Weekend Getaway

The whole hotel was hot. The a/c worked but did not cool down the room the entire trip. There was only one person who worked there and she was very rude.

Worked for most part.

The only complaint we have is that once we booked and arrived the hotel made us wait 20 minutes or more before the reservation showed up.

The complete package

It was clean and it was quiet and the air vent worked well to adjust the temperature. The towels were large and the lights all worked. What else do you need when travelling? I was satisfied and that made me pleased.

JUST AWFUL

This hotel is under new management, maybe this is why its so awful now. First,check in took forever. Second everything looked shabby, dirty, and like it needed a good dusting. The toilet and bathroom floor were stained. The carpet and drapes were frayed. The hot tub needs to be checked, the temp was definitely on the lower end which scared me so I got out for fear of contamination. There was no TV. The staff apologized for the inconvenience, but I've never been at a hotel that doesn't have television for you to watch. The complimentary breakfast was a joke! I will never, ever stay here again!

Greatest Bargain Ever!

For the money, this place is fabulous. The rooms are very classy and they remind you of a very historical Virginia experience. If you understand fine things, you will appreciate this place. I feel like the price is way too low for the services they provide.
