Bring back daily housekeeping
We love the location. We stayed for two nights. The rooms were clean and nice. However, it would be nice to get daily housekeeping so you come back to the hotel room feeling like you're coming to a room that's been refreshed and cleaned. The WIFI was also not strong so I couldn't keep my connection. WiFI is crucial for planning the day's activities so I wish this was better. Kudos to the breakfast staff who were attentive (making sure there is ample food) and quick to clean up to make room for the next guests. They deserve two thumbs up!

4/10 Fair

Hard pass
The room had a funny smell and was in dire need of refurbishment. No housekeeping services were available due to “COVID” meaning the hotel was unwilling to pay market rates in order to staff up to pre-COVID standards. We stayed for 4 days and obviously needed the garbages taken out and supplies like shampoo, coffee and toilet paper. We were told these items had to gotten at the desk. The free breakfast was a complete disaster. Not enough food for the number of guests and not enough personnel

Not a smooth stay but still work for us
Our stay was pretty good. The room was clean. The breakfast for the price left a little to be desired but the staff was very friendly and helpful. The bed was quite uncomfortable and probably just at the end of its useful life. We had one issue on our second night of someone going up and down the hallway knocking on everyone's door in the middle of the night. Eventually someone called the police who came out and helped take care of the problem.

Reasonably Priced Hotel Near Colonial Williamsburg
Nice, no frills hotel near Colonial Williamsburg. Free breakfast was great. The room was spacious and clean. I appreciated the coin-operated washer/dryer as I needed to wash some clothes. I would stay here again.
