Good Hotel, evn if a bit gently worn

It is a nice location with good staff. We did notice a lot of minor cleanliness and order issues. Damage to furnishings not repaired. The overall value was good due to a 3rd party booking discount. A minor investment in refurbishment would likely yield a much better guest experience here.

Over all Happy with stay

The Good- Staff was great, breakfast bar was always filled even when busy on weekends. The Bed was ok, slept on better and worse when staying at a hotel. Pool area was nice. Great location if going to williamsburg/busch gardens alot to do around the area and close to both attractions. The Bad- Room had a weird smell and carpets were pretty dirty like they needed shampooed, No Fan in the bathroom?!?!, Jacuzzi only worked partially. Overall would stay again for the right price.

Good night sleep and very clean.

The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The only bad thing is no cell phone reception.

Hits it out of the park for family value!

If you are planning a trip to colonial Williamsburg with the kids this is a super place to stay. Not the newest or most modern place I've ever been to but the rooms were very well appointed and very clean, bathrooms look updated. The grounds are well kept and the pool/hot tub was a lot of fun for the kids. The breakfast that is included was better than most restaurants you will go to, full hot breakfast and very well laid out. The staff is terrific, the assistant manager Bill was right on top of everything and working hard to make sure guests were happy. All the staff seemed really friendly and the location is so close to the enterence to Willismsburg and to the restaurants, mini golf, shopping outlets, etc on Bypass Road. Highly recommended by my family!
