Chose this hotel because we read there were recent renovations and they offered a hot breakfast. Neither was true. Hotel has not been updated and much about this property doesn't work. Rented two rooms for a family vacation. Checked in after a long drive to find the bathroom door barely shut in one room and the ac didn't work in the other. After taking a shower in the first room and finding the tub didn't drain, we went to the front desk and was handed a plunger to fix the tub ourselves! When that didn't work, they did accommodate us and move us a few doors down. Those rooms were slightly better but the bathroom door didn't shut in one and the toilet barely flushed in the other. Found several bugs in both rooms and just stuck it out for the few days we were staying. Breakfast consisted of stale cereal and a very used waffle maker that had no spray to ease the removal of the waffle. There was also stale white bread and powdered donuts. The milk was empty the one day with no one around to refill it and the juice was not real orange juice. The coffee wasn't terrible. The pool was clean and refreshing the two nights we got into it. Check out is at 11 but apparently they require you check out prior to that as housekeeping was banging on both doors and screaming at us at 10:50 that we were supposed to be gone already! Price was right for a family of 6 needing 2 rooms but would never stay here again! Wish I could give it 1/4 star.

I selected this property for a simple reason. The price was cheap, and it was near the airport. Perfect combo before an early morning flight. Obviously you can’t expect the world from an affordable motel, and going in with realistic expectations, I walked away with mixed feelings. Details below:

Check in/Service: No major issues. The lobby is large, a little dingy, and the security glass around the front desk was obviously an afterthought (hopefully not out of necessity). But the check in experience was efficient and the service friendly.

Grounds/Facility: Reasonably well maintained for a budget hotel… at least for the most part. The exterior corridors were clean, the landscaping decent, and the few amenities I used (ice maker, vending, etc) all worked without issue. Due to my early morning departure, I didn’t try the breakfast. The location of this property makes it extremely convenient for use as an airport hotel since the airport driveway is just a few doors down. And yet somehow, there's really no noise from aircraft.

Room: It appears the property (at least some rooms) went through a light renovation since the promotional photos were taken. The bedding, paint, bathroom flooring and TV all appeared newer. Overall, it was actually nicer than I expected from the reviews and low pricepoint.

*The good*
-Very comfortable, newer bed linens. The sheets were nice and soft, the comforter/duvet cover smelled fresh and were nice and warm, and the whole bed was actually quite cozy. The mattress also looked newer and was quite nice.
-Bathroom was a little vintage, but in great condition. No moldy grout/caulking, great water pressure, and spotlessly clean.

*The bad*
-Chairs were all a bit dirty
-Desk legs and area below mini fridge were very dirty

Overall, there’s room for improvement, but not bad for a hotel of this class. A comfortable bed and nice shower goes a long way, and this room provides both. I’m a little mixed on recommending this place, but if you’re looking for a deal and can put up with things being less than perfect, it will probably work fine for you just as it did for me.

Stayed overnight after the Nascar race in Richmond. Room was clean, a/c worked and we had hot water. It is obvious the motel needs major updates, but for a place to sleep for 6 hours, this worked and the price was right.

My dad and I stayed overnight after the RIR NASCAR race. We essentially checked in, went to the race, got back at midnight, and slept at the hotel for 6 hours. So, pretty basic needs.

We were satisfied with the hotel. The room was clean, the AC cold, the fridge worked, etc... There's no way to deny that the building and the rooms have seen some hard times, but I think the staff is doing the best with what they have to work with. We arrived a half hour early and were allowed the check in early, which was nice.

This isn't exactly the lap of luxury, but it worked for us. It's one of the more reasonable hotels around and when just spending one night, (or even a few hours) we couldn't see spending two or three times more money at a more expensive hotel.
