1) The pillows were 'UNsatisfactory: too hard & filled with 'chunks of foam'... with no alternatives available in the room or from the hotel.

2) As with my first-stay (a year ago), there were numerous maint-items that needed attn/work. During both stays, it's the bathroom that consistently had the most problems... as in various items NOT being securely attached. It's as if there's NO regular preventive-maint done... unless/until a guest complains. And I just don't have the time to do THEIR job for them... nor should I have to. Also, the shampoo, bath, etc 'containers' are badly-designed... as they're too small & quite difficult to 'open/close'. Further, the bathroom-design was POOR at best... plus the "Handicap-Access" making bathroom-usage even more difficult. The sink-design was LOUSY as well... as you had to lean 'uncomfortably-forward' to utilize the sink to avoid making a mess. Further, the toilet-paper holders were both 'too low' & 'too far back' for easy use.

3) As for breakfast, it is more-than-adequate... with the single overriding problem I observed being that the 'food-stations' are too close, & the 'coffee-are' difficult to access by more than 1-2 people. Further, the 'garbage-container' is too small & difficult to identify. Also, there should be 'TWO' waffle-stations instead of 'one'... as the 'long-wait' for others can be annoying, particularly when a single-party wants to make multiple-waffles.

4) One last item: the elevators are SLOW almost-beyond all comprehension. Not exactly unexpectedly, the 'fire-stairs' are located at either end of the hotel... with the one-set of elevators located right in 'the middle'. Another set of stairs next-to the elevators would have been both useful & 'time-saving'.

In summary, I don't plan on staying there again. However, I must say that the 'sound-proofing' in the guest-rooms was EXCEPTIONAL... especially since our room was located immediately-beside the elevators. Also, the hotel-staff does a very-nice job... except for their seemingly-nonexistent 'room-maintenance program'.

Room Tip: The hotel is a little difficult to locate (& navigate to) when exiting Rte 95. However, the inte...

Stayed here after Kings Dominion and on our way to NYC. No free breakfast but ample parking. The rooms were nice but limited food nearby. You have to back to exit 130 to find all the eating places, but not too far. The rooms are very nice but the "special" bed did not work, but still comfy.
Overall for the price I would say alright but definitely not great.

My wedding party stayed at this hotel location. I would not recommend anyone planning a event to contact the group coordinator. If you need assistance, the hotel manager is a very nice lady that will assist you. She believes in customer service. The manager is a star*** The coordinator has selective memory, unprofessional and may screw up your important day and not care one way or the other. All in all the rooms are nice, the front desk staff is ok after they find out they don't have to kick you out. Recommend customer service training. Not all staff, one guy was very nice and acommodating.

Everything was above average! Indoor pool was nice too. Only complaint was the print room was always out of paper.
