My two cousins and their families along with mine chose Williamsburg for our vacation this year. After driving from Chicago in 3 vehicles with 6 kids for 13 hours we finally made it there. Only to find out there was a power outage. The hotel we originally were scheduled to stay at, The Country Hearth Inn and Suites was blacked out. And from reading the review on that motel here , we were spared. Anyway the mgr of the Hearth, told us they had another motel in the city, the Captain John Smith Inn, that was not blacked out and they would call and see if they had rooms to accomodate us. Of course they did, and we got the rooms for $57 a night... cheaper than what we would have paid at the Hearth. Because I check Tripadvisor even before I make reservations, I knew that this motel didn't have sparkling reviews. So I told my cousins that, and asked that we check the rooms out first. We were showed one room, I immediately went to the bathroom and it was clean. The room was neat and ok in the first light. So we decided to stay, for 2 nights. Once we had checked in and had turned on all the lights, we could see that the carpeting needed a good shampooing and I would not let the kids walk around barefooted or play on the floors. They had a breakfast room, which my husband said was okay, but the manager was very indifferent when my husband pointed out that they had run out of something and he made no move to replenish it. My one cousin had a dirt ring in their toilet for those 2 nights and all of our carpets looked the same. Bottom line, it was tolerable for 2 nights, would not have stayed there any longer. Housekeeping came in, they did not make up the beds ,did not leave towels, and only emptied one garbage can, that's how I knew they were there. I wonder what they came in for. We couldn't get towels at night only in the day from housekeeping. I was just grateful not to wake up itching. It's true , you get what you pay for, almost.
