the office was closed. Had to call the operator and ask that the owner be contacted so that I could be moved to another room. The other room was not much better, broken handle on the sink faucet. If it had not been late, and I would have to repack again, I would have gone to another hotel.

Please do nor stay at this hotel. You will surely be disappointed as I was.

We booked this hotel through Hotwire. This hotel was listed as a 3 star-and noted it was in line with Holiday Inn, so we booked it. Went to the lobby, the customer service was poor, we had asked for places to eat and the desk clerk just pointed and stated just go down the road and you will find somewhere to eat. After checking into the room we looked around, noted the phone did not work, pulled back the blanket and there was a big urine stain on the blanket. Room smelled moldy. We got our bags and put them back into the car. I went to the office and spoke with the front desk and informed them I was checking out and the reasons why I was checking out. There response was ok. No, gee I am really sorry there is a urine stain on the blanket, can we move you to a different room, can we refund your money, nothing. Went down the street and checked into the Holiday Inn. Plus of all this-After calling Hotwire they refunded 100% of my money. Hotwire also told me that on Mar 17 the hotel was downgraded. Rightly so!

I was so amazed at how friendly & helpful the front desk & housekeeping staff was. This is a discount hotel, with a great price, booked at last minutes , I feared what I would get when I arrived but WOW! I was pleased. The location was right downtown and parking was easy. I needed Ideas of what might be going on in town and I chatted with the clerk and they were oh so helpful. I would highly recomend it for your next stay in Williamsburg.
