Homewood Suites Richmond Airport
Ranked #4 of 15 Hotels in Sandston
Reviewed 23 September 2011

Stayed 3 nights here on business travel. Staff was friendly and helpful. Seems a bit older than some, but overall the same set-up as most in the Homewood brand. Convenient to the airport, highways, plenty of parking, next to Uno's Restaurant, but no restaurant in the building. Breakfast was standard complimentary buffet-grade eggs, potatoes, breads, meats. Cold cereal, yogurt and some fruit available as well. Give the coffee a miss though, tastes like that just-add water brown concentrate. Evenings include a free light meal which varies by day in the lobby area. Main complaint is with the location of the pool/fitness area and access to it, which requires a walk through the lobby/dining area...not so nice in your sweaty/wet duds. There is also an outdoor basketball court beyond it, which I discovered on being kept up late by a few game playing guests. Room was fair sized, not large. Only other gripe was the satin-slick duvet which was either sliding off the end of the bed, its filling sagging out the bottom, or waking you from being under its non-breathable fabric in a ferocious sweat. Overall impression was good, basic, clean place to stay and I would recommend it to those with families in tow, or for any extended stay on a budget.

During a recent trip to Myrtle Beach which we drove from Canada, we booked a night at the hotel on our way down in a 1 bedroom suite. The Price was hard to beat and the room/service provided well exceeded what we expected that we stayed here again on our return trip home.

The hotel is near the airport and easy to access from the main highways. There is a bit of a drive from the interstates but just follow the directions to the airport and it is not hard to find the hotel. While you could hear some noise from the airport near by it was still quiet and easy to sleep in the room.

The building, grounds, lobby and room are all very lovely. The staff was friendly and welcoming both times we stayed here and this is a big plus for me when staying at hotels. The Breakfast area offers plenty of seating and has a nice selection of hot and cold choices so everyone should be able to find something to have in the morning.

The 1 bedroom unit seemed to be a standard layout for Homewood Suites, a kitchen area and breakfast nook inside the door with a living area that had a pull out couch and TV plus work desk. Then a seperate sleeping area with double doors to allow privacy from the living room with a sink area off the bedroom open to the bedroom. The door to the bathroom was off the bedroom and offered the basics of flush and shower/tub.

The beds are very very comfortable and provide an excellent night sleep. The TV's in both the bedroom and livingroom allow you the choice of watching TV at night on the couch or in bed while falling asleep.

There is a Uno Chicago Grill off the parking lot by the front door which is great so you don't have to drive somewhere to find a good place to eat which is nice if you've been traveling all day.

The staff and rooms would ensure this place is top choice next time I need a place while driving to South Carolina for our next golf trip. Maybe next time I'll try to schedule an extra night at this place so I can sample to local golfing the area may offer.

This is an older Homewood suite but completely adequate, not luxurious. Stayed here for almost a month in process of relocation for education. The staff was helpful and the location, price, and accommodations worked out well. We would stay here again and recommend it.

Traveled with a group of baseball boys this weekend. Hotel was incredibly accommodating. Pool was great, basketball area plus grills and tables outside made this the a perfect option for us. Rooms are spacious and clean. We only had one parent of our group have a small issue with their room (shower not working) and they were immediately provided a new room with no fuss.

We recently had a two-night stay here at the Homewood Suites Richmond Airport and it was better than we hoped for.

We had a large one-bedroom suite consisting of a kitchen with full-size refrigerator, small stovetop, microwave, dishwasher, and dining area; a living area with sofa bed, work desk, and flat-screen tv; and large bedroom with king bed, tv, vanity area, closet, and bathroom.

We used the hotel when visiting Richmond for a NASCAR race. This hotel is very convenient to Richmond Raceway. Just hop on I-64 and Laburnum, the Speedway exit, is the next exit to the East. After the race, we were back to the hotel about 20 minutes after exiting the parking lot.

We enjoyed the hotel's complimentary full breakfast both mornings of our stay, and were happy that breakfast lasted until 10am. (A hotel pet peeve is breakfast that closes earlier). Included were hot eggs and a hot meat each day, waffles, assorted breakfast breads, cereals and oatmeals, fresh fruit, yogurt, three different coffees, and a variety of teas.

We enjoyed the hotel's indoor pool, but the whirlpool spa temperature was too warm; we lasted just five minutes there. There's a small exercise room, too, plus a small basketball court and patio area with gas grills for guest use.

The hotel provides Neutrogena bathroom amenities (shampoo, two types of soap, conditioner, and lotion). Unfortunately, they did not agree with my skin. I found all of the items to be too harsh and drying. If you have sensitive skin, bring your own products.

I did use the workspace for my laptop and other electronics. I found the desk height to be too tall to use comfortably for long periods. The desk is less of a computer desk and more of a writing desk. There were several power outlets in the room (thanks to it being a suite), but thought there could be an additional outlet near the work area. (Hey hotels, put an outlet strip above the desk, OK? That would be great!)

There's an Uno Pizza next door to the hotel. Be sure to tell your server you are a hotel guest for a discount!! That was our best surprise of the stay.

We will definitely consider this hotel for any return trips to Richmond Speedway.

My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel while traveling through Virginia. Even though
this hotel is 8 years old, it seems older. The rooms and common areas were clean. The staff was courteous. The breakfast was an average Homewood Suites breakfast.
There were a few problems.
1.There is no area to unload or load luggage when there is rain or snow that is protected by an awning or drive through.
2.The air conditioner was so loud that my husband said it sounded like the engine of his Wellcraft motorboat. It was really loud!
3.Housekeeping was somewhat lacking. An entire load of dishes was still in the dishwasher.
The light was burned out in the bathroom.
4.In the morning there was only lukewarm water in the shower until around 8:30 am.
Knowing this was an airport hotel, I knew there would be the sound of aircraft landing and
taking off. Well, this hotel felt like it must have been right at the end of the runway. You could hear the sounds of aircraft from around 6:30 am until 10:00 pm.
I normally am very pleased with Homewood Suites but this one did not meet my expectations.

Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the problems you encountered. I just wanted you to know that is not our standard and we strive every day to do better. We dont have an Awning in front of our building but we do offer umbrellas upon requestin case it is raining or snowing. As per your complain about Air conditioner, luke warm water and houskeeping issue should have never happened and we are sorry for about this. about your comments regarding Plane noise- actually that week a different Runway was in use for Planes to land therefore there was more noise than usual. but for the most part there our hotel is quite.

We would like to offer you 20% discount on your next visit. Please call us & we would be honored to have you stay again at our hotel.

Sincerely,
Management
Homewood Suites Richmond Airport, VA

We decided to stay here as a base for visiting numerous Civil War sites in the region. We checked in in the early evening after a transatlantic flight from UK. The receptionist was very helpful and speedily checked us in giving us a ground floor room without any problem. When we got to room we were a little disappointed with the kitchen facilities - good fridge, microwave and stove top but very little in the way of utensils cups and cooking pans- we had wanted to cook ourselves a meal as it was a Sunday and the hotel did not do it's hot meal at the weekend. We managed and next morning spoke to reception to ask for more equipment - it would be done that day whilst we were out we were told - it wasn't. We got back late in the evening after the evening meal was finished but were able to scrounge some utensils from the dining area and eventually a pan/frying pan was brought. Apart from this we had an excellent stay good breakfast every morning and a very comfortable suite. Staff very pleasant at all times. Rate was good as we were eligible for senior citizen rate - similar to advanced purchase but with no restrictions. Very close to freeway to enable us to get to where wanted easily. Plenty of restaurants nearby including UNOs right next door.
