You get what you pay for. We were looking for an inexpensive hotel for an impromptu weekend away. This was convenient to colonial Williamsburg. Room is small, needs updating, isn’t sparkling clean - but serves the purpose of a place to sleep. No need to spend time in the hotel. Owner was friendly.

Some good deals like this one should be tossed back in the sea. I was taking my niece to Busch Gardens for what should have been a day trip, but plans changed and we found what we thought was a good deal on a room. Looks are deceiving! It looks kinda cozy, homelike from the outside, but is very much dated and is in need of a deep clean and maintenance. Had to switch rooms upon checkin due to dirt being in the bed and there was a nasty looking suspicious white stain on the floor beside the bed, one can only imagine. The second room definitely smelled better/cleaner thankfully, but was still outdated, dirty in places, rusted, which you can see in the pictures. A more concerning note, the plug to the lamp didn't look safe at all, looks like a fire hazard (plug coming apart). We didn't have hot water until calling and having someone come to fix the issue. After the hot water came in, nasty brown water came out of the faucet then turned cloudy. I'll add as well that the bathroom window (pictured) with thin curtains faces a restaurant (you can see people eating); I felt self conscious taking a shower, hoping that no one saw me. If you do decide to stay or have to, make sure that you take cleaning supplies with you for your own comfort. I regretted not booking one of the other hotels nearby that might've been a tad bit more, it would've been worth it. Upside was that the young lady who checked us in was friendly.

I checked out the available rooms and prices on the internet and found this motel to meet our needs. I enjoyed the stay and recommend staying here. The manager Hamen handled the booking and confirmation well and when we arrived he was very professional and prompt. The room hostess Gloria was very kind and went out of her way to assist us from extra towels and toiletries. Gloria deserves five stars and is an strong asset to this motel.

This hotel is a family run hotel. And i would not recomend this hotel to anyone. My observation was the room and property were old and not up to date. And the bed mattress were badly stained with yellow circles.

Positives: Staff was very friendly and check in was a breeze. The pool looked nice and spacious although my husband and I did not use it and it looked like it got clean multiples times a day. The location was close to all the attractions and lots of restaurants. The room was clean and for what you pay is a decent size. There is a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker in the room. The TV was good quality with a wide range of channels to pick from. Water pressure in the shower was pretty good and water stayed warm. The bed sheets and pillows were nice and clean Negatives: For some reason this hotel does not give you toiletries ( mini shampoo, soap, etc.) which is not a big deal as you can bring them with you or make a quick run to the store. The bed is very hard and rather uncomfortable (which isn’t uncommon in a hotel). The building is right by the train tracks and you can hear the trains going by through out the night (about 3-4 of them) so if you aren’t a very deep sleeper this will be an issue. The WiFi in the room works but it goes in and out a lot. The safe in our room didn’t work. Housekeeping does not come everyday and towels are not changed out. The exterior of the hotel is run down and can make you feel a little uneasy. Although the website said there is breakfast offered in the lobby daily my husband and I never actually saw it. Not sure if we went too early, too late, or they just don’t offer it anymore. Overall I believe we would stay here again. Update: The A.C. in our room broke on our last night here, we didn’t bother to ask for it to be fixed since we were leaving in the morning. It did make for a miserable night after many attempts of turning it back on and off, switching it from low to high, and vise versa we gave up.
