Good price, good location, good service

The location of this hotel is very convenient for all of the attractions in the Historic Triangle. Additionally, the service at the front desk was commendable. The room, while relatively small, was clean and the hotel, while full, was not noisy.

Not good at all

The AC wasn't working very well. It was hot and we check out a day early. We will never go back there.

Nice place to stay in Williamsburg Area"

The Location is just 6 miles drive to Busch Garden , 5 miles to Water Country USA, And 3-4 miles in Colonial Williamsburg. Pretty nice to stay with a family of four 2 double beds, with a big room. This place might i say the best i ever stayed for 4 days. Planning to go back next year. Everything is available from mini ref,microwave and nice aircondition. Before i forgot they have continental breakfast to start the morning with energy.With additional Indoor pool and GYM area.!

Nice clean hotel.

The hotel was clean and amenities were acceptable. Continental breakfast was good. Housekeeping could have been be better. Some supplies used were not replaced and our door was not completely closed after housekeeping left leaving the room unlocked for a period of time. Thankfully, nothing happened because of this. Other than that, our stay was pleasant. I would stay here again.

I enjoyed the Hotel - very clean

We went to Colonial Williamsburg - Jamestown Settlement - we wanted to go to Yorktown but that closed too early - we were going to go to Busch Gardens - but that looked to be too expensive - enjoyed the sight seeing and History.

Everything you wanted to go to was a drive away - Colonial Williamsburg is very nice, but you will do a lot of walking there.

Fun Trip with the family

We went to visit the historical Williamsburg area and also travel to Virginia Beach and Cape Henry. It is a beautiful area that has a small town feel but plenty to see and do. I have traveled a few times before and have always enjoyed area.

NOT BAD

This is more like a $69 a night hotel then the $104 a night I spent. Breakfast okay. The towels were kept on a wood shelf underneath the sink. The shelf had a inch of dust on it and towards the back the pipe had leak on the shelf. Rug needed to be clean it smelt like the pool. Business room LOL. two computers only one hook up to the printer and no microsoft word. BUT the staff is fantastic
