“Great value”
Reviewed 20 October 2013 via mobile

Quick weekend trip to VA. From PA. With friends to go Park hopping. We were able to check in late and a decent room there was a nice free breakfast but I chose to go to Cracker Barrel Instead. Great location and lot of food places near by. And in a good location 20 min from the park and 15 min from downtown Colonial.

Stayed October 2013, travelled with family

Stayed for two nights for an impromptu trip to Busch Gardens. We reserved a two room suite which was nice since we have a teenage son. He enjoyed having his own tv and room (note there is not a door between the two rooms so privacy is limited) there were 2 bathrooms. It turned out to be a blessing because the shower curtain in one bathroom was coming off the wall. We called maintenance they came up but did not repair it. The hair dryer was falling off the wall too. I understand that when you pay less for an older place you may have some dated fixtures and decorations but there really is no excuse for a place to be dirty and for simple maintenance to be ignored. The breakfast only had carbohydrates and was limited. The front desk staff were nice and accomodating but the the room was dirty and smelled of mildew. Lots of noise from the road.!

Room Tip: try the sides the back and the front sit on main roads and road noise it high

Dear Guest,

But at the same time we also regret about the lack (ignorance) of our maintance dep.We make sure we correct it right away.We also have noted our breakefast fell below the par of your expectation.Being a budget hotel we will do our best to add more PROTINE to our breakfast.Again we do appriciate your business and your feedback.Looking forward to serve much better at your next visits with us.

Stayed here for a 4 day weekend. The location is great! Can walk to go get a drink at Uno's or Hooters. Breakfast was very slim pickings have seen better. Rooms was very clean and beds where very comfortable. Room smelt a little musty but not bad. Vinny was very nice and so was his wife. Its a great hotel for the price!!! I would recommend to stay here!

Thank you Vinney and your wife for another great visit at your lodge, I feel like we are begining a nice friendship as you made us feel like family !! We talked about our families and our grandchildren have made this their home away from home ( they like to stay at the same place each time we travel together as it is familier to them) we have stayed in the same ajoining rooms both times. A refrigerator and microwave in each room is a nice extra with children as they eat and drink 24/7. I noticed some nice improvements since our last stay in May of this year, outside painted and cleaned. Breakfast area has new coffee & juice dispensers, (2) working waffle makers and I found that all food areas well stocked each time we visited. Only once did we arrive to find breakfast room was full (we stayed (3) nights) but took the time to get caught up w/Vinney as to how business had improved over the summer and how he has learned what to expect for the next year..He is trying hard to make each guest's stay as pleasant as possible. If you let him know of any problem you might have with your room while staying at his lodge he will try to rectify it. My big problem was NO SMOKING signs and no designated smoking areas which I discussed w/Vinney and he already was working on that problem as many guest had also made comments regarding smokers not abiding the rules posted on his web site plus informing each guest upon arrival!!! All 112 rooms are now renovated and ready for guest. I will stay here again on our next visit to the Williamsburg area

Room Tip: Within walking distant to several good restaurants and shopping with a Kmart behind Lodge , also a D...

We were very happy with this hotel. The free wi-fi was very fast. The pool was also quite nice. The hotel is close to a large number of restaurants. The manager was very friendly and was happy that he could discuss the game of cricket with me. Unlike a lot of American hotels, there was a fridge in our room. The bed was comfortable. The hotel is also close to Jamestown and Colonial Williamsburg.

We generally choose Econo Lodge when we are traveling and simply want a no frills, clean place to stay. And the Williamsburg location was no exception. We were given a warm greeting, a reasonably priced, clean/quiet room. All of the room amenities were aged, but functional. The WI-FI was unusually fast and there was an added perk - a lobby desktop computer and printer. This property was very conveniently located near sever restaurants and a local Goodwill for my wife to go thrifting, as she is a passionate thrifter. This hotel is also very convenient to the local historical sites of Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown.

We are very thankful about your honest remarks on trip asvisor.Yes we do inform our every guest about this property being 100% smoke free (non smoking). We don't even have any smoking rooms in our property..But sometimes its hard to prohibit all of them if they are smoking outside the room or in public area like pool etc. We do have signs " smoking prohibited"over those area also..Again we will coninue to implement our hotel no smoking policy much more harder..And hope we can serve you much better at your next trip. We do apologize for your any inconviniences.
looking forward to see you soon.thanks,
