Stayed as [art of a vacation package with Busch Gardens. Room OK, bed OK, Bath OK. Main problem was lack of welcome from the staff and guests gathering on our floor at all hours. The noise from the gatherings kept us awake until 1am both nights. Breakfast was OK day 1 (we were early) but day 2 nothing left by 8.30am. Wouldn't choose here again.

Hotel's Favourite
The staff at the front desk were friendly and welcoming every time we spoke to them. I asked for extra packets of coffee for the last day (I needed more than decaf), and the clerk set them aside for me to pick up when I came back that day. Every employee we passed in the halls gave us a cheerful greeting. The room was comfortable and roomy for my son (age 18) and I. There was a nice desk and quite a few places to plug in electronics to charge (in the desk itself, in the lamps). The beds were firm. I cannot comment on the pillows, because I brought my own, but my son said they were uncomfortable (our only complaint). There was a mini-fridge and microwave in the room, and the air-conditioner worked well. There was good hot water in the shower and the water pressure was excellent. My favorite part of the room was the size of the bathtub...I'm a bit wide in the hips and had more than enough room to soak in the tub. My son was happy to see a hot tub and pool. He enjoyed the pool, however, he said he could not stay in the hot tub because the chemicals were so strong they stung his eyes. We did not take advantage of the few breakfast options. I understand that during COVID options are limited, but some fresh fruit would have been nice. The location was amazing, five minutes from Colonial Williamsburg and about five minutes from a variety of restaurants.

Great for $80/ night. Mostly clean and secure. We were 2 weeknights and had no issues. Breakfast was a frenzy with everyone jamming in to get free food. Not fun but for the price it was fine. Staff was nice and location great for access to attractions.

The hotel was clean. The room was clean. The sheets were clean. The pool and hot tub were relaxing. The hotel staff was very polite and accommodating. The area was in a good location. The parking had great lighting and we all felt safe and we checked in.

Nice place. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very organized and well supplied which saved us money. TV remote was hard to use. Lots of places close by. Overall very nice and would go back.

Stayed 4 nights for trip to Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg. No housekeeping due to Covid...STILL?! Each night we had to gather up trash, collect wet towels and throw them outside our room. Had to get clean or new amenities from the front desk, who were rude and annoyed each time. I asked for some towels, and she said "Some towels, what is some towels? I told her how many, then asked for some plastic cups and she said "I don't have any here, go get them over there [pointing to coffee area]" Older gentlemen at breakfast area was always in a horrible mood. No towels in pool area, but did not want to ask any more than we had to so just didn't bother. Just unbelievably and incredibly rude staff all around. Room dated and pillows totally uncomfortable. Will never return.

Rooms were very clean and spacious. Asked for a complimentary toothbrush at the front desk and the desk clerk said they were out of them--really?? The complimentary breakfast was okay. I wish they would have had some bacon and better variety of pastries.

JUNE 2022 - Got a good deal on this hotel and had lowered my expectations based on the many reviews I read. Definitely some mixed feelings on this one. - Rooms clean overall but old. Ours had an old smoke stench (didn't seem recent, maybe just built up from years). Sheets were clean, room was good size, microwave/refrigerator - everything seemed to be in working order but you can tell the age. - When they had food, breakfast was pretty good for free - They had one pastry (usually a muffin or sweet roll), apples/oranges, prepackaged oatmeal, and 3 'hot' trays which usually had eggs, either bacon or sausage, and either waffles, pancakes or french toast sticks. Food, when it was there, was pretty good tasting BUT they where CONSTANTLY running out of food. Lines were long and by the time you got to the hot food, not uncommon to have 2 of the 3 pans empty and sometimes the wait was 10-20 minutes to get the next batch of food. I don't know how much of the food they actually make there vs bring it prepackaged - the waffles seemed prepackaged. At one point they brought out an entire bowl of frozen jimmy dean sausage and egg biscuits and there was a long wait for the microwave to even make them edible. All that said, the taste of the food was not bad, but you WILL get frustrated during breakfast. - Lobby where breakfast is located is very nice and updated - Indoor Pool was okay - open long hours from 9am to 11pm, a bit steamy in there as could be expected and usually more crowded in the evenings. There are a couple of arcade games and vending machines before you enter the pool area. - Hotel is right across the street from Ollie's (store) if you need to grab any cheap stuff, and within walking distance to Pirate's Cove Golf course *if* you are willing to cross a relatively busy road (suggest driving just to be safe). - They don't clean the rooms when you stay "due to covid" but I think that's just an excuse to cut down on costs and I think if you stay 5 days or more they will change sheets if you ask them to. - Lots of families and at least 1 bus here, so can get a little noisy in the halls but think this is typical of a vacation town. Would I stay here again? Probably based on price. But you do get what you pay for so don't expect a $200 hotel when you're only paying $100.

For one night on the way to the beach this hotel was ok. I wouldn't want to be there any longer. The room was about the size of the bed. With the crib added we had to have ( the only) chair removed to be able to move. We had to ask 3 times for the crib, and breakfast was 40 people, many with kids, and only one high chair, asking a single overworked young woman if there were more eggs, more butter, more oj, etc. It is a convenient walk into colonial Williamsburg, however, so I'll give it that.

Wheelchair accessible room was not wheelchair accessible. - room size is too small -- too much furniture & too large of a bed for that room to be for a wheelchair user - bed too tall - remove coffee table in front of sofa - grab bars in bathroom are not placed in proper location to be helpful next to toilet or in shower - remove sides on shower chair so individual can transfer safely & sink is too close to transfer safely -- suggest roll in shower - cannot reach heating/ac controls because table is in the way - cannot reach anything on top of tv/microwave area - need lower sink & lower mirror -- couldn't fix my hair because I couldn't see the mirror
