No frills, but not a problem!

You would have a hard time not noticing that The Tazewell Hotel is old. But what it lacks in modern... See full review

Very great stay. Comfortable, friendly.

This hotel is located around everything! There's a pub across the street and food so close by. It was very nice and felt very welcoming. The staff were all very nice and polite. I wish to stay here again soon. It was wonderful.

Tazewell of Norfolk

The Tazewell of Norfolk had friendly staff, much to their credit... The rooms were mediocre and the bathroom fixtures were broken/not maintainenced. There was no available parking, which was not indicated up front. Travelling in a Van, we found it difficult to secure parking and were forced to use the Mall Parking Garage and to pay the overnight fees that were included. From the Garage, we were forced to carry our own bags from the mall to the hotel - a few blocks walk. The 'complimentary' breakfast was even more dismal. Serving cold cereal, coffee, and English Muffins (the toaster was also not working)it was at least -something- after a night at an amazing concert.

Tazewell

Pleasant staff. Great location. Clean rooms. Rooms were not very fancy and neither was the hotel but it got the job done. Bring your laptop b/c the "business center" is just a small room with a computer that has shotty internet service. The mall is literally a 45 second walk from the hotel and the hotel is right smack downtown so you are surrounded by shopping and great places to eat.

Decent Stay

The hotel was easy to find, despite heavy construction in the Downtown Norfolk area. We were in town for a wedding and needed an early check-in and the hotel staff accommodated our request. The hotel is in the middle of downtown, which is great; however, the noise at night was a little much. The breakfast in the morning was nice, though there was not much seating.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

The hotel charges $15/day for parking in the city lot. If you are just planning on parking and leaving your car there over night, the garage only charges $5. Only buy the pass from the hotel if you plan on going in and out of the parking garage.

Good location for price

Smoking rooms need a better ventilation system. The room needed seating area to accommodate a couple.

Tazewell and Orbitz

Tazewell just shifted to Choice and none of the Orbitz reservations came through. I, and several others, had to wait to see if they had a room and if they had my price info. What a pain. Also, it says breakfast, but its not the one you get at the Mariott. I've seen better at Hampton Inn.

Not the best

Hotel was, at best, vastly over priced. Not a great value. No serious issues, just annoyances such as only one working elevator, over-worked staff, questionable cleanliness, old, dilapidated furnishings (the comforter was filled with cigarette burns) etc. This should not be acceptable at over $100/night. Sorry, this is Norfolk, VA... not a major vacation destination. The hotel was worth, at most, half that amount.

Mostly good

Great location near everything. It was great to be near Town Point park area and to be able to walk back and forth. Room was good - clean and well-appointed but noises from the street area really carried into our room. Hotel staff were great but Continental breakfast area needed to be monitored for food and beverage restocks and for cleanliness.
