I have stayed at this Travelodge many times over the years and NEVER had any issues with the room or with the Manager. In fact, everytime I stay here I always get a hug. Room is always nice and clean and quiet. While the trains do run, if you have a problem with them then that's your issue not the...

My wife and I checked in late on a Friday night and only lasted an hour in this place even though we booked for 2 nights. The room was FILTHY: the sheets were dirty and ripped and had holes in them, they didn't even fit the mattress which was stained as well, and the comforter was ripped, too. There was...

Knew not to expect Ritz style for the price but it wasn't as bad as many have stated, at least not our room. What one must expect with this price however is less than ideal customer service and the car wash next door I do believe doubles as a drug dealing establishment. We stayed on the side neighboring said car...

OMG, what an experience! Booked reservations for this room online for just one night. Needed a cheap place to stay while visiting Busch Gardens. I guess you get what you pay for. However, $75 for a double is not some drop in the bucket to me! The experience got off to a bad start as I was told that they...

What a horrible experience!!! We booked a non-smoking room - it wreaked of a foul smoke odor upon entering da room - they gave us another room that was tolerable, just for us to discover after our shower that the beds were infested with BED BUGS!!!!! We immediately informed the front desk, called the booking agency to arrange a refund,...

We just wanted a one night quick get away, so we stayed here because of its location and the price you couldn't beat. Upon arrival I had to wait for someone to come to the front desk for about 5 to 8 minutes. I had made my reservations on hotels.com so he was not able to look me up due...

I had stayed at economy hotels before, so I knew not to expect much... But this was the worst experience I have ever had. We walked into our room and a cockroach ran across the floor. Turned around to lock the door and the lock was broken. Went to turn on the lights and one was out. Went to the...

The motel itself is small but you have all the necessities you need. Stopped by to plan a stay for a large group, and chose this motel for the second time in a few years. You will not find a cleaner place in Williamsburg! The manager is a kind man, and went out of his way to make sure we...
