It's hard to know where to begin. The address may say Williamsburg, but the roadsigns say Lightfoot. It may be that you drive on the main road out to Lightfoot then circle back into Willliamsburg, but it is "out in the boonies". It's off of a road called "Lightfoot Road". If you "Google Map" the address, you'll notice that it backs onto I-64. It's tucked into the corner between I-64 and VA 199 and nothing of any importance is anywhere near by. There is also a train track about 3 blocks away. I will say we only heard the train twice, and the traffic noise wasn't apparent at night. It started about 7AM - this was the end of May. We were never there during the day. This place is "Comfort Inn nice" - plastic tub, counters and basins, which is okay. But it is not "Marriott nice" - tile bathrooms, granite counter tops, and real basins. One of the biggest problems for us was the bed. In all the traveling we've done, this was the firmest bed we've ever had. The pillows (2) were king-size, and they, too, were very solid. The place seemed clean, except for the toilet bowls. Also, we found a sock and a toy under the chest of drawers. If you're going there be sure to take your own hangers. They furnished 6 ( for a two bedroom unit), so we had to leave our clothes mostly folded and put in drawers. One thing I hadn't noticed until Wednesday night ( we were there Friday to Friday) was that there is no inside security lock. We were sitting in the living room area watching the evening news at 10:30 PM when a man walked in on us. Scared me to death. It turned out it was the fix-it man and he meant to go to the unit next to us. After that I felt very insecure. As for noise, we were in an upstairs unit on the end, so had only one "neighbor". We think the unit next to us was empty most of the time we were there. Either that or a very quiet couple (like us) was there. Thursday night we heard a lot of noise from a family that had moved in. It was just "happy noise" - adults playing with young children, but it was pretty loud. We didn't complain because we were checking out the next day and it quit at 10:30. I'm glad we don't own in this property because there were several things that weren't what they ought to be. Mostly small, but all together it was amazing to me. The scissors were missing from the knife block in the kitchen. The toilet paper in the bathroom that I used was single ply and so thin you could actually see through it. The "kleenex" was cheap and crisp. There was no cutting board in the kitchen so people were cutting on the dark green Formica counter - there were several cut marks. The eating "bar" next to the kitchen was too high to comfortably eat from (we're NOT short people) and the stools were too heavy to scoot in to a proper distance, anyway. We opted to use the large wooden table in the dining room. There were no place mats to protect the wood - we used hand towels. The glasses in the kitchen were from two very obviously different sets. The cabinets in the kitchen and bathrooms were nice finished in a dark cherry (?). But they were the type that have flat edges and should have knobs or handles - which they didn't, so you had to pry them open with your fingertips. So many had done this that the finish on the kitchen cabinets was getting worn on the corners. There was a fire place, but no instructions on how to use it. We only tried one night when we got home late from an outdoor program and we were a little cold. No one was in the office when we called. This place isn't a disaster, but it's certainly not what we've traded into before. There were three TVs. A flat screen over the fire place, and older models in each of the bedrooms. There is free wi-fi, convenient parking, and elevators so you don't have to carry luggage up stairs. We wouldn't stay here again, but then we saw everything we wanted to see, so it's doubtful we'll be in the area again. There are still a lot of places we haven't seen.
