We are frequent visitors to Williamsburg and normally stay at Choice Hotels. To offer an idea of what we are used to, we have stayed at all of the Comfort Inns, Quality Inns, Sleep Inn and the Comfort Suites as well as a couple of others. We normally don't consider Econo Lodge because we want the little bit of extra comfort or services that the other brands offer. We booked here for a recent spur-of-the-moment trip where budget was a consideration. We chose Econo Lodge Inn and Suites because of one factor - the Tripadvisor reviews looked favorable.
I think I would agree with most of the other reviews. To be fair, you should keep in mind this is a budget hotel. Don't compare it to the Hilton, that would be unreasonable. I think they do a pretty good job given that the rates are so fair. The grounds are clean and nice, check-in was quick and painless and the rooms were in pretty good shape. The beds were comfortable, we felt safe and so on. We had an issue with our room when we got there and Vinny quickly gave us another room. I noticed that he soon went over to the first room with cleaning supplies to check it out himself, so it appears that he is on top of it and wants to make it a good place to stay. It is an older property, but you can see where they are working to make it nice. Fresh paint, landscaping, signage, etc. We ate breakfast one day and it was OK. About what we expected with waffles, bagels, juice etc. Nothing spectacular, but again, its a budget hotel and it met our expectations.
I would imagine that they are limited in what they can do, but overall I didnt think it was bad and I would stay here again. It might not be my first choice in hotels, but it would be my first choice in the "Econo Lodge" level of hotel.
