I went there as a last resort because all other hotels near Kings Dominion were booked. This one is right outside a trucker rest stop, so all kinds of unsavory characters are loitering outside. The grounds felt unbelievably unsafe, and the "arcade" was a tiny room full of stinky truckers smoking, playing x-rated touchscreen video games, and ogling my girlfriend.... More

We stayed here four days at the end of July 2009. The kids ages 11 & 14 like the outdoor pool. It's 9 feet deep and larger than your typical pool at motels now. It was sparkling clean, had nice tables and chairs surrounding it. The rooms however were so-so. Mine had a big spot on the carpet there the... More

The rooms were filthy, they had a bad odor, the vanity sinks wouldn't hold water,the shower knobs weren't working, light bulbs in the bathroom and rooms were blown, telephones weren't working,alarm clocks weren't plugged in, those are just a few problems with the rooms....

I chose the hotel due to its proximity to Kings Dominion, and the fact that I was only staying overnight. I arrived early and was abruptly told my room wasn't available and there was nowhere for me to store my bags (which I wasn't surprised at). When I returned around 8pm, the reception clerk took ages to locate my reservation.... More

I was in the area with my wife for a family reunion and visit to King's Dominion, and opted to stay here because of its location.
