I stayed here while visiting family and the room was very dated & not clean. They charge a very high rate for the quality of extended stay motel. The office staff are not very friendly, actually quit rude

Friendly staff and convenient driving distances to nearby attractions. Rooms are clean but this is a working man's hotel so if you are looking for extras like a pool and public sitting area you won't find it here.. There is a microwave in the room and tube type TV with an adequate number of channels.. . As I said this...

We chose this Inn because of it's location between where we wanted to shop and the Colonial Williamsburg area. The check in was great and the lady was very helpful and polite in answering our questions. The room was cozy - have been in larger rooms, but we were comfortable. We found the room to be neat, clean and comfortable....

If I could give a negative, I would. Please heed my warning and DO NOT stay here unless you REALLY don't care where you're staying or are super, super, super, super desperate. First of all, the name of the motel outside is "Williamsburg Outlet Mall Inn" and only says America's Best Value Inn on the inside of the office (which...

This hotel is horrible and scary! First let's begin with how the rooms smell, safes don't work, no hot water, pool was dirty and it was not safe!! We were a group of 6 so we had two room next to each other and a heavy set blonde woman and a man had a key card to our room and...

Walked into the lobby with cardboard propped up in the windows (after making reservation online) and its surroundings and got a major creepy feeling. Gentleman at the desk was equally unprofessional. We were given a room with soiled mattresses right next door and our room smelled of mold and smoke. Hotel not worthy of even 1 star. Manager would not...

I've been going to the motel now called the Williamsburg Outlet Mall Inn since 1984. It has had several name changes and changes in ownership (sometimes by international chains) and used to be a premier motel to the west of Williamsburg near the Williamsburg Pottery. It is now independently owned by an owner who cares little for visitor comforts. Although...

Absolutely disgusting!!! Stay the hell away!!! Not even Abobo could help this place. Roaches on the sink. Smashed roach on the mirror. Couldn't believe Hotwire sent us here. Floor stained in God only knows what. Hopefully it was just paint. Hair all over the tub. As I think more about this place, I get sick

Booked my trip through Hotwire. Hotel pictures looked nice. We got to the hotel, checked in, waited almost 5 min for someone to come check us in. No sign on the door when we arrived. Was given 1st room, room felt very damp, smelled weird, and wife ran into a spider web walking into room. We decided to turn on...

After checking in earlier tonight, I don't understand such the bad reviews. Yea it's not perfect but it's a decent price for a nights stay and its not $100 a night. Yes I read all the bad reviews and prepared for the worst but so far the room looks clean, not caked with dust, doesn't smell bad even in a...
