Great location for shopping and visiting Colonial Williamsburg. Room was okay, staff was very accomodating and friendly. Bathroom could use a little attention. Did not change out the tolitries from the prior guest.

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.)

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.
