We felt like the hotel was not as clean as it should be. One room smelt like cigars the other room had paint peeling and the mattress on the bed was broken down and slanted to one side. The breakfast was less than stellar.

The staff at this hotel were amazing! The location is prime- waking or biking distance to Williamsburg. The property was dirty- cigarette butts outside, inside carpets not vacuumed. Breakfast was good but entire eating area was filthy. Short staffed as only one person manning the food, which left no time to clean floors or tables.

OK for the price. When they say 4pm check-in they mean it. Not one minute before! Probably short handed on housekeeping staff.

Tasha was really nice and very helpful. She even stayed after her shift to unclog the toilet in my son's room. I mean, who does that!

I called them and said I fell and hurt myself and had to delay a day going. I was told no problem. I wound up getting charged more for two days then three days. I should have been charged $120 for Friday and Saturday but was actually charged $170 on Friday and $180 for Saturday. .
