Poor heat in room, never got comfortable. The shower hot water was not hot. ran warm initially but got colder as the shower progressed. Offered an exchange of rooms but was fully moved in and very late. Water heat did not improve in the AM.
We chose this hotel mainly for the price in the off season. We had a king bed room on the 8th floor. The room was clean and in good repair. It was not particularly large but it was plenty of space for the two of us. While our Room climate was fine, the first floor was freezing! The restaurant where breakfast was served was so cold we saw several other guests wearing heavy coats and our food cooled very quickly. Likely as a result of the arctic temperatures, there was never anyone present at the front desk when we went for check in, check out, or any other inquiries. There was also no bell for service or any other device to catch the attention of the staff so I waited close to five minutes before someone emerged from the office to check us in. The hotel itself is obviously an older hotel that has been updated In recent years. The lobby was decorated beautifully for Christmas. In all, I would consider staying here again if the price is right.
My wife and I wanted to do something special for our grandkids this past Christmas and we thought Christmas Town at Busch Gardens would be fantastic. We also felt that it would be nice to find an affordable hotel to spend the night instead of driving home. I decided to check this hotel out. Their off-season rates were very reasonable. I also asked if they allowed early check in which they gladly agreed to. Because one family had 5 members and the other family had 6 I requested roll-away beds. The day before our arrival, I called just to double-check and I was assured all would be in place. We arrived around noon and were checked in without a hitch. I was told at the front desk that the roll-away beds would be in place when we returned that evening. The whole family then went to Christmas Town and had a fantastic time. We stayed until the park closed. The hotel is only about a 5 minute drive from the park. We all settled in nicely. The morning buffet was great and made 7 kids happy. I then asked if we could use one of their conference rooms so we could exchange Christmas gifts. They gladly agreed. All in all, this was a trouble-free experience and I want to say how grateful I am to the staff who were so accommodating to me and my family.
Staff was nice and accommodating. Hotel was nice enough...lobby and rooms fully renovated, but the elevator, hallway, bathrooms and dining area are not. If you’re just looking for a place to lay your head, to do the Busch Gardens thing, this is nice enough. However, I wouldn’t plan a wedding here or anything. Could not get the PS4 hooked up to the tv and Internet was garbage, so that sucked, for my kid. For $59.99/night, this place was about right.
The hotel was ok, entrance was decorated beautifully for the holiday,check in was fast and easy and the person was very pleasant. However the room need some maintenance attention, our telephone was physically broken, water pooled on top of the window unit heater which I question if it was working properly. The breakfast was just ok, employees working it were great.
Once again used this hotel for family in the area for the holidays. Affordable, clean and beautiful Christmas decorations.
Location to the destination area was a plus. Hotel appearance is gloomy and outdated. Rooms could use an update. I picked up cigarette smell in the elevators and hallways.
I was happy to get such a great deal so close to Busch Gardens, but we quickly found out why it was so cheap. Not only was only one poor person working the entire hotel (Wednesday, off season, I get, but still - it took 4 hours to get more pillows), but there were many items that needed attention. The restaurant was also not open during the off-season, and the location right by the highway made for very noisy neighbors. The security hasp on the door was missing. Several tiles in the bathroom were broken to the point of sharp edges, and the plumbing in the shower was backward so the hot was on the right/blue side of the faucet and the cold was on the left/red side; and I had to kill a silverfish during my shower. The heater installed in the wall below the window had a serious draft beneath it so that whole side of the room was cold and the other side of the room got too hot when the heat was turned up enough to compensate. There was a sticky spot on the carpet in front of the TV. I was completely disappointed by this hotel under the Wyndham name.
Great hotel. We enjoyed the holiday decorations. The breakfast was outstanding (eggs, pancakes, bacon, and potatoes)! In the evening we ordered an appetizer (wings) and drinks and the wings were great. Service at restaurant and was great.
I was traveling with a group of 4 folks. We had a last minute travel arrangement to make and this hotel was closest to our destination in Williamsburg. The staff were friendly at check-in and there were no initial concerns. It is an old hotel so be prepared or a smell of chlorine from the pool imbedded into the hallway carpet. The room was fine, however the bathroom does have signs of age, especially the shower ceiling. One thing that seemed odd was that the phone in the room wasn't working. I went to the front desk to ask about the phone but they insisted it should be working. I had hoped they would have an early breakfast, however the breakfast didn't start until 7am, but my group an I had to be onsite at 7:15 to our place of work. In this instance, the hotel isn't close enough to town to find a breakfast joint at 6am. Perhaps it was the slow season for them, two weeks before Christmas, but overall the accommodations were fine.
