Old and needs lots of work

Hotel staff was nice but this building is dilapidated and dirty. I can easily see someone canceling after looking at the condition of this establishment. Needs a total restoration. Bathroom is put together ramshackle style, with band-aid fixes put on things to hide the fact that it is old. Once again, the staff was nice. But the building was just very very sketchy.

Needs MORE Than That Special Something

For under $50/night, you get what you pay for: Bath Towels are rough on the skin. Had to ask for Facial Tissue. The pool is worn out and looks dirty. The A/C seems to need filter cleaned. Queens beds for O.K. Don't count on the "complimentary breakfast." Had to request for a "Do Not Disturb" sign. Available Iron but no Iron Board. Plenty ice available. Very conveniently located near shops, restaurants, attractions, etc. Very pleasant Manager.

Horrendous

The stay was subpar compared to other hotels that I have stayed. To start off, I booked the hotel online, and it was one of the cheaper options that fit in my budget. Upon arrival, the lobby smelled of stale smoke, and I was told that pets are not allowed, which is one of the reasons why I booked at that location since I have mild allergies. However, I noticed several patrons walking their pets in the lobby, and several rooms had cats on the window seal. In addition, the room was not adequately cleaned, the telephone did not work, the toilet did not flush. The property was inhabited by questionable patrons, making me feel unsafe to travel to the front desk to file a complaint. Also, the website advertised free wi-fi which was not working. The property is uninhabitable, and it is a same that their franchise has not been revoked yet. I highly do not recommend staying here.

Vacaton

Everyone was very nice! The room was great for the money! Only thing I could say is that the grounds outside could be kept a little neater. There was trash around the side entrance in the shrubs.

There is the best Golden Corral located next to this Motel 8! It is two blocks behind it. Also there is a Food Lion across the street.

You get what you pay for...

We only stayed at this hotel because of the location and price. The sheets didn't fit the bed. The bed itself is one of the most uncomfortable beds I've ever slept in. The entire hotel reeked of smoke. The front door that normally requires you to swipe your room key card to get in was broken all night so anyone could have walked in. If you can stay elsewhere, I would.

Williamsburg

I thought I had walked into the wrong hotel at first! This hotel was awful It smelled like smoke the min you walked in the door and was filthy. The floors were falling apart and the pool was lime green. I didnt dare even go to look at the breakfast room. I didnt want to even check in and considered leaving the second I arrived. If I did not have someone with me tugging me along I would have. The room was no better than the entrance! I specifically requested a non smoking room. The attendant placed me in a smoking room anyway. When we entered the room we found that it had not been cleaned there was ash everywhere and the smell was unbearable. The attendant was beyond huffy when I went back to change rooms. The second room was not near as bad but not nice enough to give compliment. Someone had urinated in the elevator which we discovered on the way to the third floor. Noone had cleaned it up by the time we checked out. Overall this was by far the worst I have ever seen. This hotel was disgusting!! I am so glad I had brought my own pillows and that this was only a very short stay. I am dissappointed in orbitz for even listing this hotel! It should be taken off! We had a blast at bush gardens and was glad to be out all day! The outlets were lovely as well. I dont recommend trying to have dinner in the local tavern near the collage they are definitely geared for obnoxious college kids. Breakfast at the Gazebo; a local favorite was wonderfull! Great food and great people! It was a couples weekend and the hotel put a damper on that. The attractions are where we spent most of our time, that made up for it... We made the best out of a bad situation but we should not have had to!

hotel sucks

Don't stay here! When we arrived I was not expecting much but more than this. First off there was no soap or shampoo sample packets which I thought that was standard of any hotel. Bed was stiff as a board and did not get any sleep whatsoever. The phone to call room service didn't even work. It was a Radisson hotel phone guess just there for looks?!? The room was non-smoking and smelled like an ashtray. They had a coffee maker sitting in the room with no coffee. I needed a cot for the room and was charged $10. I would only recommend this hotel if you absolutely have nowhere else to go and need to stay in a half-way home because thats about all its good for. They need to tear it down and THEY say it was recently renovated which is garbage. I can't imagine what it looked like before!

Disappointed

Even though this hotel is only rate as a two star hotel and one cannot expect the Ritz, the pool was unswimmable because of debris, and the Centennial Breakfast was vertically nonexistent. The pool looked as if it had not been cleaned for the season and yet our stay was in mid-July! Also, the general first impression that the guess gets can be greatly improved by replacing the badly worn and soiled carpets.
