Walking distant to Williamsburg Colonial and their downtown big plus one hour drive to Virginia Beach and Richmond! Hot tub plus pool with shower! Shanicka was great front desk help. Close to everything Jamestown and the bay plus ocean!

Ok in there defense they are going through a major renovation Wait until they are done. The place is not worth your time. The room was poor at best. Beds are so bad. The room was not even that clean. No bar no lobby no food. Go somewhere else.

We attended a state-wide meeting of a fraternal group at this hotel. The hotel is in the middle of major renovations which reportedly were to be completed prior to this meeting. The registration desk was in a makeshift room...not at all welcoming. We had reserved a king bed room(months earlier) and were told there were none available. Our room had...

This place makes your average Motel-6 look like a Hyatt Regency, and rates a -50 on a 1-10 scale, across the board. Basics: Ice machines are turned off on the active floor wings; housekeeping is an absolute joke. Went back to my room at 2:30pm - untouched. Called the front desk, they did send a person up. Her idea of...

Another convention and a disappointing venue although great location for tourists. It had been 3 years since our last visit to this tired old hotel, granted they had trouble with the contractor but it shouldn't be our problem! Under renovation was an understatement. Our room faced west, a suite no less, a few nice touches, i.e. lighted magnifying mirror and...

This hotel shows 3 stars, I don't write reviews no matter how the hotels are, we've been to Hilton, Marriott to super 8 and this is far the worst hotel we ever been and that I needed to write a review.

This hotel shows 3 stars. After staying for 2 nights April 12 and 13, I would give it 2 stars. I avoid 2 star hotels.

Our tour was set up to stop here for dinner. Went into one of the ballrooms and we were served a nice buffet style pasta meal ...was nice to actually have silverware, plates and glasses… When touring with the school group we are on a budget. Employees we encounter were very pleasant and patient dealing with all of our kids.

We had another wonderful long weekend here from beginning to end. Check-in was pleasant and information shared about local places to eat since the restaurant is currently under renovation and not available.

The only reason to rate it as high as I did was the friendliness of the staff. The place is under construction and quite a mess. The lobby, bar and restaurant were closed off.
