Rooms with kitchen are huge. Table and 2 chairs,full size fridge,dishwasher,microwave and stove with pots and pans. Breakfast served 6-9 which we didn't use. Recommend Capital Pancake House next door. Indoor heated pool was nice although actual room was cold. Would stay here again.Saw very negative reviews earlier but we didn't have any problems sleeping here for 3 nights for...

If you would like to sleep in a bed containing pubic hair and old food, this is the place for you! I am quite positive the bed was drug out of a dumpster somewhere and thrown onto a pile of bricks. In my opinion, the location of this hotel isn't a safe area for children. The front desk clerk was...

It started at check-in... very unfriendly women behind the counter. We seemed to be disturbing her. Barely spoke to us and didn't look us in the eye. Elevator not convenient... Hard time finding the elevator at all. At the opposite end of the front desk. The room... beds were extremely uncomfortable and the room was not updated. Looked old. The...

Super courteous and helpful management and staff. The room had a full size fridge and cooking facilities. Continental breakfast was a nice way to start the day and the pool that was great to relax and unwind in after golf. The location was perfect to access area golf courses and very close to Colonial Williamsburg. There were also excellent restaurants...

Don't be swayed by the decent photos of this hotel on the web site. Bathrooms have mold and mildew, towels were not clean (hair), and the building smelled old and dirty. Manager did not return a call to us after complaining on day of check-in, check-out, or day after. I called Choice Hotels Guests Relations to express my dissatisfaction with...

We stayed in this hotel for 1 night for our weekend family trip to Jamestown Settlement. Overall our experience was OK. Ill start with the good: price was very affordable. Room was spacious. You get your own kitchen so you can cook if you like to save some money. Very close to restaurants, convenience stores and prime outlets. Hotel was...

We specifically selected this hotel as we were traveling with our small dog. What a mistake! We have made multiple trips to the Williamsburg/Newport News area in the last six months as our son was going through AIT at Fort Eustis and have stayed in some very nice places. This place was horrendous. Huge roach on the kitchen floor, filthy...

My husband and I visited Williamsburg for a bowling tournament, stayed at this hotel. We have no complaints, the rooms were clean, the staff was friendly and we absolutely loved the full kitchenette!! If I have to give a complaint it would be that the bed was a bit hard for my liking, (My husband had no problems with it)...

This hotel needs a lot of work. My room was dirty and unkept. I saw a Roach in the middle of the night as I went in the bathroom. The breakfast was subpar. The eggs were horrendous and a poor excuse even for powdered. Twice my key didn't work at the outside door and I had to walk all the...
