The staff are super friendly and willing to help any way they can. The room is a good size, not spectacular looking, but it is clean. It's also close to so much around and close to highway. Would definitely stay here again.

We got a room for a week, for my birthday. The room was large, apparently not the norm. I didn't like that we couldn't open the windows because they don't have screens for them, and the ac is loud. But, we bought screen and masking tape and fixed that. The folks were very nice at check in. We were able... More

Enjoyed our two night stay at this hotel. Great location. Close to downtown Richmond, historical attractions and restaurants. The hotel had a look of a bygone era. The rooms were very comfortable. Would stay at this hotel again. Loved the hot breakfasts.
