An unpleasant experience
The price and convenience
The lack of cleanliness and rudeness of staff
Everything we needed!
Everything was neat and tidy. Staff was friendly and helpful. Comfy beds. Good night's sleep and nice breakfast in the morning as well. Already made reservations to stay again.
A Terrible Value
The only characteristic that I found enjoyable of the place was when I was not staying there. It is located within a reasonable distance to Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg.
Where to begin? The key cards de-magnetized at the slightest handling. The beds were so terrible that I actually slept on the floor. I could feel every spring in their crappy mattresses and could not get a wink of sleep. The ceiling of our room looked like there had been multiple water damage instances involving a leaky roof. The room smelled musty. It was only one step above "Crack den". The breakfast was terrible. The eggs were probably powdered and tasted worse than the eggs they serve in the Navy (and in prisons). The potatoes tasted like cardboard. They should just skip those and stick to toast and bacon. The cost of this room was $285 (including tax). When I pay that much money for two nights, I expect to at least enjoy my bed. I would not recommend this place to ANYONE except a crackhead.
We won't be staying here again
The coffee and breakfast were good.
The employees at the front desk were incredibly rude. When we checked in, one of our sheets was dirty and when we called the front desk about it, the woman working told us we could come get a new sheet if we wanted to, but didn't offer to come re-make the bed for us. The mattresses are extremely hard and uncomfortable. The fitness center was very limited and two of the machines didn't work at all.
Location Comfortable Beds Indoor Pool Cleanliness of Rooms Good value for the price
Breakfast could use improvement - Eggs tasted fake and weird toasters took way too long - 2 rounds and English muffin was still barely warm, not dark at all seating for breakfast - chairs too big, bulky and heavy. almost impossible for person sitting against the wall to get out. chairs in guest room were very uncomfortable.
Convenient to Williamsburg
Location, fresh baked cookies.
Very nice hotel with no problems with the room and/or staff
The coffee machine produced probably the worst coffee I have had in recent times.
Affordable, in a safe area. Staff was friendly and responsive to requests. Breakfast was decent. A good option when the higher end hotel chains jack up prices over the weekend. Large indoor pool.
Carpet was old and worn down. Needed to be vacuumed under the beds. Description was misleading, said "1 BR with a pullout sofa. " definitely expected an actual separated BR, not the case.
