Decent Place in a great location

Stayed here over Halloween weekend 2011 with friends. If you want to visit Busch Gardens/Williamsburg and your looking to spend your money at the park/shops, come here. It's got what most travelers need: clean rooms, decent amentities - freewifi/free parking/cable/indoor pool/hot tub/ free breakfast, and good/helpful staff, This is your place. If you need a deluxe suite with marble bathrooms, stylishly appointed bedroom with linens, lace, picturesque views, room service, a hotel bar, yadda yadda yadda... don't come here. I'd stay here again. It was close to BG, Williamsburg outlets, Captain George's seafood restuarant and a number of waffle houses. (side note: receptionist alexis was super cute and very nice.)

Good location,Good prices

We went on this trip to visit Williamsburg, Busch Gardens and the Winery had a great time. The hotel rooms were fine, the down button on the elevator didn't work while we were there and the front desk knew about it. They need more fruit and yogurt for breakfast. The computers were very slow.

Best kept secret

I have stayed in many hotels in the 30 years I have been traveling to Williamsburg and I have never had a better value for the money. It will be my "go-to" hotel from now on. Reasonble rates, clean rooms, coffee in the rooms and free breakfast. Did I mention reasonable rates? After searching the web I found the rates to be CHEAP!!! And it wasn't a one-star hotel. I give it four stars!!!

Satisfying for the Price

We had a group of 8 guys for a bachelor party, and the hotel met our needs for a cheap price. It was nice to have a free breakfast and access to a pool, along with a good room in a good location. There was plenty of parking, as well. Only complaints are that the beds were pretty hard and the 'hot breakfast' only included one hot item: waffles, made by one of the members of the hotel staff.
