“Wonderful Stay. Not long enough.”
Reviewed 4 January 2012

I was really impressed with the cleanliness and service of this hotel considering the reasonable price. The free breakfast was more than continental with french toast and eggs. The staff was very friendly and location was perfect. I will definitely stay there again.

My wife and I spent four nights here--the price was very good with a great discount for booking three or more nights. The best thing about the motel is the location--it's convenient to both Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg. The rooms were also very clean--just in need of a remodel. When we arrived at 11:10 pm (I had called to let them know we were arriving late), the main doors were locked. A sign gave me a number to call to gain entry for check-in. After a short wait, the clerk opened the door and got us signed in, gave us directions, etc. I later found that the side entrances of the motel which are supposed to be accessible only with room keys could be entered by anyone anytime--yet the main entrance gets locked! During my check-in, the clerk refused to allow other guests to use the main entrance as an exit (she directed them to the side doors. I know this is a safe area, but if you're going to create a pretense of security, at least be consistent! Throughout my stay we never were provided enough towels and wash cloths, although we asked daily. I was never able to connect to the wireless internet--despite the valiant attempt by their IT specialist to assist me (I had no problem at my sister's motel across the street). The hot water was SOOO hot that it almost burnt me--not something I personally find to be a bad thing. Finally, the breakfast bar consisted of cereal and "make-your-own" waffles. A little more selection would have been appreciated. This is not a bad motel. The price was excellent--if they had delivered what was advertised, it would be a terrific bargain. In this case, too many problematic issues created a stay I don't want to repeat. I will look for another motel when I return to the area.

Room Tip: Check for their discount packages for multiple-night stays.

Good Morning,

I would like to apologize for the hotel not being to your liking. As our goal is to insure that our guest are 100% satisfied. We try to maintain 100% saftey for our guest which is why the front door is locked at 11, and both side doors are needed entry with a key. I would also like to apolgize for not having the proper amount of supplies in your room. I have spoken to the housekeeping department to make sure that the issue has been taken care of. We also have just changed our breakfast as of January 1, 2012 so we would like to invite you back for one more try if you would like. If you decide to try again, feel free to call me at 757-220-0080. I would like to thank you for the information you have giving us. So that way we can improve our hotel to meet the standards of our future guest.

Good, convenient hotel. Clean and really reasonable price. Close to Visitor's Center. Only room problem - water took a long time to get hot (4 to 5 minutes of full out running - really - no kidding). But, once it got hot it was very hot. Breakfast OK, not great - but who expects a free breakfast to be great? Good waffles, coffee, fruit, cereal, toast. Danish was a little Sam's Clubbish. All in all a great experience.
